Pressed Penny News:

 

3/5/15 The day is getting closser and closer! We hear that Disneyland's 60th Celebration will have a soft open on May 11, 2015 with the official open on May 20, 2015. Lots of visitors have been looking for news about the 60th pressed penny set. All we have is rumors so far. But, looks like there will be dozens of coins placed inside the parks and in Downtown Disney. As soon as we have something "official" (other than just Parkpennies. :-), we will be posting here. Do let us know what you've seen / heard too... Happy collecting, Boomer.

TDS1504 Tokyo Disneyland pressed penny3/2/15 New Pressed Pennies! Kuniaki Hiraki reports new Coins of the Month have arrived at Tokyo Disneyland. Kuniaki writes... Hello; 2015 MARCH monthly medals were released on NAR. 01,2015. TDL1530  TDL Penny Arcade   ------------- Mickey. TDL1531  TDL Tomorrowland Terrace --- Minnie. TDS1504  TDS Galleria Disney  ------------ Candu. Thank you, Kuniaki Hiraki  in Tokyo Japan. Visit his web site and see these new coins at Kuniaki Hiraki's excellent web site.

2/25/15 New Pressed Pennies! What a great day to visit the park! Sunny and mid 70's! But, that's not what made it great. There is a NEW 2015 dated pressed nickel at the The Cove Mini Market at the Tropicana Inn on Harbor Boulevard. We've updated the DW pressed coin guide with a picture of the coin, machine, and marquee. The Penny Machine Locations page will be updated today also. AND we've added scans of the latest Hong Kong Disneyland Tsum Tsum pressed penny set to the 2015 Hong Kong Disneyland Pressed Penny Guide. Happy Collecting! Boomer.

2/24/15 Terror strikes ParkPennies.com! We got the email... As you may know, the very powerful folks at Google have strongly encouraged web sites to become more "mobile device friendly" or be ranked in the Google search accordingly. YIKES! Many people visit ParkPennies for leading edge information. But, as you can see, technologically we're way over our heads already. Some might say that the movie is great, but, the VCR is still blinking 12:00. :-) So, we are doing what we can to learn what "Viewport", "Minify", "render-blocking" etc. mean? And we're especially trying to figure out how to get image content we often can't fit in a screen 800 pixels wide, to fit in a screen for use by small mobile devices with a screen only 320 pixels wide!? Maybe it's time to just take a break, visit the park, and press some pennies? :-)

Of course, we'll be keeping the "Full Web Site" full as always. But, we'll be making some "back stage" changes and adding "mobile friendly pages" over time. If you're using an iPad, ChromeBook, Galaxy, or iPhone... e.g. most "mobile devices", they should, as always, work fine with the current full ParkPennies site. So, if your mobile device winds up on a mobile page, and you long for the good ol' days and big ol' pages, :-) you'll always have an option button near the top of the page to "Open the Full Site".

Let us know... Needless to say, your suggestions guide this web site. So, if, when you spot a bug on one of the 800+ pages we'll be "improving" please let us know so we can "unimprove" it. :-)   Keeping the web site useful and easy to find takes help from lots of people. Our thanks go to all visitors and fellow collectors especially if you've had a chance to click the FaceBook like button or add a link to ParkPennies in a blog, forum, or web site. Those web links not only help share the hobby but will greatly help collectors find ParkPennies in future Google listings. Happy collecting, Boomer and the folks at ParkPennies.

2/19/15 Good news from Jim M. He reports that the Castle Gate Gift Shop's penny press machine has returned. A quick check with a person familiar with the location, tells us the machine has not changed coin dies recently. However, its sister penny press machine located in The Cove Mini Market at the Tropicana Hotel, just walking distance north of the Castle Gate Gift Shop on Harbor Boulevard, may have a new coin die in the near future. We've updated the ParkPennies Penny Machine Locations page. Happy Collecting, Boomer.

