ABOUT STEAMBOAT WILLIE
Steamboat Willie has been at the helm of Disney animation from the early days, steering it forward through the seas of imagination. Released at the Colony Theatre in New York on November 18, 1928, Steamboat Willie was directed by Walt Disney and is considered the debut of Mickey Mouse.
Through the decades since its release, Steamboat Willie has received widespread critical acclaim, not only for introducing one of the world’s most popular cartoon characters, but for its innovation. The film is notable for being the first cartoon with synchronised sound. It was also the first cartoon to feature a post-produced soundtrack using a fifteen piece band and the voice of Walt Disney himself as Mickey.
This collectible coin face captures a still frame from the iconic scene where Mickey Mouse is seen cheerfully standing at the boats wheel. Wrapped around the top of the collectible coin is the engraved name of this breakthrough cartoon, Steamboat Willie, and the year of its release, 1928.
This features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Country of Issue – Niue.
The Steamboat Willie 1 oz Silver Coin is presented in a classic wooden coin case which sits inside a theme printed outer box. When opened, the coin and Certificate of Authenticity are displayed.
