"The lucky Thimble has lost its "shine" with today's fans and will be retired from the game", the company said in a statement. That immortality has ended.

The token that will be replacing it is now unknown - the Vote Monopoly site, which hosted the event, says that winning tokens will be revealed on March 19, 2017, which has been dubbed Monopoly Day.
The classic Monopoly playing piece the thimble is being dropped in a new version of the board game.
