They’re the most-wanted mini in Australia, with Stikeez fans around the country desperate to get their hands on the Golden Billy Banana.
With only 100 released by Coles in Australia, there’s a huge demand for the golden collectable - so much so, that three eBay auctions of the rare Billy Bananas have sold for more than $85,000 in recent weeks, with one alone going for $50,000.
Last week it was rumoured that there are still around 25 of the rare minis in circulation around Australia. But now one Stikeez collector has revealed the one store where you’re more likely to get a Golden Billy Banana than any other around the country.
During a recent Facebook discussion on the Coles Little Shop - Minis Swap Group Australia page, one member revealed that she indeed had a Golden Billy Banana mini and that she knew of TWO of the rare minis to come from the same store.
The Facebook chat started after one follower asked whether any of the group’s members actually owned one of the rare minis.
Member Sarah posted a photo of her Golden Billy Banana and replied: ‘Yes I have one.’
She went on to explain that she received the mini from the Coles in Sunbury, Victoria - and said she knew of others to come out of the one store.
This Golden Billy Banana sold for over $20k ...
... While another sold for a whopping $50k just a few days ago.
Given that it’s improbable that more than one Stikeez could randomly show up in the one store, it’s lead some to believe that a cluster of Golden Billy Bananas could’ve shipped to the Sunbury Coles.
So if you live close by, it just might be worth paying this particular Coles a visit. It just might be your lucky day!
