First I just want to put a big disclaimer here that this post will contain the collectible medallions that are available in Disneyland out in California. These are not currently available in Florida. For all Walt Disney World 100th Anniversary Medallions visit this separate post here. I do not personally have access to Disneyland so this information is being supplied by friends and fellow collectors, and I will try to keep it all organized here for everyone’s reference. Be sure to also check out the ParkPennies.com website for more detailed information on these Disneyland Coins and more.
If you have any updates or pictures on these machines please let know in the comments. Keep on Collecting!
** Souvenir Medallion Checklist with Photos available here.
Starting January 27th, 2023 Disneyland out in California has begun celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Walt Disney Company. There are plenty of new decorations, performances, special food and lots of souvenirs including a brand new set of Souvenir Medallions. I did want to mention that the price has gone up with this latest series, they now cost $6 for one coin, or $20 for the full set of four at each machine. Start saving now because this may be quite an expensive set to acquire.
The first item to appear in the parks was the above Souvenir Medallion Collection Book. This includes 10 plastic pocket pages that will hold 8 coins each for a total of 80 medallions. At this time we are not sure exactly how many 100 Years of Wonder coins will be made available so make sure to bookmark this page for all the details as we uncover all of them.
Above is an image of the reverse side of all the coins with the 100 Years of Wonder logo and does notate Disneyland specifically.
Main Street Penny Arcade
Not too far inside the park just along Main Street USA if you head inside the famous Penny Arcade you will come across the machine with coin designs of Mickey & Minnie, Donald & Daisy, Goofy & Pluto, and Chip & Dale all dressed up for the 100th Anniversary Celebration.
Space Mountain Exit
Over in Tomorrowland at the exit area of Space Mountain near where you would view your ride photos is the machine with this next set of Star Wars themed medallions. Luke & Vader, Yoda, Leia & R2-D2, and Chewie & Han.
Pieces of Eight Gift Shop (Pirate of the Caribbean)
Across the park in New Orleans Square just head inside the store for Pirates of the Caribbean known as the Pieces of Eight Gift Shop for this machine. This has a fun split of designs showing off Poochie the famous Pirates Prison Dog with Key, the Skull and Crossbones Pirates logo, and then two from the Haunted mansion featuring Madame Leota, and the guest favorite Hitchhiking Ghosts Gus, Phineas and Ezra.
Disney California Adventure Park
Kingswell Camera Shop
As you stroll down Buena Vista street take a quick trip inside Kingswell Camera Shop for this machine which currently has my favorite designs in this special collection. The coins have images of Steamboat Willie, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Classic Minnie Mouse, and the beautiful Storytellers Statue.
** Variant / Error Steamboat Willie Design **
We have been notified of an error / variant version of the Steamboat Willie coin. As you can see in the above comparison pictures take a close look at the (C) Disney along the bottom. Similar to the Stitch Error Coin below, it seems like the coin with the missing (C) Disney along the bottom was part of the initial batch of coins released. Guests that have purchased this coin more recently seem to be getting the corrected coin. Be sure to check out your own collection, you may have one of the limited error versions of this coin.
The Collector’s Warehouse (Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout)
Inside the Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout gift shop called The Collector’s Warehouse is the Marvel themed set of souvenir medallions. There are coins with Groot, Spiderman, Black Panther and Captain America available in this location.
Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff
Back in the newly renovated Pixar Pier the next machine is located inside Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff candy store. As I’m sure you can guess here we find some Pixar themed designs including Woody & Buzz, Joy Sadness & Bing Bong, Joe Gardner & Soul Cat, and Miguel & Dante.
Downtown Disney District
World of Disney Store
If you are visiting the Downtown Disney District there are a few machines here. Currently two are inside the huge World of Disney store. The first machine has coin designs of Anna & Elsa, Princess Jasmine & her Tiger Raja, Snow White & her Forest Friends, and Mulan & Mushu.
The second machine inside the World of Disney store has some more famous duos on the coin designs available in this machine including Mirabel & Bruno, Lilo & Stitch, Simba Timon & Pubmaa, and Peter Pan Wendy & Tinker Bell.
** Variant / Error Stitch Design **
It has been brought to our attention that there was an error / variant version of the Stitch coin. As you can see in the above comparison pictures take a close look at the (C) Disney along the bottom. It seems like many collectors that were among the first to acquire this design may have received the error version. Many collectors I have spoken to that have just recently picked up this coin seem to have received the corrected version. I’m not sure if any are still available inside the machine at this time, but I’m sure once it was noticed they were probably pulled quickly. Be sure to check out your own collection, you may have one of the limited error versions of this coin.
Inside the Disneyland Hotel is another souvenir medallion machine hosting some classic coin designs of Dumbo & Timothy Mouse, Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket, Mowgli & Baloo, and Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey.
Grand Californian Hotel & Spa
Over at the wonderful Grand California Hotel & Spa you can find another collectible medallion machine with coin designs of Bambi & Thumper, Sven & Olaf, Lady & the Tramp, and Lumiere & Cogsworth.
Pixar Place Hotel – Temporary Lobby
The final location is inside the Pixar Place Hotel. A special thank you to Elizabeth Borgen for helping to clarify how to access this location, she says you will need to enter from the back of the hotel near the parking garage into the temporary lobby to find the medallion machine that has some Pixar themed coins available with designs of the Luxo Jr Lamp & Luxo Ball, Wall-E & Eve, Nemo & Dory, and the Incredibles Family.

Shouldn’t we expect the same medallions in both DW and DL as these medallions are not resort specific?
Oh Wait. Should have read your whole post. This medallions are marked specifically marked DisneyLand. So if you are completist and want all medallions from both DL and DW you could be looking at upwards of 160 medallions. LOL
Yes, that is going to be quite a task for anyone looking to get everyone’s medallion released for the 100th. I am curious to see if WDW gets some special designs that are different from Disneyland. But I have a feeling the main design will be the same for both, and only the reverse image will be different. Shouldn’t be too long before we find out.
Wow! Super excited. But I have decided I will only collect Chip and Dale. They’re my favorite characters. I do want the Disneyland and WDW. Not sure how I’ll get Disneyland. But I have to have them. Thank you for your posts.
I will be in DL in May I may possibility be able to pick them up for you and ship them to you
Oh my goodness, Jodi S. Yes, please!!! Not sure how I can contact you. David has my information. I live in Florida. Do you live in the sunshine state too? I will be happy to pay for S&H.
– David…. How can I share my info with Jodi S. Would you be able to share my email?
Where in DL can you buy the coin book?? How much was the book?
The book is $24.99 and seems to be quite hard to find right now. I think most of the initially released stock was purchased pretty quickly. I have heard that some periodically appear in the park gift shops like It’s a Small World and the Emporium, World of Disney in Downtown Disney, and inside the gift shops at Disney-owned hotels. I’m sure more will become available soon. Hopefully, if someone sees them along their travels, they can keep us posted here as I’m sure many other collectors are also interested in them.
So glad you posted this. Right now we are expecting the 100th coins around 4/01 when the 50th ends and right now the 100th collector books are plenty in DW. I’m gonna stock up on them now before that happens here in DW. Thank you for the heads up!
I just received some messages that the Disneyland version of the 100th Anniversary Medallion storage booklets are back in stock at the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney and some of the gift shops in both parks. Good luck!!
