Mickey Through the Ages: The Band Concert 1oz Silver
Mickey Through the Ages: The Band Concert 1oz Silver: The New Zealand Mint are delighted to offer a major new programme that will run for the next two years, with eight coin releases over that period. Disney has kindly collaborated with NZM to give access to all of the major movies that Mickey Mouse has starred in over his long career. From that we have selected some of his most important movie appearances to develop this collection.
Mickey Mouse – The Band Concert begins this brand new Mickey Through the Ages coin collection from New Zealand Mint. The collection celebrates the much-loved Disney character Mickey Mouse and his cartoon career through the decades.
The first release below features Mickey from his 1935 short film, the Band Concert, the very first movie in which Mickey Mouse appeared in colour.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.
