The Band Concert (1935) was the first Mickey Mouse cartoon released in colour, making it an immediate success.
It tells the story of Mickey, a frustrated bandleader, who must deal with the obnoxious, flute playing concessions vendor - Donald Duck - who wrecks Mickey’s concert by playing "Turkey in the Straw" on a succession of fifes.
Every time Mickey has things under control for his band's rendition of the William Tell Overture, Donald pipes up again with "Turkey in the Straw", and the musicians unerringly begin to follow him.
The determined bandleader Mickey finally manages to complete his concert, to the last duck standing in the audience, Donald.

Here's what some of our customers are saying about this product
This is the First DISNEY 0.5 Gram Fine Gold .9999 in the series 2016 Niue $2.50 DISNEY MICKEY THROUGH THE AGES (THE BAND CONCERT) I would like to thank and 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 !
