Scrooge McDuck, having just bought a very valuable coin (the 1803 Half-Drubnik), is visited by his old crush from the South, the eccentric spendthrift Miss Belle Duck. Unfortunately for Scrooge, behind his back, Belle takes his nephews on an outing and gives what she thinks is only "an old coin" as a tip to a newspaper boy. When Scrooge returned, he finds his nephews "kidnapped" and the precious Half-Drubnik "stolen". Unbeknownst to Belle, Huey, Dewey and Louie, Duckburg is put on high alert and the entire navy sails after them…
