Snow White 50th Anniversary - Theme Park Cups

During the 1987 Snow White 50th Anniversary celebration at Disneyland, special commemorative paper cups were used when guests purchased soft drinks. The anniversary logo with Snow and the dwarfs is pictured on one side. She wears a red dress (patterned after the pink dress illustrations used at the time in the movie posters and publicity material). Coca-Cola's sponsorship is noted on the opposite side.

In a variation of the cup, the Coke logo is dropped and the characters are placed opposite the anniversary text. Snow's dress has also turned purple.

The same design was seen on styrofoam coffee cups too.

Special thanks to the Kevin Hicks Collection for sharing these images.

Kirk "Magic of Disney" Silver Coins

The Magic of Disney is a 1973 collection of twelve 2.3 oz. sterling silver coins issued by Kirk. High relief detail. Included in this limited edition set is a Dopey piece.

On the back is a short character bio.

Stamped along the side edge is the Kirk production year. They began issuing these rounds in 1973, yet later mintings were completed in 1974. Thus the coins will have either "73" or "74" mark. Also included is the Kirk serial number and the individual coin number within the edition.

The other characters in the collection are Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Pluto, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Dumbo, Pinocchio, Bambi, and Peter Pan.

Original case.

The coins are listed in the Indexed Guide to Silver Art Bars, p.134.
