2/18/18 Wow! 2018 is our 20th "online" anniversary! Hard to believe that it all started way back in the last century! :-). In 1998, we shared the first Disneyland pressed coin spreadsheet (compiled by a group of avid collectors) on a tiny 5meg public web address that later became "ParkPennies.com". This 20th Anniversary is a great time to thank you all again for your continued support. Your visits, your sharing of the hobby and ParkPennies with your friends via social media postings, links, shares, likes... It's how the world finds our modest non-commercial site and often how new collectors are welcomed into this wonderful hobby. (Not to mention that your interest in ParkPennies makes our day and motivates us to do even better! :-) We also want to thank the many collectors, Cast Members, industry-related people, and park guests who over the years have helped with new machine reports, images, content, corrections, suggestions... We couldn't have done it without you. Like our mission statement says above: "ParkPennies.com is by elongated coin collectors and for elongated coin collectors, sharing and promoting this wonderful hobby and preserving its history. ParkPennies has nothing for sale, is a non-commercial and ad-free hobbyist reference site based on our enjoyment of the Disney pressed penny collecting hobby since 1988, our online posts since 1997, and most importantly, the contributions by fellow collectors over the decades.

PS Sorry, no free car giveaway for our 20th. But, we do have a Free Penny Machine Locations page! :-)

2/18/18 Boomer has added a few guide updates recently. The Disneyland Shop Pressed Coin Guide now has images of the 2017 Electro Mechanical and the Building & Facades Christmas elongated tokens. The Cast Member Cars Land "A Penny For Your Thoughts" pressed penny set was also added recently. A few more pages were made more "mobile responsive". Also the Disneyland Pressed Coin Guide and the Disney California Adventure Pressed Coin guide were completed with the addition of images and descriptions for the coins that were issued this week. Happy Collecting, Boomer.

The Disneyland 2018 Yearly pressed nickel set, DL0681, DL0682, and DL0683 marquee as of 2-15-20182/15/2018 New Pressed Pennies! Our thanks to Shawn P. and Laurence R. for reporting TWO NEW NICKEL MACHINES at DISNEYLAND! They are both the latest in the continuing "Yearly" pressed nickel collection. The Disney California Adventure 2018 nickel set is located at the south door, with a very cool backstamp, in the same machine that had the 2017 nickel set. The Disneyland Park 2018 "Yearly" pressed nickel set is located at the exit to the Main Street Opera (Lincoln) in the same location as the 2017 Yearly set. The machines were pressing great. Oh, the Finding Dory set is also back on stage at Kingswell Camera after switching back from the Holiday Nickels. We've, that is the extensive highly trained ParkPennies.com staff, er ah, just me, Boomer currently :-), has already updated the The Penny Machine Locations page and will add pictures and descriptions to the Disneyland Pressed Coin Guide and the The Disney California Adventure 2018 Yearly pressed nickel set, CA0247, CA0248 and CA0249 marquee as of 2-15-2018Disney California Adventure Pressed Coin guide soon. Happy Collecting! Boomer.

2/13/18 Our thanks to Dee D. who just shared a PDF listing of DLRP Medallions from www.PassionDLRP.com. Dee adds that "Although this does not tell the whole story, what with many different reverses, this pic has all the "medailles" issued to date." I think both this PDF and the web site will be a great help to DLRP Medallion Collectors. Please see the ParkPennies Disneyland Resort Paris News Page for a collection of all DLRP updates and the ParkPennies DLRP pressed coin guides for all past and present DLRP pressed coins. Happy collecting, Boomer.

2/04/18 New Pressed Pennies!Kuniaki Hiraki just reported... Yes! More just released Tokyo Disneyland pressed coins! I would, if I still had it, lose my sanity just trying to keep track of all the new coins issued at the Tokyo Disneyland Resort! Thank goodness Kuniaki has mastered the art of finding every new coin. As proof he writes to share his knowledge : "Hello, The monthly medals were released on February 01, 2018.

ParkPennies' Pressed Coin Menu

1/28/18 Maybe of interest? We recently refreshed y-our incredibly beautiful, indispensable, free and worth every penny, work of art and compendium of knowledge... too much? :-) Okay, the boring drop-down menu at the top of the page. :-) It now has more stuff, it's more organized, we corrected a few errors and probably added a bunch more! :-) A copy of the finished product is adjacent to this post and... at the top of most ParkPennies pages. Do check it out maybe you'll see an article, guide or collection of interest. If you think of something that is missing or you'd like something added to make navigating better, please let us know. Happy collecting, Boomer.

