We’re celebrating the Year of the Mouse with the release of a brand new four-coin collection covering Good Fortune, Prosperity, Longevity and Happiness. These concepts have been deeply woven into the Chinese language, architecture and literature throughout thousands of years of history. The values and beliefs are still relevant in contemporary Chinese life today.
This first officially licensed 1oz pure silver coin represents Good Fortune. It features a coloured and engraved image of a smiling Mickey Mouse handing his sweetheart Minnie Mouse a fortune cookie against a background of Chinese iconography. This image is taken from the Good Fortune scroll in Disney’s Happy Year of the Mouse artwork collection. This a unique large format 1oz coin sporting a huge nominal diameter of 50mm.
The entire Good Fortune scroll coin decorates the striking red box which contains the coin and the uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity. On the scroll Mickey and Minnie are seen engaged in common activities for ushering in the Lunar New Year, including cooking, cleaning and sharing gifts.
The obverse of the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and it is legal tender in Niue.
