DigThatBox.com To Give Away Limited Edition Collectible Arcade Tokens at E3 Expo 2014 and Online

HOLLYWOOD, CA June 1st, 2014 – DigThatBox.com proudly announces the 2014 Collectible Arcade Token Give-Away. In honor of the 5th anniversary of the Arcade Token Give-away the site has created two brand new coins to celebrate the event.

The first new coin is a high quality Copper Version of the extremely popular Space Battle Arcade Token. This is the highest quality Copper token ever produced by this site. This new Copper token joins the Gold and Silver versions that were released in 2013. This completes the official Space Battle Trilogy.

The second new collectible coin is a Bi-Metallic Five Year Anniversary Coin featuring a special new logo design celebrating this momentous occasion. The awesome new coin is made with a combination of two metals, nickel silver and yellow brass. This new dual metal coin is the most expensive and luxurious collectible token ever created by the site. It will only be made available one time and quantities are extremely limited.

Members of the site will be giving away these beautifully crafted custom made arcade tokens at the 2014 E3 Expo, the Classic Gaming Expo and the Portland Retro Gaming Expo. These highly collectible coins will also be made available through an online promotion.

Since the beginning of this unique promotion DigThatBox.com has distributed over 13,000 arcade tokens worldwide. Tokens have been sent to all 50 of the United States and to 35 different countries around the globe. This site has produced seven different coins since the give-away began in 2009. The first five coins featured the Classic Invader, known worldwide as the universal symbol of video games. Last year the Classic Invader coin was retired and the new Space Battle Token was born. The Space Battle Token series has been the most popular and successful collectible ever produced by this site.

Both the Space Battle Token and the Five Year Anniversary Coin feature the original works of artist Christian George-Morehouse based on the vision of DigThatBox.com founder Elliott S. Thomas. The pair has worked together on every coin in the Dig That Box Collection.

The new Copper Space Battle Token features the sleek “Attack Fighter” on one side, while the reverse side features the deadly “Pixel Invader.” The text around the logo reads “Dig That Box.com Can You Dig It?” The Copper token completes the trilogy of Gold, Silver and Copper. This coin is limited to run of just 1000 units and will only be made available one time.

The new Bi-Metallic Five Year Anniversary Arcade Token is the most expensive token ever produced by this site. It uses a combination of two metals in its design. The outer ring is high quality Nickel and the inner ring is classic Yellow Brass. The front of the new coin features the infamous Pixel Invader, the official Mascot of DigThatBox.com. The reverse side of the coin features a brand new logo celebrating the Five Year Anniversary of the Arcade Token Give Away.

These beautiful and unique collectible coins are produced in co-operation with Osborne Coinage®. These freshly minted coins are made right here in the USA.
 

DigThatBox.com will also be giving away tokens to its loyal online readers through a global mail order give-away. Additional details for the online give-away will be released on June 5th, 2014.
