Collecting mementos from places you visit is something that keeps the memories alive. One of the cheapest and most practical ways of snatching mementos from your journey is finding a penny squisher machine, better known as pressed penny machines. I always called them squisher machines.

Where to Find Pressed Penny Machines Across the U.S.

Pressed Penny Machines will take a penny that you put into the machine and squish it into an elongated coin and embosses a design featuring the place you found it. If you are a penny squisher coin collector, you can find these machines all over the U.S. Keep in mind that these machines generally cost 50 cents to use.

I can remember growing up everywhere we would go we would look for these machines. We would get so excited to use them, then the dreaded “I don't have quarters”, ugh it got us almost every time.
