2021 Shrek 20th Anniversary 1oz .999 Silver Colourised Coin
Shrek 20th Anniversary
Originally based on a children’s picture book of the same name, the rights to Shrek were purchased by Stephen Spielberg and made into the DreamWorks film that we all know and love today. Shrek was originally voiced by Chris Farley, but later reworked with Mike Meyers after Farley passed away in the middle of the project. Mike Meyers brought his signature humour and Scottish accent to the role and made the character who he is today. Shrek undermines every expectation of the selfless knight in shining armour who sets forth to rescue the damsel in distress.
When a local tyrant, Lord Farquaad (played by John Lithgow), begins rounding up fairy tale creatures and dumping them at Shrek’s swamp, the titular anti-hero angrily sets out only to have them removed. Conscious of being judged for what he is, Shrek turns out to be a more nuanced character and endears himself to the audience as the misunderstood underdog.
The 2021 Shrek 20th Anniversary 1oz Silver Colourised Coin has a maximum mintage of 2,000 worldwide.
The reverse features the officially licensed Shrek logo along with Shrek with his arm around his pal Donkey while smiling and giving a thumbs up in vivid colour. The weight, purity and DreamWorks lettering can also be seen on the reverse.
The obverse features the Public Seal of Niue, the monetary denomination at the top as well as the 2021 year-date located at the bottom.
Each individual coin comes in a Shrek themed plastic polymer tamper evident package.
