[edit] Virtual Coin Trail

  • Value: $25,000
  • This coin was found almost immediately after the toll free number was released on Feb 18th.
  • The 27th clue was available beginning at 3am ET/12am PT on Sunday morning, Feb 18. Contestants were to call the hunt line to give their answers. Answers were required to the following questions:
  1. Country
  2. State
  3. City
  4. Location
  • Contestants were required to spell every answer. For example if the answer to #1 was United States, the contestant had to spell U-N-I-T-E-D S-T-A-T-E-S.
  • The phone lines were open for approximately 30 minutes, after which contestants would hear an automated message indicating "All coins have been found." Later, this message was changed to "The Virtual Hunt coin has been found." On Sunday evening, the phone lines were back open again, but operators were instructed to tell contestants that the Virtual Coin had been found but the Physical Coins were still available.
