The second coin from the exciting new Disney Princess coin series features the beautiful Princess Aurora, the star of Disney’s 1959 animated film, Sleeping Beauty.
Sleeping Beauty was based on The Beauty Sleeping in the Wood by Charles Perrault and Dornröschen by The Brothers Grimm. Perrault called his heroine Aurora, while the Grimms' "Little Briar Rose" referred to their princess as Briar Rose. In their 1959 animation Sleeping Beauty, Disney used both names.

Sleeping Beauty tells the story of Princess Aurora and Maleficent, the evil fairy who cast a dark spell over her at birth, declaring that before Aurora reaches her sixteenth birthday she will fall into a deep sleep by pricking her finger on the spindle of a spinning-wheel. With the help of Aurora’s three guardian fairies, Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather, the curse is altered so that Aurora will instead fall into a deep, enchanted sleep, from which she can only be woken by the kiss of her true love.
