An enduring character on the Disney roster since he was created in 1947, Scrooge McDuck was a business tycoon named for Ebenezer Scrooge from “A Christmas Carol” and has been a comedic metonym for wealth in popular culture for generations of fans. Portrayed variously as a greedy miser and an antihero and as a thrifty adventurer, hero, and explorer, he became a fixture of the Donald Duck universe a few years after his first introduction. He went on to helm his own Disney comic book, Uncle Scrooge, and was introduced to later generations on the show DuckTales.

Generations of fans have followed the exploits of the Disney studio’s comedic cartoon heroes, and those vivid and wacky characters have given them more than just laughs in return. Often, they’ve also acted as cautionary tales or as inspirations, both roles that have been played by Scrooge McDuck. Introduced as an antagonist to Donald Duck in his original appearance, the miserly duck has at times exhibited the negative qualities of his namesake, Ebenezer Scrooge. But he has also had the chance to represent frugality and a positive entrepreneurial spirit of adventure.
The 2022 Colorized Niue Silver 75th Anniversary Scrooge McDuck Coin shows him in vivid color against a mirror-finish background. It ships fully insured in a branded display case inside an acrylic capsule, along with a Certificate of Authenticity that specifies your coin’s unique number in the mintage.
The obverse side features the famous Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II to confirm this coin as legal tender. She’s accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “TEN DOLLARS,” and “2022.”
The reverse side shows Scrooge McDuck in full color and elegant attire, counting his money against a backdrop of stacked golden coins and an overflowing treasure chest, offset against a mirror-finish background. Fine inscriptions at the coin’s rim specify its silver content and verify the Disney copyright.
