12/31/07 HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!
12/29/07 No new coins to report this weekend. A few ParkPennies.com visitors have volunteered to check the park this next week and we'll be there too. So, stay tuned.
12/28/07 I was just sprucing up the links page and noticed that our friend Claude is having a liquidation / clearance sale! He's the first person we met back in the 90's that was both an avid collector and sold pressed pennies at the Disneyana Shows. He has had his on-line Disney pressed penny store for some time and is offering lots of items including Disney elongated coins and pressed pennies on liquidation / clearance sale! Do check it out.
12/28/07 Report from Kuniaki in Japan! New coins and pictures. Details on the Tokyo Disneyland News page.
12/23/07 It's 79 degrees and sunny, but, there is still snow on top of Disneyland's Matterhorn! Wishing all our friends and visitors a very Merry Christmas. Boomer and the folks at ParkPennies.com.
12/21/07 Wow 'tis the Season to be busy! A Merry Christmas or Happy Holiday to you all. We know many of you are out there getting last minute gifts or goodies, maybe some of you are even getting ready for New Years!
We've found a little time lately to update the Tokyo Disneyland Guides with the latest coins for the ever growing number of TDL collectors and added a search feature for everyone. It's not a really cool search like we hope to have later, but, it helps and trust me, for us it was a real surprise when it worked! Like a fellow collector said while I was "perfecting" it: "A small step for a kid, a giant leap for Boomer!" sad Happy collecting.
12/16/07 Not much going on at the park, but, there is always something fun to do in the penny collecting hobby. If you haven't visited www.pennycollector.com lately, why not check them out? We have known the good folks there for several years now and have been proud to share some of our humble current Disneyland coin scans with their zillions of visitors. You've probably already our scans, but, you have to see their very impressive database of all types of elongated coins and their on-line pressed penny store with LOTS of penny collecting books, coins, etc. etc. Do check them out. If I didn't think you'd like their site, I wouldn't be giving them this free plug! smile
(As long time readers and friends know, we do not accept any paid ads and we only offer a link to sites that have earned it via good content and customer service. If you have a site you'd like us to mention, please submit the site for our consideration here.)
12/13/07 Here is a fun quiz. For Boomer, it was also a good lesson that you should not bet! sad As penny pressers, we know there are copper, zinc and steel pennies. But, which cent weighs the most? smile The answer is on the penny varieties page.
12/09/07 Advanced collectors will want to take an especially close look at the ParkPennies.com linked visitor auctions today. ALSO, our free ParkPennies.com pressed penny offer is ending with Monday's postmarks. (Details below at 11/27/07) We will have other free penny offers, but, not until after the first of the year.

The NEW 2007-8 Seasonal Nickels are Here!
Listed in the Disneyland Elongated Coin Guide, and
The Disneyland Seasonal Nickel Guide
MICKEY! Elongated nickel Cool.. cold? Bback stamp.
MINNIE! Elongated nickel Confetti! Party Time!
Stylin' Santa Mickey Yes! It's two, yes TWO coins in one!
And they're nice! Hand engraved, backstamps and all are dated!




12/06/07New Penny Press! The 2007-8 Seasonal Nickel Machine is up and running beautifully at the exit to the Main Street Opera! The coins are hand engraved, three-dimensional, "Disney Quality" with excellent backstamps! Report by GrandHobbies. More soon.
Here is how to add your eBay Disney pressed penny auctions to the ParkPennies.com visitor auctions page.
12/06/07 The seasonal nickel machine was working intermittently at park opening but, down from about 11:00AM. Should have word later today. The Disney Arcade Staff has been outstanding in their efforts to repair this machine. We know what a challenge intermittent glitches can be, but, the Disney Arcade Tech folks are determined. Updates to follow.
12/05/07 Before you head for the park, you may want to wait for Thursday morning's post. Ron K. was at the cast member party after the close of the park last night and found the machine working at 11:00PM. He reported it to ParkPennies.com just after 10:00AM this morning. MouseEars reported the machine was on stage before the park opened this morning. So, Ron K. found it first, MouseEars reported it first, and Boomer who reported the machine was out of order at about 9:30AM and spent the entire day at the park waiting for the machine, as usual, was the first to complain!
As of Wednesday near park close, the machine is waiting for repair. Completion time is unknown, could be Thursday, could be a few days... We have a ParkPennies.com reporter that will text us shortly after the park opens Thursday morning and throughout that day and each morning for the next few days. So we should know as soon as the new machine is on-stage and working.
12/04/07 Our offer of a free ParkPennies.com coin (Details below at 11/27/07) will be ending in one week! Boomer has enjoyed reading your notes and pressing pennies. He just sent out a pile of envelopes today with notes he knows people will spend hours reading. Well, they are only a few words, but, given his handwriting, it will take hours to figure out what he wrote. crazy If you haven't sent in for your free ParkPennies.com coin, now is the time.
12/04/07 Report as of noon, no new penny press machines found.
12/04/07 ParkPennies.com operatives are currently standing at the gates of The Original Disneyland Park. Penny press machine report... soon!
12/04/07 More new excellently engraved coins at Tokyo DisneySea! Read about them on the ParkPennies.com Tokyo News Page.
12/03/07 Not good news... ParkPennies.com is currently the target of typo-squatting also called URL hijacking. Here are the details for those interested. Bright side... Hey! We've made the Big Time! sad
Given the likely victims of this ploy would be returning ParkPennies.com visitors, who like Boomer, type quickly because they can't wait to see the latest pressed penny news... we offer a bookmark for this page. (Talk about high tech security measures!) smile
12/01/07 Report from Kuniaki in Japan... New coins!
Monthly Medals were released on December. 01 at TDR
TDL - Penny Arcade : Cheshire Cat
TDL - Stellar Sweets : Baby Minnie
TDS - Galleria Disney : Figaro

Also
TDL - Starcade was closed on 14. Nov.
Medal of the month was moved to Stellar Sweets. Event linkage was moved to Planet M Thank you,

Kuniaki Hiraki in Tokyo Japan

Also included in this report are close-up Pictures of these new Tokyo Disneyland Coins. Do take a look at these excellently engraved coins. We're told they were done by the same Master Engraver that used to do all the coins for Disneyland, USA.
11/30/07 We were really happy to see our 11/27/07 offer had already filled our Post Office box with envelopes! We will send the first coins out this next week and hope to see lots more envelopes every day.
11/29/07 Seasonal Nickels soon. But, not yet.
11/27/07 Reports from MouseEars and at least one other ParkPennies.com reader anticipate the arrival of the Disneyland Seasonal Nickels within a week. We will break the news of the arrival here as soon as we have conformation. Boomer is pacing the floor... again!

