Pressed pennies

I have noticed that pressed pennies some places around the country are $1.00. Are they still .51 at WDW?

I don't think I have seen any pressed pennies more than $.51. The pressed quarter machines are more.

The New England Aquarium here in MA charges $1.00 to press a penny. If I'm not mistaken, the Boston Garden (or whatever it's called now) does too.

I don't remember where it was at now but we were traveling and I saw a pressed penny machine that charges a $1.OO. I thought at first it was a quarter. Needless to say we didn't do that pressed penny!!!!

Most of them seem to be 51 cents; only the pressed quarters cost more. I'm sure they're making money hand over fist on them anyway!

Sorry for the confusion Darlene. I meant I had not seen pressed pennies for more than $.51 at WDW.

Okay, thanks for pointing that out. And I agree, I too have not seen pennies for more than 51 cents at Disney (or Sea World).

Has anyone ever seen different pressed pennies for the Star Wars Weekends? I found some old links that had lists of which pressed pennies are where that seem to still exist, but no current information.

I use Presscoins.com - they're the most up to date of what is available and where since they publish a new list several times a year. That last one that I know of is only from February of this year and in the past, they've done one in May as well.
