*** VILLAINS and HEROES ***
What a fantastic SURPRISE....................
I opened my browser at the start of January and discovered that Disney has produced a brand new set of four $1 bills.
This year the theme is to celebrate all those "Villains and Heroes" from Disney films throughout the years.
They were officially released on 1st January 2013 at both parks. I have no offical news on the size of the print run, but with a short serial number of 6 digits, I would imagine another limited print run of 100,000 for each of the 4 styles and for each of the parks. (800,000 in total)
As with 2007, this appears to be a $1 only series, with no corresponding $5 or $10 bills. (Yet!!!)
Disney has also returned to the tradition of the serial number prefixed with A for Disneyland, CA and D for Walt Disney World, FL.
The 4 designs are as follows:-
Reverse: Peter Pan and Wendy (Peter Pan - 1953)
Obverse: Ursula (Sea Witch)
Reverse: Princess Ariel and Eric (The Little Mermaid - 1989)
Obverse: Maleficent (Dragon form)
Reverse: Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip (Sleeping Beauty - 1959)
Obverse: Cruella De Vil
Reverse: Pongo, Perdita & Patch (101 Dalmatians - 1961)
