Six of the most famous characters from Walt Disney Studios are captured on these stunning silver coins portraying Mickey & Friends – Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy and Pluto.Mickey Mouse coin, Minnie Mouse coin, Donald Duck coin, Daisy Duck coin, Goofy coin, Pluto coin
These unique, lovable characters debuted to the public between 1928 and 1940. Quickly achieving audience adoration, they’ve remained intensely popular with subsequent generations ever since.

With no more than 10,000 of each coin available for release worldwide, the opportunity to collect all six releases is likely to be short-lived. Officially licensed by Disney Consumer Products, they will undoubtedly be sought-after by collectors of authorised Disney merchandise.

If you’re a coin collector, gift-buyer or simply mad about Disney, don’t miss this unique opportunity to treasure Mickey & Friends, which vividly portrays Disney’s classic characters in contemporary style.

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality. Issued by NZ Mint as legal tender of Niue, each release depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.

Each coin is housed in an individual Perspex case allowing for 360 degree display. The case, which incorporates a Certificate of Authenticity, is surrounded by film-themed outer packaging illustrating the history of the beloved character. All six outer package illustrations align to create one superb continuous image.
