    What a morning! (April 26th)

    From Jorg's collection I have now 3 new single electric design machines to report, they have been there for absolutely years.
    One at Catalist Science Centre, Widnes
    the second in Bodmin Jail, Cornwall.
    and the third Explosion Museum of Naval Firepower, Hampshire


    And that the machine at the Wellgate shopping Centre
    in Dundee has been changed .


    Weald & Downland Museum was visited by Michael and Isobel. It is what Souvenir Pennies call their 'Classic' machine.
    It is located in the gift shop, no payment required to access it.



    Well this is indeed bad news. All the machines have been removed from London and Whipsnade Zoos. No explantion has been given, just no longer on site. Which is a shame, moreso because I havevn't been able to visit and get the new designs at ZSL. So, if anyone has a spare set????   


    Discovered because of Jörg's website I've found there is a single die machine at the National Aquarium Galway
    The machne isn't working at the moment. Hopefully news on when it is will be here soon...


    If you are interested in older UK Pennies you must have a look at Jörg Bretschneider's website. He is a collector from Germany, but has a great collection of older pennies from the Eurolink machines.
    His website is and click Linkliste
