Pressed Penny News:

 

09/27/14 Okay, maybe we're bragging just a bit. :-) ParkPennies was just awarded a TEC Presidential Merit Award! Our thanks to TEC for this honor. Also, our thanks to the many ParkPennies visitors who have contributed their reports and suggestions that are part of this fun web site.
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. It's a wonderful way to meet fellow collectors and keep up with the hobby. Members enjoy the TEC News, elongated coins, fun events and more. All for a very modest membership fee that makes possible the good work this well respected, non-profit volunteer powered organization has been doing since 1966. If you are not already a member, do checkout TEC, The Elongated Collectors.

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. As chronicled by the ParkPennies guide to all Haunted Mansion and Nightmare Before Christmas pressed coins, it has been a long time since the quarter press machine was last onstage. We haven't given up all hope; you know we'll be checking for the machine. However, if you spot it first, please contact Boomer.

9/18/14 Another Ewell Gunther PNC, this time a Mickey Mouse Nickel was just listed for auction on eBay. We don't see these often, thought we'd share the news.
Because ParkPennies.com is a non-commercial hobbyist site by and for elongated coin collectors, we do not accept paid ads. However, occasionally we spot or hear mention of a unique or hard to find item and share the news here. If you have a Disneyland elongated coin item up for auction, do link it to ParkPennies.com. ( It's free :-) Fellow ParkPennies visitors can view and bookmark the linked Disneyland pressed penny auctions here. Happy collecting, Boomer.

9/11/14 Just released! Three new Soarin' Over California WDI pressed Penny Pins! These pressed penny style pins are all limited editions of 250. A few pins in this growing collection are copies of elongated coins that were never onstage... But, were listed in our DN pressed penny guide. :-) Other pins in the collection might be cool editions to a specialized pressed penny collection... maybe a favorite character or attraction? Do check them out and Happy collecting, Boomer.

9/07/14 A Ewell Gunther PNC Mickey Mouse dime was just listed for auction on eBay. We don't see these often, thought we'd share the news.

Kuniaki Hiraki wrote with news... wait, new coins at Tokyo Disneyland it seems are more like an every day event than news! :-) Let's call it a new coin report? :-) Today.... Kuniaki reports that there 17 new coins onstage including three new Tokyo Disneyland Resort Coins of the Month. Kuniaki writes: Hello; 2014 July monthly medals were released.

Because of his love of the hobby, Kuniaki continually voluntears an amazing amount of time to update and maintain His Excellent TDR Medals web site in both Japanese and in English for use by his English speaking collector friends. Do check it out. You can also view coins currently onstage with traditional guide numbers on Kuniaki's Current medals list. For early, vintage issued coins from 1996-2011, prototypes, and variation comparisons, www.ParkPennies.com still maintains our Tokyo Disneyland Resort pressed penny guides. Happy Collecting, Boomer.

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.

The Disneyland pressed penny guide and the ParkPennies Penny Machine Locations page have been updated.

★ 6/14/14 *Ray Dillard's Auction by Stacks & Bowers ends JULY 1st, 2014!* There are 76 Lots covering a large range. Here's a link to the Stacks & Bowers June 2014 Auction Catalog. (Ray's coins start on page 243. The auction is via the internet; we can bid from home or office!.) Needless to say, many long time elongated coin collectors have considered Mr. Dillard The Top Collector of Elongated Coins for many years. So, you know there will be some real treasures up for auction! Happy Collecting, Boomer.

6/12/14 Our thanks to Wan Lin Yeo for sharing his pictures of the onstage 2014 Hong Kong Disneyland Pressed Pennies. 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.

Hello; TDR 30th Anniversary finished on  MAR 20, 2014. Anniversary medals were gone and new medals were released on MAR 21, 2014 18.

I expect that new medals will be released after APR 01 by new event metals. Thank you, Kuniaki Hiraki  in Tokyo Japan.

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.

The coins featuring their new backstamp, will be guide numbers DL0568, DL0569, and DL0570. At the same time this machine arrived, the neighboring machine, the 2013 dated Mickey, Minnie, and Donald penny press set, was taken offstage and assumed to have been retired.

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.)

Rumor has it that the old locations were impeding traffic. We'll update the world's most accurate :-) Penny Press Locations Page today.

