1996 HHN Medallion question

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, this is my first post.  I was googling HHN medallions and found this forum.  Could anyone tell me what the 1996 HHN cloisonné medallion typically sells for?  I couldn't find any on ebay or in archived listings for ebay.

I've seen them on eBay between $120-$150 at times over the years.

I own a complete medallion collection.

 

The medallions started in 1996.  I think mz_ is thinking about the 1997 cloisonne, which featured Eyegore (the little imp that gnaws on the eyelid).

That 1997 medallion is quite common and they have sold for as low as $35.  There are a couple of never-ending ads for those on Ebay that ask upwards of $100.  Which is why they never end.

 

The 1996 medallion is uber-rare, and one of the larger ones.  I'm talking maybe a dozen were ever made.  I had no idea they even had a 1996 medallion until I was speaking with another collector a long time who wanted one of my rare media gifts.  I ended up buying that 1996 cloisonne to complete my collection, but I paid a steep premium for it.  It is the crown jewel of my collection.

 

If you find one and you are a serious collector, don't let it get away.

Thank you. Well, that explains why I never see any for sale.  I knew they were hard to find but I had no idea there were so few of them. A dozen, that is crazy rare!

That is what I was told.  In my 14 years of collecting I have seen exactly one come up, and I bought it.
