While the value of Disney commemoratives resides in their rare-metal content and the sentimental attachment of collectors, the Disney name and image is so pervasive that "anything with Disney is a collector's item," said Beth Deishler, editor of Coin World, a weekly newspaper in Sidney, Ohio. "Baby boomers are collectors, and they're the ones in love with Disney." Lois Fullmer, a buyer for Disney, said the medallions have been big sellers in Disney gift catalogues and at the company's parks in Anaheim and Florida.
