The “Mickey Through the Ages” coin collection celebrates the much-loved Disney character Mickey Mouse and his cartoon career through the decades.
Mickey’s Delayed Date was released on 3 October 1947. It was one of the last cartoons to feature Walt Disney as the voice of Mickey Mouse. This pure gold coin features a classic engraved image of Mickey Mouse in a tux running late for his date with Minnie Mouse, as seen in the hilarious Disney animation Mickey’s Delayed Date (1947).
In this story Minnie Mouse angrily phones Mickey from a party to remind him about their date, which he has forgotten. With the aid of Pluto, he gets dressed in his tux – but unwittingly leaves the tickets behind. Fortunately, Pluto runs after Mickey with them, but on the way they tangle with a trash can. Minnie sees Mickey with his torn clothes, but to Mickey’s amazement she is not mad and tells him he has a “cute costume” for the “hard times” costume party.
The Mickey Mouse – Mickey’s Delayed Date 0.5g gold coin comes presented on an attractive, themed, printed card. The Certificate of Authenticity is printed on the card reverse.
This original coin would make a perfect gift for any Disney fan or coin collector and is available to order now!
