Today we reveal the third coin in our officially licensed collection celebrating the 80th Anniversary of Disney’s Fantasia. The film premiered in 1940 and is regarded as one of the great cinematic classics of all time.
The 1oz pure silver coin shows a scene from “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”, a segment of the film. Mickey Mouse, having fallen asleep while the magical broom is doing all the work, dreams about conducting the stars. Both colour and engraving have been used for this coin design and, naturally, some of the stars have been left in silver to shine! There is also some nice relief for Mickey standing upon his rock, which also shines out in silver.
The obverse of the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and is legal tender in Niue. A Certificate of Authenticity is printed inside the packaging along with confirmation of the coin’s number in the limited mintage.
The coin carrier continues the anniversary theme by incorporating artwork from the film’s original posters. The coin itself sits snugly inside this custom-made book-style packaging.
This is a truly gorgeous collectible for any Disney fan and the worldwide mintage of only 1,940 - to reflect the year the film premiered – makes it all the more desirable! Don’t sleep on this one! Order today.
