2014 Disney 2-Coin Gold Proof Set – NGC PF70 Ultra Cameo
The first two coins in the Sold Out Disney series, Steamboat Willie and Donald Duck, both in perfect PF70 Ultra Cameo.
Since its release in 1928, Steamboat Willie has received widespread acclaim for introducing one of the world’s most popular cartoon characters, and for its innovation. The film is notable for being the first cartoon with synchronized sound and the first to feature a post-produced soundtrack. The film also featured Walt Disney himself as Mickey.
Donald Fauntleroy Duck is one of the most beloved Disney characters, first appearing in the cartoon The Wise Little Hen, released in 1934. Throughout the next two decades, Donald appeared in over 150 theatrical releases, several of which were recognized at the Academy Awards. An anthropomorphic white duck, with a yellow bill and feet, Donald wears a sailor suit with a bow tie. Famous for his semi-intelligible speech and his mischievous and irritable personality, Donald has a positive outlook on life and is devoted to his friends. Included in TV Guide's greatest cartoon characters of all time, Donald has appeared in a total of 178 films, more than any other Disney character.
The Disney Steamboat Willie and Donald Duck Gold Coins are the first two coins in a two-year program of regular releases featuring Disney's most loved characters.
