U.S. Mint $1 Coin Pilot Begins at Walt Disney World

posted on October 19th, 2009 by Thomas Smith, Social Media Director, Disney Parks


Beginning today, you may notice more unique $1 coins at Walt Disney World Resort.

We’ve worked with the U.S. Mint to participate in a circulation pilot of the 2009 Native American dollar coins. The coin’s design is based on the theme of agriculture. You’ll notice a Native American woman planting seeds in a field and the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and $1 on the reverse side.

New U.S. $1 Coins

Our participation in the circulation pilot is part of a continued commitment to environmentality. The coin is an environmentally responsible choice – it’s recyclable and lasts decades longer than paper bills.

Only certain locations at Epcot and Magic Kingdom Park will be offering the coins through Dec. 13, 2009. Here they are:

  • Liberty Inn
