Shanghai Disneyland Greets Guests with
Twelve Coin Press Machines!


The Shanghai Disney Resort (officially) opened on June 16th, 2016 with a VIP open a few days earlier. As many long time ParkPennies readers are aware, the many multi-million dollar attractions, fancy restaurants, history making stores, and luxury hotels are of great interest to us... if they have a penny press machine! :-) To that end, the folks at ParkPennies have been all ears. Over the past few years, details about if, when, and where there might be coin press machines at the newest Disney Resort were hard to come by. But, shortly after the resort opened, several fellow pressed coin collectors and good people in the "industry" could confirm the long running rumors and with them, the start of this guide.

On opening day, twelve Magic Medallion pressed coin machines, placed throughout the Shanghai Disney Resort, SDR, greeted guests. These very popular souvenir presses were very diverse in both their coin image selections and machine designs. The opening Shanghai assortment of souvenir smashers included six traditional four-design hand-crank machines, five newer electric type machines offering eight different designs each, plus one electric machine offering twelve unique Zodiac designs for a total of 76 different souvenirs. Cost: 10.00 Chinese Yuan each or about $1.50 USD each. Placements were in hotels, stores, and the Disneyland theme park. Like the Tokyo Disneyland Resort and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, Shanghai Disney Resort souvenir pressers use hopper-fed penny-sized copper planchets, much in the way similar machines press pennies in the United States. However, the vended souvenirs at SDR appear to be of more even lengths and are solid copper like pre-1982 copper cents!

Note: Please read the Shanghai Disneyland Pressed Coin Tips & News if you planning a "penny pressing" "squishin' mission" visit to the Shanghai Disneyland Resort. Based on all we've heard, we think you'll to have a great time and these tips will help make it even more fun and a lot less stressful. :-)

We feel collecting these little treasures could make for a fun family hobby or maybe even evolve into a life-long personal quest! :-) If you are a collector based outside of China, completing a collection of these very cool Shanghai Disney Resort souvenirs may be more challenging. However, knowing what designs have been issued and when new designs are first issued can be a great advantage in accomplishing your goal of collecting just one design type or every design type. We hope you will find this guide of help and might use it to share the hobby with friends. Fun! (<- Boomer's short sentence. :-) As always, your comments, additions, visits, likes, and links to ParkPennies are most appreciated. Happy collecting, Boomer.
