50th Anniversary Collectible Medallions – Walt Disney World (Complete)

To see a a complete tour around WDW Property searching for all 53 collectible medallions check out our YouTube video here.


** Updated 11/24/2021 **

It has finally happened, the last machine was placed inside the World of Disney store at Disney Springs this morning. This completes the 53 total medallions set. I have included details and pictures below.

I have read some comments here about ideas some of you have had about how you will be displaying your medallions. I would love to hear and see all that you come up with so if you are interested please send me a picture of your medallion displays once done and I’ll create another section in this post showing off all your hard creative ideas.

A HUGE thank you to everyone that has helped find these medallions. This has been a lot of fun and the conversations we’ve had in the comments has really helped many other collectors work towards completing their sets. – DCT


I’m sure you have all been anxiously following along in the related article to this one where I’ve documented all the 50th Anniversary Pressed coins that I have been hunting down. If you haven’t be sure to check it out here. Something I’ve been hearing along my travels for those coins is that not only will we be seeing 50 special pressed coins, but also 50 collectible medallions. I don’t know for sure if this will be true or not, but just in case I figured why not keep this search in a separate post to keep things nice and organized. Here is what we have found so far.

Magic Kingdom

This first medallions machine was found inside the Magic Kingdom right on Main Street inside the Hall of Champions store.

This set has some really nice designs of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Lady and Tinkerbell. The reverse of each coin has a smiling Mickey face, and says The World’s Most Magical Celebration 50 Walt Disney World which I really love.

Thank you to Lisa for spotting this single 50th Medallion design with Dante from the Animated movie Coco. This single medallion has been placed in the Plaza del Sol (Pirates of the Caribbean) gift shop. The other three designs are unchanged from before and are still Pirate themed but no associated with the special 50th designs. Originally this medallion was rumored to be headed over to the Port Orleans Riverside Resort but instead looks like this will be its permanent home.

Epcot

The next set of medallions to be released was over at Epcot inside the Port of Entry store which is located just as you enter the World Showcase if you are coming from the Spaceship earth area of the park. There are two gift shops in this area that are almost identical and this is the one closes to the Canada Pavilion side.

This machine has been in this location for quite a while. In the past we have seen medallions for some of the different Festivals, but then it went stale for quite awhile with some Winter character designs that stuck around for much longer than we anticipated. I was happy to see these have finally been updated with some nice new 50th Anniversary designs of Figment, Miguel from Coco, the Genie from Aladdin and Jimmy Cricket.

Just across the courtyard from the above Port of Entry store is the similarly designs (almost duplicate) Disney Traders store. We had heard rumors that a second medallion machine would be released here and it finally arrived. The machine can be found just inside the side entrance near the main checkout area. The medallion designs available here are of Nemo, Dory, Flounder and Sebastien.

Hollywood Studios

Special thank you to Stephanie E, Matthew and Zizzy who all came across the newly released medallion machine at Hollywood Studios. This machine can be found in the Celebrity 5 & 10 store located near the front of the park as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard. The designs available her include Lumber, Woody, R2-D2 and Hei Hei from Moana.

The second set of medallions can be found in the Tower of Terror building. For those of you not interested in actually riding this attraction, no problem at all. The machine is available in the Tower Hotel Gift which can be accessed without actually riding. Just walk inside the gift shop and head towards the back where you will see plenty of guests exiting from the ride. The medallion machine is right next to the pressed penny machine. The designs available here include Goofy, BB-i, Bruni from Frozen and Cogsworth.

Animal Kingdom

Next up we took a headed into the jungle over at one of the most beautiful Disney parks Animal Kingdom. There was only one medallion machine I knew about in this park so that’s where I was headed first before exploring the rest of the park. Thankfully may assumption was correct and this existing machine had the old Lion King designs removed and replaced with the new 50th versions.

This machine is located in the Ziwani Traders store which is back near the Kilimanjaro Safari attraction entrance. The medallions available here include Simba, Bambi, Timon and Pumbaa.

Disney Springs

Before we start our pilgrimage to all the different resorts looking for medallions I was pretty sure we would find some a Disney Springs. More specifically in the Pin Trader store where there was currently a machine with some 2021 designs.

Sure enough my hunch was right and the machine was just recently loaded with these brand new 50th designs Donald, Daisy, Winnie the Pooh and Piglet too.

The second machine available in Disney Springs can be found in the gigantic World of Disney store. The machine is just inside the doors to the left of the Starbucks in front of the store. This is also currently where most of the 50th Celebration merchandise can be found. The medallions of Olaf, Jaq and Gus have returned after being missing for weeks, but we have now finally found the infamous Cheshire Cat.

