It’s been hard to keep up with all the new pressed coins being made available throughout the Disneyland park. These past few days have seen five new machines (15 coins) put on stage and I figured it would be easiest to go over them all in one post.
First over in Adventureland is the Bazaar souvenir shop. Inside this location is 3 machines in total but on this visit we are just focusing on two of them.
As you can see in the above picture this first new set is all inspired by one of my personal favorite movie franchises (and a great ride in Disneyland by the way) Indiana Jones. The designs on these coins are the Indiana Jones Logo, Indy’s Hat and Whip, and Indy’s Hat and Whip with Crossed Swords.
Here’s a shot of the backstamp which is also pretty cool. The Disneyland parks always have really nice designs on the back of most of their pressed coins.
The second machine at the Bazaar was kind of surprising since they are available before the movie has been released. These designs are all about the new Disney animated movie Moana and include images of the star Moana, Maui, and Pau.
Another really great backstamp. Wish they would do this more over in the Florida parks.
With Adventureland behind us we head over toward Frontierland where we find the Bonanza Outfitters store. This is where the next new set of pennies can be found.
Unfortunately the pennies I received were a little worse for wear and are kind of hard to see. These designs include images of Cowboy Donald, Cowboy Mickey and Cowboy Goofy.
Before leaving this park we had one last stop over in Tomorrowland at the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blaster attraction.
The machine is actually located at the exit to the ride so you don’t necessarily have to go on the ride to use this machine.
These designs are updated images of similar coins that used to be available here. These definitely have more detail and press really nicely. You can also see the attraction logo below which is on the back of each coin.
The last two machine (for now) takes us out of the Disneyland Park and over to Downtown Disney and more specifically the World of Disney Store. This is the same location that has seen a lot of new pennies come and go over the last year.
The first set here has images of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy in some nice new designs.
The second new machine here has designs of Winnie the Pooh, Dumbo, and Pinocchio. Both of these sets have the same backstamp shown below.
Whew, always fun but a little hectic when this many new coins show up. But I’m not complaining and am always up for the challenge. Stay tuned as I already heard of a few more machines that will be out very soon.
