DigThatBox.com Celebrates 7th Anniversary
with New Lucky Seven Collectible Arcade Token

Celebrating Seven Incredible Years with a Brand New Coin


Hollywood, CA – June 1st, 2016 – DigThatBox.com and DigThatBox.LLC are proud to announce the 2016 collectible arcade token giveaway. This year marks the seventh anniversary of this now legendary promotion. In honor of this historic event DigThatBox.com has created a brand new coin celebrating the seventh year of the arcade token giveaway.

The new coin is an original creation featuring all new artwork. The front of the coin features a large image of the iconic Pixel Invader. The character is well known as the official mascot of DigThatBox.com. The back of the coin sports a new Lucky Seven motif, festooned with four leaf clovers. The site hopes this new coin will bring good luck to everyone who owns it.

"Over the years the arcade token giveaway has brought tremendous joy and good fortune to everyone on our website. This year we wanted to create a coin that gives back some of the good luck this promotion has brought us in the past seven years." said Elliott S. Thomas founder of DigThatBox.com.

The coin is minted in yellow brass and its surface has a shiny golden luster. The gold Lucky Seven coin is limited to just 1000 units and is available while supplies last. This coin will only be available for a limited time and will not be distributed in any future promotion.

The new Lucky 7 coin features the original artwork of artist Christian George-Morehouse based on the creative vision of DigThatBox.com founder Elliott S. Thomas. The pair has worked together on every coin in the Dig That Box Collection.

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. They are created with only the finest, high grade, lead free materials.

DigThatBox.com started their collectible arcade token giveaway in 2010. The very first coin was presented to actor Leonard Nimoy. Since that time, the website has created 13 different coins in a variety of styles and colors. The coins have been distributed to all 50 states and to 44 different countries world wide. They have been given to celebrities, notable figures in the video game industry and are even featured in the national Video Game History Museum. Most importantly thousands of coins have been given away, for free, to friends and fans worldwide.

The new collectible coins will be made available at E3 Expo 2016, which begins on June 14th. A small number of coins will also be made available at the 2016 Portland Retro Gaming Expo. 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 3rd, 2016.
