Pressed Penny Collecting Musings...

Hopefully, this collection of quips, mostly edited from past articles, will offer a tip or bit of trivia of interest to you.:-)

The fun "pressed penny" collections above illustrate some the ways people all over the world enjoy the wonderful, fast growing hobby of collecting Disney pressed pennies. We are happy to welcome you to ParkPennies.com and hope you'll find our guides and news pages of value in obtaining your personal pressed penny collecting goals too.

The elongated coin collection index above will help you explore the ParkPennies resources. Sample Disneyland pressed penny / elongated coin images above are links to a variety of ways to collect Disneyland elongated coins. All are linked to "Disneyland" elongated coin collections, e. g. Disneyland Anaheim pressed penny collections, Disneyland Tokyo "pressed penny" collections, Disneyland Hong Kong "pressed penny" collections, and Disneyland Resort Paris pressed penny collections. Some open links to separate collections, sub-collections, or collector guides. To view a collection, just click on the coin. There are Disneyland penny press collections for most any budget... small, large, easy and complicated sets. Choose the size and type of collection you’d like to build. Each and every one can be a lot of fun to collect.

"The complete collection of all known Disneyland coins" is represented by all the links above and contains many hundreds of coins. However, most people do not collect all the known coins, at least at first. :-) There are several fun and easy sub-sets to make starting a collection easy. For instance, the Disney pressed dimes set currently contains a total of only six coins, with a total value of only a few dollars. And, at the time of this writing, you can collect three of the dimes in the collection from one on-stage machine for less than $2.50... if you press them while they are still available. Of course, to press most Disneyland elongated coins you must also pay admission. But, not when you collect the coins listed in the DR Disneyland Hotels and Downtown Disney guide. Those coins are from locations near free parking and are accessible without paying any admissions! Yes, collecting Disneyland pressed coins can be a wonderful hobby for most any age or budget. :-) The key is not to delay starting your collection. Once the coins are retired, they can get to be costly. Coins that are retired or were never onstage, can have values of over a thousand dollars each. But, most Disneyland pressed pennies are only 51 cents while they are still onstage.

When the folks at ParkPennies started collecting Disneyland "pressed coins" in the late 1980’s, there was only one "Disneyland" Park and it offered only a few penny press machines. In 1996, the second Disneyland Resort, Tokyo Disneyland, introduced elongated pressed medal souvenirs and we began the TDL Tokyo Disneyland Resort Medals Guides which are now a well-traveled part of this site. Then, in 2005, we welcomed a third Disneyland Resort when Hong Kong Disneyland opened and we began The Hong Kong Magical Coins Guide. Most recently, in 2006, we added The Disneyland Resort Paris Guide. But, wait! There's more :-)... We are currently waiting for the open of yet another Disney Resort in Shanghai!

Where are the Walt Disney World pressed pennies? As many readers will remember, in 1992, Walt Disney World became the second Disney park to have penny machines placed onstage. Their first penny machine, a four play or four coin electric penny press machine at Walt Disney World, was a big hit and many, many more penny presses followed. (WDW has said 1994 was the year of their first penny press. But, opinions can differ.) But, WDW's Magic Kingdom is not WDW's Disneyland and therefore not in our Disneyland guides. That was a lucky break for us as we are barely able to keep up as it is and there have been a LOT of elongated coins issued by the Magic Kingdom and the WDW Resort! We however still do offer links to WDW penny collecting resources as well as links to sites that specialize on WDW pressed coins on our WDW pressed pennies page.

To further explore the art of digression... :-) New Disney Resorts or "Gates" like Disney California Adventure can provide an excellent opportunity for collectors. Of course, the earlier a collection is started, the easier it is to "get caught up" and keep a collection current. The coins can also often be pressed, purchased, or traded for based on a cost that might not ever be seen again, like 51 cents each! It's usually also a great time to build a trading partnership with fellow collectors that may want to trade coins from their local park for coins near yours. Matter of fact, as you read our posts on the various park news pages here, you'll see credits to fellow collectors half way around the world... Often times, the Tokyo Disneyland Resort, The Disneyland Paris Resort, and The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort news updates are courtesy of fellow pressed penny collectors living near those locations. Needless to say, collecting Disney elongated coins can make a large world filled with strangers, friendly. What a great hobby.

You know, it seems there are more and more choices for collectors every year. For some, the coins of choice are sets like the Disneyland Seasonal or Holiday pressed nickels, the newer parks or gates. The planchets used in Japan and China make really nice elongated souvenirs too. For others, maybe the purists, there is only one Disneyland, the Anaheim park and they want to press their own, real coins. This author’s choice? Gotta have them all! Penny Machine Smiley

Happy Collecting,
Boomer
