  • Is always on public property
  • Is accessible 24 hours, but posted hours should be observed
  • Fits in the palm of a hand

Whoever finds the medallion wins gift certificates, Oktoberfest merchandise, a cash prize, and a miniature replica of the medallion.

To claim the prizes, the finder must have a 2019 Oktoberfest Admission pass and/or be wearing a 2019 Oktoberfest USA button at the time they present the medallion at the Oktoberfest office.
