They started to be popular I believe in the 1970's. You'd put your penny in a machine and pay the machine to flatten it with an inscription. They are still around at the tourist places.

I agree with Smokey. Looks like the penny is all copper, so that would make the coin itself pre-1983 but of course coins of all years circulate so it could have been pressed fairly recently or 40 years ago.
