All 2017 1 oz Niue Mickey Mouse Gallopin’ Gaucho Series Silver Proof Coins are unique in the release schedule for one particular reason. While the three gold weights in reach release have just a standard design on the gold proof, each silver coin has a colorized image of the same design features, giving it extra beauty and collective appeal.
Your 2017 1 oz Gallopin’ Gaucho Silver Proof coin ships from the New Zealand Mint inside one of its beautiful display boxes, which itself is housed within a colorful shipper that bears artwork from The Gallopin’ Gaucho. Included with your purchase is a Certificate of Authenticity.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Niue Mickey Mouse Gallopin’ Gaucho coin is the image of Mickey Mouse in the title role as a gaucho. The term is used for cowboys in South America, and in Mickey’s role he mimics the feature film of 1927 The Gaucho, which was created by Douglas Fairbanks.
The obverse of all 2017 1 oz Niue Mickey Mouse Gallopin’ Gaucho Series Silver Proof Coins includes Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy. Her Majesty appears on the obverse of all New Zealand and commonwealth coins, with this design from Ian Rank-Broadley created in 1998 as the fourth-generation effigy since 1952.
