03/18/11 The Tokyo Disneyland Pressed Penny Medals Guides are now all up to date as of today.
03/12/11 We have received some good news from fellow collectors in Japan. So far all have said they and their families are safe, structures have had only minor damages. Transportation and power are issues. Kuniaki mentioned that: Tokyo Disneyland Resort will be closed until March 21. The ground rises or sinks in many places as a result of liquefaction around the Disneyland Resort and the neighborhood transportation station. TDR parking is in a particularly terrible state. Our thoughts and prayers are with all that have suffered from this terrible series of earthquakes.
03/06/11 Edited 03/10/11 As long time readers will remember, our Tokyo Disneyland news page is updated as news is received. Our Tokyo Disneyland Resort Pressed Penny Medal Guide Images are updated after we receive coins from Japan to scan. (Which as you can imagine, has become an increasingly costly and time consuming endeavor. However, we believe Kuniaki's web site and hard work deserve our recommendation rather than our duplication of the prized images he has generously offered us.) Currently pending guide coin images include TDL Plaza Restaurant's Lightning McQueen, Bolt, Roz, Boo, TDL Pan Galactic Pizza Port's Wall E, Eve, Peas in a Pod, Jessie and five Ambassador Hotel 10th Anniversary coins which should be added this month along with the March 2011 Coins of the Month etc.
If you are an anxious collector, as we are, Kuniaki Hiraki web site in Tokyo Japan offers new coin images, often the same day they arrive onstage. We greatly appreciate your comments, corrections, additions. We often reply directly when appropriate, if your email includes a reply address. Please feel free to contact us anytime.
03/01/11 Kuniaki, reports new Coins of the Month at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea!

Our thanks to you Kuniaki!
Readers may want to visit Kuniaki's excellent web site for more information about these brand new coins.

12/17/10 We've updated all Tokyo Disneyland Pressed Penny Guides. The Tokyo Disneyland Resort Pressed Pennies of the Month page is complete from the first coin of the month issued in 2005 to the most recent, December 2010 coins. All Tokyo Disneyland Resort coins from 1996 to the most recent December 2010 coins are also listed in the 2010 Tokyo Disneyland Resort Pressed Penny Guides. How time flies, Tokyo Disneyland is one of the "new" guides here and we've been listing coins in it for 15 years now! Happy collecting, Boomer.
11/09/10 Christmas has arrived... at Tokyo Disneyland! Several Tokyo Disneyland " pressed pennies" already issued in November have Christmas greetings on them. No word yet on any "Seasonal" nickels at Disneyland USA. However, 2010 Tokyo Disneyland Christmas souvenir medals can be purchased via eBay etc. Happy Collecting, Boomer.
10/26/10
Coins of the Month for October have been added to the 2010 Tokyo Disneyland guide.
10/18/10
(Update: added latest two Tokyo Disneyland penny books ) These books have been really popular, even with the current Tokyo Books now selling in Japan for 1290 Yen and 1590 Yen. (About $15.92 and $19.62 each!) Collectors in the United States will most likely need to add postage and a monetary token of their appreciation to the price for the kind sole who paid for transportation and admission to Tokyo Disneyland, and then purchased and shipped the books all on his own time... Price aside, they are excellent quality books often with astonishing graphics, a must for Tokyo Disneyland collectors in my opinion.
The great news for collectors in the United States is that most of all our current penny books are under $10.00, sometimes way under $10.00. Matter of fact, there are several types at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Also an excellent selection of non-Disney Penny Collector Books, many with exclusive elongated coins in their covers, offered by our good friends, PennyCollector.com and at their many penny press machine locations. Do take a look, they might be a fun addition to your pressed penny collections.
09/11/10
We've updated the Tokyo Disneyland 2010 Pressed Penny Guide. Several new coins were added as well as two new TDR 2011 calendars that feature exclusive "pressed pennies".

