Mickey Mouse is the undisputed king of Disneys empire. As the most well-known and beloved Disney character, it is no surprise that numerous coins bear Mickeys image. The New Zealand Mint has created the Mickey Through the Ages Series of coins for Niue to honor everyones favorite mouse. Today, you can purchase the 2016 Proof Niue Mickey Mouse Brave Little Tailor Series 1/4 oz Gold Coin with a special wooden case and Certificate of Authenticity.
The film THE BRAVE LITTLE TAILOR features Mickey as a tailor who takes on a giant to save Minnie Mouse. The plot is set in medieval times, and Mickey has to use his brain to defeat the strength and size of the giant. In the end, he defeats the giant and wins the hand of Princess Minnie. The movie is based on a fairy tale by the Grimm brothers. It was nominated for an Academy Award in 1939.
The image on the obverse of each coin is that of Queen Elizabeth II. Her effigy has appeared on all commonwealth coinage since she took the throne in 1952. The design featured on these coins was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
The reverse of each 2016 Proof Niue Mickey Mouse Brave Little Tailor Series 1/4 oz Gold Coin bears the image of Mickey Mouse from the movie. He is depicted leaning against the handle of a sword with a big smile on his face.
All of the coins in the Mickey Through the Ages series are minted at the New Zealand Mint in Auckland. It is the only minting facility in the country, and it is privately owned. The New Zealand Mint doesnt produce any federal coinage for the country. Instead, those coins are minted at the Royal Canadian Mint and the Royal Mint in Great Britain.
