IMG_2879.CR2.jpgWILLIS TOWER SKYDECK

 

The Sears Tower was the tallest building in the world when it was built in 1973.

 

Renamed the Willis Tower in 2009, the building has an observation deck (Skydeck) that is a major tourist attraction.  Four penny presses are located in the gift shop area.  We are able to feature complete sets from three of the machines (the fourth was out of order).  Unfortunately, this is one of the attractions in Chicago that charges top dollar for its coin sets.

 

Using the Pennycollector numering system, machines #11 & #12 press four designs on shiny zinc pennies provided by the machine.  Since the coins are supplied by the machine, we are unable to sell copper cents for machines 11 and 12.  Machine #8 is available in copper, though.

 

Machine #11 – zinc

 

Designs: Machine #11: Enjoy the View - Willis Tower; Navy Pier; Cloud Gate (popularly known as "The Bean" in Millennium Park);Barack Obama – 44th President of the U.S., all pressed on zinc pennies.
