Disney Park Pack: Coin Edition is a new monthly Disney coin collection subscription box from the Disney Store. Every monthly coin will be inspired by a classic Disney Parks attraction with sculptured bas-relief art on both sides. Coins are encased in acrylic shell and come inside a flocked case. Each one is created exclusively for the Disney Park Pack and includes a Certificate of Verification.
The box comes in a slipcase.
It’s a Small World Coin! A Certificate of Verification is included, noting all the pertinent high-level details of the coin.
The finish on the coin this month is minted steel! The coin comes encased in an acrylic shell. You can open it if you’d like.
They Disneyland side shows the super happy stylized building facade. It’s A Small World opened there on May 28, 1966.
This has been my 6 year old’s favorite thing in the world since he first experienced it. I’m going to have to show him the original Disneyland version.
The success of this attraction and recognition of its high capacity played a GIANT role in the design of all future Disney attractions (and one that as a mom, I personally appreciate!). If you’ve ever been to a regular amusement park that doesn’t have continous on-off attractions, you’ll know what I’m talking about. Despite the length of Disney lines, they put through a ton of people through those rides!
Something I didn’t know? That there was a version of this ride at the 1964 New York World’s Fair!
The Disney World side shows the Hawaiian/Polynesian girl (I don’t mean to conflate the two, it’s just that they’re combined there), perhaps the most iconic face of the happiest cruise that ever sailed.
