The First Disneyland Seasonal Nickels, Nov. 1995

Okay, what can be better? Disneyland, New Years, The Holiday Season, and pressed NICKELS all together!? Disneyland had pressed penny machine onstage since 1987, but, in 1995, they introduced the first pressed nickel machine at any Disney park in history. It offered a Top Hat Mickey, a Minnie in high heels carrying her purse, plus a super neat 40th Anniversary "40 years of Adventure" pressed nickel. That would have made the year newsworthy by itself. After all, it had been eight years since the first penny press was introduced at the park and new coin designs were not common. Only about fifty different elongated coins had been issued in all that time, no nickels at all! But, toward the end of 1995, The Disneyland Seasonal Nickels were placed onstage for the first time and a tradition was begun that is still a fun part of the Disneyland experience in 2009, 14 years later. See every single Disneyland Seasonal Nickel ever issued at the park, including a few that were never offered to guests... in the ParkPennies.com Seasonal Pressed Nickels Guide.

At the time, we didn't know that this set would be the start of a long running, extremely popular elongated coin collection. Possibly the best elongated coin collection within all Disney pressed coins!

See also Disneyland Pressed Penny Backstamps, Disneyland Canceled Coins and Disneyland Elongated Coin Test Rolls for additional details about coins in this "DL" Guide. For an easy visual of how the guide sections make one complete Disneyland Elongated Coin Collection, ParkPennies.com also offers a graphical overview of the Complete Disneyland Resorts Guide to Pressed Pennies and Elongated Coins.

Editor's note: We are often reminded that the preferred numismatic term is "Elongated Coins", however, some rebellious ParkPennies.com contributors are known to use more casual, fun terms like: pressed pennies, pressed nickels, pressed dimes, pressed quarters, smashed pennies, flattened pennies, crushed pennies, squashed pennies, rolled pennies, mashed pennies, stamped pennies, smushed pennies, stretched pennies, memory pennies, keepsake pennies, flattened pennies, and souvenir coin medallions to describe these fun pressed coin souvenirs. :-) Happy Collecting, Boomer.

Picture of Disneyland Pressed penny or pennies, elongated coinsTop Hat Mickey elongated nickel attribution of the DL0058, DL0058a onstage coins vs. the DN0019 prototype can be difficult at first. (As if finding examples of each isn't?) This guide entry offers some of the notes and references I hope will be of use to fellow collectors. As shown by the images, the DL0058 is the original state of the die, the DL0058a is the same die with a modified coin grip, and the DN0019 is the original prototype, a die that was cut "penny-sized". Many DL0058's were pressed at the park, few DL0058a's and the only DN0019 known to us were test rolls, very scarce. As in most guide descriptions, click on the images to see larger scans or detail pages. Images can be held in most browsers via opening new "tabs" or using the ParkPennies.com "Frames" option at the top right corner of this page.

DL0058 Retired Top Hat Mickey Pressed Nickel or elongated coin image. Mickey Mouse in tux with top hat and cane, full length, facing right, © DISNEY, "e" for Eurolink Design Corporation replaces the dot nearest the center of the gripper slot, DISNEYLAND Full size image, dot border. Similar artwork to the very scarce DN0019 smaller image "Penny Art" version and the hard to find enlarged coin grip DL0058a. First on-stage March 1995. The die returned from seasonal rotation as the larger grip DL0058a on February 12, 2004. Located at The Main Street Penny Arcade, button "A". Exchanged annually during Holiday Season with "Seasonal Nickels". Larger pressed penny image in frame or window # 1   2   3

DL0058a Retired Top Hat Mickey Pressed Nickel DL0058a Retired Top Hat Mickey Pressed Nickel is from the same die as the DL0058, except it is a coin pressed after the modification of the coin grip which was made larger and higher / deeper than the DL0058's. First on-stage February 12, 2004. Removed from stage February 16, 2004. Located at The Main Street Penny Arcade, button "A". The DL0058a, DL0060a, and DL0225 were onstage for only a few days, during which, the machine was pressing "short" and stickered out of order most of the time. The machine had been off stage for maintenance in 2004 and when it returned, the few collectors that noted its return believed that the coins were still unchanged since their debut in 1995. Only after the machine was taken off stage for the last time, a few days later, were the coin changes noted. Therefore, the DL0058a, DL0060a, and DL0225 are unusually scarce for onstage coins.

Detail comparison
of the nickel-sized (full-sized) DL0058 / DL0058A elongated nickel vs. the scarce DN0019 prototype pressed nickel with a smaller or "Penny Art" sized image. The easiest way to identify these coins is by the larger margins on a nicely pressed small image DN0019. Wide margins are only apparent on a DL0058 if it is "pressed long".

Conversations over the years 1999 to 2005 with the manager and also a long time Cast Member associated with the kraft that was in charge the penny presses at the time, confirmed to Robert Hoff, of www.ParkPennies.com, that the dies were originally ordered and intended to press "nickel-sized" coins. However, possibly because these were the first nickel-sized dies ever ordered by Disney, they were engraved "penny-size" in error. When coins were pressed, their images were found to be too small. The dies were replaced before the machine was placed onstage.

See also the very scarce "Penny Art" DN0020. First on-stage March 1995. Retired in November 1995. Replaced by DL0076. Located at The Main Street Penny Arcade, button "B". So we walked up to the machine with my daughter of 10, and she says "Let's press more than two?!" and I say "What could we do with more than two?". So, now I remember that day with my twenty-something daughter and I know that one day, today will also be many years in the past... So, we often press pennies at the park, together. What a great hobby.:-) Larger pressed penny image in frame or window # 1 2 3

As with the DL0058 guide entry, this guide entry offers some of the notes and references I hope will be of use to fellow collectors that want to confirm a find. As shown by the images, the DL0060 is the original state of the die, the DL0060a is the same die with a modified coin grip, and the DN0021 is the original prototype, a die that was cut "penny-sized".

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, pressed nickels, pressed dimes, pressed quarters, smashed pennies, flattened pennies, crushed pennies, squashed pennies, rolled pennies, mashed pennies, stamped pennies, smushed pennies, stretched pennies, memory pennies, keepsake pennies, flattened pennies, and souvenir coin medallions to describe these fun pressed coin souvenirs. :-)
