These elongated souvenirs are produced with the PNNA's elongating machine at the annual spring convention in Tukwila, Washington. The quantity produced is estimated at a few hundred annually, mostly on cents but sometimes on other coins. Copper cents (instead of copper plated zinc) are used whenever possible to give a higher-quality product.

As usual, a few elonagted coins with these designs may have been produced using coins other than cents, including foreign coins. In addition, a few intentional "errors" may also have been produced, for example, with only part of the original coin elongated. For the two-sided coins (made with two dies), a few samples and/or test pieces are typically made with only one die (and a blank pressed reverse, which may show remnants of the original cent).