Contemporary Resort

The first set of collectible medallions I have come across at a resort was found in a brand new machine over at the Contemporary Resort. It can be found on the 4th floor concourse just outside the arcade near the monorail security check point.

These medallions were nice quality, bright and shiny. Plus they were really heavy, even more heavy than I think the standard medallions we have found around property were but I may have to double check on that. Could have been I was just more used to the penny weight lately instead. The designs are of similar characters we have found on the pressed pennies including Tramp, Bo Peep, Pinocchio and even a Contemporary Resort image. They are not exactly the same designs that are on the pennies but similar. I’m hoping this is not going to be the case where the medallions and pennies all have the same / similar designs but I’m sure we will find out before too long.

Polynesian Village Resort

The Polynesian Village resort is one of my favorites. Unfortunately I’ve never actually stayed here, but have visited many times either to collect some pressed coins or in most situations to eat at ‘Ohana which is my all time favorite restaurant on WDW Property. On the second floor of the Great Ceremonial House across from ‘Ohana is a shop called the Moana Mercantile and just outside this store is where the next medallion machine can be found.

Adding to this ever growing set of 50th Anniversary Medallions we found designs celebrating the Polynesian Village Resort, the Orange Bird, Stitch and Pua from Moana. The reverse image is the same as all the other medallions we have found so far.

All-Star Movies Resort

A very special thank you to Kathleen B. who submitted a tip on the next two sets of medallions.

This machine is found in the World Premier Food Court and has replaced the pressed quarter machine that used to be here. The cabinet matches the pressed penny machines which I think is a nice touch. The medallion designs here are of the Mad Hatter, Joe Gardner, Frozone and Edna Mode.

All-Star Music Resort

Thankfully this next resort was not too far away, and I just walked over to the All-Star Music resort. The new medallion machine has also replaced the pressed quarter machines that was outside the Note’able Games Arcade.

This is an other great set of medallions with designs of Dumbo, Timothy Mouse, Pluto and Abu.

Fort Wilderness Resort & Campgrounds

The medallion machine at the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campgrounds has been released and is available at the Meadow Trading Post. This can be a bit of a difficult location to visit. The campgrounds are currently on a very strict restriction and will only allow guests staying at the campgrounds or with a dining reservation to come in and park. Now you can get around this by parking at one of the Theme Parks or Disney Springs and taking a Disney Bus over, or the boats from Magic Kingdom. Once you are at the campgrounds you will need to take the Orange internal bus to the Meadow Trading post. There are other internal bus colors but they do not pass near this Trading Post.

The machine is located just inside the main set of doors to this store. The credit card option was not working when I visited, but it was accepting cash with no issue. The medallion designs available here include one special Fort Wilderness Resort with hiking Mickey, Thumper, Chip and Dale.

Storage and Display Ideas

We have received lots of questions about recommendations for how to store and display these fantastic new medallions we have all been furiously hunting for. Below I have outlined some suggestions I received from readers and included links to where you can buy them. These are not affiliate links, I just included the listings from Amazon as it was the easiest to find but I’m sure you can find these items at other coin collection suppliers. Please note I did include prices just as a guideline so you know roughly how much to expect for each option, but as we know with Amazon and other retailers these prices can change without notice.

First at these 41mm plastic coin capsules that include foam gaskets to surround the coin and ensure they fit snuggly in the enclosure. This also includes the plastic storage box which holds 60 coins. Here is the link if you would like to get more details or order them, at the time of posting this item costs $14.99 USD.

Next is this nice looking Coin Collection Book that has 60 pockets inside perfect for this entire set plus a few extra if needed. This book will hold 2 inch x 2 inch cardboard flips that will protect each coin then you jus slide them into each page. The nice thing about the cardboard flips if they can be written on to include information on the design, collected date, location or whatever you want to include. Here is the link for the Coin Collection Book if you are interested in this option and at the time of posting costs $6.99 USD.

As mentioned above if you wanted to use that coin book you would also need to get some of the 2×2 cardboard flips. These are available at pretty much every coin collecting shop or online retailer. These do come in a large variety of window sizes, so be sure and select the 40mm version as that will allow for the entire medallions to be visible. Here is the link for a version on Amazon but come in quantities of 50 for $6.50 USD. Just be aware you may need to get a second order if you have the entire set of medallions.

