The George Meyer Retirement Party
Elongated Coin Treasures

From all reports we have received, fellow Disneyland Arcade Shop Cast Members gave Mr. Meyer one great retirement party. Given just the pictures above, I don't think I need to mention George received some really neat retirement gifts at the party. We have pictured only some of the elongated coin related items and we hope to add more as readers send in more pictures. As you can see in the picture above, there was a nickel press at the party making about the best event souvenirs any Arcade Shop Cast Member or Disneyland elongated coin collector could ask for. We are told that the nickel press was not noticed by most attendees until after a speech was made which mentioned the machine. After that, the machine got lot's of attention! Unfortunately, it jammed during the festivities and as a result the die was damaged. Luckily some coins were pressed in advance on another similar die, the DS0012. The combination of the two sources provided guests with some wonderful mementos of the day.

Each of the two dies made a distinctly different coin image. Listed as the DS0011-a and DS0012 below you can see why they are very much alike and very different at the same time. The die that was held inside the nickel press machine at the party, we believe pressed the small grip DS0011 coins pre-party and large grip DS0011a coins at the party. Each die pressed several types of coins. The framed collection above center, based on reports to ParkPennies.com, displays examples of an elongated penny, nickel, quarter, small (locker) token and large (one dollar Mickey) token. The top right picture features framed marquee artwork and a collection of gold plated coin variations below it... with a gold plated die bottom center! Very nice!

4/28/17 With great sadness today, I received a call from a long time friend and Cast Member, now retired. He shared with me that George Meyer known to Disneyland elongated coin collectors for his work in the Disneyland Arcade Shop, had passed away on April 22, 2017. As long time readers of ParkPennies will recall, George retired from Disneyland in 2007, his retirement included an elongated coin in his likeness and many kind words from fellow Cast Members. The kind words and positive stories of the years George spent with friends at the Disneyland Resort continue today and are a testament to how much he was liked and is missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones.

This page is still a draft. Please don't be shy about contacting us with any pictures or information you'd like to have included. As you can see, friends of George have sent in a few pictures already, however, we can never have too many! (We are particularly looking for a small penny press picture.)
