    I'm getting conflicting reports about the pressed coins at the Beach Club. One website says that BC has a pressed coin machine with the BC logo, but another site says that only YC has the pressed coin with their logo. I'm staying at BC, so I would like a coin with the BC logo. Anyone been recently who can either confirm/deny that? TIA :thumbsup2

    I have a pressed penny from both the Yacht Club and the Beach Club and pressed quarters with the logo from each resort.

    I did not get them myself, they came from a friend who visited a couple of years ago, so I don't know what the current availability is. At the time, the machines were in the arcade. Again, I don't know if that is still the case.

    I am going to post your question over on the BC/YC FAQ board to see if anyone knows the answer about what is there now, or if someone could check on an upcoming visit.

    pennycollector.com says this is available:

    This is the location description (from 4 years ago):

    "Located outside arcade between the Yacht Club and the Beach Club.

    Machine 1: Doc 6 of 7, Beach Club logo, Princess Belle 6 of 6.
    Machine 2: Surfing Mickey, Yacht Club logo, Bashful 7 of 7.
    Machine 3: Mickey waiving
    Machine 4: Mickey looking left with hands out from sides

    3/28/09 The machines are in the Arcade next to Beaches & Cream ice cream parlor. All machines are working. The Beaches Resort quarter Machine sticks. Very hard to get the quarter tray back out."

    Thanks so much! I already subscribe to that thread, and it has been a wonderful source of information! I will check back there to see if anyone has an answer :thanks:

    Thanks for the response! That was one of the websites I had checked out, along with allears and presscoins. Every source gives different information, so it's been difficult to find out if there is actually a BC logo coin :sad:

    I feel like I may just have to wait and find out for myself :confused3

    Pennycollector.com has an app. It's really useful in the parks. The only thing missing from the app is a check list. A check list would be so helpful because there are so many machines in the parks.

    I found a bunch of different checklists on presscoins.com, so I'm thinking I might print some of those out for my trip. Here's hoping they're up to date though, I don't want to waste my time looking for machines that aren't really there LoL

    Still haven't gotten a report on the BC logo coins….anyone…anyone? Bueller? :surfweb:

    miked0292, or something like that, said he would check on his upcoming trip if he remembers.

    I definitely have two pennies, one with BC and one with YC logo and quarters with each logo, but again, they are a couple of years old.

    I will be interested in the answer to what is currently available, too!

    :)