If you are interested in the 2×2 cardboard flip option, but don’t want the smaller Coin Booklet you can use the above pictured plastic pocket sheets that fit into any standard three-ring binder. This is a common option for many coin collectors so you may already have some of these in your home. Here is the link for these sheets which usually come in packs of 20 for $8.95 USD. Just be sure to get the 2inch by 2inch version which should give 20 pockets per page. I didn’t see where you could buy the pages individually so you may end up having plenty left over which we may need again for Walt Disney Worlds 60th!! Hint Hint Disney.

Our friend Donna mentioned the above beautiful display as another option for the 50th Medallions. This is labeled as being for Military Challenge Coin’s, but looks like it would also be a great option for our new Disney coins as well. Here is the link so you can check it out, and at the time of printing costs $38.95 USD.

Above is a beautiful display from fellow collector Michelle D. with some of her special 50th Medallions and Pressed Pennines. What a great idea, thank you for sharing!

  2. So far I’ve seen Epcot had Genie, Jiminy Cricket, Figment, and Miguel at the Port of Entry.
    Polynesian had Polynesian, Orange Bird, Stitch and Pua.
    Excited to find out how many there are! (Even if they are a bit expensive)

    • That is a great set of new medallions and I’m happy to see that machine in Epcot finally get some new designs. I have also seen 50th medallions in Magic Kingdom, the Contemporary Resort, Polynesian Resort and also received a message that Animal Kingdom just gone some today. They are certain rolling them out quickly. It’s defintely going to be pricey to get all of these, but from what I’ve seen they are really popular among guests and collectors.

      • I have not heard anything about medallions at Hollywood Studios, but since they are showing up at the other parks I would assume that park will get a machine as well. I did hear that one or two of the All-Star Resorts is on the list to get new medallion machines shortly. I’m hoping to get back over there within the week to check on it and will also be keeping an eye on Hollywood Studios. Rumor is we are getting 50 medallions as well so there are plenty more machines still due to be released around the property.

The info I have on the Goofy design is that it may be in a machine at Hollywood Studios in the Tower of Terror Gift shop. I visited that shop earlier today (10/6) and the machine wasn’t there (yet). But I’ll keep checking back over the next few days.

    • I stopped by Magic Kingdom to check on the medallions and they changed slightly again since your visit. Lady is now gone and was replaced with Jaq. So the machine currently has Mickey, Gusgus, Olaf and Jaq. I still think that those original designs will come back once they get more in stock, and since this is a popular location they didn’t want the machine left empty so they are filling it with some designs that were scheduled to be placed elsewhere on property in the future. Thanks again for keeping an eye out for these changes.

      • The Olaf, Gusgus and Jaq coins were only placed in the Magic Kingdom (Main Street Hall of Champion store) for a few days while the machine was restocked with the original designs (Mickey, Minnie, Lady, Tinker Bell). Currently they have not been made available again, but the rumors we have heard is they will be in a machine somewhere in Disney Springs either World of Disney store or the Pin Traders store. So far no news on this machine but hopefully it should be available soon.

  8. David, in your opinion, how may medallion variations do you think they will release? The 50th anniversary goes on for a year and a half and Disney has 1000s of characters – they could make a lot of medallions. The chase is really fun and if you could make a complete set of every medallion released that would be really epic!

    • That is certainly a hot topic among collectors. We assumed there would be 50 designs but with each machine having 4 designs it seems more likely we will see more than exactly 50. I think it would be great to see them changed out periodically during the 50th celebration but would make acquiring the entire set quite the task. I’ve been doing my best to keep this post updated with all the changes and once I think all the medallions have been released I’ll have a picture or one-pager to print out with all the designs and locations to hopefully help guests collect the entire set. I’m also working on a video for our YouTube channel that will also show off all the machine locations and designs. Just trying my best to help everyone collect these fun collectible coins. Thanks again for reaching out, all the eyes out in the park certainly helps keep our list up to date.

When McDonald’s released the 50 characters for their happy meal toys, Figment & Orange Bird weren’t included – instead they were replaced with Genie & Jiminy Cricket. Maybe that’s why they included them as coins too.

