We have the concept art from Disney World’s coin vendor for this new machine placed at Disney’s Days of Christmas store, a year-round location at Disney Springs. The 8-die machine was placed there last week. As with similar machines, it dispenses its own zinc pennies. The Days of Christmas store is located in the Marketplace near Rainforest Cafe.
A new 4-die machine was added to the Goofy’s Candy Co. store in Disney Springs last week. All the designs feature Goofy, and three have the store’s name. (Photo of concept art from http://www.ctmgroupinc.com/disney)
Two new machines were added in late September to Port Orleans. With a total of seven designs, the new machines are dedicated to the New Orleans-based cartoon The Princess & The Frog.
The website for CTM Group, the vendor responsible for penny presses at Disney World, had shown the old Celebrity 5 & 10 machine at Port Orleans, but in early October the site was updated to show the 3-die Frog machine instead.
Another 8-die zinc-dispensing machine has been added – this time at the Tomorrowland Power & Light store adjacent to Space Mountain. All 8 coins have space or Space Mountain themes and bear the attraction’s name.
The machine is toward the back of the store and replaces the 3-die quarter press. That machine may be retired, or it may make a comeback.
The Once Upon a Toy store at Disney Springs has replaced the four dies in its hand-crank machine with four new designs. Gone are two pennies from The Incredibles and two from Cars. The new dies feature Buzz Lightyear, a little green man alien, Mickey Mouse with arms outstretched, and Nemo with Dory.
More 8-die machines have been added (with zinc pennies supplied by the machines).
Two machines at Once Upon a Time were added. One has Beauty & the Beast theme, and replaces a 3-die Beauty & the Beast machine. The second machine has Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs as a numbered set; it replaces a machine with 3 princes.
Meanwhile, at the end of Sunset Boulevard a new 8-die machine has been placed in the photo preview area of Tower of Terror (adjacent to the gift shop). It has coins with a Tower theme, including several with popular Disney characters.
My sales page has been updated with numerous sets from Disneyland. This includes all the machines that have been installed since the 60th anniversary celebration ended in 2016.
All pennies are pressed on pre-1982 copper cents, and quarters are pressed on AU and BU quarters. In addition, there is a selection of designs pressed on foreign coins that are the same size as American coins.
