Three more 8-die machines added, all at Hollywood Studios

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.

Sales page updated with several Disneyland sets

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.

Disney Springs store changes may affect machines

Marketplace Fun Finds will close July 24 for renovation for one week. It is expected to have a new name and merchandise selection when it re-opens.
Once Upon a Toy will close July 31 for renovation. Its Star Wars merchandise will be moved to Marketplace Fun Finds while Toy is being refurbished.
This will affect several penny presses, but we don’t know which ones might become unavailable long-term. None of the machines bear the stores’ names, so they will not become obsolete. Three are hand-crank machines that could be quickly placed anywhere.
AUGUST 3 UPDATE: The Marvel 8-die machine has been placed inside World of Disney (in an area devoted to Marvel merchandise) during the renovation.

PizzeRizzo gets two machines

PizzeRizzo – the Hollywood Studios pizza shop that replaced Pizza Planet – has two new penny presses.  Of the six featured coins, three are new coins and three are retired coins brought back.

The first machine has a new coin with a PizzeRizzo theme, a Frozen design with Anna and Elsa, and Syndrome from The Incredibles.  Inclusion of Syndrome means all seven Incredibles coins are available once again.

The second machine has a new Tinkerbell design and a new Stitch penny, and also brings back the old Walt Disney Studios coin with Mickey’s silhouette and a movie camera.
