Mickey Mouse is the most well-known cartoon character of all time. One of the most popular Mickey Mouse short films of all time is Steamboat Willie, which is the first Disney cartoon with synchronized sound. Additionally, this film introduced Minnie Mouse to the world. This film is now honored with a unique coin. Right now, you can purchase the 2016 Proof French Mickey Mouse Through the Ages 1 oz Gold Coin from Provident Metals.
Released in 1928, Steamboat Willie was the first animated short film from the Disney company to feature synchronized sound. Prior to this shorts release, Disney shorts had cinematic scores without character sounds. Additionally, it is the first cartoon to have a soundtrack that was added in post-production.
Steamboat Willie is so iconic that it was even chosen as the 13th in The 50 Greatest Cartoons book.
The obverse of each of these coins showcases the face of Mickey Mouse. Along with his face, you will see engravings of his name, the coins face value, and the year the coin was issued.
On the reverse of each of these coins, you will see the lovable Mickey Mouse from the iconic Steamboat Willie short film. In French, there is also an engraving that identifies the name of the coin collection.
These coins were created at the Monnaie de Paris in France, which opened in 864. For more than a century, this mint has produced coinage and currency for France. The Monnaie de Paris is the oldest minting institution in the world.