2/19/15 Our thanks to all fellow avid Disney elongated coin collectors that have contributed reports and finds to this web site over the years. We often give them credit when the news is posted. But, we'd also like to thank Alex D., for his repeated and outstanding help in editing this website. (Not that we ever make any airores. :-)

2/17/15 Just a note to let you know... we're still here! :-) Could be a lull before the storm? LOTS of rumors about 60th Diamond Celebration pressed coins. If the rumors are true, avid Disney pressed coin collectors will be very busy this year. We'll post updates as they become official / confirmed. For now, Boomer is saving all the quarters and copper pennies he can find. Happy collecting, the folks at ParkPennies.

12/08/14 New Pressed Pennies! Our thanks to Jamie B. who just reported that the Disneyland Seasonal Nickels are onstage!

12/06/14 As long time readers and FaceBook friends know, we rarely post unless there is worthy news... But, given the number of visitors that have emailed us asking about the anticipated 2014 Seasonal Nickels, we thought a "no news" post was worthy. :-) As soon as we hear of a new penny press, we will post here and on facebook. (If you "Like" the Facebook page, you can receive our most significant posts automatically.) Needless to say, Boomer is pacing back and forth and other fellow ParkPennies readers are reporting results of their nickel searches at the park. Hopefully one of us will spot a new Seasonal Nickel machine soon. Happy collecting, Boomer.

As long time readers will remember, Robert and Anastasia (Boomer and the ParkPennies Staff :-) have been members of TEC for many, many years as have many ParkPennies readers.

09/21/14 Many have asked and we are definitely looking and listening... But, we have no reports of any currently onstage HMH or NBC pressed coin machine.

7/01/14 Not much going on at Disneyland, USA lately. Could it be the lull before the storm? A couple of machines are offstage, their last known locations are being watched to see if they return with new coins, and it is the first of the month Tokyo Disneyland should have some new coins... Meanwhile, Boomer spruced up a few pages here. Not that they needed it. :-) There are a few more links and better graphics on the Pressed Penny Collections Diagram page, and a couple of older pages have minor updates. The web site design is still locked in the 90's :-), but, pages like the Duffy The Disney Bear page and the "Where are the retired machines" had new content waiting that we wanted to share. New reports, coins, and events keep the pages changing here. So, while we're waiting for a report of new Coins of the Month from Japan or a new machine in Anaheim, why not make yourself at home and take a look around? :-) Happy Collecting, Boomer and the folks at ParkPennies.

6/24/14 We are often asked who has elongated 2x2's, 20 pocket pages, or clinch staplers for sale. Here is a link to a web site run by a fellow TEC member we've known for years: Oded's Elongated Coin Supplies. His web site is also mentioned on www.PressedPennies.com, our elongated coin resources and supplies web site.
Do you want to share a favorite supplier of elongated coin related services or products with fellow collectors? That's what www.PressedPennies.com is all about. Not all links can be accepted, but, it's free and easy to submit your link at www.PressedPennies.com. (A free service for a few select suppliers / companies we feel would be of interest to fellow elongated coin collectors.) Happy collecting, Boomer.

5/15/14 We've added a few more Disney Themed Wooden Nickels and Disney Themed Tokens. Our thanks to C. Neal and other ParkPennies.com visitors for their additions to these new and developing guides. Happy Collecting!

5/12/14 You many have noticed our link at the top of this page? So, you wonder "What's going on with Boomer? Has he been capitulated into the 21st Century?!" "Has he finally stopped pressing pennies long enough to take a web programing course?". :-) Rest assured, ParkPennies.com is still firmly planted in technological nostalgia. As you can see on most every ParkPennies page, no matter how hard we try, there is little chance that ParkPennies will ever be transported even into the technological present. :-)
So why the Twitter account? Well... it was apparently opened by ethically challenged individual(s) attempting to use our trademark name. (As they have used common miss-spelling of our web site domain names over the years.) However, ultimately, the good folks at Twitter welcomed us to their community by transferring ownership of the ParkPennies Twitter account to us. So, to us it's a most welcome, even if unintentional, gift from some bad guy(s). And we're going to make the most of it. :-)
As you may know, many ParkPennies.com visitors are active on Twitter... But, it's new to Boomer. So, please bare with us while we embrace this great, new way to share the hobby. With your help, we hope to make ParkPennies Twitter a useful complement to ParkPennies FaceBook and ParkPennies.com. Happy collecting, Boomer and the folks at ParkPennies.