11/15/13: Two recent reports from the park state that the Westward Ho Trading Post penny press machine is "offstage for servicing". However, the Tigger, Winnie The Pooh and Roo machine is onstage just outside the Winnie The Pooh Shop in Critter Country. Details and pictures have been added to the ParkPennies Disneyland Pressed Penny Guide, numbers DL0553-558 and the ParkPennies Penny Press Machine Locations page (PDF). Happy collecting, Boomer,

11/13/13 Six new WDI Pressed Penny Sets, one set of three WDI pressed penny pins with a Donald Duck theme and three with a Buena Vista Street Cars Theme. Happy collecting.

11/12/13 Are you checking this page hoping to find news that the 2013 Holiday Nickels have arrived? I am! :-) So, are the 2013 Holiday nickels here yet??? No. But, we've haven't heard any rumors that they won't arrive as "usual". According to the ParkPennies Holiday Pressed Nickels collection page, over the past 18 years, the "usual" arrival time has been from early November to early January, with most arrivals from mid-November to mid-December. So, chances are we'll see a new nickel press machine or two at the park(s) soon.
For timely penny press updates, be sure to bookmark this page and / or "Like" the ParkPennies FaceBook page... If you don't see an update, please keep in mind that we try (not always successfully :-) to keep our posts both welcome and informative. To that end, we keep posts to a minimum here and especially on our FaceBook Page. So, if a day or two or even four passes without a post, don't think we've forgotten. We're at the park checking for new machines often and we especially welcome your email reports and the opportunity to share them here. (With name credit for the first ParkPennies reader to report a new machine. :-) Happy Collecting!

10/27/13 The Grand Californian Hotel penny press machine, is currently located at White Water Snacks. White Water Snacks is located southwest of the swimming pool, past the for guests only :-( hotel entrance to DCA. No changes in the coins have been noted since the 10/18/13 news post. The ParkPennies.com Penny Press Locations (PDF) page has been updated. Happy collecting! Boomer.

10/21/13 Many of the recent changes in the ParkPennies web site were inspired by readers. Our thanks for your suggestions and feedback. Something you'd like added or changed to improve the site? We welcome your comments and suggestions.

10/18/13 We've started a Disneyland Wooden Nickel Guide. We already have one nickel listed! LOL! If you have a Disney wooden nickel not already listed, we would welcome your email of a high resolution scan of it with any history about the wooden nickel you have. You'll not only get to see your nickel in the ParkPennies guide, you'll see your name too, cuz we'll give you credit for your find, unless you want to be annoy-mouse. Happy collecting, Boomer.

GCH Lobby penny press machine 10-07-13

10/18/13 New Pressed Pennies! New Disneyland Hotel pressed penny set! The Goofy's Kitchen penny press machine has returned after a short absence with three new pressed penny dies! One pressed penny features Mickey, one Goofy, and one Stitch! As all other elongated coins in the Disneyland Resort Area Guide, this penny press machine can be accessed and used without the need to pay admission to either theme park. And the first three hours of parking is free at the DownTown Disney parking lot. We hope to update *updated 10/18/13* the Disneyland Resort Area guide soon with pictures and guide numbers. Happy Collecting! Boomer and the folks at ParkPennies.com.

10/09/13 New Pressed Pennies! New pressed penny set in the Grand Californian Hotel and Spa lobby! As regular readers will recall, The Acorn Gift Shop penny press machine went missing a while back and was later spotted in the Grizzly Arcade, an area reserved for the lucky folks with Grand Californian Hotel room keys... then it was gone again for a short time. Well, on October 7, 2013 it reappeared in front of the Acorn Gift Shop with a NEW set of three pressed pennies! (Our thanks to Mike R. for his report.) We updated the Disneyland Resort Hotels Pressed Penny Guide on 10/11.
Our thanks for your kind words of support, sympathy, and condolences while we've tried to spruce up this aging nostalgic old school style reference site. :-) Do let us know if when you spot any bugs; we'll do our best to hide them. :-) Happy Collecting, Boomer and the folks at ParkPennies.

Thank you, Kuniaki Hiraki in Tokyo Japan.

