The UK 2021 Alice Through The Looking Glass Silver coin
Alice through the looking- glass silver coin!
Over 150 years ago the story of ‘Alice’ first came to life as author Lewis Carroll narrated his tale of nonsense to his very first listener, 10 year-old Alice Liddell, which he improvised as he went along. Alice begged him to write the tale down and the result was Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
To celebrate this magical tale over 150 years on, you can pay tribute to Alice in Wonderland and Lewis Carroll with next coin in the Royal Mints Series – The Official UK Alice Through the Looking-Glass coin.
The coin features two of the book’s most iconic characters, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, originally illustration by Sir John Tenniel that was used in the first publication of Through the Looking-Glass.
A silver coin with a charming legacy
The real collectability comes in the story behind the coin and the enchanting tale of Alice in Wonderland.
It is rare for a children’s story to have such a timeless and worldwide appeal – and even more surprising that it can be light-hearted, reflective, disturbing, fashionable, beautiful and unusual all at once, combining almost every aspect of popular culture imaginable.
Alice and her truly remarkable legacy will surely endure for centuries to come.
