Disney’s The Muppets Coin Collection Launches Today!

We are excited to announce the launch of a brand-new Disney’s The Muppets Coin Collection. This limited-edition collection will capture the joyful essence of the Muppets and begins with the happy-go-lucky Muppets leader himself, Kermit the Frog!

Kermit the Frog is Jim Henson's most well-known creation and was introduced in the TV show Sam and Friends in 1955, a five-minute late-night puppet show. The show featured some early incarnations of his famous Muppet characters, including the lovable frog named Kermit that Jim fashioned from one of his mother’s old coats and two ping-pong balls!

Jim coined the term “Muppet” to describe his unique combination of marionette and foam-rubber hand puppets—and they immediately proved popular, starring in television commercials and regularly appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show. Then, in 1969, came the immensely successful Sesame Street, making Kermit a bona fide star. But it wasn’t until The Muppet Show debuted in 1976, with Kermit is constantly trying to keep the craziness under control, that he and the Muppets became a favourite of fans of all ages.

Henson performed Kermit until his untimely death in 1990. Although Kermit is undoubtedly the world’s most famous amphibian, he doesn’t let his international success go to his head. Under his iconic green exterior, Kermit is still a lovable frog from a small-town swamp who got lucky and made it big in showbiz. Officially licensed by Disney, we think our Kermit the Frog coin is muppetational magic! If you are a Muppets fan make sure you don’t miss out on this first coin in the collection, or you may be feeling a little green too!
