Plane Crazy was introduced in 1928 by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks as a black-and-white film that followed the silent-film productions of the era. The film depicted Mickey Mouse as a farmhand trying to build his own airplane using spare parts from the farm and automobiles. The film would be re-released one year later in 1929 with the addition of sound.
Walt Disneys Plane Crazy animated short film was inspired by Charles Lindberghs exploits on his transatlantic flight France from the United States. Mickey didnt experience the same luck as Lindbergh though, with Mickey falling out of the plane shortly after takeoff and leaving a hysterical Minnie as the only passenger.

On the obverse of the coin is the traditional portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majestys effigy has featured on commonwealth currency and commonwealth coinage since her ascension to the throne of England in 1952. This depiction is a fourth-generation creation by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998.
