If you've been dreaming of new adventure, then get ready Pirates because we've got a treasure hunt for you! Somewhere hidden in the US is a treasure box with a golden key and a $100 dollar bill with a message. If you can find the golden key and reveal the secret message, you can win up to $20,000.
Tell Me More!
Author David Jacobson is the man behind the treasure hunt. He wanted to get people off of their sofas and back into nature, so he planned an epic adventure. Foreseeing possible legal issues of burying actual treasure, he instead decided to bury a chest with a golden key and a hundred-dollar bill. The first person to find the key and solve the riddle on the back of the $100 bill will win the treasure. The treasure includes 140 diamonds, rubies, sapphires, silver, gold, rare collectible coins dating back to the 3rd century of the Roman Empire, a 24-karat gold plated bracelet, and more. It is said to be worth between $10,000 and $20,0000.
How Can I Find the Golden Key?
Jacobson has included the clues to finding the golden key in his book The Hatter's Hat, a prequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll. Readers can search the book for clues, which according to Jacobsen will lead straight to the golden key.
