Can you believe that Lewis Carroll’s famous fantasy children’s book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass have been entertaining audiences across the globe for more than 150 years?
Now, The Royal Mint has just released TWO BRAND NEW UK coins celebrating Alice and the inhabitants of Wonderland!
We invite you to join us for a very important tea party to take a look at these exciting new coins that are the perfect addition to any growing coin collection…
Two NEW UK Coins
The first coin features Alice alongside the cheeky Cheshire Cat perched in a tree. Alice fans will remember this iconic scene from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland when she first meets him outside the Duchess’s house.
The Cheshire Cat is known for constantly grinning, and disappearing and reappearing whenever it fancies, sometimes just leaving behind its toothy grin. It is the only character in the book to listen to Alice and teaches her the bizarre rules of Wonderland.
The second coin celebrates the sequel Through the Looking-Glass. In this charming coin design we see Alice depicted with the mischievous twins Tweedledum and Tweedledee.
In the book the twins are dressed as schoolboys and don’t hesitate to fight with one another over silly things. They show Alice the sleeping Red King and tell her about the Walrus and the Carpenter.
These two coins are available in a range of specifications – the Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland coin is available to own now, and you have the chance to get ahead of the crowd and PRE-ORDER the Through the Looking-Glass coin too, to complete your UK Alice collection…

High demand expected
Lewis Carroll’s nonsense fairytale about a girl called Alice is undeniably one of the best-known and most popular works of English-language fiction. Its popularity is clear when you consider it’s been adapted into theatre and ballet shows, not to mention several blockbuster Disney films.
Alice collectables are in high-demand – a ‘legendary’ 1865 first edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (one of only 22 known to be in existence) went under the hammer in 2016 for £1.3-£2 million. This confirms that these NEW UK COINS will be highly sought-after.

It’s hard to believe that almost 25 years ago the nation lost its People’s Princess. Diana, Princess of Wales, was famously known for her compassion and commitment to good causes. Many of her patronages included children’s and cancer charities, and her work advocating for mental health and HIV became world famous.
Diana’s ability to touch the hearts of everyone is remembered by millions around the world. Today, Thursday 1st July 2021, on what would have been Princess Diana’s 60th Birthday a special statue is due to be unveiled.
And it’s causing quite the excitement in the collecting community…
Commissioned by both the Princes
In 2017, Princes William and Harry announced they were commissioning a statue for their late mother to ‘help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on their mother’s life and legacy…and recognise their mother’s positive impact’ .
Both Princes have signed off and approved the design together.
Placed in Diana’s favourite spot
The statue will be unveiled in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace, which is said to have been Diana’s favourite spot. In fact, in 2017 for the 20th anniversary of her death, the garden was transformed into a beautiful tribute to her. Featuring displays of forget-me-nots, white lilies, white roses, tulips, and Cosmo daisies. The white and cream hues were a nod to Diana’s love for lighter shades.
And importantly for collectors
The statue itself has been designed by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS, who has a glittering history of commissioned work for The Royal Mint. Most notably are his portrait design of Queen Elizabeth II featured on all UK coins between 1998 and 2015, and the recent UK Prince Philip memorial coin. His work has also featured on many medals and commemorative coins, including the UK 2012 Diamond Jubilee £5 Coin, the 2002 Golden Jubilee Crown, and the Queen Mother Centenary Crown.
With such an established career, it’s safe to say that many collectors are excited to see the result of Rank-Broadley’s latest work for this special statue.
And as this year marks what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday, alongside the new statue unveiling multiple commemoratives have been issued to pay tribute to the People’s Princess. If you’d like to pay tribute to the late Princess, you can see the full range available by clicking here.
