Penny Smasher/Coin Press on CC?

Anyone know if CC has one? I've already heard that the Fantasy does not.

There are no penny presses at Castaway Cay. I'm certain being close to the water reaks havoc on the workings.

Not anymore

They had one the first time we cruised, but have not seen one the last few cruises. They had generic impressions and nothing specific to the cruise or castaway cay.

Here is some information I found regarding the pressed penny machines:

There were pressed penny and pressed quarter machines on the Magic and the Wonder. The machines did not generate much revenue because of the logistics of having all the change to operate the machines on a cashless ship. The machines were removed and moved to shore, but they still exist.

DCL creates complete sets (there are three pennies and six quarters) and puts them in a nice framed case. These sets are then set out in the silent auctions that pop up on the ship.
