Ashwolf65 Posted December 3, 2022 Share Posted December 3, 2022 I have noticed a category dedicated to "Penny Smashers" or elongated coin machines as they are called. Would anyone be interested in a category listing the locations of the distributors of tourist tokens or medals? They are very popular in France (Monnaie de Paris) and Poland (Zlota Polska), but unfortunately the maps on the official sites are far from accurate. In Poland I had to turn back almost two kilometers from the place figuring on the map. I have found the distributor only with the help of a local. In Paris this spring I only managed to find more than half of the machines in the places that I have visited. And there were other token distributors from other producers that you can only locate by chance. I think the tourist tokens make for great souvenirs of the places I visit and all the friends that started collecting them cannot stop. If there are more geocachers and waymarkers that feel this way, maybe we could help each other by publishing the exact locations, availability, times, prices and so on. What do you think?
