Fantasia was one of the few Walt Disney creations to suffer during its original production run. Released in November 1940, the film faced several hurdles to hauling in millions at the box offices, including the lack of access to theaters in Europe as a result of World War II. Right now, the 2017 1 oz Niue Mickey Mouse Fantasia Series Silver Proof Coin is available from JM Bullion.

Each of the coins in the Mickey Through the Ages collection includes a new design with release on four different precious metal products. The 2017 1 oz Niue Mickey Mouse Fantasia Series Silver Proof coin is the only silver version, with gold products available in 1 oz, oz, and Gram of .9999 pure gold.
Fantasia was released in 13 different cities across the US in November 1940, but was extremely expensive to put on as Walt Disney leased theaters in each of those cities and brought in special fantasound systems to properly provide audio accompanying the film. Fantasia has been reissued numerous times throughout the past 76 years, helping its overall box office haul become successful.
The reverse of the 2017 1 oz Niue Mickey Mouse Fantasia Series Silver Proof coin includes the image of Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerers Apprentice, with full colorization added to bring the iconic character to life as seen in the feature film.
On the obverse of all Mickey Mouse Fantasia Series coins is the iconic image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty has appeared on the obverse of commonwealth coinage since 1952 when she ascended to the throne of England. This depiction comes from Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 and is the fourth-generation image of the Queen.
Each 2017 1 oz Niue Mickey Mouse Fantasia Series Silver Proof Coin available here ships in a beautiful wooden inner case for easy display, and arrives in a Mickey Mouse, Fantasia-themed shipper with full color artwork.
