Vintage a&w Columbia

My mother entered my name into a raffle when I was 1 year old at a grocery store. The prize was a brand new Columbia A&W root beer Columbia bike. It is a 1984 with all markings rarely ridden and in near new condition. Original everything the tires even hold air. They wouldn't let me ride it as a kid and they let me have it when I was 21. I would like to know if I should have it covered by my insurance if it is at a high enough value. I can not find any info about them anywhere.

Thank you for your time,
Anax

Columbia was a low end discount store brand. Short of finding an A & W collector, the bike has minimal value.

Stores would typically get them free from their vendors, and then raffle them off.
