Pinched Pennies Staring
Scrooge McDuck, The World Famous Penny Pincher!

Pinched pennies can make for a fun collection. True, the proper term for these fun keepsakes is "Elongated Coins" and many people do call them "pressed pennies". But, Scrooge McDuck elongated coins? Well, it just seems right to call them pinch pennies. :-) As you may know, and according to Wikipedia, Mr. Carl Barks worked for the Disney Studio and Western Publishing where he created Duckburg and many of its inhabitants. (Scrooge McDuck became a resident of Duckburg back in 1947.) Of interest, cartoonist Will Eisner once called Mr. Barks "the Hans Christian Andersen of comic books". Needless to say, Mr. Barks was very accomplished, has given us many Disney characters, and has many fans around the world. Yours truly included. After all, without his imagination, not even this Scrooge "pinch penny" collection would exist.

Mr. Barks lovable Pinch Penny Scrooge character, to many of us, has earned the title of Disney's King of Pinching Pennies. Scrooge's reputation has in turn inspired many pinched pennies, pinched nickels, pinched dimes, and pinched quarters issued at Disneyland USA, Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland DisneySea, and Comic-Con International to name a few locations. We've gathered a sample of some of these fun "Pinched Pennies" for you here. However, there are many more Scrooge themed elongated coins listed in the ParkPennies Guides, particularly in the Tokyo Disneyland Resort Guides.
