As Disneyland Resort Fans know all too well, The Disneyland Resort was closed from March 14, 2020 to April 30, 2021 due to "COVID-19 restrictions". There were no new coins anywhere in the DLR over the length of the closure even though parts of Disney California Adventure and Downtown Disney were open from time to time. As the guides will attest, the last new coin designs in Disneyland were placed onstage back on December 11, 2019 and the last new coin designs in Disney California Adventure were placed onstage January 31, 2020. Needless to say, many collectors were looking forward to the park's reopening with the hope that they would be greeted by several long overdue new coin press machines and designs. But, that was not the case. There were no new machines waiting for guests. No traditional 2020 Disneyland or Disney California Adventure Holiday Pressed Nickel sets and no annual pressed coin sets either. Not to mention there were no other new pressed coin designs of any kind to be found. What did happen shortly after the Disneyland Resort reopened was the conversion of existing "press your own penny" 50 cent machines to $1.00 pressed coin vending machines that furnish the (often zinc) penny to be pressed. Some of the coin presses were already missing on reopening day. Within a few months, most all of souvenir penny presses had been converted. With the converted machines, you no longer can "press your own penny" and the price has doubled to $1.00. (New machines accept only $1 and $5 dollar bills for payment, no change given or optionally a credit card payment of $3.00 for a full set of three coins from a three-play machine or a discounted payment of $5.00 for a full set of eight coins from eight-play machines.)
