"Sixty Years With You "
Commemorative Proof Silver Coin
Limited Edition Issued in 1988
This 'Proof ' edition Rarities Mint, Inc. coin is from my personal collection and I am offering it for the first time as I continue to sell my personal collection.
This coin was sold as part of the celebration to honor Mickey almost twenty years ago. It was the first coin minted to recognize Mickey on the occasion of his 60th birthday. It is extremely rare and prized among collectors as one of the earliest Disney pure silver collector coins. Most later Disney coins were issued by the Liberty Mint, however this one was issued by Rarities Mint, Inc. The entire package is stunning. Check out the pictures with this listing and read the features below.......
The coin has an issue date AND a serial number. The certificate is one of the most unique and complete certificates I've ever seen for a Disney coin. The front of the coin is a raised etching of Mickey as "Steamboat Willie". The reverse side of the coin contains the official "Mickey, Sixty Years With You" logo. It is brand new and totally uncirculated. It has never been out of the designer case except for the pictures accompanying this listing. The coin is in a protective plastic shield. It has never been touched by human hands. The entire setting is displayed in a beautiful royal blue crushed velvet book style binder. The coin is displayed in such a fashion that all you have to do is turn the page to see the reverse side. It does not require removal of the coin. The binder is absolutely gorgeous! Even the edge of the binder says, "Mickey,Sixty Years With You". All the binder lettering is in embossed gold and it is perfect! The binder is stored in the official "Mickey, 60 Years With You" box that accompanies it. The binder and the box look brand new. T is not a scratch or mark on either. T is also a wonderful brochure included with the coin with informative articles on Walt Disney, Mickey, Steamboat Willie, and a special look at " The Little Hero " from1928-1988. It is a Proof Edition. The silver in the coin is .999 pure and it is one troy ounce. This is NOT your average collector's coin! Issued almost twenty years ago, it is truly a very rare and unique piece honoring Disney's greatest animated ambassador. And what better way to honor him than with a coin celebrating his very first "sound" role...."Steamboat Willie". Given its age and limited edition, this coin is extremely rare. As one of the first of it's kind, it is even rarer. Add the mint mark and you have the makings of a truly wonderful collectible to add to your Disney memorabilia. It is almost twenty years old and still looks as beautiful as the day it was purchased. And the manner in which it's displayed is unlike any of the more modern coins. It is truly a fabulous and unique piece of Disney history. If you collect quality silver coins or "Mickey" items, you won't find a classier one than this.
For the past twenty five years, my Disney collection has been my passion. Each and every piece I've owned has been carefully displayed and protected when not in use. You have my personal guarantee, this item has been properly cared for and will be packaged carefully and arrive at your door just as it appears
