Giant Mario Coins Hidden in Aussie CBDs

Posted by Brad Long

Nintendo holding strange new contest to win copies of New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Live in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane? Haven't got much to do between Tuesday the 1st and Friday the 4th of December? Like looking for stuff? Well, you're in luck! Nintendo Australia are hiding coins in each of the three Central Business Districts in honour of the recent release of New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

Each day's coins will have clues appearing in the previous day's commuter newspaper mX to assist treasure hunters in finding the bounty. The first ten people to find the four coins will win a copy of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and the following ten people will snag $50 in cold hard cash! Anyone younger than 16 will need a competent adult with them.

Certainly a strange contest, but should be a lot of fun if you have the time to spare. We'd certainly like to see some snapshots of the giant coins!

I like the idea. Prize is a bit weak though, considering the task (I'd've thought they'd give a Wii too or something). tbh I'd probably just keep the coin and then sell it for a lot more money on eBay in ten year's time when it becomes rare collectible merch

Central Business District

@Aviator: Apparently you need to find all 4 coins on all 4 days.... seems a bit excessive just to get one Wii game, but it sounds fun nethertheless