1/24/18 Our thanks to Mark S. for his help in updating the Machine Locations Page, especially DCA and reporting that the Splash Mountain machine is inaccessible, hopefully it will be relocated. Also, two seasonal machines were taken offstage today. The Disney California Adventure Holiday nickel machine and the Disney California Adventure 2017 Yearly nickel machine. Could be 2018 Yearly nickel sets are planned. The Penny Machine Locations page has been updated again. :-) Do let Boomer know if you spot a new machine. Happy collecting! Boomer.

1/23/18 Our thanks to Jennifer, several ParkPennies readers and FB friends for reporting that the Disneyland Holiday nickel machine is off-stage. I had hoped it was temporary, the last report had the DCA machine still onstage. But, I guess we must resign to the fact it's gone... probably until the next Holiday Celebration. The Penny Machine Locations page has been updated. Of interest, we are hearing rumors from trusted sources that yearly nickel sets are planned again for early 2018. These cool sets have become an awesome collection on their own... I can't wait to press a set! :-) Oh... The Electric Light Parade pressed penny machine is back at the Main Street Penny Arcade. Happy collecting, Boomer.

1/16/18 Our thanks to Randy K. for reporting that the "Tropicana" coin press is offstage. Randy heard from the store clerk that the machine will return with 2018 designs. The Penny Machine Locations page has been updated.

1/16/18 New Pressed Pennies! Kuniaki Hiraki's I can't believe it's already been more than a week since the last batch of new Tokyo Disneyland coins! So, here's Kuniaki's report of this week's new coins (so far)!!! Kuniaki writes: " Hello, ANNA & Elsa’s Frozen Fantasy & Pixar Play Time medals were released on January 9th, 2018. TDL1815 TDL Penny Arcade --- Anna & Elsa, TDL1816-18 TDL Tomorrowland Terrace --- Anna, Elsa, Olaf, TDS1605 TDS TDS Steamboat Mickey's --- Lightning McQueen, TDS1606 TDS Il Postino Stationery --- Mike, TDS1607 TDS Expedition Photo Archives --- Nemo, TDS1608 TDS Villa Donald Home Shop --- Woody.

If of interest, here is a link to the ParkPennies.com news page of only Tokyo Disneyland Pressed Penny News. Happy collecting, Boomer.

1/15/18 I also noticed the 2017 nickel set located at the Lincoln exit was taken offstage probably sometime early today. I hope to have the guides and locations pages updated soon. We've had a bit of a software "challenge" recently. But, everything seems good now. Happy collecting! Boomer.

2018 Haunted Mansion quarter press set, DL0678, DL0679, and DL0680 on 1/13/20181/15/18 New Pressed Pennies!One of the TOP questions we get here are about the Haunted Mansion Pressed Quarter sets. Our thanks to Eddie, Mike, and Ricky for sharing some great news about that long missed machine. It's back at Port Royal Curios & Curiosities! And it's offering the high quality DL0518, DL0519, and DL0520 / DL0525, DL0526, DL0527 Haunted Mansion pressed quarters including their original and the only high-relief "3D" pressed coin backstamps ever offered at any Disney Resort... in a new combination. With the addition of these three coins, the DL0678, DL0679, and DL0680, a nine coin Haunted Mansion set has been made. The set features each of the three pressed quarters paired with each of the excellent three high-relief, "3D" ghost backstamps, Ezra, Phineas, and Gus. ParkPennies' extensive staff, (me :-), is working on a page that will feature this cool nine coin set. I er... ah, I mean the extensive ParkPennies' staff, hopes to have the page completed in the next few days as well as the related Disneyland Park Pressed Coin Guide entries for these new coins. The Penny Machine Locations page has been updated already. Happy collecting! Boomer. PS. Yes, that is a spider sliding down the marquee on this cool new video and sound coin press machine! See also: The Haunted Mansion Hitchhiking Ghosts Pressed Coins.

