Starbucks City Mug Zagreb - Ban Jelačić Square

Zagreb is the capital and the largest city of the Republic of Croatia. It is located in the northwest of the country, along the Sava river, at the southern slopes of the Medvednica mountain. Zagreb lies at an elevation of approximately 122 m above sea level. The wider Zagreb metropolitan area includes the City of Zagreb and the separate Zagreb County bring the total metropolitan area population up to 1,2 million. It is the only metropolitan area in Croatia with a population of over one million. Its favourable geographic position in the southwestern part of the Pannonian Basin, which extends to the Alpine, Dinaric, Adriatic and Pannonic regions, provides an excellent connection for traffic between Central Europe and the Adriatic Sea. The transport connections, concentration of industry, scientific and research institutions and industrial tradition underlie its leading economic position in Croatia. Zagreb is the seat of the central government, administrative bodies and almost all government ministries.

Ban Jelačić Square is the central square of the city of Zagreb, Croatia, named after ban Josip Jelačić. The official name is Trg bana Jelačića. It is located below Zagreb's old city cores Gradec and Kaptol and directly south of the Dolac Market on the intersection of Ilica from the west, Radićeva Street from the northwest, the small streets Splavnica and Harmica from the north, Bakačeva Street from the northeast, Jurišićeva Street from the east, Praška Street from the southeast and Gajeva Street from the southwest.

Is this Zagreb mug really a limited edition?

argicgr   03 May 2012

It is one prototype sold for 1500 EURO

Renee   03 May 2012

Actually there are two, but the original owner kept one for his own collection. Btw, I did not win the purchase :)

shugal   04 May 2012

Does anyone know the copyright year on the bottom of the mug, or if it has a blank bottom? Thank you very much!

klausimaus   06 May 2012

I think mug is wrong

argicgr   06 May 2012

It is indeed Klaus!!!! But there is NO Croatia entry in Countries List. It will be fixed......

klausimaus   06 May 2012

who is Abdul Zamani

klausimaus   06 May 2012

Country: BulgariaEdition: Limited Editionis wrong !!!!!!

shugal   06 May 2012

Changed to 08 Icon Edition, notified admins to add Croatia as a country.

Sorin   06 May 2012

Since there is no Starbucks store in Croatia or this mug being sold in any other stores, I think we should not include this mug as a regular Icon Release.

klausimaus   08 May 2012

Sorin,I think you're right

shugal   08 May 2012

I disagree, this mug clearly belongs to the Icon mug series. Otherwise other prototypes would need to be placed out of their respective series as well, which in my opinion would confuse collectors.

Wumme0815   08 May 2012

Why not have a seperare series for prototypes? I think the prototypes can't be part of any series, as they haven't been produced in any series. There are only a few Mugs on the market, no series production at all.

tonymara   09 May 2012

yes, we wil have a prototype series and a flag for discontinued mugs soon.

argicgr   25 Aug 2012

Helmut is it posible to add these two categories (prototypes-rejected and discontinued)? Several mugs are waiting to be listed ;)

boizerking   29 Aug 2012

There is a Zagreb mug on ebay right now. Is it possible that the mug is original Starbucks?

Wumme0815   29 Aug 2012

Possible for sure, at least the pictures do look original. Strange is the location, the factory is not in the Phillipines. But maybe the seller is working for SB Asia and located in the Phillipines...who knows. But already crazy 315 USD...and I guess it will be much higher in the end...and that there will be pictures here afterwards!

Wumme0815   29 Aug 2012

Just guess you buy it for such money, and a few month later SB opens a store in Zagreb for real...

mugmania   29 Aug 2012

It's the same EBay seller that just sold the Auckland mug.

dvast8ya   30 Aug 2012

I'm thinking the one who knows the max bid on Auckland would be the seller...

mugmania   30 Aug 2012

I'm just wondering if someone is selling off their private collection of the rare mugs.

mobydick74   31 Aug 2012

I hardly can admit it is Icon08.... the store is not yet openI would add it to Icons when Starbucks will decide officially to enter Croatia.So far - not there....There are many more mugs never released from places there is no Starbucks now...

argicgr   02 Sep 2012

I can assure you that the specific mug on the listing is not a prototype. A starbucks prototype is an one piece item and has written notes and sticker on the bottom that make it different from regular mugs. At the moment, at least 4 identical mugs like this are in hands of several collectors. So, the best category for this mug is 08 Icon Edition.

shugal   05 Sep 2012

Zagreb sold for 875 USD. Hopefully more will appear. Copyright year in the pictures is 2010.

jockel   11 Sep 2012

Again on BUY IT NOW US$739.00

argicgr   11 Sep 2012

US$719 now and going down!!!!!!grab it NOW

Wumme0815   12 Sep 2012

And this one is claimed to be "Made in 2012", the last one was "Made in 2010", so seems there were at least 2 production dates, which means it can't be prototype. My guess: these people are selling them off quickly as they have some insider information that there will be more Mugs available soon, means that SB will finally open in Zagreb.

boizerking   12 Sep 2012

@Wumme0815: my guess (and hope) exactly!

argicgr   12 Sep 2012

Baybeluga seller had made a mistake in listing claiming that Zagreb is in Greece. He corrected yesterday after i informed him (you can see he revised description and price). He obviously copied one of his previous listings and pasted pic of zagreb mug. So, I think this is the case in the specific Zagreb mug. I personally think that about 10-20 mugs have been leaked from china warehouse and are in hands of various "collectors" who try to get a deal selling them.

Ming   25 Sep 2012

Is it worth the buy?

Last week "Ghost" Zagreb mug was offerred on Dutch auction site - as it seems this seller was able to get hold of 3 Zagreb mugs. I know the buyers of at least two of these mugs (I cannot and willnot reveal their names due to privacy), the third mug I cannot account for. Unfortunally I was not able to acquire my own mug. "You can't always get what you want"

Still wondering where these mugs came from and what the source is. Is Croatia / Zagreb getting a SBX store in the end?

Happy collecting

peter   02 May 2015

Well i dont think there will be a store in Zagreb, because the mugs are made in 2010.
I was able to get one, and afcourse i asked how they get that mug, but their story was not very clear.
Still wondering where all those mugs come from.
Anybody knows ?
