It is hard to conjure up a more recognizable depiction of Mickey Mouse than the one that appeared in Steamboat Willie. Though this wasnt the first animated short of its era featuring the now-world-famous mouse, it was the first animated feature in world history to include synchronized video and sound. It helped launch Mickey Mouse and Walt Disney on a trajectory that would make the House of Mouse a global brand. Right now, you can buy the 2017 Proof Niue Mickey Mouse Steamboat Willie 1 oz Silver coin in perfect condition online at Provident Metals.

Obverse

Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse side of 2017 Proof Niue Mickey Mouse Steamboat Willie 1 oz Silver Coins. The Queen is shown here in the popular 1998 design from Ian Rank-Broadley. Created in 1998 for the Royal Mint of England, this image began to filter to Australia and South Pacific Commonwealth nations like New Zealand, Niue, the Cook Islands, and other nations in 1999. It depicts the Queen in right-profile relief with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara on her head.

Reverse

Arguably Mickey Mouses greatest role for its transformative nature of animation, the reverse of 2017 Proof Niue Mickey Mouse Steamboat Willie 1 oz Silver Coins feature Mickey behind the wheel of his steamboat. The jovial mouse happily spins the wheel of the boat as he whistles out a tune. This side of the coin features the inscriptions of 1 oz 999 Fine Silver, the Disney copyright, and the mint mark of the New Zealand Mint, the Southern Cross star constellation.

History

Steamboat Willie was directed by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks and released in 1928. The animated short is considered the official debut of Mickey Mouse and Minnie, even though both characters had debuted earlier in 1928 in a test screening of Plane Crazy. Steamboat Willie was the third Mickey film produced, but as mentioned earlier, it was the first one distributed widely and the first in the world to feature synchronized sound in a cartoon.