1/12/18 Our thanks to Randy K. for spotting an error in the description of a Disneyland Resort pressed coin. A tree image was described as a Sequoia. However, the engraving, upon close examination, appears to be a Redwood. We will be updating these Disneyland Resort USA references today. (Disneyland Paris Sequoia Hotel etc. should remain unchanged.)
Other news... Welcome reports from several ParkPennies visitors mentioned the changes in Disney California Adventure's Paradise Pier that were effective January 8, 2018. Because of the transformation into a Pixar themed area, two pressed coin machines have been removed from stage / are inaccessible. They are / were located at Treasures in Paradise Gift Shop (CA0177-0179 Duffy the Disney Bear / Mickey Band leader set) and Sideshow Shirts Gift Shop (CA0214-0216 Lilo and Stitch set). At this time, we are not certain the machines will return. So, for now, they are listed only as "offstage" in the recently updated ParkPennies Penny Machine Locations page. Maybe we'll see new pressed coins for the opening of Pixar Pier!? Happy collecting, Boomer.

2017 DCA Holiday Nickel Set Marquee 12/21/1712/21/17 New Pressed Pennies! THE 2017 DISNEY CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE Holiday Nickels are onstage! I just returned from DLR. I'm told the nickel press was just installed today. It's working great. The Penny Machine Locations should be updated tonight and I'll have the ParkPennies Disney California Adventure Guide pictures and descriptions up soon. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Boomer.

2017 Disneyland Holiday pressed nickel coin press machine on 12-15-201712/15/17 New Pressed Pennies! THE 2017 DISNEYLAND HOLIDAY NICKEL SET is onstage at the Main Street Penny Arcade! The machine is a beauty... video, sound... pictures to follow. My thanks to Stephen, Ryan and the excellent Disneyland Cast Members at the Penny Arcade who made sure this new three-play nickel press was working great. We think the machine was installed overnight, it was waiting for guests when the park opened today at 8:30. Our thanks and credit for being the first to report this new machine goes to Steve, Stephen M. Based on past years, we anticipate that the Disney California Holiday pressed nickel set will be placed onstage in days. The Penny Machine Locations has been updated and the Disneyland Park Pressed Coin Guide will be updated soon. Happy collecting! Boomer.

The Pressed Coins at Disneyland Android Phone App image12/05/17 Lots of updates to this cool Android phone app. It's great for locating Disneyland Resort pressed coins and keeping track of them. The reviews have been great too. So please do check out The Pressed Coins at Disneyland app. Now available at the Google Play Store for free and requires only a single permission for map location. We also have a permanent link to the app on the Penny Machine Locations page. Happy Collecting, Boomer.

12/03/17 We are very sad to report the passing of Rob McHargue, Master Candy Maker at the Disneyland Resort, on December 2, 2017. Many of us will remember the excellent candy that Rob made for more than 40 years. You may also recall Rob going out of his way to make memories for fans of all ages. Needless to say, watching The Master's candy magic and enjoying the treats he made, some of which Rob invented himself, became a treasured tradition for many lucky park visitors. I know countless Disneyland guests will think of him for years to come especially when walking by the Main Street Candy Kitchen or sampling one of his trademark confections. We hope you too will keep Rob and his family in your thoughts and prayers. He is missed.

11/27/17 It's been way too long since our last post. But, rest assured that lots of fellow collectors are searching the Disneyland Resort looking for new pressed coin machines and we expect to share news of the 2017 Holiday nickel sets soon. While we're all waiting for a new machine... Do take a look at some of the currently more than 300 cool eBay auctions by fellow ParkPennies visitors. Maybe you'll spot a coin you're looking for? Happy Collecting, Boomer.

11/10/17 Our thanks to Alex D., Stephen M., Randy K., Mike R., Stasi and David S. for reporting that the Bonanza Outfitters penny press machine DL0480, DL0481, and DL0482 is offstage. Based on the time of the first report, the machine has been offstage long enough that we've marked it offstage on the Penny Machine Locations page. We're thinking that the machine might be offstage for new coin designs? Check this page for posts of any news we hear. Do tell Boomer if you spot the machine first. Happy collecting! Boomer.

11/05/17 New Pressed Pennies!Kuniaki Hiraki never rests! He reported some MORE NEW Tokyo Disneyland pressed coins! Kuniaki writes: "Hello, Monthly medals were released on Nov. 01, 2017.

