Throughout History, Companies Competed to Produce the Most Impressive Stock and Bond Certificates, With Brilliant Colors, Intricate Designs, and Beautiful Vignettes. However, with the Rise of Online Brokerage Firms in the 1990s, the Need for Physical Certificates Quickly Disappeared. One by One, Companies Quietly Discontinued Issuance of Their Paper Stocks and Bonds. A Newsworthy Example was Walt Disney’s Decision in 2013 to Phase Out Their Colorful Stock Certificates Featuring Renditions of Their Beloved Animated Characters. This Demise of the Stock Certificate Ends a Tradition that Extends Back at Least 400 Years, When the Dutch East Indies Company Became the First Company to Issue Certificates. Today, the Beautiful Stock and Bond Certificates That Remain are Enduring Rare Relics from a Bygone Era in World Financial History.
