The second coin in the Fairy Tale series features a young, ordinary girl whose royal identity is established in a very ingenious way – by testing her sensitivity through a green Swarovski pea-sized stone.
The reverse of the coin shows a girl surrounded by a princess’s room full of various cozy details.
The obverse of the coin features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Technologies such as digital printing, antique finish and high relief were used in the production of the coin. “The Princess and the Pea” is sold in a special round white box decorated with tiny peas.
