collectible of the day: MINI SMINT


MINI SMINT
Around the time of the MINI launch in the US, MINI USA partnered with SMINT to create a special edition package.  Many dealers included a box or two with the delivery of a new MINI.  Some continue to give them away today.

The MINI SMINT box has the MINI wordmark and logo on the front.  On the back is “GET FRESH. GO MOTOR.”  Each box contains 40 tiny, triangular mints dispensed one-at-a-time from the bottom.

The MINI SMINT is an official MINI item with a part number: 99 00 0 003 820.

The manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) from MINI is $1.89 per box.
