Coin Story

Apart from the fairy tales which are well-known around the world, the Fairy Tales series also presents national fairy tales with a universal message. The images on the coins are little gems which capture many symbols due to which the fairy tales are no more ordinary narratives but touch upon the world of magic.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll published in 1865 is a narrative about the adventures of a little girl in the enchanted world as well as about her relations with strange creatures which live in there. Each meeting results in a story with a moral. The novel employs the convention of an absurd dream, still it is full of allegories, satirical parodies, linguistic and mathematical references.

Reverse Design

On the right - the title heroine of Lewis Carroll’s novel – Alice who holds a rabbit in her hands. In the upper part of the coin - an ornament in the form of a spiral which depicts other characters and symbols from the novel. The spiral turns into winding stairs which are finished at the bottom with a small hall and mysterious door leading to the wonderful garden. In the upper part of the coin - a red zircon in the shape of a heart which symbolizes the queen of hearts. On the left, along the rim - a semicircular inscription in Belarusian: “Alice's Adventures in Wonderland”.

Obverse Design

The central part of the coin depicts a boy and a girl sitting on the moon and reading fairy tales with stars in the background. Above: the emblem of the Republic of Belarus and a semicircular inscription in Russian saying: “The Republic of Belarus”. In the lower part of the coin, along the rim - the face value of the coin in Belarusian – “twenty roubles”. Above - the year of issue: 2007.