A ParkPennies.com Pressed Penny!
ParkPennies.com Pressed Penny picture
DW Disneyland Wannabe Guide Number 28

11/27/07 DW Guide description of the coin pictured above: (Horizontal pressed penny image) PARKPENNIES.COM, FOR COLLECTORS OF, DISNEYLAND ® , ELONGATED COINS, Dot border in a style similar to the DL0001 and DN0001, Initials ABC are between bottom center dots for Anastasia, Bob, and Charlotte. First pressed 11/07 by ParkPennies.com. This coin could be one of my top favorites! smile
Last week, we mentioned we'd have a small 'thank you' this Season in appreciation of your visits and links to ParkPennies.com... Well, two very generous, long time friends of ours and the hobby presented ParkPennies.com with the gift of the wonderful die that made the coin pictured above. After an unnecessarily long period of contemplation, an epiphany of both imagination and penny-pinching thrift occurred to Boomer. He thought (drum roll) why not make a gift a ParkPennies pressed penny to our ParkPennies.com friends!? (Yep! Nothing gets past Boomer! crazy) He reasons that with the die he could personally make a ParkPennies.com pressed penny as a gift for you. Cuz he cares, has a terrific new penny die to share, and loves to press pennies. (We also need to keep him busy and out of trouble.)
So, although we can't up a specific time, if you happen to spot one of us at the park, we'll have a coin for you. If you are out of the area, we missed you at Disneyland, or if too many gray-haired guys wearing Hawaiian-style shirts and khaki colored pants have sworn to you they weren't Boomer and ran away screaming...
Just mail a self addressed stamped envelope to: B00MER C/0 R0BERT H0FF, Post Office Box 17812, Anaheim CA 92817. Be sure to include your choice of either a bright uncirculated shiny copper cent or a darker patina circulated copper cent. No strings attached. It's okay to put the coin up on eBay or trade it with another collector for something else. (As if there is anything more priceless or beautiful?) But, please only one per person / address. We do hope to offer the coin to ParkPennies.com visitors every now and then. However, this offer has to end by December 10th, to give Boomer time to carefully make your coin and hopefully get it back to you by December 20th.
Thank you for your gifts of visits, park reports, and links that share our humble site with your friends and web site visitors. And of course, Happy collecting! smile

11/23/07 Wow! The Christmas Season is here already! Even though ParkPennies.com income and budget are $0.00, we're going to do something special this year! It surely won't be any competition for Oprah's cars and fancy freezers. But, we want to say thank you for visiting and linking to ParkPennies. Even though our budget is "modest", we think it's something you'll like. smile
More details soon.
11/21/07 Happy Thanksgiving!
11/21/07 Seasonal Nickels have been released as late as mid December in the past. Don't give up hope.
11/19/07 Folks, we are working on it, but so far we got nothin'!
If you're surfing the 'net to fill in those lonesome hours at the office or because you'd like to read a bit about Disney Parks, this might be a good day to peruse the MiceAge Web Site. If you haven't visited the site recently, you may be interested in their articles about the future plans for California Adventure. They also have the excellent Mouse Chat discussion board. Tell 'um Boomer sent ya. smile
(Do check back here often. We hope to have some penny press news before long.)
If you have another Disney related discussion board or web site in mind that you'd like us to review for mention here, just let us know.
11/17/07 Many machine reports have been received recently. They are very important and appreciated. Without them, we could not confirm when / if a new machine has arrived. However, recently they have shared the theme "no new seasonal nickel machine found". sad As soon as the next change in machine status is reported / confirmed we will post the news on this page first. Until then, rest assured we are listening, searching, snooping, spying and interrogating every day. smile
Best of the Season and happy collecting.
11/17/07 The last report received by ParkPennies.com suggested a technical problem with the seasonal nickel machine.
11/16/07 The park was crowded, the weather excellent, but no new nickel machine. sad
11/15/07 We've added the latest 26 Magical Coins to the Hong Kong Disneyland Magical Coin Press Machine Guides. The images are mostly "stick images" done without the three dimensional "Disney" quality hand engraving we know from the past. Given the many options available to a customer like Disney, and the engraving talent available to their suppliers, I am at a loss to know why images like these are in the Disneyland Resorts, especially given Disney's heritage. On the plus side, it is nice to see new coins especially those with popular themes like Nightmare Before Christmas, Pin Trading and Pirates to name a few. I also have a new found appreciation for the hand-engraved coins of the past that some collectors now call "vintage".
No seasonal nickel machine arrival reports to post so far.
11/14/07 A few visitors, including MouseEars have given arrival dates for the Seasonal Nickels. All arrival times are Sunday or sooner. We have the park covered by friends, fellow collectors and ParkPennies.com operatives every day though next week and will report back as soon as we know for sure the coins are on-stage. Not that anyone is anxious. sad
11/13/07 No new machine to report... yet. Details Wednesday.
11/12/07 Beautiful day at the park! Christmas decorations most everywhere! The Main Street Christmas Tree is up, snow on the castle roof, good friends and a fun day. But, no new penny machines.
11/10/07 sleepy
11/09/07 Boomer reports no new machines today. However, a couple of older machines that are no longer on-stage have been moved to retired status. (Monsters Inc. and The Beauty and the Beast penny sets.) Before you write us... Agreed, the princess machine in Fantasyland has been off-stage for a long time. However, Cast Members in the area still believe the machine will return. A Cast Member at the Main Street Penny Arcade as well as a cornered, frightened Repair Tech that broke under the stress of guest interrogation, confessed the Monsters Inc. and Beauty and the Beast machines probably would not return. Machine location pages have been updated.
11/08/07 Avid collectors, Jon, Mike and Brent report, as of last night, no Seasonal nickels found. A recent MouseEars anony-mouse report targets machine arrival more than a week away. I hope it's sooner, my pacing is starting to wear a hole in the office carpet!
11/07/07 No new machine to report. sad
11/06/07 Nope. Nada. None. No new machines to report today. Reports from MouseEars, Lou, Boomer and one anony-mouse visitor are all in agreement. Our thanks for all your reports. As noted on the Seasonal Nickel page, the set has been commonly placed on-stage in November, often in the the second week of the month. However, the date has been as late as December 12. Hope it's soon. Folks are gettin' antsy and Boomer is pacing!
11/05/07 Boomer reports that the seasonal nickel machine was not on-stage today, but, he'll check again Tuesday.
11/04/07 Beautiful day at the park! I was able to say hi to advanced collectors Aprille and Chuck, but no sign of the seasonal nickel machine yet. Maybe soon?
11/03/07 Lots of rumors about the release of Seasonal Elongated Nickels at Disneyland, USA. (Here is a page with just the Seasonal Elongated Nickel thumbnail images.) Looks like the tradition will continue on for the 13th year! We hope to have word about their arrival soon. If you spot them first, you can share the news with other readers here.
11/03/07 New Tokyo Disneyland Christmas Medals and COM's! (Three-dimensional, nicely hand-engraved coins!) Read about them on the Tokyo Disneyland Pressed Penny Medals News page.
11/01/07 Several new Magical Coins reported at Hong Kong Disneyland! See the marquees on the Hong Kong Disneyland News Page.
11/01/07 Over 130 visitor auctions are currently running on eBay! Do check them out, there are some neat coins offered from the latest NBC set to a steel cent "Quality Inn across from Disneyland" from back in the 1980's.
10/31/07 NEW! The 2007 Nightmare Before Christmas quarter set arrives! MouseEars is first to report the new machine! While Boomer was on the way to the park, MouseEars had already sent in his new machine report. Guess Boomer is going to have to get up a little earlier in the morning! Smile Pictures and guides to follow...
UPDATE: We have added the new NBC set to the Disneyland Pressed Penny Guides and the Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween Quarters Page with pictures and descriptions. The new coins are: DL0419, DL0420 and DL0421 + Backstamp (As in our guides, click "Frames Yes" at the top of the page to hold these pictures in frames or CTRL click to open them in a new tab. Default is a new window.)
As you can see, this year, the Nightmare Before Christmas coins feature only line art figures instead of the three dimensional hand engraved (in-graved?) images of the past. However, the coins are all dated 2007 and also have dated backstamps. I know they will be a big hit with many ParkPennies.com readers. smile
NOTE: Some of the engraving on these coins, most noticeably the smaller lettering is not legible. However, given close examination, one can assume or divine if you will, that they all are inscribed "Tim Burton's" and "C Disney" ("C Touchstone" was dropped this year). I have read your emails and I agree, the current quality of engraving is not what it has been in the past. I do not know why, the Tokyo Disneyland coins seem better than ever. Personally, I'm going to place one of the coins face down so the cool backstamp shows... maybe more than one. sad
0/31/07 We didn't know what Boomer should wear for Halloween. We couldn't decide if Boomer is scarier as a rotting living dead zombie or if Boomer is scarier as... Boomer. Well, whatever he decides, you'll probably be able to spot him at the park today.
Happy collecting and Happy Halloween.
10/30/07 Our special thanks to the ParkPennies.com readers that submitted park reports over the past few days. Rumors have been heard, but, no new machines have been reported since Ratatouille. Maybe soon?
10/26/07 Cool Visitor Auctions, updated Disneyland Guides, Hong Kong Disneyland News and Penny Press Machine Location pages all await you!
10/25/07 NEW! Ratatouille is at Goofy's Kitchen, in the Disneyland Hotel! (Now, be honest, aren't you glad I didn't make any of those Mouse, Rat, Goofy's Kitchen jokes?) Here they are and reported first by MouseEars, a top anony-mouse contributor to ParkPennies.com.

