Elongated Coins

Another popular area of collecting is the field of elongated coins. These are usually cents, dimes, and quarters that have been rolled through pressing machines and imprinted with various pictures. Most are cents, but the others do occur.

This all started in the early part of the 20th century, and is found in other countries besides the U.S. The non-U.S. coins are far more scarce.

You will find them from many of the World's Fairs and Expos. Currently the Disney parks create quite a lot of them. Some are very scarce and expensive. Most are very affordable.

Visit our pressed coin pages and see for yourself. We are trying constantly to increase the selection and variety, and we will continue to do so.
