These tokens are a celebration of video gaming. And they are made exclusively for the E3 Expo. We had a tremendously fun time handing out these coins to our fellow attendees. Our very own Dr Gonzo was on the scene giving out coins to everyone he met on the show floor. People always tell us this is a great way to promote our site, however we do it just because we like making people happy. We graciously thank you all for making this give away such a tremendous success!