09/28/13 If you're following "End of the Penny" legislation, you may be interested in a new House Bill. HR3146 9/2013 (PDF) in Section 8 (page 12) suggests that the Secretary of the Treasury "Mint no coin that costs more to produce than the denomination of the coin." Aside from what some may see as an interesting concept, limiting the cost of fiat currency production to face value, :-) it is also evidence of continued efforts to end the production of both cents and nickels. If of interest, we have a small collection of links related to legislation to end the penny.

09/25/13 We've added more tokens to the new ParkPennies.com Disney Tokens Guide. This guide is new, and just a start at a guide to these fun, inexpensive collectibles. We hope, with the help of readers, this guide will grow over time. Please contact Boomer if / whenever you have additional token images or information to share with fellow collectors. Happy Collecting, Boomer and the folks at ParkPennies.

09/23/13 Before you panic... :-) Yes, we've spruced up a few pages at ParkPennies! But the good stuff is still here. Dozens of links that were listed down the left side of the page are in drop down menus under pictures of the link's related park coin. A long list of frequently visited pages is also available in a drop down menu near the left hand top of the page. And... the good old top links and Google search box are still at the very top of the page. We hope you'll like the changes.... But, as regular visitors are more than aware, The ParkPennies folks are much better at posting news than computer programming. So please send us your feedback about this test page. Let us know what you like and what you'd like to see added or changed. After all, ParkPennies.com is for you, our friends and fellow collectors. Happy Collecting, Boomer.

09/19/13 As of around 10:00 a.m. 9/18, the AMC Theater hand crank penny press was still jammed. However, when we left the park around 3:00 p.m. the machine was working great. Our thanks to Steve who reported that the Acorn Gift Shop penny press was moved to the Grizzly Arcade. The new location is accessible only by hotel guest key. The machine's coins have not changed since the machine was moved to the new location. (We have updated the pressed penny guide page with an image of the penny press machine at the new location.) UPDATE: The machines have been working great lately.

09/15/13 Afternoon Our thanks to Ricky K. for reporting that the Disney AMC Theater machine is still out of order. This machine appears to be serviced by an outside company. We hope to report it is working soon. If you have an update to share, please contact Boomer.

09/14/13 New Pressed Pennies! Our thanks to a long time ParkPennies.com contributor, Lou S., for reporting the arrival of the two rumored DownTown Disney hand crank machines. The machines are four die outdoor stand-alone design. (Be ready to do some cranking!) One is located near the Anaheim DownTown Disney AMC Theater and the other near Vinylmation across from the Tortilla Jo's restaurant. As of late Saturday, the machine in front of the Disney AMC Theater was not working. It accepted quarters but rejected the accompanying cent. :-( We hope to report the machine up and running soon. We'll update the ParkPennies.com Pressed Penny guides as soon as we have scans of all eight coins. Happy collecting, Boomer and the folks at ParkPennies.

09/14/13 ParkPennies.com readers have emailed us looking for the 30th Anniversary VoluntEars pressed penny set. Currently all three coins are separately listed on eBay by a well known seller. Here is are links to view the VoluntEars auctions and other auctions by fellow ParkPennies readers.

08/26/13 As per the Disneyland Pressed Penny Guides, the returning Starcade token press machines now press cents. Please note that although the Wreck It Ralph and Tron machines have pressed cents before, the Space Mountain 35th Anniversary coin press machine is now pressing cents for the first time. -No obverse or reverse coin design changes were made, only changes in the type of coin / token that is accepted by the machine and pressed. Our thanks to the well known Disney elongated coin collector, Mark B. for suggesting we post a note about the change here on the news page.

08/26/13 Our thanks to Oded Paz and The Elongated Collectors Organization for the honor of awarding us the 2013 TEC Presidential Merit Award for "Maintaining the web site ParkPennies.com providing a great service to collectors of Disney ec's". We have been proud members of TEC since the 1990's and thank TEC for many good friends and fun memories over the years. ParkPennies has a link for information about joining TEC, the popular TEC Newsletter and more. Happy collecting, Boomer.

8/22/13 Our thanks to Rich C. for sharing news with us that the Starcade "token" presses have returned, now pressing pennies. (UPDATE 8/26/13: Please note this is the first time the Space Mountain 35th Anniversary set has been been offered on pressed cents as detailed in the Disneyland Pressed Penny Guide.) Many collectors liked the pressed tokens. I wish Disneyland could have kept them, maybe with new dies and larger images. Hopefully collectors that wanted these first of a kind souvenirs pressed them already. The ParkPennies Pressed Penny Machine Location Page and our guides have been updated. Happy collecting, Boomer.

