The short film Plane Crazy was the very first cartoon Walt Disney and his friend Ub Iwerks created featuring their new character Mickey Mouse in 1928. The original silent film saw an addition of sound in 1929.
Inspired by Charles Lindbergh's exploits, Plane Crazy tells the story of Mickey, who builds a rickety plane and invites Minnie aboard for the inaugural flight. Things go wrong from the start with Mickey thrown to the ground soon after take-off, leaving a hysterical Minnie as sole passenger. Mickey eventually manages to clamber back into the plane and gives Minnie an unwanted kiss. The eventful flight ends with Minnie jumping off the plane and Mickey crashing.

Here's what some of our customers are saying about this product
DISNEY 0.5 Gram .9999 Fine Gold 2016 Niue $2.50 DISNEY MICKEY THROUGH THE AGES (PLANE CRAZY) I would like to congratulate the engraver(S) of this spectacular design and emence detail on such a small coin. Nevertheless the size makes it the tiniest Niue Gold Coin that the New Zealand Mint has produced for the Disney Collection. In my own opinion makes it very rare and unique because you will be amazed once you have one in your hand with its own C.O.A. Certification Card Coin & Capsule. 5 Stars
