ONTARIO

NIAGARA FALLS, CANADA

Niagara Falls is the anti-Disney.  Disney takes an artificial concept and makes it as good as they can.  Niagara Falls, Ontario, takes a natural beauty and does whatever it can to harm the experience.  READ MORE  I have limited quantities of these coins because it can be so frustrating to get them.

 

Machines are being removed from the Niagara Falls area because of the loss of the penny in Canada.  The locations with tokens seem to be maintaining their presence.

 

 

 

WELLAND CANALS CENTRE

St. Catharine’s, Ontario

 

ON01.Welland.jpg

 

There is a single coin at the visitor center/museum at Lock 3 (there are 8 locks along the 27-mile canal connecting Lakes Erie and Ontario).  The machine supplies its own blank token, which is slightly larger than a penny. 

 

Design: Great Lakes freighter.

Rainforest-Cafe-logo-222x180.jpg

RAINFOREST CAFÉ

Niagara Falls, Ontario

 

ON03.RFb.jpg

The Rainforest Café on Clifton Hill has a setup similar to the Great Wolf Lodge outside of town.  A change machine distributes loonies with a token (same as used at the Welland Canal and Souvenir City machines) that you insert into the penny press.  You can even put a loonie (dollar coin) in the change machine and get a loonie plus a token. 

Some websites advise you to bring your own penny to press.  That would be a mistake.  READ MORE

Complete set of 4 rolled on tokens.  Designs: frog; leopard; parrot; elephant in a barrel.

WHITE WATER WALK

Niagara Falls, Ontario

 

ON05.whitewaterwalkB.jpg

 

Complete set of 4.  These are rolled on circulated coins supplied by the machine.  The coins are typically zinc U.S. cents, although I have seen an occasional pre-1982 copper cent pop up.

 

The key word is “circulated.”  As you can see, they are not pretty.  This is a representative set, but all of the coins are flawed to various degrees. 

 

Designs: White Water Walk; Horseshow Falls, Canada; maple leaf; crossed flags.

TABLE ROCK WELCOME CENTRE

NIAGARA FURY

Niagara Falls, Ontario

 

ON08.FuryB.jpg

 

There are ordinarily three machines at the Table Rock Welcome Centre, which is the government-owned visitor center closest to the falls. 

 

Niagara Fury is a simulation attraction.  A machine outside the second-floor ticketing area had four designs pressed on circulated U.S. cents supplied by the machine.

 

The machine supplies the U.S. cents used to roll the coins; they are circulated coins, and almost always zinc pennies.  The photo shows a representative set, but all coins will be circulated and show flaws from dirt, staining, and handling.

 

Designs: Niagara Fury; Horseshoe Falls; Niagara Falls with Hornblower boat (may be the same design as in set #ON06, but a different die at a different machine); crossed flags.

 

As of February 2017, all machines at Table Rock are reportedly gone.

TABLE ROCK WELCOME CENTRE

FOOD COURT

Niagara Falls, Ontario

 

ON09.tablerockB.jpg

 

Set of 4 from the food court machine on the 1st floor of the visitor center.  The hand-crank machine has room for four dies, but one is blocked out (it was a “Maid of the Mist” design for the boat tour, but the company conducting the tours has changed to Hornblower).  The Maid of the Mist die is still on the machine, but most collectors probably skip right past it.

 

The machine supplies the U.S. cents used to roll the coins; they are circulated coins, and almost always zinc pennies.  The photo shows a representative set, but all coins will be circulated and show flaws from dirt, staining, and handling.

HENRY FORD MUSEUM

Dearborn, Michigan

 

Rosa Parks bus set pressed on circulated British 6-pence coins.  The 6p coin is thinner than a penny, so all coins roll short.  Designs: Rosa Parks bus; JFK limo; Allegheny locomotive; Lincoln’s chair from Ford’s Theatre.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wienermobile set pressed on circulated 1943 steel U.S. cents.  Due to the strength of steel, these roll a bit short as the machine is calibrated for softer copper and zinc coins.  These coins show signs of wear.  The date is generally shown on the reverse.  These coins have a clear paint coating to prevent rust. We recommend you place them in Mylar 2x2 holders to help prevent any future deterioration. Do not allow these to get wet! Designs: Wienermobile; Ford Mustang; Tucker; Ford GT.

OHIO TURNPIKE – Mahoning Valley service plaza

Westbound mile marker 237

 

Complete set of 4 pressed on new zinc pennies dispensed by the machine.  These roll off-centered - I have not found any of the turnpike machines rolling with well-centered designs.  They have a high price point at the machine, the machines are slow as all get-out (as my mom would say), and they are only available on zinc, so I have no current plans to stock other locations along the turnpike.
