The most powerful of human emotions is that of love. Although many view it as one concept, it can in fact exist as a variety of different feelings, states, or attitudes that range from interpersonal affection to pleasure. Mickey and Minnie Mouse are a perfect example of interpersonal love, and the New Zealand Mint captures it perfectly.

As a cartoon character, Mickey Mouse was created in 1928 by Ub Iwerks and Walt Disney, with little clue as to how massive a global phenomenon he would eventually become in the future. Mickey first appeared in a single screen testing of Plane Crazy that year, and later made his big debut in the animated short film Steamboat Willie later that same year.
His perpetual love interest is Minnie Mouse, who made her debut in cartoons in the same year as Mickey and was created by Iwerks. The loving pair first appeared together in a Disney animated short in the 1928 film Steamboat Willie, which was the first animated short to feature coordinated sound and film. It seems only fitting that these two should be the symbol of love chosen for one of the latest Disney Silver Coins from the New Zealand Mint.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Silver Niue Disney Love Coin you’ll find the image of Mickey and Minnie from their first appearance together, sharing in a kiss. The duo are captured in full-color on the coin’s reverse with the phrase “No Finer Friends – 1928” and the word “Love” in the background.
The obverse of the Silver Disney Love Coin includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy appears on all Australian and commonwealth coinage, with this particular fourth-generation depiction created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
