When Disney Cruise Line’s terminal at Port Canaveral reopened following renovations, a new pressed coin machine was added with all new designs. There are a total of eight designs to collect, including two versions for both Captain Minnie and Captain Mickey.
At this time, the Disney Cruise Line coin press machine is located on the opposite side wall of the terminal from the previous location of the original 6-design press penny machine. Installed in 2013, the original machine has been removed from the terminal with the original designs retired.
As you enter the waiting area on on the second floor, the coin press will be located along a wall near the entrance to the outside observation deck, on the back right opposite the Mickey entrance to the gangway.
This machine is of the newer variety which does not accept your own penny blanks. You simply pay for the pennies by inserting cash or by swiping a credit card, or by tapping a smartphone with set up with digital payments.
You can buy all 8 designs for $5 or individual coins for $1 each. Yes, this is up from the old machine which ran 51¢/per design. However, this is on par with type of machine when found at the theme parks.
I am calling the latest set of Disney Cruise Line pressed penny collectables Series 2. The series 2 set includes three horizontal designs and 5 vertical designs. The first, features the traditional Disney Cruise Line logo and name.
Captain Minnie is featured in a vertical impression, as well as a headshot on a horizontal coin.
Nearly identical to Minnie, Captain Mickey is also featured on both a vertical and horizontal coins.
Rounding out the new series 2 Disney Cruise Line pressed penny collectables are Chip ‘n Dale, Donald Duck, and Pluto.
