Welcome to our 2017 arcade token celebration! In this gallery we will be counting down to the reveal of our BRAND NEW 2017 COLLECTIBLE ARCADE TOKEN! We have been working with a talented new artist to create an amazing new collectible coin! This is definitely going to be the biggest and the best year ever for this unique event. To celebrate the eight year anniversary of the Arcade Token Giveaway we are planning a very special contest to be revealed along with our new collectible coin! It all concludes in 30 days on June 12th, the official start of E3 Expo 2017!

CONTESTS, SECRETS WORDS & PRIZES!!

Our new collectible coin will only be available at the E3 Expo and through a special mail away contest. We're also going to be giving away a ton of games and special prizes! All you have to do is keep an eye on this page. Every few days we will post a new SECRET WORD. (Roughly every three days.) For each secret word you collect you will get an additional entry into our contest. Be warned, the secret words will be DELTED after 48 hours. Collect all 10 secret words to increase your chances of winning!

The mail away program will work as it has in the past. At the end of the 30 day countdown we will reveal our new coin along with a new contact email adress. Simply send us an email along with your collection of secret words. This year the Arcade Token Giveaway will be limited to just 150 people. We will give preference to the first 100 people to enter the contest. Another 50 people will be chosen at random from the remainder of the entries.

Special Note to Arcade Token Collector Club Members:

This year our collectible coin giveaway will be going through some major changes. This means that all members of our Arcade Token Collector Club will have to renew their memberships this year. To be considered for membership you must have at least 5 of our previous collectible arcade tokens. You must send a picture of your collection along with your contest entry. This will guarantee that you receive all coins for the rest of the year. We also must limit membership in the club this year to just 50 members. If you have more than 5 coins and you show them all in your photo, you will be given preference above other members. You will also receive your coins in special coin protector packaging.

Dig That Box would like to extend our deepest and most sincere gratitude to everyone who has supported our collectible coin giveaway over the years. We couldn't have created this amazing collection of coins without your help. Our new coin marks the 16th entry in our collection! This contest gets bigger and better with each passing year. We know you are going to love our brand new coin! It will be a radical departure from the coins you have seen in the past. We're sure it's going to be a very BIG surprise! Best of luck to everyone who enters the contest!

Special thanks to our friends at Tokens Direct.

Arcade_Tokens/digthatbox_space_invader_arcade_token_b.jpg
Arcade_Tokens/digthatbox_space_invader_arcade_token_b.jpg

This is the token that started it all, our very first collectible arcade token. When we created this coin back in 2010 we wanted to use an iconic image that reprsented all of video games. Everyone on our staff agreed that the classic Space Invader was the universal symbol of video games. The image had become a rallying point for gamers around the world. It had been featured on dozens of websites, magazines, TV shows and in many other forms of art. Dedicated fans have even tattoed this image on their body. This token was created with classic Yellow Brass and was limited to 5,000 units. It is now retired and is no longer available from this site.

FUN FACT: Did you know that the very first person to receive a Dig That Box Collectible Arcade Token was none other than legendary actor Leonard Nimoy?! Read all about our encounter with Mr. Nimoy in this article from the E3 Expo. It was a huge honor to present the man who is the soul of Star Trek with the very first Dig That Box Arcade Token!

Arcade_Tokens/2011_Silver_Arcade_Token_B.JPG
In the second year of our arcade token giveaway we wanted to up the ante and produce a collectible coin of even greater value. Our Nickel Plated Coin was far more expensive to produce so we had to reduce the size of the batch. This coin was produced for only one year and limited to a run of just 3,000 units. It is now retired and is no longer available from this site.

Day Three: DigThatBox.com 2012 Copper Arcade Token

Arcade_Tokens/digthatbox-2012-copper-arcade-token-back.jpg

To celebrate the third year of our arcade token giveaway we released three brand new tokens. The first new coin was this beautiful Copper arcade token. Copper is rarely used when making arcade tokens. It has a very unique color that truly stands out against the other coins. We wanted to release this coin to complete the Classic Invader trio of Gold, Silver and Copper. This token was limited to a run of 1,000 units. It is now retired and is no longer available from this site.

Arcade_Tokens/digthatbox-2012-red-brass-arcade-token-b.jpg

Arcade_Tokens/digthatbox-2012-red-brass-arcade-token-b.jpg

This collector grade "red brass" token isn't actually red. Instead it has a highly reflective, mirror-like finish that shines like polished gold. Unlike traditional yellow brass tokens, red brass coins are heavier and more resistant to scratches and tooling marks. The higher quality material also allows for greater detail on letters and artwork. Red Brass is often used in Hollywood movies as a double for real gold. This luxurious high quality token was limited to a run of only 1000. It was the second of three new tokens produced for 2012. It is now retired and is no longer available from this site.

It's also made in 16 gauge high quality, high polish yellow brass. It shines so brightly and is so reflective we actually had a very difficult time photographing it! While the front of the coin features our new trusty mascot, the b-side of the coin will feature the logo for a popular retro gaming expo. Since we want that to be a surprise, we won't reveal the b-side until a later date. However, our lucky mail in contest winners will get the coin before it's available to the public!

This amazingly detailed coin is the start of a new tradition here at digthatbox.com. Each year our coins will feature a new design made in the 1.125 diameter size. Our coins will be bigger and better than ever before! This beautiful coin is limited to just 1000 units. Only 150 coins will be made available through our mail away program.
