The Forrest Fenn Gold Medallion Treasure Hunts Update…

BY JENNY KILE · DECEMBER 31, 2018

We are so excited!  The Forrest Fenn Gold Medallions have arrived and the Treasure Hunts begin on January 3rd!  Get ready for the fun to start!

The Medallions are BEAUTIFUL! I’ve already received offers to purchase them for over $1000 dollars, but they are NOT for sale!  There have been a limited 50 ANTIQUE GOLD FINISH Medallions created with the date January 3rd, 2019 (launch date of FFGM Treasure Hunts), at my expense, for the prizes of the Forrest Fenn Gold Medallion Treasure Hunts (and possibility of a few future GiveAways or prizes in other MW Treasure Hunts).

These are the only ways someone will be able receive one of these first edition Forrest Fenn Gold Medallions. (other than Forrest, Genetic Blend (the winner of the Design Contest), Dal, and myself have received one each for the service towards the Forrest Fenn Thrill of the Chase Treasure Hunt and Gold Medallion Treasure Hunts)

Although the idea to keep the back of the Medallion design secret for the finders was planned, this has changed.  Dal and I (and Forrest) have decided to reveal the entire design of the Medallions for all to see and admire!   The Medallions are hefty, stunning, and absolute treasures!

As mentioned, the back was to include special doodles by Forrest.  He had sent a few doodles to myself, via mail, for Dal and I to use, and gave us permission to use any other doodles of our choice from his books.

Here are those ‘Doodle Cards’ sent to me.  (I took them out of the frames I have them in)

As you can see below, a few doodles from the Cards, and the books, were used, to create an awesome, one of kind, ‘unique’ Forrest Fenn Doodle Designed Medallion back!

The front design of course was chosen from the multiple designs submitted in the FFGM design contest held earlier in the year.  A huge thanks goes to GeneticBlend (Beth H.) for creating such a wonderful front.  Thank you ALL for your enthusiasm for the Medallions  and the upcoming Treasure Hunts.   We’ve had such a positive and exciting response to them!

Here they are!  Who wants one?!

And although many of the details were posted previously about the Forrest Fenn Gold Medallions Treasure Hunts, and remain the same (except the revealing of the back), here they are again with a few clarifications.

The clues for the first FFGM Treasure Hunt will be posted on Dal’s site on January 3rd, 2019.

The clues for the second FFGM Treasure Hunt will be posted on MW’s site on January 17th, 2019.

The clues for the remaining FFGM Treasure Hunts will be posted 2 each month in the months February, March, April, and May. One on Dal’s Site.  One on MW’s site.  (10 in total for this first series of FFGM treasure hunts (second series to follow. We have 46 Medallions to giveaway as prizes- but the second series might have Medallions hidden in other locations or be total armchair treasure hunts. More on the second series of FFGM Treasure Hunts after release of all clues for the first 10))

A searcher who finds a FFGM Treasure Hunt Stone MUST use the email: FFGMTreasureHunts@gmail.com to make a claim for the Medallion.  An image of the FFGM Treasure Hunt Stone and CODE found on the Stone must be provided in the email with the forwarded claim. (Remember the Medallions themselves have not been hidden for reasons provided before- previous post here) 

Also remember ONLY one Medallion is allowed to be claimed by household/searcher/person.  Because of the limited supply, no multiple wins/claims of Medallions will be awarded.

Below is a map of the area where the 10 FFGM Treasure Hunt Stones MAY BE hidden in the first series of hunts.  It includes all of the different areas of the Great Appalachian Valley noted on the map.

  1. Thanks to all….but to far to go…….need to hide some in the Texas Hill Country.

    The coin looks great…..but would have looked better with Forrest on the front of the coin, just like Ike on the dollar coin.

    Happy New Year to all and good luck to all in the Appalachian Valley area!

  2. Thanks, Dal and Jenny, for the new challenges! You guys are da best.

    And I gotta agree with Carolyn and ManOwar. Shore would be nice if a couple of those purty rocks showed up in the Texas Hill Country. I promise we’d give ’em a good home! 🙂

  3. I guess since there is about 2′ to 3′ of snow at my home, just a little south of Santa Fe, NM we probably won’t see the ground in the Southern Rockies till June or later. So Jenn, when do you think the focus will switch to us? TT

    • My guess is after someone finds Forrest Fenn’s treasure…so possibly not anytime soon unless you know where the chest is located? Seems like a reasonable trade though despite how beautiful the medallion looks.

  4. I have a question, will these medallions just be within this region alone or will it be multiple regions, such as the Pacific Northwest, Midwest, West Coast, South? Thanks! and Happy Hunting, if it goes to different regions I will partake in the hunt.

    • Joel-
      These medallions will be hidden in the Appalachian range because this contest was organized by Jenny and she lives near there and can hide them in that area conveniently. Additionally, I have one medallion to hide in the mountains near me. That will happen later this year. In the mean time the first medallion is already hidden in the Appalacian area and the clues to its whereabouts will be posted on this site January 3rd.

  5. Hi Dal. What about the West West through Canada close to Russia folks? Is there a rock for little old me to find? Sometimes we feel like we are living in another country….

    • I don’t know Copper…but just to be clear…Jenny had the medallions made at her personal expense and she is the person hiding them and she is the person writing the clues to where they are…she is from the eastern USA…
      So this is really Jenny doing something fun for folks in her area of the country…a grassroots hunt with Forrest’s permission to use his name and likeness…
      Maybe someone from the west, the south, the plains, the corn belt, the northwest and those who can see Russia from their backyard could organize something like this for folks in their areas..
      But aside from this search started by Jenny I don’t know of others for other areas of the country…

      • Someday Dal, I’ll get out there and hide a few for Jenny if she wants! I’m not complaining, just trying to stay involved I suppose. I’d love for some searchers to visit the 49th state. Jenny, your efforts are appreciated wherever you go. Thank you for keeping it light and fun.

  6. it would be funny if she hid one in the rocky mountains north of Santa Fe
    right above the tc. good luck to all who hunt stay safe out there.
