CM0052 Cast Member CARS LAND Cars Land logo Pressed Penny.
CM0052 CARS LAND logo Cast Member Pressed Penny. CARS LAND logo, ©DISNEY/PIXAR, "D" for Disney California Adventure replaces the dot nearest the top center of the coin, dot or bead style border. Backstamp: "A Penny For Your Thoughts". The engraver's artwork used to create this elongated coin has been attributed to Maria Clapsis, the well known Disney character art and merchandise designer. This obverse coin die was onstage from July 27, 2012 to July of 2017 with a Buena Vista backstamp as the CA0147. Then, while these coin dies were offstage, they were matched with "Penny For Your Thoughts" backstamps to make this CM0052, CM0053, and CM0054 Cast Member set offstage. Based on reports to ParkPennies, in September of 2017 about 200 each of the CM0052, CM0053, and CM0054 coins were distributed to Cast Members that participated in a survey. Shortly after that, these same coin dies were paired with new ©DISNEY/PIXAR Cars Land Logo backstamps in a new themed state of the art video coin press machine making the CA0241-243 Cars Land set, and placed onstage October 23, 2017. (This Disneyland pressed coin number made with The #DCA0080.0.2 obverse elongated coin die in its original "0" state / variation, paired with this coin's "2" or second reverse coin die, Penny For Your Thoughts backstamp.)

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: stamped coins, 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. :-)
