Smashed Pennies and Nickels, Native, Variation, and Off-Denomination


Mickey Toontown smashed pennyMickey ToonTown Smashed NickelBoth smashed pennies and nickels are favorites of many collectors. However, smashed nickels are sometimes preferred by collectors because they are all solid metal, they are heavier, don't tarnish, and provide a larger canvas for a more detailed engraving. A fun collection of elongated nickels is the Disneyland Seasonal Smashed Nickels or if you want to go all out, you could collect all the smashed nickels of the Disneyland Resort.

Whatever your choice in collecting, if it includes nickels, the introduction of the DL0454-456 set is good news. The smashed penny set, DL0242-244, now has a backstamp and is the DL0454-456 smashed nickel set! Yes, for the first time in Disney history, a set of smashed pennies have been converted to smashed nickels! These are not the very hard to find "Off-denomination" coins that may have been used to compress a newly shimmed die, or a test roll coin used to proof a die engraving. These are native denomination coins from a machine that used to press pennies and as easy to pressed as the pennies that preceded them... plus, now they have backstamps! They do cost a bit more, usually 80 cents versus the previous price of 51 cents for a pressed penny. But, I think you'll agree, they are still one heck of a bargain for most any advanced collector of Disney pressed nickels!

Happy Collecting,
Boomer

DL0471-473 With "Disneyland Resort"

The three Pirates of the Caribbean pressed penny sets share the same obverses, with different reverses or backstamps as follows. The DL0416-418 set, 10/08/07 to 06/-/10, used the "Disneyland ® Resort" backstamp, the DL0468-470 set, 06/22/10 to 06/24/10, used the "Pirates of the Caribbean" backstamp (without "Disneyland ® Resort" subscript), and the DL0471-473 set, 6/25/10 to current, used the "Pirates of the Caribbean Disneyland ® Resort" backstamp.
The similar artwork was used by all coins in each set. However, each coin has a slightly different reverse image as each coin has a separate and slightly unique backstamp engraving.

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. :-)
