The Disneyland Tower of Terror
Pressed Penny Error Set!

A quick look at the Disneyland Hollywood Tower of Terror Hotel pressed penny set might not warrant a second look. After all, the Hollywood Tower Hotel is in the Disneyland ® Resort. But, The Hollywood Tower Hotel, AKA, The Hollywood Tower of Terror is not in Disneyland, it’s in Disney’s California Adventure™! As they say, there you have it! The latest, coolest Disneyland error coin set yet!

Feverish work by Lou Smith and yours truly has brought ParkPennies.com readers these scans and descriptions in less than 24 hours. A previously unlisted set of Disneyland Hollywood Tower Hotel error coins were just disclosed via an eBay auction (Update: The sale of the three individual zinc cents that made up the rare error set,brought a total of more than $1,400.00.) (Another auction of these three coins, also good zinc rolls, closed on eBay 01/24/07 for a total of ~$1,475.00.)

As you can see, the newly disclosed error coins are much like the previously cataloged and well known Disney’s California Adventure Hollywood Tower Hotel set. However, the error set, says "Disneyland" rather than "Disney’s California Adventure". The error set coins are shown in holders. (Click on these catalog numbers to see higher resolution coin images above DN0031, DN0032, DN0033, CA0053 CA0054, CA0055) These error coins remind this collector of the DalmatiOns set, later replaced by the DalmatiAns set some years ago. Error coins are very prized additions to most any Disneyland collection today.

Over the past few months, a cache of probably a half-dozen sets of the Tower of Terror pressed penny error coins have been sold privately at historically low prices. Most were resold via eBay. All sales known to us were of zinc cents, save one copper set. Prices were depressed as surprised collectors shied away from the unexpected number of coins. As of this writing, it appears that the recently offered sets have been exhausted and found new, long term homes for the most part.

Editor’s note: Many advanced collectors know of what Disneyland calls "proof coins", coins that have been pressed and offered for sale as evidence of a retired die cancellation program or policy. However, a policy for rejected dies has not, to our knowledge, been demonstrated. Therefore, as of mid 2008, ParkPennies.com must assume these rejected dies are available for use. Needless to say, as more and more coins come to market, our assumption grows. If you have corrections or additions to make to this page, please contact us.