07/02/10 Another first day Tokyo Disneyland report from our good friend Kuniaki Hiraki in Japan... with pictures! Although the store coins have only line art two-dimensional images, the park coins are most all extremely nice, 3-D original art and well themed. These July 2010 Tokyo Disneyland "pressed penny" images are well worth a look even if you do not collect Tokyo Disneyland souvenir medals. Kuniaki's report:

07/10/10 MORE than 40 new coins released at the Tokyo Disneyland Resort! Pictures and guide entries to follow as soon as we have samples to scan. Happy collecting!
06/1/10 As you can see, the Tokyo Disneyland Resort has gone "pressed penny" crazy! Now that the new issues are in 100's per year, the extensive coverage of all coins we have offered since 1996, isn't practical any longer. However, we will try to continue our guides with a "manageable" number of pages, images, brief descriptions, and guide numbers as shown on our Tokyo Disneyland Resort pressed penny guide for 2010.
We encourage all visitors to also visit Kuniaki Hiraki's excellent web site. He is an avid collector located in Japan and offers wonderful coin reports for both the Tokyo Disneyland Resort and the Disney Stores in Japan.
Happy collecting,
Boomer and the folks at ParkPennies.com
05/17/10 We are updating the 2010 Tokyo Pressed Penny Guides as new coins arrive. Tokyo Disneyland is now issuing 100's of new coins a year! Do also check Kuniaki Hiraki's web site for his latest finds.

Wow! And I was excited about a set of three Cast Member coins at Disneyland Anaheim?!
Kuniaki has a wonderful web site with pictures of these coins. We will be updating our guides as soon as we can obtain these coins.
03/06/10 Recent 2010 updates are here! You may have noticed we are also updating the format . DL Guides will be first, then... I wish they would have offered MYSQL or PHP when I went to school instead of FORTRAN, COBAL, or how to make vinyl records! But, sadly no. So, no need to worry, the new pages will retain that "classic, nostalgic web page look". sad penny
02/01/10 As long time readers will know, over the past year or two, we have been most thankful for the help of Kuniaki Hiraki in Tokyo Japan. He has in the best sprit of the hobby, generously shared his excellent knowledge, pictures, and news about Disney pressed souvenirs in Japan with us. Kuniaki also developed an excellent web site of both Tokyo Disneyland Resort and Disney Store Japan coins which I have mentioned often in this forum. Of special interest to ParkPennies.com readers, because of recent Google translation software changes, I have been able to fumble together a simple, very effective link to an English translation of Kuniaki's excellent web site. With this link, at last, English speaking ParkPennies.com visitors can get the latest information directly from Kuniaki Japanese language web site, in Japan. I urge ParkPennies.com visitors to visit Kuniaki's excellent web site to get the latest pictures and locations of newest Disney "pressed pennies" in Japan.

It has been fun, but, also a very daunting challenge for this non-Japanese speaking penny collector in the USA to keep the Tokyo Disneyland Guides up to date over the past 15 years. Our guides were possible only via the help of fellow collectors, tons of research, and especially the help of a very good friend in Tokyo who has pressed TDR coins for us for nearly 15 years now. The resulting cataloging of prototypes, off-planchet metals, books, holders, etc. distant by thousands of miles, was sometimes stressful and challenging, but, always fun and rewarding. Over the next years, we look forward to concentrating on the fun stuff. We'll be refining and improving our references covering the first 15 years of Tokyo Disneyland "pressed pennies". We will also be adding more in depth details, stories, and related information we have gathered over the past 15+ years. So, please check the TDR Pressed Penny Guides often.
01/03/10 All Tokyo Disneyland guides are now up to date as of 12/31/09, all Tokyo Disneyland "pressed pennies" issued up to and through the 25th Anniversary of the park.
01/01/10 Kuniaki reports 18 NEW COINS at Tokyo Disneyland! See them at Kuniaki's excellent web site. We have also added them to the last Tokyo Disneyland Monthly update page here at ParkPennies.com.

