The magic that built much of Disney’s so-called Magic Kingdom in the studio’s early days was comedy, and it was a cast of distinctive animated characters that brought the laughs and garnered the public love that would make the company a powerhouse of entertainment. One of the first of those characters, originally named Dippy Dawg, made his debut in 1932. Before long, he acquired his modern name: Goofy, a loyal and fun-loving member of the core Disney cast who formed a legendary comedic trio with Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse. One of the most famous animated characters ever created, Goofy went on to have an enduring appeal that’s celebrated today by the 2022 1 oz Silver Proof Niue Colorized Disney Goofy 90th Anniversary Coin.
