This is a fantastic museum in downtown Toronto just a couple blocks from Union Station.  A coin press makes three designs on bright brass tokens supplied by the machine.  The tokens are slightly larger than a penny.  Designs: caboose; Cabin D (an interlocking tower); 1896 Don Station (a relocated train station).

OF THE CN TOWER MACHINES

 

ON17.CNTower.EN.jpg

Obverse: English

 

Reverse: French

 

Perhaps the most famous structure in Toronto, the CN Tower has several coin presses but most are duplicate designs.  Out of 4 machines (16 coins), 7 are unique designs. 

 

We pressed a small quantity on uncirculated U.S. nickels at the locations, eliminating the duplicate designs.  Three have the same artwork but mention different elevation levels for various features of the CN Tower (the SkyPod, the Glass Floor, and the Lookout.

 

These are inscribed in French on one side and English on the other.  Photos show both sides – you are buying 7 coins.  The frosted look on two coins is the result of lighting – they have the same look as the other coins.  Note that some roll short.

 

We were only able to roll 2 sets for selling.

 

These machines are all reportedly retired.

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.

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.

 

Designs: Horseshoe Falls; maple leaf; CN Tower (Toronto); Maid of the Mist

 

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

THE CHICAGO COIN SHOWS

 

Annual conventions of the American Numismatics Association and the Central States Numismatic Society are held in the Chicago area, creating great opportunities for collectors to build their collections – not to mention the prevalence of penny presses throughout the Chicago area.  Attending the CSNS show in April (in Schaumburg) and the ANA World’s Fair of Money in August (Rosemont-O’Hare) are highlights of my year.

INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL PARK

Porter, Indiana

 

IN20.IndianaDunes5.jpg

 

A new machine in 2021 has 5 all-new designs to replace a retired 4-die machine.  Rolled on uncirculated copper cents.  The 6th coin in the photo shows the backstamp common to each coin – you will receive 5 coins.

INDIANA DUNES

 

IN11.Dunes.jpg

copper.jpg retired.png

 

A machine was installed at the visitor center in early 2019.  Owned by the local Rotary Club, the machine had previously been in various local businesses in the Chesterton, Indiana, area. 

 

Designs: Indiana Dunes logo; Babapaloosa logo (a local event); Chesterton’s Thomas Centennial Park; Octave Chanute – Pioneer of Flight in the Dunes.

 

These coins are pressed on copper pennies that have been cleaned but can still show streaks and toning.  The designs roll slightly short, cutting off some wording on the borders. This machine is extremely temperamental – I visited three times before being able to finally press an entire set.

 

This machine was reported retired in mid-2021.

AMISH ACRES

NAPPANEE, INDIANA

 

Amish Acres was a shopping and amusement center in the heart of Indiana’s Amish country.  It closed in 2019 when the old owner wanted to retire but couldn’t find a single buyer.  Parts of the complex were sold at auction, and new owners have pledged to continue some of its operations, perhaps under a different name.  We arranged to purchase the 4 designs from their penny press rolled on pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters.  When set up at Amish Acres, the machine only pressed pennies, but the other denominations were rolled by the machine’s owner after its removal from the shopping center.

We are selling these as circulated coins. The pennies definitely show signs of being pressed on circulated copper cents.  The nickels, dimes & quarters range from shiny uncirculated coins to an occasional coin showing some wear/patina.

KALAHARI RESORT – machine #2

Wisconsin Dells

 

WI12.Kalahari.mach2.jpg

ro

Kalahari has 5 penny presses, according to Pennycollector.com.  During my late April visit, I could find only two penny presses (plus the medallion machine).  Some may be located beyond paid areas (such as the water park).  I will check again in June.

 

Pennycollector machine #2 has 4 designs and takes our copper pennies, so this set is pressed on uncirculated pre-1982 copper cents.  This machine has a higher price, so we must charge more.

 

Designs: Indian head; Stand Rock; Kalahari logo; “My friends went to Wisconsin Dells and all I got was this lousy penny”
