Plane Crazy

Plane Crazy, an animated short film created by Disney back in 1928, was the first time the audience had ever seen the now iconic Disney character Mickey Mouse. In the cartoon, Mickey, with the help of some barnyard friends, builds an airplane and takes himself and Minnie Mouse on a crazy flight. While the movie was originally released as a silent film, it was released later on in 1929 as a “sound cartoon.”

2016 1 oz. Proof Gold Plane Crazy Coin

Struck out of 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine gold by the New Zealand Mint, this $250 legal tender coin of Niue has a diameter of 33mm. Only 500 of these gold pieces will be struck - 1/20 of the much larger 1 oz. silver coin’s mintage limit! It was struck with a proof finish just for collectors, which gives it the advantage of an exceptionally detailed design and a mirrored background.

This gold coin depicts a scene straight out of the 1928 Disney classic, Plane Crazy. Mickey sits in his hobbled-together plane, as he looks on with a huge grin at the good-luck horseshoe Minnie Mouse has just given to him. The inscriptions read “1 OZ 999 Gold © Disney – Plane Crazy, 1928.” On the obverse, Queen Elizabeth II is depicted, with the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “250 DOLLARS,” and “2016.”
