It seems like quite a while since there has been a new pressed coin machine over on the west coast. Back in October the Anna and Elsa Boutique in Anaheim’s Downtown Disney converted over to The Dream Boutique.
This changed the theming and merchandise from Frozen to all things Princess. The store was open for a bit when the penny machine inside also changed from a set of Frozen pennies to a set of three princesses. Then just as quickly as the machine showed up, it was taken away and didn’t come back until just recently.
The designs were the same as the pennies before the quick removal, but the machine has been covered to press on nickels. This was really a cool upgrade as there are not many machines that press nickels and they make for a nice big canvas for these new detailed designs Disneyland has been releasing.
Each coin also has a Disney Princess Disneyland logo which is always a cool feature of the machine. I wish they did this at the Florida Disney machines.
I wasn’t quick enough to get a set of this set pressed on pennies as it disappeared before I could get a set. They are probably pretty rare at this point, but these new nickel pressings are a nice tradeoff.
