Ha.... there are.... but they are hard to get hold of because they are mystery coins. Look up Mickey Diver and there is one that has to do with a cross reference of mickey and star wars (I can't remember what it is called). Good luck.

Mickey Diver...there are a few different versions of this one. This is the version I have.

The problem to trying to purchase, or sell for that matter, a Disney related geocoin comes down to copyright infringement. It is a copyright violation to produce something for sale or promotion in the likeness of copyrighted materials without expressed permission. To get around that anyone who produced a Mickey Mouse like coin had to give them away or trade them under the radar.

if my memory is working correctly . . .

 

there was one a while back that was an official Disney item

purchased at a gift shop at one of the parks

 

the coin had a blank space on it

the owner bought a TB, and had the code engraved in that space

it still showed as a travel bug on the GC.com website

but it was a trackable Mickey Mouse geocoin, just the same

sorry, but I do not

I am working from memory, and it was several years ago

I believe that I saw it on these forums, so you might be able to locate it via some searches

 

but I think that it was a one-of-a-kind personal sort of thing

not something that was made in quantity and offered for sale

 

if you want something similar, I suspect that you will have to do the legwork yourself

1. acquire a MM coin

2. acquire a tracking code

3. go to a jeweler (or other such service provider), and have the code engraved on the coin

 

with this technique, at least you get to choose a MM coin design that you like

This may be the forum thread that he was talking about.

 

Disney trackable?

If you wish to make your own coin, please read the pinned threads at the top of this forum first. And make sure you have approximately $1000 in spare change.

If you mean you want to make just one individual coin, you can do that by purchasing a Travel Bug tag, and engraving the tracking number on the coin. It would still be considered a TB, because it would have the Travel Bug icon. You can keep the tag, and copy tag, in case it ever gets lost. But do not release more than item using the tracking number, this could get the TB locked for good.

You can also do a forum search on "signature items", which may or may not be trackable.
