** See below for contest to win a free set of 2017 WDW coins **
For those of you that read my original post with the concept design pictures of the new 2017 pressed coin designs this is a quick follow-up. Shortly after that post I was contacted by a representative at CTM Group (The Pennymen), and we traded a few messages back and forth. They were nice enough to offer a copy of the entire set of coins fresh from the machines throughout the resort so I could post pictures of the actual coins.
Above is a picture of all the coins together. There are the same number as last year but I think the designs this year have definitely gone up in detail.
Here I have a picture of all the penny designs together.
Next are all the quarter designs.
The picture above shows a close up of a cool little sub-set within the 2017 dates set. Each theme park had one design with Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey in the middle, and an icon from each park above his head. For Epcot there is Spaceship Earth, Animal Kingdom has the Tree of Life, Hollywood Studios has The Tower of Terror, and the Magic Kingdom of course has Cinderella’s Castle. These four designs are a numbered set which is listed directly on each coin.
All of these designs are really nice this year, but I must say the one listed above is my personal favorite. When I first saw it I just thought it was fantastic. This design is located in the Magic Kingdom at the Main Street Railroad Station. It’s cool that all four of the park iconic symbols are all on one coin along with the 2017 year. This is really a great way to start off the new year.
Obviously these will be around for the entire year, but do not hesitate to get yourself a set. These are a great addition to any collection and will be gone before you know it.
**Thank you to the CTM Group team for all their work on these new designs, and for taking the time to reach out. It was very much appreciated!
