The Matternhorn Error Coin

Matterhorn!

Many ParkPennies readers have asked for more information about Disneyland "error coins". As long time collectors know, error coins are few and far between. That makes them all the more fun to collect and write about. They usually are worth more than non-error coins also.

The MatterNhorn coin was first at the park on a very crazy day for yours truly. (Do you sometimes think that the new penny presses wait until you are going to be gone for a couple of weeks before they make their appearances? I do! Pressed Penny Smiley ) So I stopped at Disneyland on the way to the airport just to check on new machines one more time before I left on Friday, July 2, 2004. Luck was with me. The DL0236 "MatterNhorn" coin was on-stage! I pressed a few and was at 30,000 feet before I even thought there might be an error in the spelling! You know, in some lands they do spell "Matternhorn" with two "n’s"... just not Disney - land. Pressed Penny Smiley

By the afternoon of Sunday, July 4, 2004 the coin was off-stage and retired. It was replaced by the DL0250 "Matterhorn" coin on Wednesday, July 28, 2004. (Click on the catalog numbers to see and compare images in the top frames or view a close up comparison of the Matternhorn and Matterhorn coins here )

Even given it’s short stay on-stage, several lucky ParkPennies.com readers read about this new machine in plenty of time to press a set or ask a friend to press one for them. At least one set of these coins was sold on eBay shortly after the set was taken off stage. The winning auction bid was about $25.00 for the set. Given the interest that followed the discovery, in my opinion, a set offered for sale today may very well bring a higher price if offered. As long time collectors will attest, best to "get while the gettin’ is good". Pressed Penny Smiley    You just never know how long a pressed penny will be available.
