What are pressed pennies?

Pressed pennies are so much fun ! I remember being a child and being absolutely enthralled by these machines that take a penny, flatten it, and reprint an effigy on it.

Pressed pennies are actual pennies that are placed into a special mold and flattened and then stamped with a new imprint.
For more than a hundred, coin presses have been delighting children and adults alike with their “ magic. ” They are a fun, cost effective way to remember a new place you ’ ve visited ! Pressed pennies cost anywhere between .50 to $ 1.00, plus the penny. There are besides press quarters available, which cost .75 to $ 1.00, plus the quarter .
The best pennies to use for pressing are from 1982 or earlier, as these are made from 95 % copper. These pennies come out better than pennies produced after 1982 .
There are two types of press penny machines in Walt Disney World. There are a few classic, hand-cranked presses, where you pay with coins and provide the penny yourself .
however, you are more probable to find the second type : the newfangled digital presses where you pay with dollar bills, batting order or your smartphone. Disney will provide the penny for you. Most of the digital weigh machines accept VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Google Pay.

Our experience

My children love pressing pennies, so we decided to start saving up our pennies and quarters ampere soon as we booked our Disney vacation .
We were then activated to find our beginning pressed penny machine of our trip ! The girls inserted their pennies, chose their designs, and cranked the rack ! unfortunately, this was the one of the few times we used our giant bag of pennies on the trip !
Most other machines we found provided the penny for you already. many machines allowed you to pay with cash or accredit circuit board, and you hit a button to choose your design. A few machines had you pay with cash or accredit card, but you still had to crank the wheel to get to your design .
The girls preferred putting their own pennies in the most, but they were happy to at least crank the steering wheel. They were a sting underwhelmed when the machine did all of the work for them. But, they were so excited with the final result penny !
We stopped to get pennies from every machine we happened upon, but our favorites are from our favorite family rides.

What to do with your pennies once you are home?

urge pennies make a fun keepsake, but what can you do with that pile of pennies ? We decided to display ours ! We made a playfulness expose out of our pennies, which puts a smile on my face each time I pass it.

Pressed Penny Mickey Display

If you ’ d like to try making your own, it is easier than it looks!
I started with a shadow box and some white tacky mounting putty. I chose flannel putty because I was using a ashen backdrop, and that made the putty less noticable if it stuck out from behind the penny .
set one penny in the lower center sphere of the paper you are mounting the pennies on to start the large Mickey heading circle. Don’t put the putty on the pennies even ! Save that for after you have the placement precisely right .
then, place the pennies around the center one in a circle. Continue expanding out the encircle to make the Mickey head angstrom large as you want it to be .
Repeat these steps for each Mickey auricle. After some trial and error, I found that it was best to use two pennies in the concentrate for the ear .
Circle the pennies around the two concentrate pennies for ampere large as you want the ears to be !
After you have the placement just right, begin picking up each penny one by one and putting the brassy putty on the bottom. then place the penny down precisely where you picked it up from .
I found it was easiest to start right in the center again and follow the lapp convention I originally made. This way I made certain to put tacky putty on each penny !

After you place the brassy putty on each penny, place the Mickey head display into the shadow box, and hang it somewhere will it will make you smile !
