Ty Beanie Babies
Official Club Collector's Coins
one Collector’s Coin was included in the
Platinum Beanie Babies Official Club Membership
kit that was introduced in 1999. The coins
measure 39mm in diameter and may be silver,
gold or a combination of silver and gold.
When the Platinum Kits first appeared at
retail in May of 1999, there were only nine
silver coins to collect, one for each of
the Original Nine Beanies. The Original
9 Beanies are Chocolate, Cubbie, Flash,
Legs, Patti, Pinchers, Splash, Spot and
Squealer. In September of 1999, collectors
in the U.S. and Canada discovered five additional
Clubby, Peanut, Millennium, Mooch and Quackers!
In November of 1999, gold or gold/silver
versions of Spot, Squealer, Cubbie, Pinchers
and Splash were discovered. On the
gold/silver versions of the coin, the Beanie
and the Ty logo appear in silver while the
rest of the coin is gold.
On the front of the coin
is the Ty heart logo surrounded by the words
“Beanie Babies Official Club.” On
the back of the coin, the image of the Beanie
Baby is engraved surrounded by the words
“Beanie Babies Original 9” or "Beanie
Babies Official Club." The coins
are also engraved with the year, “1999,”
on the back. How rare is each coin?
Only Ty Warner knows for sure. But
since they are dated with the year, 1999,
these coins had a limited production!
