DigThatBox.com Reveals Second Year Collectible Arcade Token for the Portland Retro Gaming Expo


Hollywood, CA October 18th, 2016 – DigThatBox.com is proud to announce a brand new collectible arcade token in honor of the Portland Retro Gaming Expo (PRGE). This is the second year that the website has produced a collectible coin exclusively for the show. The new token is a luxurious nickel plated silver coin. The front of the token features the iconic Pixel Invader, internationally known as the logo and official mascot of DigThatBox.com. The back of the coin features custom designed artwork celebrating the Portland Retro Gaming Expo. This coin is number 15 in the collectible arcade token series.

The coin was designed by site founder Elliott S. Thomas and Staff Artist Christian George-Morehouse. The pair has collaborated on every token in the collectible coin series. The creative team has worked together on various projects for over twenty years.

The new collectible token will be made available on day one at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo. It will be distributed in special PRGE 2016 themed packaging. As with all previous DigThatBox.com collectible coins it will be offered completely free of charge. Be sure to arrive at the show early as supplies will run out very quickly. Previously, supplies of the 2015 coin were exhausted in the first hour of the show. The coin is limited to a run of just 1000 units. The silver PRGE token will not be produced again at any future date.

Once again DigThatBox.com will be offering this coin through a mail away program that is exclusive to members of their Arcade Token Collector's Club. Fans who have at least five of the previous coins in the series are given the chance to join this exclusive club which is limited to just 50 members. Being part of the club guarantees that you will receive all new coins for a 12 month period. Club members should expect their coins to arrive in the first week of November.

DigThatbox.com would like to thank Rick Weis and everyone from the Portland Retro Gaming Expo for helping us make this unique promotion possible. The site would also like to sincerely thank everyone who has supported their Collectible Arcade Token series. This event would not be possible without the support of video game fans everywhere.
