The $1 featured  “Waving Mickey” on the front and the “Disney Castle” on the back, and the $5 featured “Proud Goofy” on the front and the “Mark Twain” on the back. In 1990 the $10 denomination was released, and in 2005 the $50 was released for just that year’s release. The last new design was released in 2014.
