Pressed Pennies Checklist

I know that I saw a checklist somewhere that shows all the pressed penny machines in the parks and hotels. Can someone provide a link to it?

My son filled up one of the pressed penny books on our last couple of trips and he'd like to check off what he already has so that he can continue collecting on this trip!

TIA

This may be a dumb question, but

how much is it per penny to do the pressed coins?

it costs 50cents to press the penny, then the penny you want to press

2 quarters and a penny.

Thanks for the reply. I'm gonna have a lot of change to keep up with. I like to get pressed pennies everywhere I go. (Zoos, museums, etc.)

Wow! This is amazing!

I never knew there would be so many machines. This is my first trip to WDW and I am completely blown away! My sons are going to love these.

A few months ago, I think I remembered reading on the boards that it was best to have pennies made before a certain year. Does anyone remember this information too? If so, what year was it? 1988? I think it was because the pennies were made of different metal before this year????

Thanks.

1982- has to do with the zinc content in the penny.

Does anybody know if they sell anything at wdw like those books that coin collectors put their coins in so you have a way of keeping your pressed pennies ?

There is a book to hold pressed pennies and quarters. I've seen it on the LaughingPlace website.

I'm making up a surprise bag for DS and I just got one of the Pressed Penny books off of Ebay. I paid about $10.50 for it, but when it came in, the price tag on the back said $6.75. Just an FYI...you can get them ahead of time if you want but most likely you'll be paying a few dollars more.
