This IOM 2014 Crown Coin is based upon a 2012 award winning British animated short film The Snowman and The Snowdog which is the sequel to The Snowman, and was created to mark the 30th anniversary of the original short film. The Snowman and The Snowdog is dedicated to John Coates (the film’s producer, who died in September 2012) and features a new song called “Light the Night” by former Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows. The Snowman and The Snowdogwon the Televisual Bulldog Award 2013 in the Best Children’s category.
The Snowman and The Snowdog beautifully captures the magic and excitement of the original film as well as being a heart-warming story about love, loss and friendship. When a young boy, Billy, moves to a new house, he discovers a secret box hidden under the floorboards. In it are a hat, scarf, some lumps of coal and a shrivelled tangerine – a snowman-making kit! Later that day it snows and Billy builds a Snowman and, with a little spare snow, a Snowdog. That night, at the stroke of midnight, The Snowman and The Snowdog magically come to life. The boy awakes and joins them on an amazing adventure.
This IOM 2014 Crown Coin features these loveable characters from the film and shows The Snowman, The Snowdog and Billy flying high above the rooftops.
The back shows Queen Elizabeth II.