New Goofy's Kitchen Coins!

10/25/07 A valued anony-mouse reporter, now code named "MouseEars" here at ParkPennies.com, wrote to assure readers there are current plans for a Nightmare Before Christmas set, Seasonal nickels set and maybe a Year of a Million Dreams coin too! MouseEars also reported the arrival of a Ratatouille set today! Of course, ParkPennies.com never posts anony-mouse coin reports without first confirming them. So, you really aren't reading this?! Seriously, Boomer has a unusually high level of confidence in this anonymous report and is on his way to the park. When he returns, he hopes to have Ratatouille coins to scan and a machine location report or a really good story why he left his desk and went to the park! Crazy
Our thanks again to "MouseEars" for sharing their very timely new coin reports with ParkPennies.com.
10/23/07 The Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea Guides have been updated with the latest Tokyo Disneyland Coins of the Month and COM Thumbnails. (My favorite TDL coins!)
If you like ParkPennies.com, please share the site via your very welcome blog and web site links. They make our day. smile
10/22/07 No new coins on stage since the Pirates set... yet.
10/19/07 This is the historic time frame for the arrival of the Nightmare Before Christmas quarters and we are only a few weeks away from the usual arrival of the seasonal nickels! Add to that more rumors of a Ratatouille pressed penny set and we could see some cool new coins soon!? You know we'll be looking when we are at the park and we'll be at the park often! Do let us know if you spot them first. Have a great weekend and Happy Collecting!
10/18/07 CORRECTION / CLEARIFICATION of my fumble worded 10/15/07 post. The DL0001 and DL0002 are of course, key coins in the Disneyland on-stage collection and worthy of mention. However, my post should have read "...appears to be an early / progressive example...". The coin appears to be early, possibly progressive. If progressive, it not as extreme an example as we have pictured here. A closer look may be justified by collectors looking for an early example of a DL0001. It isn't often I use too few words! Many thanks to ParkPennies visitor and avid collector, Rus, for catching my fumble. smile
10/15/07 Some interesting visitor auctions are linked to ParkPennies.com this week! Do take a look. They include a DL0001 and DL0002 pair that look to be very early rolls. The DL0001 appears to be an early progressive example of the modified on-stage grip. Also, a Millennium Mickey from Tokyo Disneyland is up for auction. A controversial coin to say the least. You might find it controversial too? It wasn't on-stage long. Happy collecting.
10/15/07 No new coins to report. But, it could be the lull before the storm? So, great chance to shine up those pennies, scavenge those quarters and of course, check ParkPennies.com often! sad
10/10/07 The Disneyland Pressed Penny Guide has been updated to include the new Pirate Set, Pirate Skeleton at the Helm, pressed penny number DL0416, Pirate Skull and Cross Swords Logo, pressed penny number DL0147, and Pirate Princess Logo, pressed penny number DL0418. This new, well themed penny press is located next to the Haunted Mansion coffin quarter press in the alcove next to the new location of Le Bat en Rouge Shope in New Orleans Square. We will update the penny press machine location pages soon.
Our thanks to you for your visits and for sharing our humble hobby pages with friends via emails, blog and web site links. They make our day! Happy collecting, Boomer and the ParkPennies.com folks.
10/09/07 NEW! ARrrrrrah! Thar be PIRATES!!!!!!!!
At long last! The Pirates' pressed penny set ParkPennies.com readers have anxiously anticipated!
Although we can't help but think that these coins would have greatly benefited from the hand engraving skills of Jimmy Vargas, our first impression is very favorable. The dot borders, Disneyland Resort banners, and backstamps are very nice in this collector's opinion and we think the set will be a big hit. The cabinet is themed very nicely, the coins are rolling full and near perfectly flat! So, do take a look at them in person and let us know your thoughts!
If you press them while they are still on-stage you can have all three coins for a mere $1.53 or on eBay for $1.53 plus a pirate's ransom! (I joke!?)
Our thanks to the anony-mouse mystery messenger that brought this new set to our attention.
Although these are early, small, poor quality pictures, soon we will have much larger, poor quality pictures!. crazy (The Disneyland Pressed Penny Guides will be updated this week with close up images, descriptions, and guide numbers.) So please check back and Happy collecting.

10/09/07 An interesting, but, unconfirmable anony-mouse message received early today by ParkPennies.com has sent an ecstatic Boomer along with an anxious fellow ParkPennies.com co-conspirator to the usually unexplored depths of The Disneyland Resort, Anaheim. Report to follow upon their (our) return.
10/09/07 Bigfoot sightings, two. New Disneyland elongated, pressed, flattened, crushed, squashed, rolled, mashed, smashed, stamped, squished, smushed, memory, keepsake, stretched and pinched penny souvenir coin sightings... total, zero!
10/04/07 Sleepy pressed penny collector!
10/01/07 Our first images of the Tokyo Disneyland Resort October Coins of the Month are up. Our thanks to Kuniaki Hiraki in Tokyo Japan.
09/29/07 13 new additions to the Tokyo Disneyland Resort Guides we also updated the Tokyo Disneyland Coins of the Month. (These are the previously reported coins that were issued this month.)
09/26/07 Quote from the Hee Haw TV series... "Now, we're not ones to go 'round spreadin' rumors, Why, really we're just not the gossipy kind, No, you'll never hear one of us repeating gossip, So you'd better be sure and listen close the first time!"
Are you listening close? smile Well... there could be two new sets of pressed pennies on their way to the Disneyland Resort! Now, we need not mention to long time readers that we normally wait for non anony-mouse conformations from multiple sources before posting. However, there have been so many of you asking for a Pirates set (!) over the past couple of years, we had to share this rumor. Story goes that a Pirates of the Caribbean set and a Ratatouille set are planned! Based on reports, gossip and research, we're thinking it is more than 50% probable and the machines could be here by the end of October. So do check back if / when / as we hear more we'll post it here. Thanks to all the folks that have kindly emailed us lately and happy collecting.
09/21/07 At 2:15 today, it took us a half hour wait just to exit the Downtown Disney parking lot! Looked like the cars in line were waiting to board a submarine ride or something! crazy It's this reporter's opinion that the park is really short staffed. However, the important stuff was all good. The weather was great and the penny press machines we tried today were adjusted to perfection! It couldn't have been a better day, unless, maybe we had spotted a new coin on stage. smile
If you're the first to find a new coin, here is how to share the find.. the ParkPennies.com comment form.

