Fun Facts: The first coin press appeared at the World's Columbian Exposition held in Chicago USA in 1892-93 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Columbus's discovery of America. It was a hand-cranked model turned by the operator - not the customer.
Welcome to Press-a-Penny
People have been pressing pennies for over 100 years, and they are highly collectable. Enthusiasts collect and trade their pressed pennies just as one would with minted coins, sports cards, or postage stamps. You can check out some of the enthusiast websites on our links page.
Penny presses are among the highest revenue earners of any coin-operated vendor on a per-square-foot basis, allowing you a handsome profit and will advertise your location for many years after. When was the last time your advertising paid you ahead of time?
At Press-A-Penny we have the most profitable and most dependable penny press machine available. The machine we offer for sale is the very same machine that is operated everyday at some of North America’s busiest tourist attractions and theme parks.
We can set up our presses to take foreign coins such as pesos or euros. In 2013 we are making available presses that imprint both sides of the coin so customers receive a two-sided souvenir, ask us about the 2-sided option.