Kuniaki has generously shared images of these new November Tokyo "pressed pennies".
11/06/08 A total of 23 new Tokyo Disneyland pressed medals will have been issued just this November by 11/09/08! We hear from the our friends in Japan that there will be six more new coins just at the Hotel MiraCosta. Scans and guide updates will follow.
11/04/08 Our thanks to Mr. C. Neal, the well known Disney elongated coin collector, for reporting his discovery of three Tokyo Disneyland Resort Rainforest Cafe medals! The Tokyo Disneyland style souvenir medallions or "pressed pennies" were vended from a three play machine found at the RFC in the Tokyo Disneyland Resort Ikspiari Complex. Images, numbers and descriptions have been added to the Tokyo Disneyland Resort guide. The Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo DisneySea and Coins of the Month guides have also been brought up to date thanks to Mr. Neal's help.

Kuniaki has also generously shared images of these new November Tokyo "pressed pennies".

11/01/08 Tokyo coins of the month and a few more were issued today. We'll have scans and guide updates as the coins arrive here from Japan. Also, because a good share of the ParkPennies.com Tokyo Disneyland Guide visitors speak Japanese, we've added a very poor attempt at a Japanese translation of our Disney Souvenir medals guide introduction ディズニー スーベニアメダル. I know, you are thinking "Why Japanese? You haven't even gotten the English right yet!". I'm thinking the same thing! penny smile
10/14/08 Coins of the Month and all other coins to date, have been added to the Tokyo Guides. Nice engraving!



10/04/08 Lots of updates and adds to the Tokyo Disneyland Guides lately. Most recently, four new coins were added to the Tokyo Disneyland "Pressed Penny" Guide and the Tokyo DisneySEA "Pressed Penny" Guide.
10/02/08 Japanese collectors are reporting that the recently placed October coins of the month are rolling short and a bit off-center. However, the machines were greeted as usual by LOTS of Japanese collectors. The Coins of the Month series seems to gain in popularity each year. You can see how each penny press machine offering Tokyo Disneyland "Pressed Pennies" of the month and Tokyo DisneySEA "Pressed Pennies" of the month has an individual style of coin each year, making a series of yearly collection sets. We lament that Disney parks in the USA do not offer a coin of the month yet, but, we have not given up hope. Smile!
10/02/08 New Mickey Mouse pressed penny holders! (Last entry on the linked page.)
10/01/08 Kuniaki, owner of the excellent Kuniaki TDL web site, reports MORE Tokyo Disneyland Medals!

09/23/08 Tokyo Disneyland pressed penny guides have been updated. Do check them out when you have a chance, there are some cool new coins. And... we'll have another update later this month! Tokyo Disney has been rolling out new coins like never before. And no, I don't know why it seems Tokyo Disneyland has better quality engraving every year. If I didn't see it with my own eyes, I wouldn't believe it. Especially when WDW and Disneyland Anaheim seem to be going the other direction. Emails to ParkPennies.com suggest that Tokyo Disney found a new company to engrave their penny press dies. What ever they did, it seems to be working. Here are some recent Tokyo Disney "pressed penny" engraving samples.
09/14/08 Kuniaki, owner of the excellent Kuniaki TDL web site, reports MORE Tokyo Disneyland Medals!
Five new design medals were released on September 12, 2008 at TDR

07/03/08 Tokyo Disneyland Resort new coin report!
The engraving on several of these coins features excellent, three-dimensional, hand engraved quality. Do take a look at the pictures sent by Kuniaki. (It's no secret that United States Disney Resort guests have contacted ParkPennies.com over the past couple of years with concerns over the recent changes in the quality of elongated coin souvenirs. Here is evidence that high quality, nicely engraved dies / coins can be made today as they were in the past.)

06/17/08 With Monday's mail, we once again caught up with visitor free pressed coin requests and look forward to more.

