The New Zealand Mints popular Mickey Through the Ages coin program is rolling on with the release of another brilliant design depicting one of Walt Disney’s earliest Mickey Mouse characters from an animated film. This time we see Mickey in the film PLANE CRAZY, and this imagery is available again on silver and gold coins. Right now, you can get the 2016 Proof Niue Mickey Mouse Plane Crazy Series 1 oz Silver Coin online at Provident Metals.
Mickey Mouse may be a global brand in 2016, but back in 1928 he was little more than an idea in the mind of animator and voice-over artist Walt Disney. One of the first appearances of the Mickey Mouse character came in the 1928 short filmPLANE CRAZY.
In the black-and-white film, Mickey Mouse attempts to build a rickety plane out of spare car parts and farm equipment with the help of some friends on the farm. This film marked one of the first appearances of Mickey alongside his girlfriend, Minnie Mouse, and Mickey eventually invites her aboard his roughshod plane after she presents him with a horseshoe for good luck.
The obverse features the familiar right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, this design stands as the fourth-generation depiction of Her Majesty used on commonwealth coins since 1952. It includes engravings of her name, the nation of issue, face value, and year of issue for the coin.
On the reverse of the 2016 Proof Niue Mickey Mouse Plane Crazy Series 1 oz Silver Coin is the image of Mickey as he sits in the makeshift cockpit of his plane. Unlike other silver coins in the Mickey Through the Ages series, this coin has black-and-white colorization to the design only because the original film was in black-and-white.
All 2016 Proof Niue Mickey Mouse Plane Crazy Series 1 oz Silver Coins arrive in a wooden display box, include a Certificate of Authenticity, and ship inside of a Mickey Through the Ages,PLANE CRAZY-themed shipper box that includes full artwork from the short film.
