The animated cartoon Mickey’s Delayed Date didn’t set any precedent in the film industry like some of Walt Disney’s other early Mickey Mouse cartoons. It wasn’t the first color animated film or one with synchronized sound and animation, but it was special in one way. The cartoon was the final one to feature the voice of Walt Disney as Mickey Mouse.

When the scene opens on Mickey’s Delayed Date, a tired Mickey is awoken from his nap on the couch by the ringing of his phone. Mickey is distressed to learn that he has forgotten about a date with his beloved Minnie, but she is none too pleased that he seems to have forgotten their big day.
With the help of Pluto, Mickey prepares for his date by getting into his best tux, top hat, and grabbing his cane before he heads out. Thankfully Pluto catches on where Mickey does not, as he leaves so fast he forgets to grab his tickets for the gala. Pluto chases him down and catches up to him just as he meets Minnie, slipping the tickets into his pocket.
On the obverse of all Mickey Through the Ages coins you’ll find the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy appears on all coinage from the New Zealand Mint, and this particular design is a fourth-generation image created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
The reverse of the Mickey’s Delayed Date coin in the collection includes the image of Mickey Mouse, dressed in his tux with a top hat and cane, as he speeds off to meet Minnie Mouse for their date. Though he’s dressed all dapper, mishaps along the way actually help him out by making him look ragged for what turns out to be a “Hard Times” costume party.
Each 2017 1 oz Niue Mickey Mouse Mickey’s Delayed Date Series Gold Proof arrives inside of a wooden display box with colorized image of the Certificate of Authenticity on the underside of the lid. The wooden box ships inside of a themed shipper that features colorized artwork from Mickey’s Delayed Date.
