The Lands Pressed Penny Collection Profile

Disney Pressed Pennies
Pressed penny subset of Disneyland Resort elongated coin collection, Disneyland Park.
Relative Collecting Difficulty - Easy at the time these elongated coins were first released.
Relative Cost - Low (while still onstage :-).
Closed or Open - At first believed to be a closed set, then one three play penny press was converted to pressing nickels. Also, the key elongated coin, the Main Street USA nickel was changed twice before its replacement with a machine engraved replica.
Note - The cool Main Street USA nickel is the first Disney coin to have a backstamp.
Early Main Street USA nickels have a small grip notch, later nickels have an enlarged grip.
This set is believed to be complete as pictured at the top of this page. There are other coins that share the same style of art work, examples are at the lower center of this page. Disneyland officials have remained mute as of this date as to which coins were intended to be "Lands Set" coins. So, it’s your call, at least for now. We've shown the Lands Set as described on an Official Disneyland penny press map of the time.
UPDATE Mid-2011:The definitive classic nine coin Land Pressed Penny Set was placed onstage at the Lincoln exit (Main Street Opera exit). Eight coins are numbered on the machine marquee as "1 of 8" etc. and are upgraded versions of the earlier set coins, plus a ninth coin, "Let the Magic Begin" featuring Mickey Sorcerer. These coins are "Classic Style". They are excellent, old-school hand engraved coin dies by Jimmy Vargas with excellent high-relief devices, details and dot boarders. Nice set!
