Tokyo Disneyland ® Resort
Pressed Penny Machines

The Tokyo Disneyland Resort medals are vended from three major areas or gates of the resort. Accordingly, Japanese medals are listed in three specialized guides: The TDL Tokyo Disneyland Guide, The TDS Tokyo DisneySea Guide and The TDR Tokyo Disneyland Resort Hotels Guide which includes the shopping, dinning and transportation properties. Tokyo Disneyland penny press machines press planchets rather than coins although they are often called "pennies" and "nickels" in Japan. Collectors outside of Japan often use the words "penny" or "nickel" to describe the medals depending if they are copper or silver in color. We prefer to use terms in our guides consistent with those used by collectors. However, we are told, the terms "elongated souvenirs" and "medals" are considered by some to be the "most correct".
To give a brief overview of this excellent collection, here is our Tokyo Disneyland Medal Collections Outline.
It would be challenging even for an advanced collector to complete a collection of all the medals ever issued at the Tokyo Disneyland Resort. Some medals have been retired from Tokyo Disneyland Park since 1996. Not to mention all the other issues from the Tokyo Disneyland Park, DisneySea ® and all Tokyo Disneyland ® Resort Hotels. It’s a large collection! Yet there are some very well defined, interesting collection sub-sets or specialties that readers have mentioned. These subsets, listed above, (Disney Store Japan, Coins of the Month and 25th Anniversary sets) are often easy to manage and provide a great start to collecting all the issues. Of course, if you are like us, you'll eventually want to collect them all.
Above are a few suggested collections. The links will open the appropriate section of the Tokyo Disneyland Resort Guide in this window. The guide will offer images that are links to full-size images, as well as descriptions and details. (To use frames, just click the "Frames Yes" link at the top right corner of most pages. The frames will hold selected, larger images for comparison and may be resized by clicking and dragging the frame edge if you’d like a bit more viewing area.)
Guide Number Code Example: TDL0501 "TDL" = Tokyo Disneyland Park "05" = 2005 "01" = Coin #1.
Guide order is chronological by year only.
