The First WDW Pressed Pennies

Based on our research, the first two WDW pressed penny machines offered four coins each. One of the first WDW pressed penny machines offered Walt Disney World titled coins with images of: Mickey Mouse rays, Mickey Mouse standing, Minnie Mouse and Chip N Dale. (As pictured on the marquee above and similar* to the coins offered with chains.) The second WDW pressed penny machine featured Walt Disney World Typhoon Lagoon titled coins with images of: Shark Submarine, Ship Tillie on the mountain peak, Snorkeling Mickey Mouse, and Surfing Mickey Mouse on an inner tube. Subsequent machines offered a selection of only three coins until The Penny Men introduced their four play hand crank penny press machines at WDW.

These are the earliest WDW pressed penny die rolls known to ParkPennies. They were made for Marvin Huth circa 1991 by Frank Brazzell. We are aware that Walt Disney World has published dates of 1994 as well as 1995 as the first years pressed penny machines were placed at WDW. However, based on the records kept by the engraver of the dies, ParkPennies staff's recollection of our visit to WDW in 1995 and of our WDW elongated coin collection at that time, it is our opinion, that the first year pressed pennies were available at WDW could have been as late as early 1992. We would welcome any additional history / evidence that we could add to this article.

Walt Disney World pressed pennies or elongated coins as many purists call them, are great collectibles. On this page we have links to some WDW files and some great WDW web sites. (Of course, for Disneyland USA, Disneyland Tokyo, Disneyland Paris, and Disneyland Hong Kong, we hope you will visit our main pressed penny index page. :-)

Happy Collecting,
Boomer

*One of the several small differences between the vintage on-stage coins vs. the necklace / good luck chained elongated coins is that the necklace coins featured thicker coin grips compared to the on-stage coins which featured thin coin grips.)

Editor's note: We are often reminded that the preferred numismatic term is "Elongated Coins". However, as the rebellious, risk taking, devil may care ParkPennies.com contributors that we are, temptation often gets the better of us. As a result, you may see the more casual, fun terms like: pressed pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, smashed pennies, flattened pennies, crushed pennies, squashed pennies, rolled pennies, mashed pennies, smashed pennies, stamped pennies, smashed pennies , smushed pennies, stretched pennies, memory pennies, keepsake pennies, flat pennies, and souvenir medallions to describe these fun penny souvenirs.
