One of Hasbro’s longest-running toy lines, My Little Pony began with a humble horse doll with a brushable tail and mane. This would lead to the genesis of the toy line in 1983, starting with six toys but quickly flourishing into an absolutely enormous hit with a recognizable pop culture presence and a multimedia franchise. The original Eighties toys remain what most people associate with the brand, but the immensely popular toy line has shown the ability over the decades to reinvent itself for new audiences, with subsequent “generations” of the toys and their associated media periodically broadening the ponies’ appeal. The New Zealand Mint celebrates this extraordinary franchise with the 2022 1 oz Colorized Niue Silver My Little Pony Coin.

- Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

- The obverse side features the late Queen Elizabeth II in effigy.
- Classic, brightly colorized My Little Pony artwork dominates the reverse.
The My Little Pony franchise has produced multiple television shows, comics, video games, and animated features. The original cartoon series My Little Pony ‘n Friends was an adventure series, despite being produced to market what the general public saw as a relatively saccharine toy line. By the fourth and fifth generations of the franchise, it attained appeal beyond its traditional audience with productions like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
The 2022 Colorized Niue Silver My Little Pony Coin celebrates this perennially successful toy line with brightly colorized artwork accentuated with frosted details. It comes in an official box packaging with a Certificate of Authenticity to specify each coin’s unique number in the mintage.
The coin’s obverse side features Ian Rank-Broadley’s classic effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II, verifying it as legal tender of Niue. It’s accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “TWO DOLLARS,” and “2022.”
A group of classic My Little Pony characters appears on the reverse side, matching the artwork of the 1987 My Little Pony ‘n Friends animated series. Frosted details accentuate the silver background, and they’re accompanied by the pink inscription “My Little Pony.”
