New World's Biggest Mouse Party Designs
 
Sunday, February 10th, 2019
 
 

Mickey Mouse turned 90 on November 18, 2018. As part of the events and merchandise that is available to celebrate this event, five pressed pennies have recently been placed on-stage at various locations at Walt Disney World.

In the picture below the first two pennies on the top row can be found at the Newsstand and in the Verandah Breezeway outside of Island Supply at Magic Kingdom. The third coin on the top right is in a machine inside Mouse Gear at Epcot. This same machine also has a 2019 penny that was placed on-stage at the first of the year. The next two pennies on the bottom row can be found in the Disney Studio Store at Hollywood Studios and inside Disney's Pin Traders at Disney Springs.

All of these new coins have the wording of "World's Biggest Mouse Party" on them. We will also be treating these new coins as a mini set within the 2019 dated coins since one of these new designs has the year 2019 on it.

New Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Courtyard Machine Die
 
Saturday, February 9th, 2019
 
 

One of the two Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Courtyard machines at Hollywood Studios has a new die ring with two new designs. In checking machines this one would have been very easy to miss since it only looks like one of the designs has changed. The one new design has Pluto blowing a horn instead of Goofy. Closer inspection also shows that the flaming guitar design is different since the size of the guitar and flames are different. Of course, when a die ring is changed all four designs have a different die even though the design appears to be the same. Briefly inspecting the first two designs they appear to be the same as what was originally in this machine. Since we know the die is different even though the designs are the same for the first two designs, we will still assign a new catalog number to all four designs.

New Chinese Zodiac Pressed Coins
 
Saturday, January 19th, 2019
 
 

A new 12-die machine is now on-stage at Epcot in the China World Showcase Pavilion in House of Good Fortune replacing the 3-die machine that was at this location. There is a different new design for each of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals that are used to represent years. Each animal on a coin also look like various Disney characters. The year of the Rat has a character that looks like Remy from the movie Ratatouille. The year of the Monkey has an animal that looks like Abu from the move Aladdin. The remaining years also have different animals that look similar to different Disney characters.

This year is the Year of the Pig and is the twelfth of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac. The pig that is on this new design looks like Hamm from the movie Toy Story.

All 12 new designs are vertical designs with the name of the animal in English at the top and in Chinese near the animal. At the bottom of each new coin are the words "EPCOT CHINA".

Remaining 2018 Designs Have Been Replaced
 
Wednesday, January 16th, 2019
 
 

The remaining four 2018 designs have all been replaced with recently removed and retired dies.

The 2018 Main Street Railroad Station quarter design at Magic Kingdom has been replaced with the Tinker Bell design that was in the quarter machine at the Emporium when the die was replaced with a 2019 design.

The 2018 quarter design at the Contemporary Resort was replaced with the Friends 8 of 8 design with Mickey, Donald & Goofy that was removed from 1900 Park Fare at Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in July of last year. The 2018 penny design at the Contemporary Resort now has an old design from the Disney's Villains series. The design from this series is 1 of 7 with Jafar and this design was removed over five years ago in 2013 when it was located in a 3-die machine at Cap'n Jack's Oyster Bar at Downtown Disney Marketplace.

At the Yacht & Beach Club Resorts near Lafferty's Place Arcade and Beaches & Cream Soda Shop the 2018 penny design was replaced with the Pocahontas & John Smith design that was removed when the 2019 design was placed in the machine at the Polynesian Village Resort near Moana Mercantile store.

2019 Coins At Art of Animation & Polynesian Resorts
 
Friday, January 4th, 2019
 
 

New 2019 pressed coins are now at the Disney's Art of Animation and Polynesian Village Resorts. It appears that with the addition of these two coins that this will complete the installation of the Walt Disney World commemorative pressed coins for the year 2019. This year there are 9 pressed pennies and 7 quarters for a total of sixteen coins instead of the usual fifteen coins that have been available each year since 2015 due to one additional penny design this year. This year was also a little different since there were a few location changes and there are currently four 2018 coins that are still on-stage. There are quarter designs still at the Main Street Railroad Station and the Contemporary Resort with the year 2018. At the Contemporary and Yacht & Beach Club Resorts there are still 2018 pennies. We expect these four 2018 designs to either be replaced or removed within the near future.

The last two coins for 2019 are Daisy at the Arts of Animation Resort which replaces a penny design with Disney's Art of Animation Resort logo. At the Polynesian Village Resort a 2019 penny design with Minnie replaces the design with Pocahontas and John Smith that was in this machine located outside Moana Mercantile. This same design is available as a quarter at the All-Star Music Resort.