09/20/07 Two more space alien sightings reported, but, still no new coins!

space ship

09/19/07 No new coins to report. Rumors, but, no confirmed sightings. Guess that puts new Disneyland coins right up there with Big Foot and space aliens! But, do check back, ParkPennies.com staff and other unnamed covert operatives are constantly searching for Big Foot, space aliens and... new Disneyland pressed pennies! If you spot a new machine or coin, share the news with other ParkPennies.com readers here.
If you are surfing at work, during long commercial breaks on TV or at your leisure, do check out the visitor auctions. If you're surfing ParkPennies.com while "driving", please get your eyes back on the road!

09/11/07 Not everyone has had a chance to press one of the new Main Street nickels. Matter of fact, I haven't even seen one on eBay yet. So, thought I'd feature the coin here especially for visitors that are far from the park.

You know we love pressed nickels and the original Main Street USA DL0251 nickel was also the first Disney elongated coin to have a backstamp. So, we couldn't overlook the latest Main Street nickel revision.

Generally, my impressions are much like those of some ParkPennies readers. As you can see below, the art work is basically unchanged, Minnie and Mickey, Main Street USA, no border... However, unlike the coin it replaced, the DL0415 has only "line art" engraving. I was surprised to see it. Many collectors thought the older style, two-dimensional "line art" had been phased out some years ago with state of the art professionally hand engraved three dimensional "Disney Quality" dies. Today, collectors take high quality engraving for granted at Disney Resorts like Tokyo Disneyland in Japan and Hong Kong Disneyland in China. Matter of fact, Tokyo Disneyland has already introduced more than a hundred new high-quality, hand engraved, 3-D designs just this year. But, I digress....

When the Disney pressed coins below are compared side by side, even my old eyes can identify the coin on the bottom as Jaq, the coin at the top left as Mickey and Minnie. And the new Main Street USA nickel, top right, as... a Picasso? Hey, I'm trying to be positive here! smile

Seriously, we don't know why recently issued Disneyland, USA coins have often lost detail, borders and now engraving quality over the past year or so. However, some Rumors have been heard. One writer suggested borderless elongated coins are in preparation for future penny press conversions to planchets (Metal disks as used in Japan and Hong Kong). They sited possible changes in US coinage, laws, and the increased revenues from planchets. Another rumor suggested that Disneyland is making some of their own dies by machine and that's why some coins like the Main Street nickel are less detailed and borderless?

If you can correct, clarify or confirm these rumors, we're all ears! Thanks to all that have sent emails, we do read them all. Even the one that claimed the new nickel looks like Pooh!? sad Happy collecting...

Currently there are about 125 visitor auctions linked. Do check them out, could be something you're looking for or even something you can't pass up.
Also, it's getting to be that time of year... seasonal nickels and haunted mansion holiday quarters are probably just around the corner. You could be the first to report them! Wow! Instant fame!! sad  Just be the first to let us know via the ParkPennies.com text message, email or contact form.
09/04/07
We all took the morning off and headed to the Anaheim park. Lots of fun stuff to do, crowds were moderate, weather good in the morning. But, no new machines or returning machines to report. Some machines have moved about since our Penny Press Machine Location pages were last updated. Probably will update them soon. The TDL News page has a new update or two.

Thank you
08/29/07 We've been keeping busy with a few touch ups here on the web site. A fish could ride a bicycle better than Boomer can program a web site, but, given you are here, we probably don't need to mention that.sad Stay tuned for some news. We are all ears here and the season is near for Nightmare Before Christmas elongated quarters and the seasonal nickel set!
08/19/07 We didn't post pictures of this set when it first arrived on-stage, but, we are getting caught up with the backlog of new coin entries in the guides, so we have a little time to do some fun stuff. smile

Two of the coins, as you may remember, served some time at the Grand Californian and were taken off-stage when the 2007 Chip N Dale coin arrived. Their new home is at the Main Street Penny Arcade in Disneyland and they have similar, but, new backstamps in their new machine. The gem of this set, in my humble opinion, is the Lucky Penny. I can't remember ever seeing a lucky penny at any Disney park before, so it looks like a first. Given the popularity of Lucky Penny style elongated coins, I'm betting this coin will be very popular with visitors. (Not a hard bet to make if you've had to wait in line to press one.) Here's a close-up of the coin....

For those readers that have been asking... we have also updated the Tokyo Disneyland Coins of the Month pages. Have a great weekend. Happy collecting!

07/29/07 Good news to report! Chuck N., the well known Disneyland elongated coin collector, just returned from DLRP. He spent several days searching the Disneyland Resort, Paris, adjacent Disney Village and hotels looking for elongated coins. His report confirms that the Sequoia Lodge Hotel machines, which pressed United States cents are gone. However, the two four-play Rain Forest Cafe hand crank machines are still on site. Chuck also agreed to shared the pictures below with ParkPennies.com readers. Based on the pictures and report, we have corrected the DLRP elongated coin guide numbers to reflect the machine "crank" coin order.