11/04/17 Because of the latest nickel set released just last Thursday, we've gotten a lot of emails about pressed nickels! Like "Why are pressed nickels only offered by the Disneyland Resort, Anaheim? or "Why can't we find any pressed nickel machines at.. er... a well-known theme park in Fl°o°rida?" Or "Why does that other Southern California theme park Knott have any nickel press machines?". :-) So, I thought the subject worthy of a post here.
A long time Cast Member, now retired for nearly two decades, once told me that the coin press machines were not just for profit or to draw foot traffic, they are meant to be part of "The Show", making fun experiences and memories for Disneyland guests. What he said must be true. As long time collectors will remember, Disney pressed coins were first introduced to the world back in 1987 and pressed nickels in 1995, pressed coin backstamps in 2004... all by the imaginative / innovative Cast Members of the Disneyland Resort. (Some theme parks that use only outside vendors. But, DLR owned machines benefit from on-site Disneyland Cast Members.) The coin presses have indeed made profits, generated foot traffic, and provided fun "shows" for Disneyland Resort guests for more than 30 years now! But of all the Disneyland pressed coin innovations, nickels have been extra-popular. Matter of fact, these silver-colored treasures have become the exclusive collecting focus of some guests. Even some pressed penny jewelry has been made with silver. After all, there are the very popular Yearly Holiday Nickel Sets that have been a Disneyland tradition dating back to 1995, the year-long nickel sets first introduced in 2014, plus sets like the latest Princess pressed nickel set in Downtown Disney... For many families, elongated coins make for a fun Disney collectable, another reason to visit the park on the Holidays. Not just because five cent pieces make a high quality, thick, heavy, "silver-colored" pressed coin souvenir... But because these exceptionally collectable backstamped pressed nickel sets are also examples of the imagination and dedication that the Disneyland Resort Cast Members have demonstrated over and over... Sorry, I digress. :-) Why are Disney pressed nickels only at Disneyland, and no other parks? Maybe because they are special like Disneyland, and no other park. ;-) Happy collecting, Boomer. Edited for readability 11/04/17 p.m. Not that it's that much better. :-)

11/03/17 Often people ask us where / how they can purchase Disneyland pressed coins, especially hard to find ones. As you know, ParkPennies.com is strictly a free hobbyist reference web site with nothing for sale, no ads or pay wall... But, we do offer free links from ParkPennies.com to fellow ParkPennies Visitors' eBay auctions. If you have an eBay auction of a Disneyland pressed coin or if you are looking for a Disneyland pressed coin, ParkPennies courtesy Visitor's eBay links of Disneyland pressed coins may be just what you're looking for. PS: Here is how to add your auctions to the ParkPennies list for free. Happy collecting, Boomer.

Click to open the DR Disneyland Resort Hotels and Downtown Disney pressed coin guide11/02/17 New Pressed Pennies! Our thanks to Mike R. for reporting the return of the DR0192, DR0193, and DR0194 video and sound Princess penny press... as a nickel press today! Yes, Disney did a quick upgrade into a cool nickel press. The elongated nickel coins are heavier, thicker, nickel color and have images and backstamps that fit perfectly. The nickel coin costs 75 cents each plus the nickel to be smashed (The penny press version cost 50 cents plus the penny to be pressed.) I think most guests and collectors will really like these coins. We'll have pictures and descriptions in the DR Disneyland Resort Hotels and Downtown Disney Guide soon. The Penny Machine Locations page has been updated already. Happy collecting! Boomer. 10/03/17: (Please excuse the poor quality picture. It is the best we could do at the time and wanted to share.

10/29/17 New Pressed Pennies!Kuniaki Hiraki just reported even MORE Tokyo Disneyland pressed coins news! Kuniaki writes: "Hello, Two medals increased at each resort Line station on October 18, 2017.

10/26/17 A new Downtown Disney coin press machine was reported onstage today... a report that was at first doubted by some. :-) However, a consensus of confusion has concluded :-) that a new coin press machine was indeed placed onstage today and then possibly taken offstage for adjustment? Please check back for updates.
From trusted sources: A new machine was jammed today. Soon after, while the guest was still in the park, a Disneyland Arcade Tech cleared the machine and the delighted guest pressed some coins. Then later this afternoon the machine was reportedly taken offstage. Boomer believes the machine is *possibly* temporarily offstage for adjustment and may return soon. The Penny Machine Locations page is already updated. Happy collecting, Boomer.
ADDED 10/28/17: Thank you to the collectors that asked why the hand-crank machine across D Street near Wetzel's Pretzels hasn't been repaired. We know that the hand-crank machine, DR0139-142, has had out of order sign. However, it is a machine that is not serviced by Disneyland Resort. Near by locations are well aware of the situation. I was told by a frustrated Cast Member that the machine is from an "outside vendor" and that she can work no magic with that machine.
ADDED 10/29/17: The coins offered by this new machine are three Princess pressed pennies: Snow White, Cinderella, and Ariel all with a new first onstage backstamp"Disney Princess Disneyland Resort". We hope to add images of coins pressed by a guest on 10/26/17 soon. A Cast Member has stated that the machine should return later this week. Please bookmark this page for updates and Happy Collecting! Boomer.

