I was having a sort through some old boxes of bits and pieces that I've collected over the years and I found an envelope full of pressed pennies. I don't even remember when I did this :lol: I'm assuming it would have been on our first or second trip as the napkins are actually for WDW not for Disney Parks :D

Has anyone else collected the pressed pennies and what did you do with them?

Are the pressed penny machines still there?

We have a random few from years, and years ago. Not sure if they are still there. I've not looked for any in ages. I know there were some pressed quarter machines too.

There were books you could buy to keep them in. One of those ideas that sounded nice but never really took off with us.

Caitlin collects them and puts them in the holders that you can buy there, i save our change from previous trips and give her a bag at the start of the holiday. :thumbsup:

I have a bunch too. I haven't collected any in a while though. They're just fun to have and look at. I have one of the books too.

I made a list somewhere, but can't find it. But I did find my penny press collection book, and I think I got some last year from splash mountain, rock n roller coaster, chef Mickey and some country's in Epcot

They are EVERWHERE! We gave the kids bags of coins last October and let them go crazy with the pennies :yes: They loved looking for "people they knew" on the pennies and that is how they would pick. We had breakfast at Chef Mickey's and I know near the elevators they had a few pressed quarter machines :yes: I think just about every major ride, store, and resort has pressed pennies :yes:

I was tidying Steven's room a while back and found a pressed penny from Kennedy Space Center. :unsure:

We've got some here from our holiday to Devon, i need to get something to put them in otherwise they are going to get lost!

We went to Bristol Zoo one day earlier in the year and there was a lady there getting really snotty that the pressed penny machine wasnt working. I asked her if it had taken her money as it wasnt in the slot but the penny was which was really strange - anyway, eventually i got her to understand that actually you have to pay to get your 1p pressed!! Aint nothing free in this life lady!!!