08/21/13 An earlier post mentioned new WDI Pressed Penny Pins were reported at the D23 Convention... Well you know Boomer couldn't wait to acquire the new pins and update the Pressed Penny Pin Page for you. Yes, ParkPennies.com has a Pin Page! What is this world coming to? :-) No, seriously we haven't lost our focus, most of these neat pins were modeled after really cool Disneyland elongated coins. So we know many fellow advanced pressed penny collectors will want to collect them. Of course, a comprehensive guide is important to building a complete collection. We hope you'll find the ParkPennies Reference Listing of all Pressed Penny Pins a useful and welcome addition to our pressed penny guides.
Most importantly, our thanks to you for "Like-ing" our ParkPennies FaceBook page! We've nearly reached the 500 "Likes" mark! Your visits and sharing our humble site with your friends via links and posts has made it all happen. Thank you very much for your support and Happy Collecting, Boomer.

08/18/13 New Pressed Pennies! Jimmy in Hong Kong again has news of two more new penny press machines at the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort! Tokyo and Hong Kong have been really busy. Our thanks to Jimmy for marquee pictures of the penny press marquees, which have been added to our latest Hong Kong Disneyland Pressed Penny Guide page.

08/15/13 New Pressed Pennies! Our thanks to Thelma C., a 2005 Collector of the Month Honoree, for reporting six new Hong Kong Disneyland pressed pennies today. One set celebrates the 8th Anniversary of the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. If you'd like to see all the "pressed pennies" issued by the HKDL Resort, here is a link to the ParkPennies Hong Kong Disneyland Guides.

08/15/13 UPDATED Our thanks to eBay store owner, uavpilot1, for kindly confirming that some WDI Pressed Penny Pins were offered at the D23 Show, the WDI Wreck It Ralph Set of Six, WDI Splash Mountain Set of Three and the WDI Pirates of the Caribbean Set of Three. We look forward to adding these new sets along with the earlier Mickey, Donald, and Goofy set to the ParkPennies WDI Pressed Penny Page as images become available. Happy Collecting, Boomer.

08/11/13 New Pressed Pennies! Fellow collector, Jimmy in Hong Kong, reports six new Hong Kong Disneyland pressed pennies! The coins will have guide numbers HKDL1307-1312. Our thanks to Jimmy for the marquee pictures. Happy collecting, Boomer.

08/10/13 A new WDI Wreck It Ralph themed set of six "Pressed Penny Pins" was just released! We'll be adding them to the WDI Pressed Penny Page as soon as we have a set in hand for scanning.

08/07/13 D23 Pressed Pennies? Sorry, not this year. But, needless to say, many Disneyland Cast Members are fellow pressed penny fans too. Over the years we have seen them make great efforts to support this wonderful hobby. So, do let them know we appreciate their efforts and hope they'll have a D23 coin press at the next D23 event. I know, we just did, but... :-) Happy collecting, Boomer.

08/02/13 Many readers have asked the status of the three token presses at the Starcade. As long time readers will recall, three penny press machines were converted to pressing quarter-sized arcade tokens and placed at the Starcade in Tomorrowland on February 2, 2013. (News post below) They were exceptionally popular. However, on about July 16, 2013, they were taken offstage. We noted the machines on The ParkPennies Pressed Penny Machine Location Page as "Missing". Since then, there has been speculation that the machines might return with new larger image dies or that the machines have been retired after having a very busy last few months pressing 75 cent tokens for happy collectors. So far, we only have rumors, but, will post updates, as they become available, here. When you have news to share, please contact Boomer. 08/02/13 New Pressed Pennies!

08/01/13 Could be of interest if you own penny presses or collect pressed pennies? ;-) ... The good folks at Coin Update have a bit more information about the:
"H.R. 1719 Cents and Sensibility Act [Coin Update coverage] The bill seeks to immediately alter the composition of the cent, nickel, dime, and quarter to American steel. In the last Congress, separate bills had been introduced seeking to change the composition of only the cent and nickel to steel".