Cars Land penny press machine marquee 10/23/1710/24/17 New Pressed Pennies! Our thanks to Mike R. for reporting a new penny press machine was placed 10/23/17 in Cars Land, Disney California Adventure at Ramone's House of Body Art on Route 66. The machine offers the same dies that were retired on Buena Vista Street, the CA0147, CA0148, and CA0149 with a new location appropriate backstamp, a Cars Land Logo. Stay tuned to ParkPennies.com we hear rumors of yet another new Disneyland Resort machine soon and will post it here. If you get a chance, please do say thanks to the good folks that keep the DLR coin presses on stage and updated. It was 108 degrees when this machine was placed onstage 10/23/17! I'm told one Cast Member still took the time to tell a collector (Mike R.) that there are plans for another machine possibly later this week. Happy collecting, Boomer.

10/20/17 More proposed legislation to end the penny, nickel... Good reading if you can't sleep or if you are in the penny press business and want something to keep you awake at night. :-( It appears movement in this direction is getting more and more backers and acceptance. I'm starting to think that token and quarter machines may one day save the hobby?

6/27/2017 Greg K. just sent a most welcome message to Parkpennies.com. Greg writes: "Just got back from Disneyland Paris (6/26/17). The info you had on the "medallions" helped a lot. Just an update ... 8 of the coins / medallions are now at the Stroller Rental. The other 2 are at the Santa Fe Hotel and Star Trader (the shop outside Star Tours). There are a few machines in the "Arcades" along side Main Street, but not all of them (so the Stroller Rental is easier). There are no medallions at Disney Studios." Our thanks to Greg for this update. Please see the ParkPennies Disneyland Resort Paris News Page for a collection of all DLRP updates and the ParkPennies DLRP pressed coin guides for all past and present DLRP pressed coins. Happy collecting, Boomer.

The Main Street Electrical Parade pressed penny machine marquee sign 6-22-20176/22/17 New Pressed Pennies! Our thanks to Mike R. for "Contacting Boomer" today while Boomer was, as Disneyland Security might say, "loitering" at the Corner Cafe, Disneyland. :-) Mike reported that a penny press machine was being installed at the Main Street Penny Arcade, just steps away! Boomer was on the scene in no time pressing coins and taking pictures! These new Main Street Electrical Parade pressed coins are are nice. But, the backstamps make them really nice! What a great souvenir of your visit to the park, for only 51 cents! But, wait, there's more! Just on the other side of Main Street is the new 2017 Main Street Treats pressed nickel set. Today, you can get them both... on the same visit! :-)

The Penny Machine Locations page has been updated. Happy collecting, Boomer.

5/27/17 Eddie V. contacted Boomer to let us all know that... The new coin press at the Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! gift shop, also known as The Collector's Warehouse Gift Shop, is now open to all guests. (That can fit in.:-) Anastasia and David S. heard that the line for the ride was up to four hours long this morning. (As I write this, the line is down to only three hours!) This is what happens when there is a new coin press at DLR! :-) We hope to have pictures of the machine, marquee and coins added to the guides soon. The Penny Machine Locations page is already up to date. Happy collecting, Boomer. It's going to be a great summer to collect Disneyland Resort pressed coins!

Kuniaki writes: "Hello, The monthly medal moved to TDS Nautilus Gifts from TDS Galleria Disney on May 08, 2017. Stella Low medals were released on May 15, 2017. TDS1733-1735 TDS Galleria Disney -- Duffy, Stella Lou, Gelatoni. TDS1736-1738 TDS Aunt Peg's Village Store -- Shellie May, Stella Lou, Duffy. Thank you, Kuniaki Hiraki in Tokyo Japan." For pictures of these new coins, please visit Kuniaki Hiraki's excellent web site. Happy collecting, Boomer.

5/02/17 New Pressed Pennies! What would we do without Kuniaki Hiraki's excellent reports and web site? Kuniaki reports MORE new coins have placed onstage at The Tokyo Disneyland Resort. "Hello, 2017 May Monthly medals were released on May 01, 2017: TDL1737 TDL Penny Arcade ---- Pluto. TDL1738 TDL Tomorrowland Terrace --- Morty & Ferdy.

