COKE & Statue of Liberty Birthday Celebration
Aluminum Bottle from Birthday Celebrations (limited production)
This Bottle was One of Only a few hundred available to Media and Guests at the statue of Liberty during the celebration of the Statue of Liberty and Coke Birthday Celebrations. The bottles were made for the May 2011 Coke 125th Birthday Celebration and were also used at the October 28th 125th Statue of Liberty Birthday celebration. Most of these bottles were opened and the contents drunk. This Bottle survived with contents intact.
When could you get this bottle:
In May for the Coke 125th Birthday the bottles were on each table for invited guests of the Coke 125th Anniversary Celebration. Most were enjoyed with Dinner. A few found their way to the non guests who were at the celebration working as staff and waiters, band members etc.
On October 28th, 2011 the remaining bottles (however many were left) were available during the Celebration of the 125th Anniversary of the Statue of Liberty's Birthday. These bottles were available to Invited Guests, Dignitaries, Media, and a few others. I was lucky enough to snag a few before they were all drunk up. Most of the empties were sent off to be crushed and recycled (check out the last pic for proof). So even less of the bottles (full or empty) are around - especially now that the celebrations are over and done with.
So, How rare is this bottle. I have 7 (plus one empty). How many more are out there... not sure. (One I am keeping) I am not sure of how many were made. But if Coke decides to make a limited run of bottles... say a few hundred for their own use... well a bottle maker would be nuts to say no. Right?
When Coke asks for something... you pretty much do it. So how many bottles were made ... only coke knows for sure.
How many survived the events... A lot less then they had to start.
So, they made them for the 125th Anniversary of Coke and the Statue of Liberty and to say the least it was very very very limited.
Most were enjoyed by guests and dignitaries who could care less about the rarity of the coke bottle they were drinking from. So, most of these were enjoyed at the Coke dinner or drunk by the press and special guests at the Statue of Liberty Birthday celebration. Have you ever seen the press at an event where there was free food or drinks...nuff said.
A few were probably taken home to friends and family. They are very very lucky people. And my guess is that any of those bottles (maybe another handful) will NOT be going on sale. So I have the few unopened bottles that will be on sale. I have 6 which I will part with and one I will keep. So you heard it here... 1 of 7 bottles known to survive the event. Check out the others that didn't survive in the last pic... BTW - I also have one empty bottle ... but a friend has dibs on it. Enjoy and happy offerding.
Why is this bottle different:
Look at the coke logo. Behind the coke logo is a darker black/red printed Coke and Liberty logo (as seen on the bottles bottom in white) in a repeated pattern. This does not go around the entire bottle but does start about mid "O" in Coca and ends about mid "A" in Cola. The pattern starts with a 125th Coke Candle Bottle and a Statue with Torch Lit logo and repeats in a diagonal pattern down the bottle and behind the white Coke lettering. The Bottle also says Since 1886 on it. The bottle is traditional coke Red with White lettering. The 125 years logo with the statue and coke candle bottle are on the lower part of the can with the white 8.5 Fl oz size. Red 100 calories per bottle in a white shield and nutrition facts panel to the lower right. THE BOTTLE IS UNOPENED AND MINT.
So, you say that you have the best coke bottle collection out there.
You have "every" coke bottle produced.
You can pull out a bottle from the 1800s and from the Royal wedding (worth about $300) You might have a few bottles from other celebrations and anniversaries or Even one of the 62 bottles from the A+ Theatre which never went out and were the only ones to survive being destroyed. Maybe you have a special Olympic coke bottle from Atlanta... since that is Coke's hometown and they do sponsor a lot of stuff... right?
My guess is that you don't have this one.
And you will probably never have another chance to own one of these bottles again. I only have a few and I mean very few.
So, I will start it at $125 and let you decide how rare this bottle is. Don't expect to get a second chance. I am keeping one for myself.
** Extra Bonus is a Statue of Liberty brochure with the 125th anniversary Stamp 1886-2011, the 200th Anniversary stamp (Ft. Wood 1811-2011) and the date stamp Oct 28th 2011 made at the Birthday Celebration.
I will also include a regular 125th anniversary Statue of Liberty Glass bottle (as seen on ) as an added bonus. So you get one regular 125th Bottle and one 125th Celebration ONLY Bottle.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPING STARTS AT $25. SORRY THAT IS THE PRICE. I DO NOT MAKE $$ ON SHIPPING. This is the price charged by the USPS for international mail and could take up to 4 weeks for delivery.
