Has it been a year already? Where has the time gone.
It’s been a little while since a new set of press coins was released in the Disneyland park. But with the new Guardians of the Galaxy released in California Adventure a couple of weeks ago I’m hoping this is the beginning of a bunch of new sets. These new coins are a nice surprise as they are pressed on Nickels which don’t happen to often, and are also the dates designs for 2017.
The location of this machine is the same as it’s been all year. Located at the exit to the Main Street Opera House where you can see Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. Technically you can get in the exit (naughty naughty) and just use the machine, but if you have the time it’s always great to see one of the original attractions that started it all for Disneyland.
For 2017 this new set of coins has images of all our Main Street favorite snacks. The Little Red Wagon Corn Dogs, Gibson Girl Ice Cream, and Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe.
The backstamp features a nice nostalgic Disneyland Main Street U.S.A. Logo. This is really a feature I wish the Florida parks would get into as the backstamps really make the finished product stand out.
Since these are the latest dates coins I’m pretty sure you have about 12 months to collect it but you never know. I wouldn’t delay as you never know what may happen or when these machines will go down and not come back. These dates coins are really becoming popular and are always exciting to see what designs are released each year.
