The Republic-Monitor has begun preparing and planning for the annual Medallion Hunt, which will take place beginning Thursday, March 2 and run for five consecutive weeks.
That’s right, it’s an extra week this year.
This is the 37th year for the annual hunt, where treasure seekers decipher clues to lead them to a hidden medallion. The finder is awarded a check each week, unless the medallion is not found.
The newspapers containing the clues will not be available until 5 a.m. Thursdays for all five weeks at the Republic-Monitor office, located at 11 West St. Joseph St. in downtown Perryville. The hunt will run consecutively, with the final treasure hunt taking place on March 30.
Each week the medallion will be hidden in Perry County. Clues to the location of the medallion will be found in the advertisements of the merchants participating in the Republic-Monitor’s “Treasure Hunt” promotion. Participating ads will be marked by a pirate figure.
Clues to the location of the medallion will be published each Thursday in the Republic-Monitor. A prize of $100 will be given to the person who finds and brings the medallion to the Republic-Monitor office during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
