This Treasure Could Be Yours, If You Can Find It First!

To celebrate National Scavenger Hunt Day, we’ve created two special scavenger hunts… and there are prizes! The rules are simple: go to www.stampandcoinplace.com and look for the items on this list. The first one to submit a (verified) list of the correct items for each hunt wins!

Now for the important part: the prizes! There are two scavenger hunt lists, and two amazing prizes! For the Treasure Quest, you can win 3 genuine silver Mexican pesos, from the 1930’s.  But if you are the first to complete the Epic Quest, we will send you a small chest containing a silver 8-real coin and replica gold coin from the legendary Atocha shipwreck. (Certificate of authenticity provided as-is.) That’s right: you can win ACTUAL SUNKEN TREASURE.

 

Rules for Both Quests:

 

  1. All items MUST be found within our store site. Links to eBay will not be counted.

  2. Each item on the list must have a URL attached so we can verify that you have found the correct item.

  3. The items may be from any section in our store: bullion, coins, currency, or stamps. No items have been pulled from the S&C Etc page, but you are welcome to look through it anyway! (There are some real gems there.)

  4. The first winning entry submitted for each list, according to our clock, will be the winner. If no entry is completely correct, we reserve the right to choose the entry that we believe fulfills the rules the best.

  5. You may submit entries for both lists, but you may only win one. Your first entry received will be the first counted.

  6. International entries welcome!

 

 

To enter, send your completed list(s) to elizabeth @stampandcoinplace .com The email must contain the correct URL for each item on the list.