Thank you, Kuniaki Hiraki in Tokyo Japan" To see pictures of these coins, please visit Kuniaki Hiraki's excellent web site. Happy collecting, Boomer.

4/28/17 Today, with great sadness, I received a call from a long time friend and Cast Member, now retired. He shared with me that George Meyer known to Disneyland elongated coin collectors for his work in the Disneyland Arcade Shop, had passed away on April 22, 2017. As long time readers of ParkPennies will recall, George retired from Disneyland in 2007, his retirement included an elongated coin in his likeness and many kind words from fellow Cast Members. The kind words and positive stories of the years George spent with friends at the Disneyland Resort continue today and are a testament to how much he was liked and is missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones.

4/27/17 Our thanks to Kim C. for sending a current image of the Castle Gate Penny Press Marquee and correctly reporting that the ParkPennies Penny Machine Locations page only lists one of the three coins offered at that location. In future updates, to help in collecting Disneyland Resort area pressed coins, we will strive to also include the machine companion coins of guide-listed Disneyland themed coins. (In the past, we limited listings to include only coins that "reference" Disneyland / are included in the ParkPennies pressed coin guides and did not include companion coins in that same machine.)

pressed token 4/26/17 Looks like there is yet another attempt to change our change! ParkPennies believes there is a good chance one of these Bills to replace / modify US coinage will succeed and that passage of such a bill will have a major impact on coin press machines. The latest bill tries once again to replace US coins with a less expensive material. This time replacing pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters with steel lookalikes. Here is a link to a PDF of Bill HR2067 (PDF) which states in part: "To amend title 31, United States Code, to save the American taxpayers money by immediately altering the metallic composition of the one-cent, five-cent, dime, and quarter dollar coins, and for other purposes." "IN GENERAL.—Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the one-cent, five-cent, dime, and quarter dollar coins produced for circulation and issue shall— ‘‘(A) be produced primarily of steel...". Steel coins don't press well.... Could be that token presses will be the future, maybe the not too distant future. Thankfully, Disneyland has had already tested some excellent token press machines that offer both a nice pressed souvenir as well as a collectable "pre-press" token. Happy Collecting, Boomer.

4/26/17 Our thanks to Randy K. for reporting that the DL0502-504 Cowboy Donald, Minnie, and Mickey coin press machine has been moved back from Bonanza Outfitters to its original location at the recently reopened Pioneer Mercantile. The ParkPennies Penny Machine Locations page has been updated.
Rumors of new machines are circulating more and more every day! Boomer is once again anxiously pacing the floor and searching the park in anticipation of offstage machines returning with the rumored new pressed coin sets. If you spy a new machine first, tell Boomer... Unless you prefer to maintain your undercover status, you'll see your find and your name honored here in print! A truly priceless honor! And within the minuscule budget of this free no ads by collectors for collectors hobbyist web site... ParkPennies.com. :-) Thank you again for your visits and "shares". Happy collecting, Boomer.

Not likely most DLR guests would find a machine in this location without the help of The Pressed Coins at Disneyland app or the ParkPennies Penny Machine Locations page. But, as you can see, you can't hide a penny press from avid collectors! :-) Happy collecting, Boomer.

3/20/17 We're starting to get caught up here, at last. Sometimes a little break between new machines is a good thing? :-) Boomer made a few edits and additions to the "Where Are The Old Penny Press Machines, Dies, & Marquee Signs?" page including prices paid for recent token die sales and past Disneyland Resort event dies that were auctioned over the years. We also added coin images and guide entries for the latest Star Wars coins in DCA and the new Tomorrowland Vehicles pressed pennies in Disneyland. The Star Wars pressed coins guide has been updated a little with the new DCA coins and will eventually have Star Wars coins from locations outside of The Disneyland Resort, if Boomer ever stops spending so much time at the park! :-) But, you know there are new machines rumored. Boomer is going to be looking! Happy collecting, Boomer. Oh, if you have some time to surf the net a bit, fellow ParkPennies visitors have linked a lot of eBay Disney pressed coins auctions. Do check them out.

3/03/17 Just updated: A cool new Android phone app for locating Disneyland Resort pressed coins and keeping track of them has been recently introduced by Bad Llama Group.
