“Akademia Pana Kleksa” brings generations together - the sale of the only licensed coin has started

5 january 2024

A collector coin with the title character of the latest film adaptation of "Akademia Pana Kleksa" has been added to the offer of the Mint of Poland. This is a real treat for both numismatic enthusiasts and film lovers. Although the official premiere of the film takes place today, the modernised version of Jan Brzechwa's story has already managed to conquer the hearts of audiences at pre-release screenings.

“Welcome to our fairy tale!”

The “Akademia Pana Kleksa” coin was struck in a limited edition of 700 pieces. It is made of top-quality silver and has a denomination of 1 dollar. It can be purchased at: kleks.mennica.com.pl. It is worth noting that the Mint of Poland has exclusive rights to sell the coin with the image of the main character of the blockbuster film directed by Maciej Kawulski. So far, even before the official premiere, the film has been watched by nearly 440,000 viewers.

The "Akademia Pana Kleksa" coin is an original gift not only for cinema lovers. Numismatic enthusiasts will appreciate the original concept and - as always with the Mint of Poland - attention to the smallest details. The use of laser matting, microprinting and digital printing allowed for a faithful reproduction of the character played by Tomasz Kot in the film version.

Mr Kleks connects generations

The Mint of Poland consistently engages in initiatives aimed at promoting culture and art. The latest coin premiere, linked to this cinema release, is not only an attractive element of the collection. It is also an invitation to the world of fantasy and adventure and an opportunity for representatives of different generations to share their emotions after watching the film.

"The "Akademia Pana Kleksa" coin is a link between older viewers, who remember the previous film adaptation and the book by Jan Brzechwa, and younger viewers of this exciting story. The multidimensional nature of the story, the attractive visuals along with the music, are a recipe for a long-lasting memory for all of us, regardless of which generation we represent," says Katarzyna Budnicka-Filipiuk, President of the Management Board of the Mint of Poland.

The film's promotion is accompanied by the songs „Jestem twoją bajką” performed by sanah and „Całkiem nowa bajka”, which was jointly sung by IGO, Kaśka Sochacka, Mrozu, Artur Rojek, Brodka, Ralph Kaminski, Bedoes and Sokół.
