Members of the Hashknife Sheriff’s Posse are gearing up for their 54th Pony Express ride from Holbrook to Scottsdale, which will begin on Wednesday, Feb. 8. To commemorate the event and the centennial celebration of Arizona’s statehood, a limited edition copper coin is now available depicting the centennial symbol with the words “Hashknife commemorative coin” on one side and the Hashknife brand and building on the other, noting the year of the run. The coin is available for purchase at The Print Place in Holbrook for $10. This is one of seven coins produced over the years to commemorate the Pony Express Ride.
