Every year, we’re treated to special collector’s item coins or medallions from The Singapore Mint—I distinctly remember receiving them as birthday gifts from my grandpa on certain years. Seeing how I was born in the year of the Rat, I guess next year marks the second full cycle of the Chinese Zodiac for me.
This coming 2020, The Singapore Mint has joined forces with none other than the famous rat—or mouse, should I say—Disney‘s Mickey Mouse and his loving partner, Minnie Mouse. The Disney Lunar New Year Festive Medallion Collection is currently available for purchase, and sales will run until the 9 February 2020.
Each gold-plated Zodiac Medallion (S$20) features Mickey endearing paired with a Chinese Zodiac character as well as auspicious Mandarin sayings and well-wishes, tailor-made to each character. It is available in 12 designs, one for each Zodiac character. If you’re looking to get a 12-in-1 set of all of them together, it’s yours at a discounted price of S$225.
Aside from the individual medallions, the collection also boasts two very special 20gm 999 Fine Silver Proof-Like Medallions (S$80 each) in both the Mickey and Minnie designs. Get them in a pair (S$150) to complete your medallion mouse couple collection, and show them off during next year’s Lunar New Year festivities.
Other items in this collection also include a 2-piece Mickey and Minnie Mouse Magnet Coaster Set (S$5)—perfectly handy when hosting your new year get-togethers. Alternatively, receive this for free when you purchase the aforementioned Silver Medallions, 2-in-1 Silver Set, or 12-in-1 Gold Plated Set!