05/07/08
Still a few typos, but, we have uploaded the Tokyo Disneyland 25th Anniversary Collection Guide and updated the Tokyo Disneyland Coins of the Month. Several other Tokyo Disneyland guide pages have also been updated. However, we are already behind! Three more coins of the month were issued on 5/1/08!
05/05/08 Lots of " Free pressed pennies" were sent out today. So, if you sent in your SASE this last week, the wait is almost over. It was great to see several requests from fellow members of The Elongated Collectors included. If you are reading this page, you should really look into becoming a member of TEC if you aren't already!
Also, recently three new coins of the month were issued at Tokyo Disneyland. We are swamped, but, should have a major Tokyo Disneyland Guide Update soon.
05/01/08 Hard to believe we've been at www.ParkPennies.com for four years already! Some long time readers will remember the very small personal web site we started a few years earlier too. However, by far, the most exciting changes over the past six or seven years (at least for us) is that you have visited and shared this reference site with your friends and fellow Disneyana fans.
The record breaking use of ParkPennies.com, as measured by your links to this site, web site "hits" and your visits, has not only made our day, but, it has also motivated us to offer even more and better Disneyland pressed penny collector content. (And to use a spell checker more often!)
Thank you all very much for visiting our home-grown hobbyist site, sharing this wonderful hobby with us, and telling your friends about ParkPennies.com. Happy Collecting! From Boomer and the folks at ParkPennies.
04/26/08 No reports of new Tokyo Disneyland coins for five days in a row! I wonder what the heck happened? crazy penny Looks like all of the 25th Anniversary coins might be on stage now. The coins featuring the "25th" logo have settled at 39 so far. Many collectors have noticed that the anniversary set, Tokyo Disneyland Coins of the month, and all other TDR coins recently issued have been pressed on copper planchets. I have not seen a nickel colored coin from Tokyo Disneyland for some time now.
Both sets make for excellent collections. Maybe the coin of the month series will catch on in the US as the anniversary sets have in Japan? We expect the latest coins to arrive shortly. Once scanned, we will add them to the guides. This month's TDR updates will total more than 50 coins!
04/21/08 Yep. Another penny at Tokyo Disneyland! As is usual for TDR, this new 2008 Spring Carnival "pressed penny" is a beauty. Our thanks to Kuniaki in Japan for his report an picture.
04/01/08 MORE Tokyo Disneyland Medals! Lots more!

4/13/08 Per your emails, some Tokyo Disneyland issues are currently offered on eBay and GrandHobbies Disneyland pressed penny sales has recently added Tokyo Disneyland issues to their Disneyland USA offerings. Also, some online Yahoo email groups have active pressed penny trading.
We are always happy to consider additional sources for a free plug here. Just contact us.
4/13/08 Another day another report of... Even more coins at Tokyo Disneyland by Hideo in Japan! Most of these new issues appear to be part of a Tokyo Disneyland 25th Anniversary set. They remind me of the Disneyland 50th Anniversary Magical Milestones set or maybe the 25th Anniversary set offered at Walt Disney World. Could be a very neat set. The engraving and artwork seem to be very nice. We hope to have images for you soon.
4/12/08 A good friend tells us that there are as of today, about 36 more new coins at Tokyo Disneyland! We hope to have pictures of them soon.
Some readers have mentioned that these coins have been hard to find. Tell me about it! wall smiley   Limited order sizes, shipping, postage, and availability have made these coins a formidable challenge recently.

New design "Donald" medal was released at the TDL Penny Arcade Mar. 15, 2008.
Thank you,
Kuniaki Hiraki in Tokyo Japan
Kuniaki also sent a picture of the new Tokyo Disney souvenir pressed coin to share with ParkPennies.com readers.

We are very thankful for these reports from Kuniaki Hiraki in Japan. The Tokyo Disneyland pressed pennies or medals have become increasingly difficult to acquire, especially for collectors in the United States. As you may have noticed, the long time suppliers that offered the coins on eBay and via subscription lists are not offering the coins as regularly as in past years. The costs of purchase, currency devaluation, shipping and related risks have made it difficult for dealers to resell the coins at a price comparable to past offerings.
Even though availability and costs of acquisition are challenging, we are still acquiring these coins for display in the ParkPennies.com guides knowing that coins that are hard to acquire often become the keys to a collection over time.
03/02/08 Our thanks to Kuniaki in Japan for this excellent report and pictures!

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.
12/10/07 Please note we have consolidated news to the main pressed penny news page. (It's a good page to bookmark.) Specialized Tokyo Disneyland news will of course, still be located here.
12/10/07 Due to our error in posting, TDL News page readers, may send for a free ParkPennies.com coin through 12/17/07. Details posted below at 11/27/07. Happy Collecting, Boomer.

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.

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

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. Happy collecting.
