Machine for stamping souvenir coins. Elongated coins or souvenir coins are coins that have been elongated (flattened or stretched) and embossed with a new design with the purpose of creating a commemorative or souvenir token.

See  Elongated coin.



The machines usually belong to manufacturers.

Some machines can be reached 24/7. Others are tied to opening hours, such as parks, shops, zoos, etc.

There are internet forums where the collectors manage the status of the machines. Like http://www.elongated-coin.de (europe) or http://www.pennycollector.com/ (amerika/worldwide)