More than a few ParkPennies.com readers have asked why we can't have a set like this at the Original Disneyland! A few collectors have told us they phoned the park and have written letters. Maybe we just don't "squeak" as much here as the mice in Tokyo Disneyland? Well, ParkPennies.com is about to add the July and August coins of the month to the TDL guides. That will make a total of 75 coins of the month, just for TDLR! And there isn't a single one for any other Disney park?! sad The good news, collectors in the US can collect Coins of the Month... from Japan! crazy Sorry, time for my nap. Boomer's nap time
07/29/07 Good news to report! Chuck N., the well known Disneyland elongated coin collector, just returned from the Disneyland Resort, Paris. He spent several days searching DLRP, adjacent Disney Village and hotels looking for elongated coins. His report confirms that the Sequoia Lodge Hotel machines, which pressed United States cents, are gone. However, the two four-play Rain Forest Cafe hand crank machines are still on site. Chuck also agreed to share some DLRP penny press pictures, which are posted to the DLRP news page. Based on the pictures, we have corrected the DLRP elongated coin guide numbers to reflect the machine "crank" coin order.
07/28/07 Lots of new eBay listings are linked (90+) to the Visitor's Auction Page. Do take a look...
By the way, many readers may already know about how the auction page works, but if not, you can find out more here. Also several kind readers have contributed to the ParkPenneis.com auction tips page and shared some of their tips. It's aimed for people new to selling Disneyland ec's on eBay, but, some well known eBay regulars have given it good reviews and we are always looking for more tips to add.
Happy collecting and have a great weekend, unless you waited to read this Monday while you're at work! parkpennies.com smile
07/22/07 We are currently working on a ParkPennies.com "remodel". Don't worry, we'll still have this "folk art" look . The ParkPennies.com updates will focus on some of the changes you've requested most in the way our pressed penny guides and news are presented, linked and accessed. We will also be making additional, more technical updates later this year. (If Boomer ever starts reading those software programming manuals!) Stay tuned...
07/22/07 Thank you very much for visiting ParkPennies.com and sharing our web site via emails, news groups, blogs and web site links. We do see them and they really make our day! As long time readers know, those links and referrals have motivated us to do our best. We want to provide a Disneyland elongated coin reference guide that you are proud to use and recommend. parkpennies.com smile
07/21/07 A few updates / adds have been made to the guides for Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland, Anaheim recently. More to come. We'll post more details here later this week for readers that prefer a quick reference to updates.
07/02/07 Lots of folks on vacation this time of year. If you are visiting the park, don't forget to print a copy of the penny press machine locations lists. We'll be away from the PC now and then this summer also. So, please bare with us if email replies etc. are not as fast as usual. For now, please have a terrific 4th of July and of course, happy collecting!
06/30/07 Our thanks to the visitors that contacted GrandHobbies auctions and GrandHobbies direct sales, our June sponsor. If you are looking for on-stage Disneyland or Tokyo Disneyland elongated coins or books, do mention ParkPennies.com when you contact them. penny smilie
06/29/07 There are some interesting visitor auctions on eBay closing over the next few days. Do check them out. No new coins reported at Disneyland, Anaheim. If you spot one, do share the news. Visitor reports are an important part of our updates. Also, your name is immortalized in print as the first person to report the new coin
06/20/07 Over the next few months, you'll see a few mostly small changes at ParkPennies.com.
Since 2004, the internet browsers used by visitors have greatly improved. For example, with IE7, holding down the CTRL button and clicking on one of our links, say a "open in window #1" link, will open that coin picture in a new "tab" or browser page instead of the top left window. There, the coin can be held from guide page to guide page, compared with coins held in other tabs, zoomed etc. Of course, ParkPennies.com frames *will still be here* if you want to use them, but, they will be optional. Indexes and navigation will be updated to reflect the growth in this site from a single Excel file back in 2004, to the hundreds of pages and thousands of images offered today. We hope to make that content easier to find also!penny smile
So, please be patient with us. As you know, we are Disneyland elongated coin collectors, surely not computer programmers. That's why we say, over the next few months, we will be making a few small changes. crazy penny smile Any visitors willing to help out and familiar with PHP, MYSQL or Javascript, please contact Boomer !
06/19/07 We are updating the Tokyo Disneyland Guides. Most recently, the Tokyo Disneyland Resort coins of the month series. This is one "high concept" collection! Every coin has the name of the park, Disneyland or DisneySea, and is dated. Originally, TDR had just one coin of the month machine. Now, there are two in Tokyo Disneyland Park and another one in Tokyo DisneySea. For more than two years now, each coin has been on-stage for only that one month, giving it's spot in the park up to the next coin on the first day of the next month. Here you can see this very cool set... Tokyo Disneyland Coins of the Month thumbnail images page and the Tokyo Disneyland coins of the Month, full sized images page. We hope to have some Disneyland USA news before too long. Happy collecting.
06/14/07 Use of ParkPennies.com Content If you wish to share any ParkPennies.com content with others, via hotlinks, quotes, etc. on your web site or blog, please refer to The ParkPennies.com Terms of Use. It may answer your questions and provide an easy way to do it for free. We are honored by your interest. Thank you!

Some visitors have asked about ParkPennies.com sharing our content with commercial sites. As many readers will remember, PennyCollector.com and ParkPennies.com have offered reciprocal links for years. We have also personally known some of the very nice folks associated with their web site and acquired companies over several years. We welcomed the chance to share some ParkPennies.com images of Disneyland Park (DL) and Hong Kong Disneyland (HKDL) coins, for as long as the coins are on-stage with The PennyCollector.com.
It's a great opportunity for them to share newly issued coin images with their visitors and for ParkPennies.com to introduce ourselves to some PennyCollector.com visitors. As many of you know, we would do this only with a very special web site and we think PennyCollector.com is.
06/12/07 ZZzzzZZZzzzz sleepy Nothing new to report at the park lately. So if you are at work and trying your darnedest to look busy.... smiley or looking for a last minute Father's Day gift... there are lots of visitor auctions on eBay and please don't forget the ParkPennies.com sponsor this month, GrandHobbies auctions.
06/11/07 We are falling behind in adding coins to the TDL guides. We don't have a good excuse... but... Tokyo Disneyland (TDL News) has been rolling out new coins like crazy! Ok, it is our story and we're stickin' with it! crazy Just on June 1, 2007 TDL Resort issued another 21 coins! Three of them were the cool, extremely popular Tokyo Disneyland Coins of the Month (Full-sized images) (Thumbnail images). As advanced collectors know, the "penny" press machines in Hong Kong Disneyland (Full-sized images) (Thumbnail images) and Tokyo Disneyland use planchets or tokens, not coins to make their souvenirs. The planchets make for a large, very clean looking elongated souvenir about the size of a pressed quarter. If you haven't seen them before, do click one of the links in this post. Poor Boomer so far away from Tokyo Disneyland and no coins of the month here in Anaheim. sad Thank goodness for eBay! smile

06/07/07 Of course, ParkPennies.com folks check the park often to keep our machine location checklists and guides current. But, it's the help from readers that really makes the difference. Our thanks to all readers that have contacted us with machine locations and new coin updates. That teamwork makes for the great guides and checklists that are here for us all.
Matter of fact, just recently, with your help, we updated the Disneyland penny press machine location pages again. The machines have been moved around a bit from past list locations, but, none have been removed or added recently. Please note that the Frontierland machine, usually located on the wooden sidewalk, is listed, but, not currently on-stage. We have hope that it will return soon and did not have the heart to delete it.
Please feel free to email the machine location checklists to friends headed for the park. As long as the checklists are not modified, we invite you to share them with your web site, blog visitors or email group. Even via a "hot-link" if you'd like. smile
05/29/07 News of a new Pirates coin! You can read what we know so far about it on the Hong Kong Disneyland Magical Coins News Page.
05/27/07 More coins at Tokyo Disneyland! Be sure to check the TDL News page.
05/26/07 ParkPennies has accepted a sponsor for the month of June! Several ParkPennies.com readers have standing orders for "all new Disneyland elongated coins" or have purchased complete "on-stage" sets, books etc. from eBay's GrandHobbies auctions, (direct email). We really appreciate their cash er ah support of this reference site for month of June.
05/25/07 Hey! Looks like the start of a fun three day weekend! The current eBay promotion has brought a lot of new Disneyland elongated coin auctions too. But, no new coins at the park. sad
So, what say we take a look back at a bit of nostalgia from 1977? Now, the coin isn't an official Disneyland issue and it's not really an elongated coin. But, it does say "Disneyland", it is sort of a pressed coin and it just could be the basis of that rumor a few years ago!?
We hope you find this unusual coin as amusing as we did. smile

