From 2002 through 2004 MINI USA sold collectible snowglobes as part of their MotoringGear collection. They were limited editions and there was a different one each year.
Shown is the MINI Snowglobe 2003. It features a Silver MINI.
Once these snowglobes sold out, they could often be found for sale on MINI forums or eBay for upwards of $100 or more.
