Pressed Pennies Outside The Resorts


 The Haiti Relief nickel press machine while located at The Company D Cast Member Store. Pressed penny from the Disney Soda Fountain while it was open in Hollywood, CA.This Disney pressed penny reference guide features authorized and copyrighted off site Disney® elongated coins. Although these coins appear to be from a Disney "Park" or "Resort" they were not.

To qualify for listing in this guide, the coins must have been from Disney owned penny press machines located outside all Disneyland Resorts, outside any location that has its own elongated coin collecting guides such as The Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World etc. As an example, some coins listed here are from Disney Quest in Chicago or the Disney Soda Fountain in Hollywood California etc. (If these locations were inside a Disney Theme Park or on Disney Resort property, they would have been listed accordingly as are Downtown Disney pressed pennies.) Coin order is not chronological. Some of these coins are scarce or very difficult to obtain. Elongated coins believed to be off site and unauthorized are listed in the DW Disneyland Wannabe Guide.    

Happy Collecting,
Boomer

Disney VoluntEars Volunteer Haiti Relief Pressed Nickels

VoluntEars Fund to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief pressed coins
DO0011 Retired Fireman Mickey Mouse VoluntEars Haiti elongated nickel . DISNEYLAND, Fireman Mickey Mouse in fireman's protective suit, ax in hand, © DISNEY, no border. Replaced the CM0029, same obverse die with larger backstamp. First backstage 3/26/10 removed from last location around 5/7/10. Backstamp: Small Type II Mickey Mouse classic pose, Disney VoluntEars, DISNEY -small ABC logo- ESPN. Before this machine was moved to Company D on 4/9/10, it was available inside the Disneyland Resort, to Cast Members only. Therefore this set of coins was first listed in the Disneyland Cast Member and Special Events elongated coin guide as CM0032, CM0033, and CM0034. We do not think this three dimensional engraving was done by Eurolink or in house at the Disneyland Arcade Shop. This machine moved from location to location. Nickels baring this new, smaller backstamp were first located backstage near the Eat-Ticket Restaurant, Team Disney Anaheim, (Disneyland), on 3/26/10. On about 4/2/10 the machine was moved to a new backstage location, The DCA Cafe, in Disney's California Adventure. On about 4/9/10 the machine was found outside the park just inside the entrance to Company D, the Disneyland Cast Members' store. Cast Members and polite members of the general public were permitted to press coins at this location until around 5/7/10. The three die nickel press was placed by Disney VoluntEars Fund to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief, Haiti, just after the Haiti earthquake. Robert Hoff of ParkPennies.com was told by trusted sources that the cost of a pressed nickel in this set, at all locations, was a donation of 25 cents or more up to $1.25 plus the nickel to be pressed.

However, each coin has a slightly different reverse image as each coin has a separate and slightly unique backstamp engraving. Originally located backstage near the Eat-Ticket Restaurant Team Disney Anaheim, (Disneyland) on 3/26/10. This smaller Type II backstamp replaced the larger Type I CM0029-31 backstamp when the nickel press machine was moved from The Harbor Point Team Center to the Eat-Ticket Restaurant at TDA and the machine locations that followed.

Originally located backstage near the Team Center, Disneyland on 3/17/10.

Scrooge McDuck Elongated Coins
Distributed by Heritage Auction Galleries in 2010

Scrooge pinched penny!DO0014 Vertical pinched penny, elongated nickel, elongated dime, and elongated quarter. Scrooge McDuck, also known as Uncle Scrooge, with his cane and Bag 'o Money! Inscribed "CARL BARKS, © DISNEY" at the base of the image, classic dot or bead border, initials RWD replace the dot at the center of the coin grip for Raymond W. Dillard, the well known elongated coin collector, designer, and manufacturer. This Disney themed elongated coin is said to be the last done by the very well respected engraver, Bill Grencavich before his retirement. Originally pressed on U.S. copper cents for distribution and very limited four coin presentation sets pictured below (penny, nickel, dime, quarter). A later run of elongated coins reportedly included six each: Steel Cents, Indian Head Cents, Brass Slugs, Kennedy Half Dollars, Susan B. Anthony Dollars, Sacagawea Dollars, Canadian Cents, Buffalo Nickels, Silver Quarters, British Half Pennies, and Polish Coins.
Backstamp: "Ink" image of the original coin is visible on the reverse of the cents. A "ghost" of the original coins remain in relief on the reverses of the nickels, dimes, and quarters.
In a July 3rd 2010 conversation, Mr. Dillard mentioned to Robert Hoff of ParkPennies.com that he had recently pressed and shipped 1,000 cents per an order he had received from Heritage Auctions. Additionally, that six penny, nickel, dime, quarter sets packaged in plastic were sent to Heritage. All elongated coins were for use as promotional items by the auctioneer. (A trusted source later reported to ParkPennies.com that these coins were distributed at the Comic-Con International 2010 held July 20-24, 2010 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California.)
Collectors around the world recognize Heritage Auction Galleries as the world's largest auctioneer collectibles including Scrooge McDuck collectibles, comics, Disneyana, etc. The inclusion of a "© DISNEY" suggests placement in this guide section as Disney Off-Site coins e.g. elongated coins licensed by Disney, but, not issued by any Disney Resort. ParkPennies.com has contacted Heritage Auction Galleries for their conformations, corrections, contributions to the back story of this special elongated coin. To date, they have been very gracious, however, without significant comment on the subject.
Carl Barks elongated coins without "© DISNEY" have been issued by the Carl Barks Fan Club, CBFC. We hope to add a page dedicated to these coins in the near future. Image of a Carl Barks Fan Club Coin here.
Reports of this coin by both Nancy Wooten and Ray Dillard were first believed to be of two different coins. Therefore we give credit to both of these well known and respected elongated coin collectors for this find.

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. :-)
