I'm the dork in our family that loves the pressed pennies! I always take pennies from the year we go. I've done a few quarters and would love to do the dimes next time I get there! If I don't get myself anything else as a souvenir, at least I have my pennies!

I started collecting pressed pennies just back in April 2008 at Disney. I have 2 full books already. Recently I've started collecting them from other places as well. My dad just brought me home one from London last night!!! I pressed pennies!

My ambition was always to collect one of each of the monorail resort pennies and mount them in a custom designed wood plaque (sort of bas relief version of a typical resort map). I didn't get around to collecting the pennies last trip and I instantly regretted it.

Anybody know how Canadian pennies come out? Better, worse than modern US ones?

Pressed pennies are my favorite souvenir from any vacation. I take old prescription bottles (take off the labels) and put layers of two quarters and then a penny. Then when I find a penny machine I just shake out the quarters and penny. It saves so much time searching.

Canadian pennies are better than newer US pennies, but about on par with the old US pennies. I brought a few with me to Epcot and used them for the Canada pavilion pennies. I felt like such a nerd, but they turned out really well!

That's a good idea! I used to use old film canisters because they were the perfect size for quarters and liked the way the lids snapped on and off, but you can't really find those anymore.

LOL. I used to do the same thing, but started using prescription bottles because film canisters were unavailable.

We're hooked on this also. Love finding new machines and completing sets. For thos who have not seen this site, here is a listing of where to find the pressed pennies in WDW. http://www.presscoins.com/
It was updated in May 2010 so, pretty much up to date.

We have filled two Books with Disney and a couple more non-disney.

Enjoy!

I just started collecting pressed pennies on my last trip in April. I didn't buy a book though (silly me), so they are now in my pressed penny tube......

I don't have the little books either, what I do is keep them in a binder! You can buy little cardboard holders with oval cutouts for the pennies, and plastic 3-ringed sheets that hold them.

http://www.jpscorner.com/2x2_Holders.htm
http://www.jpscorner.com/Vinyl_Noteb...ges_Binder.htm

They're very cheap, and look really nice! Also great because you can write on the cardboard around the penny. Where you got it, when you got it, etc.

many pennies

I love making pressed pennies at the park. I think I spent more on the pennies than actual souvenirs!! Have fun!

Even better than that are the M&M minis tube containers. They are about twice the height as a film canister and the right size for quarters. The lid is also attached. And it's not bad emptying them out either

Hmm, do they even sell M&M minis anymore? If so I'll have to be on the lookout! They're pretty tasty, too. :D
