This year we were thrilled to attend the D23 EXPO in Anaheim, California and to showcase our Disney, Disney•Pixar and Star Wars collectible coins. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting all the fans and celebrating all the magic and excitement of the past, present and future of Disney. Here's a snapshot of the activity at our booth.

NZ Mint at D23 Expo

While we were there, we ran a prize draw for three lucky winners to win a 1oz silver coin of their choice. Each winner has now been notified and chosen their coin, and we thought you might be interested to know which coin they chose and why:

Star Wars R2D2 Silver Coin

Winner 1: Shane Matthews, Oregon
Shane chose the R2-D2 1oz Silver Coin. On making his choice he said "Honestly, I was overwhelmed by the amount of choices you offer! I love Star Wars, and am having a son in a few weeks, since there is some Star Wars decor in the room, I decided it would be a nice hand me down for him to cherish."

Disney Princess Belle Silver Coin

Winner 2: Ariana Callahan, Texas
Ariana chose the Disney Princess Belle 1oz Silver Coin. Asked why she chose that coin she replied "She's my childhood favorite. She's fiercely loyal, intelligent and a reader. Her love of books is my absolute favorite thing about her."

Disney Alice in Wonderland 65th Anniversary Silver Coin

Winner 3: Christian Tello-Spahr, Florida
Christian chose the Alice in Wonderland 65th Anniversary 1oz Silver Coin. He commented "We just love Alice and probably would have purchased it at D23 if we'd seen it there."

We hope all three winners love their very special coins.
