Disney Silver Coins

Has there ever been an entertainment entity that has had a greater influence on popular culture than Disney? Whether it be movies, television programming and, of course, theme parks Disney has provided countless hours of family entertainment that touches the very soul of millions of people. But what is it that makes Disney so powerful and so able to touch the souls of people? It is a combination of endearing characters, themes and moments that are the primary reason behind the popularity of Disney. After all, is not Mickey Mouse one of the most well known and popular iconic animated figures in history? As such, should come as no surprise that these many iconic figures have been captured on a number of silver coins that have long since been popular in collector’s circles. After all, who would not want to own a rare and unique silver coin featuring those heartwarming moments from SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARVES or WINNIE THE POOH? Apparently many people enjoy owning them as their popularity has skyrocketed in recent years.

Disney silver coins first made their appearance in the early 1980’s with the release of “Disney Around the World” and ultimately 7 sets were released. It was somewhat surprising that Disney waited so long to produce silver coins considering that Disney merchandise was so popular for many decades prior to the 1980’s. Regardless of the amount of time it took for these silver coins to debut the fact remains that when they arrived even the most critical eye had to marvel at the craftsmanship and beauty of the coins. This is why they proved immediately popular on their initial release and remain very popular with collectors to this very day.

Keep in mind, when the word “silver” is used it is not used with exaggeration. That is to say, the coins in Disney Silver Coin commemorative sets are 99.9% silver. They are not diluted or tainted by any foreign elements. When you purchase such a set you are truly getting a silver coin set. This is why it is critical to take care of the sets as best as possible.

It is important to note that no matter which commemorative Disney silver coin set you purchase that they are kept in their glass casing. There are a number of reasons for this and they all center on keeping the commemorative coins safe. After all, you do not want to lose any coins in the set or find them smudged. To make sure that this does not occur always follow the simple advice of leaving them in their case and avoiding handling the coins as much as possible. Also, be sure to keep a copy of the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) in the casing as it verifies the legitimacy of the coin set and maintains the value of it.

Of course, monetary value has its limits but the sentimental value of Disney silver coin sets is literally priceless. After all, Disney has a track record for uplifting spirits and emotions. Why would their coin sets be any different?
