Overseas collectible coin maker New Zealand Mint, which had announced their collaboration with Disney to create a series of limited edition counts to pay tribute to their most famous mascots last month, has unveiled their first coin in the series: Steamboat Willie! The coin series, which is slated to continue over the next two years, will be produced in both silver and gold versions, and feature some of Disney’s most iconic characters and moments. With 1928’s Steamboat Willie cartoon featuring the commercial debut of Mickey Mouse, it’s only fitting for the first coin of the series to be dedicated to such a landmark film!
