Lion King’s Newest Coin is finally Here! 2021’s Uncirculated Hakuna Matata 1 oz. Silver!
Over the last few years, Disney’s foray into collectible coins has produced some of the most sought after and popular pieces created in recent memory. They started with the iconic Disney Classic and Star Wars coins, both of which quickly became fan-favorites among Silver Dollar collectors! While these coins were popular, it was in 2019 that they truly hit a home-run when they released the Lion King Anniversary Silver Dollars!
These 2019 Lion King coins were struck to honor the 25th Anniversary of the film, which is consistently ranked among the best movies of all time – and their popularity certainly proved it: they sold out almost immediately!
We are proud to announce the arrival of the newest coins in the incredible Disney Lion King 1 oz. Silver Series: the 2021 uncirculated Hakuna Matata!
‘Hakuna Matata’… A Wonderful Phrase Forever Immortalized in Silver!!
Disney’s recent foray into the bullion market has stirred up quite the frenzy! The 2017 & 2018 pieces (2017: Steamboat Willie/Darth Vader // 2018: Stormtrooper/Scrooge McDuck) were all incredibly popular and lead to almost immediate sellouts with mintages of just 250,000... so saying collector demand would be high is an understatement! So how did they make these 1 oz. silver coins even better? They decided to limit the 1 oz. silver Lion King coins to a maximum allowed mintage of just 25,000 --- Making them some of the rarest bullion pieces ever made by Disney!
The design of this is coin features one of the most iconic scenes in the entire movie: Simba, Timon, and Pumbaa dancing and singing while crossing a log in front of a massive full moon during their Musical montage of Simba growing older. The Inscriptions of ‘1 OZ 999 Fine Silver’ and ‘© Disney’ are also visible beneath the scene.
The reverse of this Disney coin displays an image of Queen Elizabeth II and was produced by the Perth Mint on behalf of the Island of Niue Way. Each Hakuna Matata 1oz. Silver dollar will be struck from .999 fine silver and arrive encapsulated and in a custom display pouch.