Penny Press Sign NEW 2014 pressed nickel set!
New 2014 Pressed Nickel Set at Disneyland!

5/08/14 New Pressed Pennies! New 2014 pressed nickel set onstage at Disneyland USA! This pressed nickel coin set replaces the 2013 pressed penny set. As nickels they are offered at 80 cents each, including the nickel that is pressed. The machine is located in Disneyland Park, USA, on Main Street USA at the exit to the Main Street Opera (Lincoln Exhibit). Images and details have been added to the ParkPennies.com Disneyland Pressed Penny Guides. Happy collecting! Boomer and the folks at ParkPennies.

5/02/14 New Pressed Pennies! Kuniaki Hiraki wrote with news that the Tokyo Disneyland May Coins of the Month are onstage.
Kuniaki writes: Hello; 2014 May monthly medals were released, TDL1449 TDL Penny Arcade ------------- Huey,Dewey and Louie, TDL1450 TDL Tomorrowland Terrace --- Mickey, TDS1428 TDS Galleria Disney ------------ Minnie. Thank you, Kuniaki Hiraki in Tokyo Japan.

As long time readers know, the Coin of the Month pressed penny series is one of my favorites. I've often wondered why Disney Resorts in the USA haven't picked up on this popular collectible series. It's no secret that many USA Disney collectors have. ;-) Happy collecting, Boomer.

4/27/14 Mark D. reported that the Small World Toy Shop quarter press has been offstage for sometime now. We've updated the Disneyland Resort and area penny press machine locations page. But, it's still hard to tell if the machine is retired or just offstage for (more) maintenance. I'll post here as soon as we have conformation. Looks like great weather this week, good time to visit Downtown Disney or one of the parks! Happy collecting, Boomer.

4/22/14 New Pressed Pennies! Just reported by fellow collector Mike R.: New Adventureland Disneyland® Park backstamps have been placed on the DL0368, DL0369, and DL0370 Simba, Goofy, and Pumbaa pressed penny set creating the DL0574, DL0575, and DL0576. Details and images have been added to the ParkPennies Disneyland Pressed Penny Guide. The ParkPennies single page listing of all Disneyland Resort and area penny press machines has also been updated. Enjoy! Happy collecting, Boomer.

4/19/14 Three more WDI pressed penny themed pins were released. Details and pictures of the new pins alongside the pressed pennies that inspired them all in the comprehensive ParkPennies.com WDI Pressed Penny Pins guide. We also added a "1981" wooden nickel to the new and growing Disneyland Wooden Nickel Guide. Thank you for your FaceBook likes... and Happy collecting, Boomer.

4/18/14 [Major correction to our earlier post. Boomer needs a nap! :-) ] Our thanks to Wan Lin Yeo in Hong Kong for reporting coins currently onstage at HKDL. Wan Lin also writes: "It will also be helpful to mention that all HKDL coin machines accept Octopus Card (a stored value smartcard for electronic payment, mainly used for public transport system in HK). HKDL shops may not have so many HK$5 coins to change (each coin costs HK$15 & only HK$5 coins can be used). There are 13 machines in total. Imagine how much HK$5 coins one will need to change to collect all the HKDL coins! Some machines have problems accepting older HK$5 coins which are a bit dented at the corners. So pressed pennies collectors are advised to top up their Octopus Card before they go into HKDL! :D" See all Hong Kong Disneyland Pressed Penny News.

4/09/14 A fun feature buried in the "Pressed Penny Guides, News, & Articles" menu above, is the ParkPennies image search. It will open a page with 100's of ParkPennies images. Just click an image of interest and it gives you the option to open the page. If you'd like to explore... give it a try. :-) Happy collecting, Boomer.

4/03/14 New Pressed Pennies! Backstamps for the penny press machine located inside the Disneyland Hotel Fantasia Gift Shop! Mickey, Mad Donald, and Goofy all have new Disneyland Hotel backstamps. We've updated the Disneyland Resort Hotels Pressed Penny Guide, and the ParkPennies Penny Press Machine Locations page. All "DR" Disneyland Resort Guide elongated coins are located outside the gates of Disneyland, you do not need to pay admission to press these coins! Plus Downtown Disney has lots of fun stuff to do, even live music some nights. Happy collecting, Boomer and the Folks at ParkPennies.com.

