The Jungle Book

The first silver coin from the Czech Mint's four-part miniseries inspired by The Jungle Book written by Rudyard Kipling is dedicated to the human baby Mowgli and a python named Kaa.

The boy Mowgli
is human but grows up in the Indian jungle among animals. His extraordinary story began when, as a toddler, he escaped the clutches of the tiger Sher Khan and became a member of a wolf pack. As Mowgli grows up, he learns to live in the jungle, to respect its laws and to survive despite the ever-present dangers. The man-eating tiger has not forgotten him and is still hungry for the boy's blood... Life on the border between the human and animal worlds is difficult for Mowgli, but fortunately he is not alone. Not only does the kind-hearted bear Baloo, the fierce panther Bagheera and the strong wolf Akela, but also the fearsome python Kaa help him to survive the trials. This hundred-year-old snake is one of the most powerful creatures in the jungle, thanks to its hypnotic gaze. As soon as it catches sight of an animal, it walks right into its mouth. But the human baby is immune to this magic trick, so Kaa becomes its faithful protector. She helps him escape from the monkey's captivity, they meet a white cobra and they defeat a pack of vicious dholes.

The medal maker
Asamat Baltaev, DiS., who designed the coin, dedicated its reverse side to the boy's encounter with the python in the treetops. The composition is supplemented with the English inscription MOWGLI AND KAA. The obverse side of the coin then presents an Indian jungle full of unruly monkeys. As the coins of the Czech Mint are issued with the foreign licence of the island of Niue, their obverse sides also bear the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the nominal value of 1 DOLLAR (NZD) and the year of issue 2022.

Remember that you can store your complete collection of four coins in a special
collector's box that you can also find in the offer of the Czech Mint.