  14. Hi Everyone,
    My wife and I were at MK for her birthday on Saturday (10/16). We saw the 50th Medallions for the first time and picked up four. We then heard that they were all over Disney. We went on a scavenger hunt to all four parks, Disney Springs, and five resorts. While we were checking the Polynesian and Contemporary, we also checked the Grand Floridian (none were there). There were also four non-50th medallions at the Pirates of the Caribbean. The only one that we could not get was Bambi at Animal Kingdom – they were sold out.
    This is a list of the medallions that we picked up and their locations:
    50th Medallion (Polynesian)
    Mickey Mouse (Magic Kingdom)
    Minnie Mouse (Magic Kingdom)
    Mickey and Minnie (Contemporary)
    Donald Duck (Disney Springs)
    Daisy Duck (Disney Springs)
    Pluto (All Star Music)
    Lumiere (Hollywood Studios)

    Timothy E. Mouse (All Star Movies)
    Stitch (Polynesian)
    Pooh (Disney Springs)
    Piglet (Disney Springs)
    Pinocchio (Contemporary)
    Lady (Magic Kingdom)
    Tramp (Contemporary)
    Abu (All Star Music)
    Tinkerbell (Magic Kingdom)
    Figment (Epcot)
    Miguel (Epcot)
    Pua (Polynesian)
    Hei-hei (Hollywood Studios)

    The Fab 50 characters from the celebration statues,
    Plus Genie & Jiminy Cricket (who replaced Figment & Orange Bird in the 50 Happy Meal toys that were released),
    And the Contemporary & Polynesian (the only two resorts that existed when WDW opened in 1971)

  17. Thought I’d offer some geeky technical specs on the medallions (because I’m a coin collector and such things interest me :). I noticed there are two types of medallions, reeded edge (like a quarter) and smooth edge (like a nickel). Both types are 1.5 inches (38.1 mm) in diameter. The reeded edge version (like Minnie) weighs 20 grams and is about 2.5 mm thick. The smooth edge (like Edna) is bigger, weighs 25 gms and is about 3 mm thick. Interesting there are two distinct varieties which indicates they probably are coming from two different mints, hopefully Disney is using US based mints – several are very capable of doing these.

Some other collectors I’ve spoken with think it’s similar to the newer zinc-coated US cents and that the medallions have an inexpensive center core of some type and are then coated. But so far I haven’t heard any definitive info on what they are made up sorry. If I do find out anything I’ll add to this post.

      • It doesn’t seem so. I think that’s why some of the machines have been getting designs that are scheduled for other locations. Disney or the Third party vendor seems like they may have underestimated the popularity of these medallions. I get the feeling once they have a more adequate inventory of these coins available we will see those last few machines appear in their rumored locations. Hopefully soon as I’d like to see those last few sets.

  19. ~Update~
    Polynesian, MK, and Contemporary are back to the original medallions. I did not go Disney Spring because I got some new information for us. Wednesday is the day that the Medallions get restocked. After Wednesday if any of the machine runs out the vendor is notified (not sure if by the machine itself or Disney contacts them) and they’ll put whatever they have on hand to restock with. One of the merchandise Coordinator shared that information. But I did not miss out on this little trip. The 50th Chip and Dale plushes arrived today. This has made my trip worth while. Halle-freaking-lujah 🙌🏽

  22. Thank you, David for the 10/25/2021 update. As I was updating my list of the WDW 50th Medallions on the ones that I still need. I realized that Rocket Raccoon and Baby Groot are not on the print out list maybe they’ll be added with Dante at Port Orleans? That would be so positive. Here’s hoping. I also noticed that Goofy is on the list twice DHS and AS Movies. Pluto is the one at AS Movies. My husband gets them confused all of the time. I have a friend that works at World of Disney and she said that they were informed that the other medallion machine will be moved to Disney’s Pin Traders instead. How accurate is that? I don’t know. She said she’ll keep an eye out for us. So as of now I just need 15 including the FWC Logo, Baby Groot and Rocket.

To my knowledge there hasn’t previously been a medallion for this resort so I don’t think it’s an old design they brought back, but that is something I’ll try to look into further. I did just double check the reverse design on that medallion and is the same as the others with the 50th Mickey.

If you try going after this weekend I’m sure they won’t have as tight restrictions.

      • Not when I went. I parked at orange garage and got on the FW bus with no problem. The bus driver didn’t ask any questions. When you’re brought back to Disney Spring the bus drops you off near the lime garage.

  23. I got the Fort Wilderness medallions! Woohoo!!!!
    Now I’m only missing:

    Goofy
    Cheshire cat
    Cogsworth
    Bruni
    Dante
    BB-8
    Rocket
    Groot

    Has anyone heard anything about Rocket & Groot? I’m hoping that they’ll be released with Dante in the Port New Orleans machine, and I wonder what the fourth medallion will be at that location – another resort logo, maybe???

    I check this page every day for updates. Thank you for helping us collect all these lovely medallions.

