The Disneyland Resort was closed from March 14, 2020 to April 30, 2021 due to "COVID-19 restrictions". As Disneyland Resort Fans know all too well, there were no new coins to be found 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. The Annual Pass program was ended, Passholders were given refunds. A new "standby" Magic Key program wasn't offered until August 25, 2021 which required a reservation drawn from a limited AP allocation. Disneyland Resort Fans that braved the pandemic and paid the increased admission prices found there were no new machines waiting for them. 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. (Sorry for the necessary rant. :-) 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 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 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.) Given the recent changes in Disneyland Resort admission / reservations policy and the discontinuance of coin press support by on-site Cast Members, future machine / coin listings may have to substitute "first reported date" in place of "first onstage date". For those who wish to focus on the traditional "press your own coin" pre-COVID-19 / pre-Vended Disney elongated coins, our pre-covid guides are here for you. Happy collecting, Boomer.

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, terms like: stamped coins, pressed coins, 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. :-) Here are some pages about the often asked questions of How many pressed coins are at Disney? and How much do pressed coins cost? Just for fun, here is a page with a bit of a different take on Pressed Coins Facts and Fiction with tips on how different coins press, cool pressed coin jewelry, early penny presses... Happy Collecting! Boomer and the folks at ParkPennies.com :-)
