The Mickey Through the Ages coin collection celebrates the long and colourful cartoon career of this much loved Disney character.
The coins in this collection feature classic moments from Mickey Mouse films throughout the decades.
The short film Plane Crazy was the very first cartoon Walt Disney and his friend Ub Iwerks created featuring their new character Mickey Mouse in 1928. The original silent film saw an addition of sound in 1929.
Inspired by Charles Lindbergh's exploits, Plane Crazy tells the story of Mickey, who builds a rickety plane and invites Minnie aboard for the inaugural flight. Things go wrong from the start with Mickey thrown to the ground soon after take-off, leaving a hysterical Minnie as sole passenger. Mickey eventually manages to clamber back into the plane and gives Minnie an unwanted kiss. The eventful flight ends with Minnie jumping off the plane and Mickey crashing.
The Mickey Through the Ages - Plane Crazy 1oz Silver Coin features a classic black-and-white image of Mickey in his plane, as seen in Plane Crazy. In his hand, he is holding the good-luck horseshoe presented by Minnie.
The coin comes presented in elegant themed outer packaging, featuring an illustration of Mickey as seen in Plane Crazy. The Certificate of Authenticity sits within the coin case.
The New Zealand Mint will release no more than 10,000 of the 2016 Mickey Through The Ages - Plane Crazy 1oz Silver Coin.
