The first Resort prototype coin, the TDRP01. This coin is way hard to find, but you can see it here at ParkPennies!.

Tokyo Disneyland Resort prototype and Cast Member only medals! Often the most sought after, scarce souvenirs of most any Disneyland pressed penny, elongated coin, or medal collection. How they relate to a compete collection of all Disneyland Parks elongated souvenirs is shown on the ParkPennies.com Disneyland Pressed Penny Collections page. A Tokyo Disneyland Medal Collection Outline is available as well as links to the TDL, TDR and TDS Tokyo Disneyland Guides above.

Although these Tokyo Disneyland Resort medal souvenirs are often referred to as "pressed pennies", "pressed nickels" and even "elongated coins" by some collectors, no coins were injured in their production. Tokyo Disneyland Resort Souvenir Medals are made by pressing vended planchets, flans, disks, blanks or slugs. The blank medal planchets, which are held inside the penny press, and then pressed to order for the collector.

The metal disks are about the size of a US nickel or Euro five-cent piece. In the park, to this date, only two kinds of blanks have been used. (Although non-native planchet examples are known and often prized by advanced collectors, they are not currently listed in the guides.) One standard type planchet or blank is made of solid, bare copper and the other standard type is also solid copper with a chrome or nickle plating. In Japan, some collectors call them by the names of "penny" and "nickel" because of their color, maybe also because of the nostalgia of pressed coins, but not because real coins were actually pressed.
