In 1835, Andersen released his first book of fairy tales which were not initially well-received. The design of the coin features four stories from this initial book. The central design shows a statue of ‘The Little Mermaid,’ the story of a young mermaid so desperate to become human she takes drastic measures to fulfil her wishes. An outer design depicts Thumbelina, the story of a thumb-sized girl destined for bigger things, the Princess and the Pea – the story of a girl whose royal identity is only confirmed when she sleeps on a pile of mattresses and can feel the pea that is placed on the bottom mattress and the ‘Tinder Box’ – the story of a soldier who acquires a magical tinder box capable of summoning three dogs to do his bidding to woo a locked-up Princess. Also depicted is an impression of Andersen dreaming up these amazing stories. 

The reverse of the coin is made in blue titanium while the obverse of the coin is gold coloured. This very special two-tone Titanium also has a precious metal version with a ring of sterling silver. Approved by Buckingham Palace, the obverse of the coin bears a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. It is the world’s first bi-colored Titanium coin! Due to titanium’s rarity and the difficulty of striking such innovative coins, only a small number will be made. Order now to own this genuine piece of Hans Christian Andersen history.
