The 'Mickey Through the Ages' coin collection celebrates the much-loved, Disney character Mickey Mouse and his cartoon career through the decades.
Fantasia (1940) is undoubtedly one of the most highly regarded Disney animated feature films of all times.
Mickey Mouse plays the eponymous role in the section The Sorcerer's Apprentice in this highly regarded symphonic concert.
Premiered on November 13, 1940, at the Broadway Theater in New York, Fantasia featured animation set to classical music, without any dialogue. The film was presented in Fantasound, an early stereo sound system devised at the Disney Studio, adding to the effect of the movie. The beautiful Disney animation is embellished by the classical music by Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra.
This pure silver engraved coin features a classic image of Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's apprentice instructing the brooms to carry pails of water for him, as seen in the symphonic Disney animation Fantasia (1940). The artwork of Mickey Mouse is featured in full colour against an engraved background.
The Mickey Mouse – Fantasia 1oz Silver Coin comes presented in a high-quality wooden inner coin case and themed outer packaging – which shows an illustration of Mickey from The Sorcerer's Apprentice, a section in Fantasia. The Certificate of Authenticity sits within the coin case.
The New Zealand Mint will release no more than 10,000 of the 2017 Mickey Through The Ages - Fantasia 1oz Silver Coin.
