A selection of elongated coins.

Elongated coins, or elongates, are souvenirs often available at various theme parks, and attractions, and can usually be found at LEGOLAND parks, and LEGOLAND Discovery Centre. The coins are elongated by putting pennies (or, in some cases, other coins) into a special pressing machine, and choosing a design with which to imprint them, which is then imprinted into them by a die in the machine.

Special "penny books" are also made to hold elongates, and are sometimes sold at LEGOLAND parks.
