2014 Disney Mickey & Friends Pluto 1oz Silver Proof Coin

His nature and personality as a tracker dog in this early film was quite different to the friendly pup we know today. However, six months later this all changed as Pluto was presented as Mickey’s pet, forging the famous friendship between these characters.

Modelled on the English Pointer breed, Pluto is a mustard-coloured, medium-sized dog with black ears. His cheerful and adventurous temperament has endeared him to many.

As he does not speak, Pluto’s performance relies on physical humour.

This has made him a pioneering figure in character animation, by expressing personality through movement, facial expressions and vocalization. Cast in his own television series in 1937, Pluto went on to appear in 48 cartoons over the following decades. One of these, Lend a Paw, won an ACADEMY AWARD ® in 1942.

In collaboration, Disney and New Zealand Mint offer these stunning 1oz silver proof coins to celebrate Disney’s most beloved characters.

Struck by The Perth Mint and issued by New Zealand Mint as legal tender under the authority of Niue Island, only 10,000 of each 1oz silver proof coin design will be released worldwide.

The reverse of each coin features an iconic coloured image of each of the ‘Mickey & Friends’ characters. Each character is set against a struck representation of a film strip and a proof quality table. Each coin’s obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadly effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2014 year-date and the monetary denomination.

Each coin is individually presented in a Perspex case allowing for 360 degree presentation. The coin case is surrounded by film-themed outer packaging illustrating the history of the character. All six outer packages illustrations align to one continuous background image, when displayed.

The Certificate of Authenticity is displayed on top of the Perspex case, within the outer packaging.