The devil and Disney! Together Again!!!
Devil and Disneyland together again?
You be the judge. Crazy Penny Smiley Face

05/23/07 Today Ron and Leola reported to ParkPennies that the newest Disneyland press has been moved from the Main Street Opera House exit to the Main Street Penny Arcade. Up until recently, the Pin Trader, Crystal Arcade and Stitch machine shared space with the Disneyland signs and signature penny press (Last reported at the Penny Arcade) and the Main Street nickel press (Now off-stage) in the area adjacent to the Mad Hatter Hat Shop in Opera House exit.
Our thanks to the fellow collectors that have been reporting these new locations. Once the dust has settled from the construction and refurbishment on Main Street, we hope to update the Disneyland penny press machine location guides.
05/19/07 PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN PRESSED PENNY REPORT!
Collectors have long waited for the arrival of a replacement for the retired pirates elongated coin. As advanced collectors will remember, the single play Pirates' penny machine was on-stage for many years at the Pieces of Eight Shop and a great, popular souvenir of the Pirates' attraction. Inquires here regarding the return of the machine or a replacement machine were constant until they spiked higher with the first Pirates' movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl back in 2003. Requests went crazy when Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest was released in 2006!
Over that time, many elongated coins were issued, but not much for Pirates fans. The 50th Magical Milestones pennies offered only one pirate themed coin, the 2003 magical milestones pressed penny. The magical Milestones coins were then replaced by what some collectors have charitably called "unremarkable examples of Disneyland pressed pennies".
However, there was always hope. Given the "E ticket" Pirates attraction, Disney's extreme fanfare and promotional extravaganza of the first, second and now third Pirates movies and today's Disneyland Resort's world movie premier of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End a commemorative set of Pirates elongated coins seemed possible, maybe even probable.
So, needless to say, Boomer had to check it out. He arrived at the park about 6:15 AM, and was just in time to secure a place in line only ten feet from the turnstiles.. the DCA turnstiles! crazy Yes, there was a line from the Disneyland turnstiles all the way to the gates at Disney's California Adventure! (Looked like a lots of penny collectors were there already!) Once inside the park, the spotlights, bleachers, red carpets, movie cameras and crowds around the newly refurbished and reopened Main Street Penny Arcade seemed a dead giveaway that a Pirates themed penny press had arrived? Sorry, no. sad But, the day still was a good one. Pin trader Howard reminded Boomer that there are rides at the park too. Indeed there are and the lines were short for the first hour or two. Cool! smile
Some machines have been moved around in the park, so the Disneyland penny press machine location guides will need another update. We think there is a new penny set in the near future too... maybe it will be ArrrRRrrr Pirate's machine?
05/10/07 Sandy wrote to share with us that the Alexa Toolbar search box will link to most ParkPennies.com coin images by just entering the coin guide number. Cool!
05/09/07 We enjoy visitor comments and they may be sent "Anony-Mousely" if you wish. But, if you would like a reply from us... please include your email address.
05/07/07 Whoooah! Boomer just spotted some nice steelie rolls and a Disneyland Tower of Terror set up for sale on eBay! They are also linked on the visitors' auctions page.

05/04/07 Mike P., the avid collector well known to many Disney ec fans, was first to report that a NEW machine is on-stage! The machine offers three elongated cents, Crystal Arcade, Pin Trading and Stitch. We are off to the park and hope to have scans and details later this morning. Hey wait... "pin trading" do people collect those too? crazy Scans and guide updates to follow.

