I really don't know what to say here, it's just an awesome coke bottle cap collection. Countries go from United States to Japan to Virgin Islands. It's from the 1960's.

    Very unique item. Doesn't really follow the Coke branding theme. Might be from international division or third party ad agency. I've never seen anything like it.

    I'm pretty sure that this was produced by the coca cola company in the US. They are all united states caps, they just have differant countries on the reverse. It was some kinda promoting campaign for coke.

    Yes it is domestic. Dates from early 60's I think. Was a promotion to get people to buy more pop, so they would collect all the caps. Sort of what McDonalds does now with the Monopoly thing.

    This Coke campaign was actually a contest. If you collected all of what I remember was some 100 or so bottlecaps of the different countries of the world, glued them to the matching country space on the "Tour the World" folder, and returned them to the nearest Coca-Cola Bottling Company plant (there were many Coke bottling plants in the 60's), you received a free case (24 bottles) of 10 ounce, green-bottled Coca-Cola contained in a yellow wooden crate with red cursive "Coca-Cola" lettering on the crate.
    As a young boy, I used to go around to all of the local gas stations with a magnet tied to the end of a long piece of twine and "fish" these bottlecaps out of the old-style Coke machines to successfully complete several of these folders. I'd take my red wagon to the local Coca-Cola botting plant in Utica, New York, turn in my folder at the office, and someone from the shipping department would place a case of Coke in my wagon (Sweet, sweet memories)!!!

    They might be worth .10-.25 cents a cap if you sold them sepretley. But I don't know anybody who's going to want to buy a whole bag of those.

    I have a complete set. Just wondering what they are worth.

    I have the original card for "Tour the World" caps from Coke " There are 100 spots from countries around the world. I have all but 4. I would love to ask what the value of this item is. The caps are not in mint condition, but the card or folder for caps is mint. Any info would be great.
