Coin Story

This silver proof coin with a serrated edge is dedicated to the Cartoons around "Cipollino". Cipollino, or Little Onion, is a fictional character from Gianni Rodari's eponymous Tale of Cipollino, also known under its 1957 renamed title Adventures of Cipollino, a children's tale about political oppression. The story of Cipollino was popular enough to have a ballet staged in Ukrainian Academic ballet and opera theatre named after T.Shevchenko in 1974, composed by Karen Khachaturian and choreographed by Genrik Alexandrovich Maiorov. Cipollino fights the unjust treatment of his fellow vegetable townfolk by the fruit royalty in the garden kingdom. The main theme is the struggle of the underclass against the powerful, good versus evil, and the importance of friendship in the face of difficulties.

Reverse Design

This proof quality coin captures Cipollino on the street. The characters are very detailed and offset themselves against the background, due to their color. You will also find the official “Soyuzmultfilm” trademark on the face of the coin.

Obverse Design

Each coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.


The "Cipollino - Cipollino" 1 oz silver coin comes in a nostalgic box, based on the original drawings of the cartoon. The Certificate of Authenticity is placed inside the packaging.
