It's great to see more pressed penny jewelry on the 'net nowadays. Years ago, we might see a single pressed coin on a necklace or a special pressed coin on a key chain as a fun souvenir now and then. Maybe we'd see a pressed coin given as a Disneyland Cast Member award or gift once in a great while. But, today, a Google search will reveal a wide range of interesting "pressed penny jewelry", from fun to fancy.
On this page some special "pressed penny" bracelets that I thought would be of interest to fellow Disney pressed coin collectors. One is made with copper pressed pennies on a copper bracelet and the other with silver planchets that were pressed at Disneyland Park on a silver Mickey bracelet. In my humble opinion, they great examples of the art, were definitely designed by fellow "Advanced Collectors", and look great. I hope these bracelets will be motivation for you to design a bracelet of your own with a theme special to you or to someone special to you. Happy collecting, Boomer.
The formal silver bracelet above is a chronological journey or collection of Disneyland memories presented as a gift to one very special Disney Pressed Coin Fan. The Mickey bracelet starts the storyline with a "Let the Memories Begin" Mickey Mouse pressed penny and follows with pressed souvenirs representing some of the wearer's earliest memories of Disneyland with their family. Each memory memorialized on a pressed souvenir inviting the wearer to make more memories! (View the reverse images or stampbacks of the pressed coins.)
This fun "Lands Set" charm bracelet is also made of silver "pressed coins". The theme is fun places at the Disneyland Resort, often called the "Lands Set" because each of the nine pressed coins represents one of the nine classic Disneyland lands. The Mickey bracelet is meant to call the wearer back to visit again soon. Copper pressed pennies can be plated in gold, silver, nickel... Be sure to use solid copper pre 1982 cents.
