I Pressed a Penny, Now What?


Many people have returned home from their vacations and have either gone back to school or are getting ready to resume normal life.  Perhaps you went to a touristy destination and pressed a few pennies at a souvenir machine.  If you're like me, you press the pennies in the excitement of the moment and then don't know what to do with them when you get home.  This is the post for you!

First, if you're new to penny pressing, here are a few resources:

Pressed Penny Collectors website which lists all the known coin pressing machines in the world.  So cool!  I had so much fun looking up places near us to see what machines we haven't visited or missed.  I think it would be a good idea to visit them before an outing so we can plan to get a pressed penny.


Experimenting with Cleaning the Pennies allows you to combine vacation preparations with science.  This would be great for homeschoolers, too.



Get this Metal Punch to put holes in the pressed pennies.  Perfect for craft projects where you want to hang them or connect them together.


1- Shadow Box- drop them in

2- Coffee Table- a museum collection

3- Bracelet- where your travels
