2018 Disney Scrooge McDuck 1oz Silver Bullion Coin
Part of the New Zealand Mint's Disney Coins collection for the Pacific nation of Niue, thver Scrooge McDuck is a must for fans of the lovable rogue and his famous nephew, Donald. And, of course, the coin is a great choice for investors thanks to its .999 pure silver content.
Injecting a little fun into the heady world of precious metals, thes silver coins celebrate one of Disney's most quirky characters – Scrooge McDuck. The reverse design is true to the original character created by Carl Barks and refined by Don Rosa. Scrooge is depicted with his favourite thing – a large sack of bullion. Uncle to the more famous Donald, Scrooge soon attracted his own adoring fans. And no wonder: his cute Scottish accent, his rakish Pekin duck looks, his sartorial elegance and his fortune; what's not to love about Scrooge McDuck?
Now immortalised in fine silver, Scrooge McDuck is a worthy addition to any coin collection. Did you know that as well as being an oil tycoon, businessman and the richest duck in the duck universe, Scrooge also owns the largest mines? Although it's not known if his silver is of the same exceptional quality as that used to strike the New Zealand Mint's 2018 1oz Scrooge McDuck coin, we are certain that he would approve of the bullion coin that now bears his name.
Like all coinage created by the Mint for the island of Niue, the obverse of each 2018 1oz Scrooge McDuck carries the Sir Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
