A jeweler in Tokyo’s Ginza shopping district on Wednesday put on sale a ¥100 million 2015 calendar made of platinum and featuring images from the hit Disney animation “Frozen.”

The calendar is on display at the flagship store of Tanaka Kikinzoku Jewelry K.K., a unit of Tanaka Holdings Co.

The jeweler has sold gold calendars every year since 2006 but adopted platinum this time to recall the movie’s snow world.

The plate is made of roughly 10 kg of platinum. It measures 1.2 m by 87 cm and includes a frame and pedestal. Its back features images of the movie’s characters. “Frozen” was this year’s box-office winner in Japan.

Tanaka Kikinzoku will display the calendar in Ginza until Sunday and later put it on display at other outlets nationwide. It will take orders until the end of March.