  24. I also went to FWC last night via DS Bus and the Orange Bus (Thank you David for that very helpful information). All the Medallions have the 50th Anniversary Mickey. Thumper, Chip and Dale have the 50 next to them. I think they just dropped the ball on the hiking Mickey. Maybe they couldn’t come up with a better design. 🤔 I also picked up the Chip and Dale press pennies. 😊 11 more medallions to go.

  25. Today the Dante medallion is in the Pirates gift shop in Adventure Land at MK. It’s the only 50th medallion in that machine, the other three coins are regular pirates medallions that are usually there.

  26. I heard some sad news today. According to a cast member at Disney Pin Traders, who has also been collecting medallions, there won’t be medallions for Rocket & Groot. These two members of the “Fab 50” were replaced with Genie & Jiminy Cricket, who also replaced Orange Bird & Figment in the 50 McDonald’s happy meal toys. So this means the only medallion we haven’t seen yet (and the only one I still need) is the Cheshire Cat, which was going to be in a machine at World of Disney in DS, but is now going to be in another machine at Pin Traders, along with Olaf, Jaq & Gus. No one at Pin Traders knew the reason for the location change, or when exactly the new machine will be installed, though they suggested I check next week.

    • Lisa, thank you so much for the information. I’m so sad no Baby Groot and Rocket. But, I always try to stay positive. So…. just four more to go. Fifty-three in total including Contemp, Poly, and Fort Wilderness Logo. I already have ideas on how to display them. Thanks to you I picked up Dante @ MK today and thanks to David I picked up Goofy, BB-8, Bruni, and Cogsworth @ DHS yesterday. This has been super fun.

  27. Left the pirates stand last night. Note there was no coco coins, but there were dabloons, pirate Mickey and a couple of others. Did you have to ask for the coco coin as posted above?

    • I’m sorry to hear that. When I visited last week the medallion was in the machine so I didn’t need to ask anyone. The only issue I ran into was the digital payment wasn’t working and had to use cash. I have heard some other guests have tried asking nearby cast members and sometimes they have extra medallions available behind the checkout areas. Was there still a button for the Dante/Coco medallion but it was just out of stock?

    • I just received a note from someone that said the Dante medallion was back at the Pirates machine 11/3 around 545pm. Seems like it was out of stock and temporarily removed as we have found with other designs recently. Makes getting some of these coins quite difficult to acquire. Hopefully you can get back over there sometime soon

    • Greg, the prevailing wisdom is Groot and Rocket are not going to appear on a medallion. I think the only medallion never seen is the elusive Cheshire Cat.

  30. The machine at Disney Traders in Epcot was installed overnight . We spoke to the man that loads the coins and he told us the last machine at World of Disney will be another week and a half or two .
    He also told us if the machine jams and you can’t get a certain coin, that the store or hotel guest relations are given extras so you can trade out a coin you did not want, but had to take because of a jam.

  31. Hey all, while on my trip over Halloween I was able to collect all medallions except for the kiosk just put in Traders and the one that has not showed up in Disney Springs. A friend of mine is in Disney right now and she is gonna try to get me the Nemo set from Traders, leaving me just needing the last four (olaf, Cheshire, gus, and jaq). Would any of you awesome peeps be willing to pick me up the medallions when the last kiosk shows up and mail them to me? I will venmo, paypal, whatever and make it worth it. Thanks.

    • I’ve received some recommendations of ways to protect and store the medallions. I’ll be adding a section to the bottom of this post shortly with details on the suggestions and links to where you can get them. Hope this may help

      • David, Wow! I just saw the recommendations for the medallions. Thank you for taking the time and all of the information. My husband is a coin collector. He has plenty of the 41mm plastic coin capsules. I got lucky. My idea is to frame my Magic Kingdom 10.1.21 take away poster along with the medallions. I hope to make it an art piece. Something I will cherish.

  32. Hi Everyone,
    Have any of the cast members confirmed that they are only issuing Fab-50 medallions? I have 49 Medallions now and waiting on four more to come to Disney Springs. Some of them appear new, just without the 50th logo (like the Hiking Mickey). If Disney wants to keep the scavenger hunt going throughout their 50th Anniversary, they may add other machines to other hotels and within the parks. Or perhaps they will add other 2021 medallions and just not put the 50th logo on them. I was expecting Disney to put two machines in each park and one in each of the resorts. Any thoughts?

    • I visited Disney Springs yesterday (11/18) and that machine still wasn’t available. I heard from another collector that they spoke with the technician at one of the machines and he said it would be out next week before Thanksgiving at either World of Disney or Pin Traders.
