The Jungle Book is a 1967 American animated film produced by Walt Disney Productions and released on October 18, 1967. The 19th animated feature in the Disney Animated Canon, the film is noted for being along with The Aristocats (1970) the last film project to be approved by Walt Disney himself, as he died in late 1966, before the film was released. (However, Walt did work on a few projects before his death as well, most notably the majority of Disney's animated films that came out in the 1970s.) This is also the first animated feature released after Walt Disney's death. The film was inspired by the stories about the feral child Mowgli from the book of the same name by Rudyard Kipling. The film contains a number of classic songs, including "The Bare Necessities" and "I Wanna Be Like You". Most of the songs were written by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman. The film was directed by Wolfgang Reitherman. The film grossed over $73 million in the United States in its first release.
The reverse of each one of these four Silver coins depicts the Disney movie’s protagonist (Mowgli), flanked by key character from the film. Each character is portrayed in full colour against a relief engraved background. In the bottom of the coins, the inscriptions: “1 OZ 999 FINE SILVER” – the weight and the fineness of the Silver and “DISNEY” – the animation studio. The coin’s obverse depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “NIUE” – the issue country, “2017” – the issue year and “TWO DOLLARS” - the face value.
