This is the special edition of the 2023 Moomin Day mug, "Sea Breeze Platinum," which will be available only through a lottery. The Sea Breeze Platinum mug is a numbered special edition of the Sea Breeze mug, distinguished by its platinum details and a different gift box. Each Sea Breeze Platinum mug is numbered, and only 5000 mugs will be available. This mug should not be washed in a dishwasher due to its platinum details. The lottery will take place from June 7th to June 13th, 2023. 1. Go to Moominarabia.com 2. A pre-authorization will be made on your credit card (the price of the mug, €99.90). 3. The winners, who will receive the right to purchase the mug, will be drawn before 4 PM (EEST) on June 13th. 4. Participants will be notified of the results via email. Credit card pre-authorizations will be canceled or confirmed. 5.The winners of the lottery will receive their mugs. This is a lottery for the right to purchase the mug. Similar methods have been used in the past, for example, with the popular Playstation 5 gaming console. The lottery system allows everyone an equal chance to acquire the rare Sea Breeze Platinum special edition mug. It is likely that not all interested individuals will obtain the mug, and its price is expected to significantly increase in the aftermarket over the years. For previously released Moomin mugs, only the Fazer (400 pieces) and Moomintroll Daydreaming (2005 pieces) mugs have had their exact production numbers announced. It is anticipated that the Sea Breeze Platinum mug will become a new sought-after treasure for many Moomin collectors. --- In 2023, the Sea Breeze mug takes us to the archipelago to celebrate Moomin Day and Arabia's 150th anniversary. To mark this double celebration, two mugs will be available: the rare Sea Breeze Platinum and the Sea Breeze Moomin Day mug. The mug's archipelago-themed illustration is based on Tove Jansson's novel "Moominpappa and the Sea." Among the familiar characters from Moominvalley, you'll find Moomintroll, Little My, Moominmamma, and Moominpappa. The illustration for this mug was composed by recently retired designer Tove Slotte. Sea Breeze is her 100th Moomin mug illustration. The foundation of the Sea Breeze mug's illustration is made from old letter papers that Tove Jansson used when responding to fans. The 2023 Moomin Day mug special edition "Sea Breeze Platinum" is sold in a beautiful gift box.
