This is the first sounding cartoon in Walt Disney World. The main character of the cartoon is the famous Mickey Mouse. The Mickey Mouse on the film did not speak, only whistling with the brisk music or sending an emotionally sigh. People remembered the little mouse that wore a hat and danced with the music. Since then, Mickey Mouse has swept the whole United States, giving people spiritual power in the Great Depression, going abroad and being famous in the world.
Above series, custom silver coins called The Mickey Through the Ages coin collection. These four custom challenge coins separately narrate four different funny stories.
The pattern of the first coin depicts the Mickey Mouse in the animated short film “The Band Concert”. It tells that Mickey as a frustrated bandleader, who need to deal with the relationship of the annoying flute playing vendor-Donald Duck-as well as a cyclone!
The theme of the second coin was based on The Brave Little Tailor (1938). This film tells about Mickey leaving town to defeat the giant. This pure custom silver coin shows a winner image of Mickey Mouse who held big scissors. I had read the picture-story book when I was a child. Then, I was shocked and admired the little mouse so much. The artwork of Mickey Mouse is featured in full blue against an engraved background.
The third coin shows the Mickey Mouse appeared as a Sorcerer’s Apprentice. He is smiling at a broom which is carrying buckets. Can you imagine what magic he will play next?
The biggest difference between the last one is displayed in black-and-white. The Image of Mickey Mouse comes from another short film—Plane Crazy. It tells that Mickey built a rickety plane with the help of his farming friends, then, he invited Minnie to aboard the flight. He is holding the good-luck horseshoe that Minnie presented.
The Mickey Mouse always symbolizes wisdom, courage and good luck. These delightful series of custom coins would make fantastic gifts for any Disney fans or coin collectors.
3. Snowman Custom Commemorative Coins
The Snowman is a children’s book published by the British writer Raymond Briggs in Hamish Hamilton in 1978. This is a book without words, composed of 167 pictures. The style is simple and warm. The book tells that on a winter morning, a little boy named James woke up and found a white outside the house – it was snowing. He happily rushed downstairs to the garden and piled up a snowman. At twelve o’clock midnight, he woke up and decided to go see the snowman. When he opened the door, he couldn’t believe his eyes, the snowman actually came alive! James and the snowman smiled at each other and politely took off their hats for self-introduction. Later, they started a magical journey… This children’s book and animation have no dialogue, mainly describe this wonderful story with pictures, movements and music.
These two set custom commemorative coins were separately released in 2018 and 2014. As you can see, the pattern of left coins shows a full-color process that describes the scene where the snowman flies over the river with a little boy and soars through the quiet moonlit sky. The picture is warm and full of the fairytale. The right one depicts a warm picture that James is hugging a little snowman, meanwhile, he is cuddled by the snowman. The obverse on both coins presents the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, with the date and issue number.
