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!

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!

Day Two: DigThatBox.com 2011 Silver 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

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.

Day Four: DigThatBox.com 2012 Red Brass Arcade Token

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.

Day Five: DigThatBox.com 2012 Emerald Green Arcade Token

Arcade_Tokens/digthatbox-2012-emerald-green-arcade-token-b.jpg

It is now retired and is no longer available from this site.

Here is the second of two new tokens we have produced for our 2014 Arcade Token Give-Away. This collectible coin celebrates the Five Year Anniversary of the Arcade Token Give-Away. This exclusive Dual Metallic (Bi-Metallic) coin is made from two different metals. The outter ring is made from high quality Nickel Silver. The inner circle is made from traditional Yellow Brass.

Day Ten: DigThatBox.com 2015 Sapphire Blue E3 Expo Arcade Token

Arcade_Tokens/2015-Red-Arcade-Token.jpg

Arcade_Tokens/2015-Red-Arcade-Token.jpg

Here is the first of two new tokens we produced for our 2015. This Sapphire Blue collectible coin was made with the highest quality materials. The front of the coin features our classic Pixel Invader logo. The B-Side of the coin features a brand new design celebrating the E3 Expo in Los Angeles. Here's a little bit of interesting trivia about this coin. The E3 Expo is actually the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or just E3 for short. However, it is unofficially called the "E3 Expo" even though the "expo" part is unnecessary as it is already part of the E3 title. The show is often referred to as the E3 Expo to avoid confusion with other brands using E3 in their title. For example there is an E3 Ranch in Fort Scott, Kansas. So this is why E3 is often called the E3 Expo. Even on the official E3 Facebook page the show is called the "E3 Expo." We thought it would be fun to pay honor to this great unspoken tradition. It's something that only veterans of the show know about, and now, so do you.

Day Eleven: DigThatBox.com 2015 Ruby Red E3 Expo Arcade Token

Arcade_Tokens/2015-Red-Arcade-Token.jpg

Arcade_Tokens/2015-Red-Arcade-Token.jpg

Here is the second of two new tokens we produced for our 2015. This Rube Red collectible coin was as the companion piece to our Sapphire Blue coin. Once again the front of the coin features our classic Pixel Invader logo, and the B-Side of the coin features a brand new design celebrating the E3 Expo in Los Angeles. Both the Ruby Red and Sapphire Blue coins were limited to 1000 units each. Both coins have now been retired and are no longer available from this site.
