New Zealand Mint released the Mickey Through the Ages Series in 2016 to honor the brilliant cartoons created by Walt Disney that feature everyone’s favorite mouse. As the third releases in the series, the Plane Crazy coins showcase artwork from one of Mickey’s earliest films. Other releases in the series include imagery from the animated film The Band Leader and The Brave Little Tailor.
In the latest design from the series, Mickey Mouse can be seen on the reverse of each 2016 1/2 Gram Gold Niue Mickey Mouse Plane Crazy Series Proof Coin standing in the cockpit of the ramshackle plane he is building. The plane is made out of spare car and farm equipment parts. With the help of a few of Mickey’s farm buddies, they finish the plane. In the image, you can see Mickey holding the lucky horseshoe that Minnie Mouse gifted him for luck.
On the obverse of each coin, Queen Elizabeth II’s image is seen in right-profile. The image was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. It is the fourth depiction of the Queen seen on New Zealand coinage since she was crowned.
Every coin in this listing arrives in a plastic card featuring artwork from the animated film. On one side of the card, you can see the Certificate of Authenticity for the coin.
