The longest line of coins measured 64.88 km (40.32 miles) and was made by Youth Activities Team (USA) in Fort Scott, Kansas, USA, on 11 July 2008.

Danny and Willa Ellis, local philanthropists, donated Ellis Park, located on 12th Street across from Fort Scott Middle School, to the City of Fort Scott and Bourbon County. The land currently houses two baseball/softball fields and a soccer field.

In addition to the existing fields, the plan for the new park includes an 18 hole miniature golf course, sand volleyball, batting cages, jogging/walking trail, picnic shelters, outside basketball courts, picnic areas, restrooms, playground area, landscaping, and parking.


Our funding will come in the form of in kind, private donations and grants. Our first fund raising effort was a community project. We are the Guiness World Record holders for the “Longest Chain of Coins”, and "The laying of the fastest mile of coins".

"The longest line of coins previously on record had a total length of 55.63km 34.57miles and was made in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia using 2,367,234 20-sen coins. It was laid by representatives of WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) Malaysia and Dumex Sdn Bhd on 6 Aug 1995."
