Keel laying is typically used to mark the official start of construction on a ship. Work has already begun on the Disney Treasure, but the laying still marks an important step in the process.

In this ceremony, a newly-minted coin is placed under a ship’s keel for good fortune. A new version of Captain Minnie, dubbed Voyager Minnie, is on the Treasure’s coin.

Captain Minnie is also on the keel coin for the Disney Wish.

Philip Gennotte, portfolio project management executive, Walt Disney Imagineering Germany, took part in the keel laying ceremony for the Disney Treasure at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. During the ceremony, a time-honored maritime tradition, a newly minted coin was placed under the keel of the ship for good fortune. The commemorative coin used in the ceremony featured an etching of Captain Minnie Mouse donning a new look that embodies the ship’s adventure motif. 

The coin features Captain Minnie’s new adventure-themed outfit that she will be wearing exclusively on the Disney Treasure, as pictured below.
