Rarities Mint

Rarities Mint was a mint that operated out of Anaheim, California from 1983 through 1995. While it is best known for being the manufacturer of rounds for the Disney company as well as Warner Bros., its origins predate that. The company evolved out of a boiler room operation that was involved in Precious Metal futures. It was only in 1987 that it signed its contract with the Disney Company to mint silver and gold rounds featuring the likeness of the Disney line up of characters.

The company was known for creating an inflated market in the release of the coin sets in the Disney series such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The required minimum purchase was often overwhelming to the dealers. In its later years, the company had difficulty as a result of the Disney series and in 1995 the owner Ian Simpson dissolved the company.

From 1983 to 1987, prior to its association with Disney, the company produced a variety of rounds and bars for the commercial market. Among the rounds produced were coin replicas, Liberty rounds, space themed rounds, and commemorative centennial rounds. The rounds were minted with .999 Fine Silver in a variety of finishes.