04/27/07 A few days ago, we asked for your feedback and suggestions. We are getting caught up with the emails and again would like to say thanks for helping us make the web site better for fellow collectors.
The most suggested request? A sofa-sized picture of Boomer? No. A way to send cash donations to ParkPennies? No. sad A "condensed guide". Yes! One anonymous visitor asked for a guide that would be a page or two with descriptions and small pictures. We'd like to... but, here is a single page guide of just current machine locations. You can see why a guide a few pages long is a challenge. Type size get really small, there are no pictures and the descriptions are a bit cryptic. And, that page has only about 175 coins! Just the Disneyland Park Guide with only the coins that were on-stage and behind just one gate of The Disneyland Resort covers more than 400 coin dies, not counting 100's of backstamps or coin type variations. If we made the guide with pictures only one half inch high, the abbreviated Disneyland Park only guide would run about twenty pages. If we add key variations, comparisons, backstamps... well, time to get a handcart to haul that baby! crazy
That said, we do have the current effort, the Disneyland Pressed Penny Guide Excel file - (HTML) which we will eventually update to a mirror of the text portions on-line ParkPennies.com guides. The font size can be changed to suit and you many hide columns or rows if you like. We are also extremely open to your format / design suggestions for a future "Guide Lite" or any other features you'd like to see here. Just contact us.
05/01/07 Polly, and others that have requested information recently, we try to reply to all e-mails, however, we must have your e-mail address. crazy
04/26/07 Boomer is reading the latest copy of TEC News. Very cool newsletter! If you are already a member of The Elongated Collectors, you'll enjoy this issue! Even has a cool membership elongated nickel enclosed! If you are not a member of The Elongated Collectors, why not join too? crazy
04/23/07 Ok, we got some suggestions! We appreciate them very much, thank you for taking the time to write and we are still open to more, just contact us. (Suggestions accompanied by large sums of cash will get preferential treatment, however, we read them all. smile )
Already, we're working on the number one requested file, "a smaller, easy to edit, Disneyland Pressed Penny Guide". As you can see, it is an Excel file format and has its roots in the guide first created by Chris, Nancy, Bert and Bob with collaborations from many and later updated for years by Lou. It's been here at ParkPennies from the start, but, it's been buried in the links and is much in need of updates. Good news, within the next week or so, we will have a minor update to the file with the more recent coins added to the existing spreadsheet. The Excel file is easy to convert to Word, Text, etc. and is offered per the ParkPennies.com Term of Use enjoy. We also plan to do a major update to the file which will include all additions and corrections that you've seen in the ParkPennies.com web site guides. However, that update will be part of the new on-line data base search project, so it will take some time. (Mainly cuz I don't have the foggiest idea of how to do that yet! crazy)
04/22/07 WoOOOoohoo! The servers were swapped and we are still here! I wish now I had bet those $'s that it would work.face We will be adding some new stuff too. So, if an old file is missing or if you'd like us to add a new file, or guide, etc., now is the time to let us know! Nothing is cooler to us than adding something our visitors want. Just contact us.
04/21/07 We are switching servers today. It may be a bit rocky. See you on the other side.
You may have heard this from other sources, but in case you have not: The Penny Arcade on Main Street will close down on Monday, April 23 for a small refurbishment project. Approximate opening date is May 18. The coin press machines inside will be relocated to other areas of the Park or moved backstage during the down. No machines or dies will be changed out or permanently removed during this time. So OK to tell folks to NOT panic when they see the curtains up on Monday am!
We appreciate this report and have posted it in part because it supports an independent report that the Main Street Penny Arcade will be closed for refurbishment. Also, two unnamed ParkPennies.com operatives witnessed a group of Arcade related Cast Members sizing up the Penny Arcade area Monday. (We could have heard what they were saying if not for the crinkling sound of our tin foil hats and age related hearing losses. sad)
Personally, I'd think that changes could be made to the machines while they are off-stage, however, we have not even heard a rumor to support that possibility so far.
04/18/07 An anony-mouse report to ParkPennies.com reads:
04/17/07 The Disneyland USA Machine Location pages have been updated. As long time collectors will tell you, machines are often temporarily moved for construction, repair or just to keep us on our toes. However, if you have a copy of the latest machine locations page, you'll have a much easier time finding one coin or all the coins on your wish list. We never leave home without it!
04/17/07 We have recently updated the Tokyo Disneyland Coins of the Month (Full-sized), Tokyo Disneyland Coins of the Month (Thumbnail images), The Tokyo Disneyland 2007 Medals Guide, and The Tokyo DisneySea Medals Guide. As you can see, the Tokyo Disneyland Resort coins are now issued at a rate that is in excess of The Disneyland Resorts in Anaheim, Hong Kong and Paris combined. Collectors of TDL coins are encouraged to visit The Tokyo Disneyland News page for updates.
ParkPennies.com currently plans to add greater depth and separation to our coverage of the four Disneyland Parks. When completed, each park will also have it's own "homepage".  (If Boomer doesn't have a meltdown first. crazy face )
04/16/07 Some extra nice coins have been put up for auction by ParkPennies.com visitors. You can check them out on the ParkPennies visitor's eBay auctions page. Here is how you can add your auctions to this popular page.
04/16/07 More new Tokyo Disneyland coins! Check them out on the TDL News page.
04/11/07 ParkPennies visitor auctions offer some extra neat coins this week. Some are closing today and are currently at only 99 cents! Some others are seldom seen for sale. Take a look.
04/11/07 Lots of visitor reports have been received via the ParkPennies comment form lately. However, no reports of new machines have been received. Boomer and friends have also searched but found no new coins so far this month.
Some of the reports received from ParkPennies.com visitors have suggested that Disneyland should offer a collectible elongated coin series like the Tokyo Disneyland Coins of the Month. However, we have heard no official word to date.
04/05/07 A really nice selection of coins are being offered by ParkPennies.com visitors today. Advanced collectors will want to take a close look. Click this link to open the ParkPennies visitor's eBay auctions page.
04/01/07 Tokyo Disneyland is issuing new coins often, very often. New release information, news and pictures are all now posted to the Tokyo Disneyland elongated coin news page.
03/31/07 Of interest to people who collect the DW coins... A Pan Art elongated coin was just listed on eBay. (Coin # DW0001.) The auction is linked on the ParkPennies visitor auctions page. Circa 1970!
03/31/07 Three new coins were reported at The Fantasia gift shop in the Disneyland Hotel. The shop now has two penny presses. The new machine features three coins. Each coin has a different image of Dopey from the movie Snow White.
Boomer calculates that the machine was placed on stage late Friday. These coins will be added to the DR Disneyland Resort Hotels and Downtown Disney Guide soon. (Images to follow.)
03/29/07 Boomer is headed to the park Friday. We'll have a report late afternoon if he finds any new coins. However, ParkPennies visitor reports are always welcome and often first. So don't be shy about contacting us about a new coin find you'd like to share.
03/27/07 Several Parkpennies visitors have reported "no new coins" over the past few weeks. Even Boomer has been stealthing about the park with the hope of finding a new coin. Given the unique alignment of the stars and those voices Boomer keeps telling us he hears, we hope to report a new machine or two this month.
03/27/07 Tokyo Disneyland Resort collectors, be sure to check out the Tokyo Disneyland pressed penny page for new posts. If you don't collect TDL coins yet, take a look at these cool Tokyo Disneyland Coins of the Month! You may want to start! Tokyo Disneyland pressed peny link
03/25/07 Alan S. reported that the Princess Fantasy Faire machines are back on stage. No coin changes reported. (ParkPennies.com usually does not comment about machines that are temporarily out of service, however, these machines were off-stage for a longer than usual time.)
03/11/07 New coins at The Tokyo Disneyland Resort. Visit the TDL News page for the latest. (This set is written in Japanese.) We've also updated the Tokyo Disneyland Coins of the month pages: Tokyo Disneyland Thumbnail images of all Coins of the Month and Full Sized images of all Tokyo Disneyland Coins of the Month.
03/08/07 Just a note to say "Thanks" to ParkPennies visitors who from time to time share our humble web site with friends, on-line groups and web sites. We don't always know who shared the link, but we do notice them and they often make our day. parkpennies thank you!
03/01/07 Caren D., Mike P., Lou S. Grandhobbies, Ricky, and other readers have contacted ParkPennies to let fellow collectors know that the Princess Faire machines are off-stage. The machines are expected to return before long.
02/28/07 Lou S. recently reported "Type II" variations of the Tokyo Disneyland TDS0511 and TDS0513. We are hope to add the Type II variations of these coins to the TDL guide soon.
We believe collectors of Tokyo Disneyland coins should be on the lookout for slight die variations. As evidenced by recent reports, lately, an increasing number of dies have been replaced with similar dies often early in their service cycle.
As always, Tokyo Disneyland medal collectors are encouraged to visit the TDL News page, as only some select TDL news is posted here.
02/25/07 Here is some more excitement! An eBay auction for a set of Jack Steiner coins, cent, steel cent, and nickel! If you'd like to know more about these coins, you may also read a ParkPennies.com article about The Jack Steiner Retirement coins.
02/21/07 It looks like rain at Disneyland. There are no new coins to report and there is some right cool temps across the United States. sad penny But, it looks like a great time to watch an auction or two on eBay! smiley penny
Currently, there are several neat coins offered by fellow ParkPennies.com visitors via the visitors’ eBay auctions page. Some of the auctions that caught my eye were the "MerlYn" retired error set offered by Grandhobbies and Toypauper has some very cool, hardly ever seen Disneyana steel cents up for auction! There is also a nice selection of coins from WDW and Disneyland offered by Alanlyndsay and N2disney. Click the link above, maybe you’ll spot a coin you’ve been searching for.

