I have decided to start a pressed penny collection. I understand that they have added 50 designs for the Anniversary. I guess the goal is to get them all. Just like seeing all the hidden 50 Mickeys.
First question. Are the machines easy to find, or are they hidden away in corners? I do have a list of the locations. Having never been to Disneyland before, that may be a problem, only for me, not for the frequent Disneyland visitor.
Second Question. Will I be able to purchase the pressed penny books in Disneyland Park, or Downtown Disney? I am assuming, that they probably have special ones for the 50th. What can I expect to pay for one of these? I am assuming I most probably will need more than one.
My grandson collects pins, and that can get quite costly. He has his own spending money for those. I decided that pressing pennies would be a fun extra activity for us. We are visiting Disneyland for the first time from the 16th of July to the 22nd. I am smart enough to realize that the crowds will mosty likely be out of control. This pressed penny project is not a "do or die thing" Just thought of it as an interesting side thing.
So I would appreciate any tips, that anyone can provide on this interesting hobby. My pennies are all cleaned, and my quarters are packed. I will come with enough for the 50, and see what evolves. That change can get pretty heavy in my carryon.
Thanks for any info on this.
