Los Angeles: The iconic home of Mickey Mouse said yesterday it would no longer print and sell its beloved currency, the Disney dollar, sparking a buying frenzy among collectors.
The distinctive bills, each featuring iconic characters and signed by treasurer Scrooge McDuck, have been a legitimate form of money within the Disney universe since they were put into circulation in the 1980s.
Mickey was featured on the dollar bill while Goofy was on the $5 and Minnie Mouse was on the $10.
