Description:

Through the decades since its release, 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.

In 1994, Steamboat Willie was voted the thirteenth greatest cartoon of all time and selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry 1998, being deemed culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant.

The Disney – Steamboat Willie gold and silver coins are the first in a two-year program of regular releases featuring Disney’s most loved characters.

Each magical release portrays a scene from Disney’s Steamboat Willie – an animated film released in New York on 18 November 1928 which received widespread acclaim for its innovation and debut of Mickey Mouse.
