Turn Ordinary Pennies into Collectible Memories

by Ark Encounter on September 28, 2017

We are excited to announce that we have recently installed three new penny press machines at the Ark Encounter. These allow you to turn your pennies into collectible memories. From the Ark to Noah and from the zip lines to an ostrich, each machine features four designs with popular themes and attractions representing your Ark Encounter experience.

Penny Press Machine

Fun For All Ages

With a hand-crank device that is fun for all ages, you can press your pennies in three simple steps. First, turn the handle until the red arrow for your desired engraving lines up with the “Your Engraving” arrow.

Next insert two quarters and a penny into the machine. Then turn the handle six to eight times until your penny slides into the dish below.
