Now, you can bring that landmark scene to your collection with this 2017 Niue One Ounce Silver Disney Mickey Mouse Steamboat Willie Bullion Coin!
Once again, Disney has teamed up with the New Zealand Mint to create a coin for the ages, minted in one ounce of 99.9% pure silver. This legal tender two dollar Niue coin features Mickey at the steamboat's wheel, ready to whistle a tune and sound the horns -- right before Pete, the REAL captain, kicks Mickey off the bridge!
This detailed recreation is surrounded by a gorgeously engraved burst of lines as well as the mark of the New Zealand Mint. Flip the coin over, and you'll find Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Released in 1928, "Steamboat Willie" is the very first historical film featuring Mickey Mouse. The coin is coated with Black Ruthenium, which is a type of platinum metal that looks like a dark platinum, but is 100 times Rarer. Ruthenium is a chemical element with the symbol RU & Atomic # 44.
It is a rare transition metal belonging to the platinum group of the periodic table. Limited Edition of 500!