4/02/14 New Pressed Pennies! Kuniaki Hiraki wrote with news of 25, yes twenty five, new pressed penny medals at Tokyo Disneyland! For this update, please go directly to the Tokyo Disneyland Pressed Penny New Page.

3/20/14 Word's out that a new "Pressed Penny" pin set was released by Walt Disney Imaginearing! (Sold via Mickey's of Glendale Cast Member Store, not open to the public.) We hope to add images of this Buzz Lightyear themed three pin set along side the real pressed pennies that inspired the pins, to the ParkPennies.com WDI Pressed Penny Pins guide soon. Of interest, no classic, early issue pressed pennies e.g. the Mickey Rays pressed pennies, have been represented in the WDI collection yet. To date all pins have been styled after pressed pennies issued in recent years at The Disneyland Resort. Happy collecting!

3/18/14 Pressing Matters: Zinc NICKELS!? Long time readers know that we've been posting news about possible changes in US coinage (if not the elimination of US coinage) for sometime. At first it seemed like the ParkPennies folks were "speculating". Okay, I know, some people were saying we were just plain crazy. %-) But, Congressional Bills and press releases from the US Mint have continued. Recently, the Wall Street Journal talked about the US Mint pressing copper plated zinc five cent pieces for evaluation. Yes, like the current issue US copper plated "zincer" cents... but nickels, er ah... I must mean five cent pieces! Fortune Magazine also ran an article recently about what they called "Brown Nickels", copper plated zinc "nickels" that are under discussion at the US Mint. These sample articles also reiterate the possible elimination of pennies, nickels... Already, most Disney "penny presses" around the world press planchets and three Disneyland Anaheim penny presses were converted to press tokens for a time last year... Could be the future is here already? If you'd like to read the WSJ or Fortune articles, we have permanent links to them at the bottom of our Future of US Coinage Penny Page. Boomer is saving nickels now. Maybe it's because he is a bit "silly" or maybe it's just because he's old enough to remember when dimes, quarters, and fifty cent pieces were made of real, solid silver and when pennies were made of solid copper. Our thanks to the good folks at www.CoinUpdate.com for alerting us to these articles. Happy collecting, Boomer and the folks at ParkPennies.

3/13/14 New Pressed Pennies! Backstamps were placed on the DL0371, DL0372, and DL0373 FrontierLand set. The original pressed pennies with these new "FrontierLand" backstamps become the DL0571, DL0572, and DL0573. The ParkPennies.com Guide to Disneyland Pressed Coins and the ParkPennies Penny Press Machine Locations page have been updated. Happy collecting, Boomer.

They are: Walt and Mickey "Storytellers", Oswald, and Carthay Circle Theater (ParkPennies elongated coin numbers CA0162, CA0163, and CA0164). We've added them with matching pressed penny images to the WDI Pressed Penny Pins Guide. Happy Collecting!

1/22/14 No new machines to report today. But, some machines are offstage. As long time collectors know, often machines that are offstage return with a new set of elongated coins or with new backstamps. You can see our most recent listing of "missing" or "offstage" machines by checking the ParkPennies Penny Press Locations page (PDF) or the ParkPennies Penny Machine Locations (web page). We often update these pages with new machines / locations first so you can view them via your smart phone or other web enabled device while you are at Disneyland, traveling to the Disneyland Resort, or just before you leave the park for home. Before I sign off for today... Thank you very much for your FaceBook Likes (Over 500 already!). Also our thanks for sharing links to ParkPennies.com on your blog and forums. They make our day every time we see one! Happy collecting, Boomer and the folks at ParkPennies.

1/13/14 The Seasonal nickel sets were reported offstage today. We don't have the exact day / time yet. Our guides will be updated to show the nickel sets as retired. No Haunted Mansion or Nightmare Before Christmas quarters have been seen since 2012 and 2011. We will of course post any news that these very popular pressed quarter sets are back onstage here. (Recently, this post was inadvertently and temporarily moved below the 1/04/14 post in error. Our thanks to Tina for letting us know.)