02/21/07 Lots of new auctions listed on the visitors’ auctions page ! Disneyland, WDW, on-stage, new coins and retired.
02/18/07 Grandhobbies reported new coins at the Grand Californian Hotel Acorn Gift Shop. The machine was gone Friday morning. We believe the machine was back on stage and working with the new coins on Saturday morning. Available are two previous dies from 2006 and a 2007 Chip N Dale; all have backstamps. (The 2007 Chip N Dale coin is a "family" version of the controversial 2006 Chip N Dale.) Scans and guide updates to follow.
02/16/07 Friday reports from Disneyland visitors Nancy, John, Lou, Stasi and Boomer are "no new machines found". Weather was not bad in the mid 70’s and sunny. Boomer will be at the park again Sunday or Monday with an update soon after. If you spot a changed machine, do contact us.
02/16/07 ZZZzzzz pressed penny sleep gif
02/12/07 Grandhobbies reported backstamp changes on the Sword in the Stone set. The guides have been updated. New numbers were assigned to reflect the backstamp changes. The new numbers are DL0402, DL0403 and DL0404.
02/10/07 A set of Disneyland Tower of Terror coins are up for auction. These coins mentioned here, usually bring nearly $500.00 each. Also a George Meyer nickel is up for sale. These coins have no reserve and are offered by a long time collector. Links to these auctions and other cool coin auctions are on the visitor auctions page.
02/06/07 By popular request, many guide pages have larger images and have been "optimized" to reduce load times / bandwidth demands.
Be sure to check back this next week for a new Guide, Arcade Shop issues! The coins pressed from dies engraved at the park will have their own section. As advanced collectors know, these coins are very limited and very cool! Pressed Penny SmileyWe have only a couple of coins for this new Guide so far, but, hope to add to the list as coins are issued and / or reported. Do contact us if you know of other coins that should be included in this new section of extremely limited issue coins.
02/05/07 Two new auction items caught our eye. You might want to check them out too. They are a pair of the just issued George Meyer Retirement coins and a Disneyland First Edition Penny Book retired back in 2000.
We’ll are always eagerly reading your emails and will be searching the park again this week, so, be sure to check back for the latest news.
Happy collecting!
02/04/07 The George Meyer Cast Member retirement coin from Wednesday will be added to the Guide... soon. Yes, we believe, based on current reports, that there were about 100 or possibly fewer nickels vended from the single die machine at the party. The die broke in the machine about one hour after the start of the party based on two reports. Later this week, there may be more news to follow about variations etc. . We are still sorting and receiving reports.
We’re told it was one of the best retirement parties to date. Have a wonderful retirement George!
02/02/07 A ParkPennies visitor just listed two DL0003 60th’s and a DL0005 for auction in the United Kingdom. These auctions are linked on the Visitor Auctions Page.
01/31/07 Two linked auctions feature penny variations of seasonal nickels, DL0191 and Dl0192! Not something you see every day... cool! Pressed Penny Smiley
01/29/07 Boomer searched the park today and will again in a few days. No news out of the ordinary. We hope to hear something more about a new machine or two before long. Could be one of the regulars will be the first to spot the new machine? May be you’ll see a new name here? Boomer has been spending more time than usual looking around in New Orleans Square. (City Hall suggested a new machine may be placed there... eventually.)
01/24/07 Steve S. reported that the Bell walking, Ariel and Prince Eric and Sleeping Beauty from the Main Street Penny Arcade moved to a location in The Princess Fantasy Faire area. He was told by a Cast Member the move was made on the night of 01/23/07. Disneyland Penny Machine location pages are updated.
01/23/07 Boomer wondered through a beautiful, peaceful, uncrowded park offering 70 degree sunny weather... Had a chance to say hi to Jon G. from San Diego too! BUT NO new penny presses! Pressed Penny Sad Smiley
01/23/07 The auction of three Disneyland Tower of Terror error coins will close in a day or so. The current bids for these good roll zinc cents are currently at over $300.00 each. Could be a fun auction close to watch if you are near a PC around 2PM PST Wednesday. Auctions can be found via the Visitors’ Auction Page
Do check the Tokyo Disneyland page regularly for updates. Over the first 17 days of this month, 27 new coins had already been issued! We have pictures of most them linked already and most of them are also in the guides. Our favorite TDL’s are, as you may know, the Tokyo Disneyland Resort Coins of the Month.
01/22/07 Hope to have the DL guide updated soon. Until then, the new coin images and guide numbers are below.
The Disneyland Penny Machine Location pages are again up to date. Probably not for long, but, even if it’s only 15 minutes of fame...

01/20/07 I miss a day and what happens? Pressed Penny Smiley
Our thanks to John W. and Grandhobbies for sharing new.gif - 1087 Bytes machine locations late Friday. There are two new penny machines, both located next to the Toontown train station area. (Boomer still calls it Videopolis Pressed Penny Sad Smiley ) They were first on-stage Friday. Pictures and guides to follow.
John W. also reported that Disneyland City Hall has listed three more new penny machines as "Coming Soon". Two in the Pieces Of Eight Shop/Le Bat En Rouge area and one more near the Princess Fantasy Faire, Toontown Train Station area.
I hope to update the machine location pages early next week.



01/19/07 The usual Friday report will be delayed this week. Boomer called in sick. I don’t think he was faking it. After all, when your "job" is going to Disneyland to pressed coins, why call in sick? Pressed Penny Sad Smiley
Nothing serious. Should have his report Monday. Pressed Penny Smiley If you spot a new machine, you can share the news with fellow collectors via the ParkPennies Reports and Comments page.
01/17/07 Here is some excitement! A set of Disneyland Tower of Terror error coins were recently listed on eBay. (DN0031, DN0032 and DN0033). The three auctions are linked to and may be viewed from the Visitors’ Auction Page.
01/16/07 Several older Tokyo Disneyland issues were just listed via eBay auction. View them on the ParkPennies visitor auctions page.
01/13/07 Even more Tokyo Disneyland Resort coins were reported by Kuniaki Hiraki! Links to pictures of the 23 coins released over just the first 11 days of this year are on the Tokyo Disneyland News Page.
01/12/07 Recently Francis asked about the introduction of serial numbers on the face of newer Disneyland coin dies. He asked if Disneyland changed die manufactures, possibly as a result of the DR0099 Chip N Dale controversy.
We believe the current dies are still supplied by Eurolink Design, who has supplied dies and machines to Disneyland for nearly 20 years now. However, we are told, Mr. Jimmy Vargas, the noted Master Engraver, who had expertly engraved Disney dies for many years, may no longer be as involved. We feel it is this change that caused reader comments about the DR0099, the new "generic" images, the lack of fine detail, missing borders and now serial numbers on the latest coins. We are told serial numbers were previously hand engraved on the hidden ends of the dies. (We are told, earlier dies did not have engraved serial numbers.)
We are happy to post differing points of view from responsible parties. ( Or anything else we have to do to keep the lawyer letters to a minimum. Pressed Penny Sad Smiley )
01/12/07 A beautiful day! Sunny but a bit chilly in a park that was nearly empty this morning. Most rides were "walk-on’s"! We were able to quickly search the park looking in those nooks and crannies that held the promise of a possible new machine.
Although no new machines were found, we did find the Splash Mountain machine has been updated. It looks even better now; you can clearly see the penny falling down the waterfall. Very cool! It still offers the same coins and it worked perfectly! Now is a great time to press a set if you’ve missed them in the past. (The machine is located in the exit from the Splash Mountain attraction, behind the photo counter. There is also a new change machine right next to it!)
01/11/07 Separate reports from both Alan and Rus confirm that the Nightmare Before Christmas and the Seasonal Nickel Machines were off-stage Thursday, 01/11/07. They are believed to be retired.
01/11/07 ParkPennies is sending in two of our top scouts Friday. A Disneyland report is expected here late Friday.
Many excellent reports are submitted by ParkPennies readers. When you are the first to report a new coin or machine, we are happy to give you credit by name or eBay ID. Pressed Penny Smiley
01/10/2007 Still.. no new coins to report. Pressed Penny Sad Smiley
01/05/2007 No new coins to report.
01/03/07 A link to pictures of the 15 coins released at the Tokyo Disneyland Resort on January 1, 2007 is now up on the Tokyo Disneyland News Page.
01/03/07 new.gif - 1087 Bytes Three new coins at The Grand Californian Hotel. One Chip, one Dale and a new backstamp has been added to the DR0091! The DR0035 and DR0099 (finally) have been retired.
