First released in 1987, Disney dollars are some of the most highly-collected scrip ever produced.
Disney Dollars are the brainchild of Harry Brice, a silhouette cutter on Main Street in Disneyland, CA. In 1987 while visiting a Disneyana (Disney Collectors) Convention, Mr. Brice came up with the idea to make a souvenir item, which would be sold in the park that looked and acted like money.
Once designs were finalized, they were illustrated by the Creative Concept Star Tour Disney DollarService Illustrator Matt Mew. The printing was done by EPI of Battlecreek, Michigan, which were known for high quality printing using intaglio steel engraving. This printing process along with using special 100% cotton paper, gave the Disney Dollars the look and feel of real money.
Disney Dollars are similar in size, shape and design to the paper currency of the United States most bills bear the image of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Pluto or a drawing of one of the landmarks of the Disneyland Resort or the Walt Disney World Resort and are accepted at the company's theme parks, the Disney cruise ships, the Disney Store and at certain parts of Castaway Cay, Disney's private island in the Caribbean.
Early Disney Dollars are becoming very difficult to find, especially high-grade, unused examples. We are proud to offer the most highly sought-after Disney Dollars in a variety of certified grades.
