An amusing series of commemorative coins, “Cartoon Characters”. This series created for the youngest collector depicts children’s favourite cartoon characters. The latest coin of the series is dedicated to Bolek i Lolek.
The coins have been struck using silver Ag 925 blanks, with a low mintage up to 4,000 pieces.
The first coin in the series shows Mis Uszatek (Teddy Floppy Ear), the second depicts Wolf and Hare, from the cult cartoon “Nu, pogodi!” (“Just you wait!”).
In the central part of the coin: a stylized image of the celluloid with selected scenes depicting interesting cartoon characters. To the left, at the top, along the edge the inscription: ELIZABETH II, to the right: 1 dollar, the mark of the Mint: MW. At the bottom the inscription: Niue Island.
Depicted using pad printing technology, on the central part of the coin are Bolek and Lolek in cowboy suits, riding a horse. The scene features one of the boys' adventures, as they head to the Wild West. The background on the right shows another shot of the main characters, where we see them throwing a lasso. There are also cacti and rocks in the background, characteristic of the Wild West's landscape. At the top of the rock there is a gunman pursued by the boys. The scenes chosen by the designer are highly dynamic, which emphasizes the fast action of the cartoon and variety of adventures of "Bolek and Lolek".
