Mickey Mouse made his theatrical debut in the 1928 animated short Steamboat Willie. The film was originally produced in black and white by Walt Disney Studios, and marked the official debut of Mickey Mouse and Minnie, who also appeared in the animated short. However, he actually debuted in two previous films, including Plane Crazy, but Disney scrapped both from distribution because he wanted to produce the first fully synchronized sound cartoon after he saw The Jazz Singer.

One of Mickey Mouse’s earliest acquaintances, aside from his beloved Minnie Mouse, was his trusty dog Pluto. In the animated short film Mickey’s Nightmare, Pluto incessantly bothers Mickey as he is saying his nightly prayers before bed. As Pluto climbs into Mickey’s bed while he’s sleeping, the dog’s face licking continues throughout a nightmare Mickey has about marrying Minnie and having children together. Mickey’s Nightmare was a black-and-white film produced by Walt Disney in 1932.

The obverse of the 2016 ¼ oz Proof Gold French Mickey Mouse Through the Ages Coin is the image of Mickey as he walks along in the animated short film Mickey’s Nightmare. The designs include the use of an engraving, in French, that identifies the coin collection’s name.

On the reverse of all Proof French Mickey Mouse Through the Ages Coins, both silver and gold, is the iconic profile of Mickey Mouse. This well-known image includes his facial features, and engravings of the face value, his name, and the year of issue for the coins.

All French Mickey Mouse Through the Ages coins are produced at the official sovereign mint of the French government, the Monnaie de Paris. Created in 864, it is the oldest continually operating institution in the world and has always been the primary issuer of French coinage, though it was assisted by other mints in provincial cities during the Middle Ages.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
