Mickey Through the Ages launched in 2016 with four exciting new designs, each one chronicling the changing imagery and various roles of Mickey Mouse at a time when he was anything but the global icon he is today. Previous releases include depictions of Mickey from The Band Concert, Plane Crazy, the Brave Little Tailor, and Fantasia.
In The Gallopin’ Gaucho, Mickey plays the role of a cowboy from the plains of Argentina. The six-minute animated short is based upon Douglas Fairbanks’ The Gaucho, which took place in the Pampas of Argentina, and depicts the cowboy life of South America’s famed gauchos.
The obverse of all 2017 1 oz Niue Mickey Mouse Gallopin’ Gaucho Series Gold Proof coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. A 1998 creation from Ian Rank-Broadley, this design marks the fourth-generation depiction of Her Majesty, who has appeared on the obverse of all British and commonwealth coins since 1952.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Niue Mickey Mouse Gallopin’ Gaucho Series Gold Proofs feature the image of that lovable mouse as a gaucho. Walt Disney co-directed the film with Ub Iwerks, and was solely in charge of production. Iwerks not only co-directed, but also handled all of the animation for the film.
Each 2017 1 oz Niue Mickey Mouse Gallopin’ Gaucho Series Gold Proof Coin ships inside of a beautiful New Zealand Mint display box, which is packed inside of a themed shipper sleeve that features colorful artwork from The Gallopin’ Gaucho. You’ll also receive a numbered Certificate of Authenticity to go along with the coin.
