The Royal Mint reveals commemorative Alices Adventures in Wonderland coin with Sir John Tenniels original illustrations

The Royal Mint, the original maker of UK coins, has today launched their latest commemorative coin, celebrating Through the Looking-Glass on official UK coin, 150 years since its publication.

Following the popularity of the first coin in the Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland series, collectors can now purchase a commemorative £5 crown which features Tweedledum and Tweedledee, based on the original illustrations of Sir John Tenniel in the much-loved Through the Looking-Glass book.

Available in gold, silver and brilliant uncirculated, and special colour edition, the keepsake is part of a two-coin collectors’ series by The Royal Mint designer Ffion Gwillim and Sculptor Emma Noble.

The first coin launched earlier this summer featuring Alice and the Cheshire Cat – the £5 crown provides an ideal canvas to recreate the iconic illustrations in vivid colour and detail, using traditional minting techniques and innovative design technology.

More information about the Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland commemorative coin collection – which was created in collaboration with the V&A – is available at The Royal Mint website.
