Plane Crazy was released in 1928 as an animated short featuring Mickey and Minnie Mouse. In the film, Mickey attempts to build his own airplane using scrap car parts and farm equipment on a farm with the help of some of his friends. The film marks one of the first appearances of Mikey together with his girlfriend Minnie, who gives him a horseshoe for good luck before his flight.
On the reverse of the 2016 1 oz Niue Mickey Mouse Plane Crazy Series Gold Proof Coin is the image of Mickey holding the horseshoe from Minnie Mouse as he sits in the cockpit of his plane. Engravings include the weight, purity and metal content, as well as the copyright symbol of Disney along with the year of release and name of the film.
The obverse of the Plane Crazy Series Gold Proof includes Queen Elizabeth IIs right-profile portrait. Created in 1998, this depiction is a fourth-generation portrait of Her Majesty and was created by Ian Rank-Broadley.
