Mickey Mouse was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks. He made his first public appearance in the short film “Steamboat Willie,” which premiered on November 18, 1928. This marked the beginning of Mickey’s journey as a beloved and iconic cartoon character.

Over the years, Mickey’s design has undergone some changes while still retaining his recognizable characteristics. In his early years, Mickey had round black eyes with white pupils, a more angular body shape, and a mischievous personality. As animation techniques improved and his character developed, Mickey’s design became more refined, his eyes became larger and more expressive, and his personality evolved into a more wholesome and caring one.

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of the 2023 1 oz Proof Colorized Silver Disney 100 Years of Wonder Mickey Mouse Coin. This design is Ian Rank-Broadley’s 1998 bust of Her Late Majesty and captures the Queen in right-profile relief with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.

Mickey Mouse is depicted in the reverse design of 2023 Proof Colorized Solomon Islands Silver 100 Years of Wonder Mickey Mouse Coins. This colorized design captures an early rendition of Mickey’s appearance with black fur, a white face, white gloves, and red shorts. As one of the earlier designs, you’ll notice that Mickey’s eyes are expressionless as each is a simple black oval on his face.
