Especially at Blenz on Robson, where you may get discriminated against.

Highly unlikely you're going to come across this from getting change at a store... very few will end up being circulated... everyone just buys them and stashes it away...

It's the same as cash... which means that stores can refuse to accept it if they want to. Stores have the right to ask for any type of payment they want... even bananas if they wanted to. However, being legal tender, it MUST be accepted if being used as payment towards a debt.

For those that don't want to wait and/or prefer to not order online, you can pick this up in person at the Mint store... it's on Granville Street between Georgia and Robson.

I already bought a couple last week... and have a few more coming from ordering online.

Edit: LoL, whoops... the store closed this past Sunday.

Probably not all places will recognize this and accept it.. but who cares.
Why would you guys buy it just to spend it?
It's a collector's item.

this is the perfect coin for youtube trolls. just try getting a latte at starbucks with this, then argue with the cashier about how it's legitimate legal tender.

better yet, argue with a dumbass bank manager that will need to hold your coin for 5 days to verify it

Again, legal tender does NOT mean stores have to accept it in exchange for product.

Legal tender only means that if you're using it to repay a DEBT, it MUST be accepted.

When you're at a store, you are not in DEBT. The seller is free to choose whatever type of payment he wants, including refusing legal tender.

Not sure about points, but Pure metals are Tax free, so Silver and gold coins you dont pay tax on, Non pure (Sterling silver) you do though

This is pretty cool the fact it's selling for face value.

Don't most of the "collectors" coins come out with a face value of say...$50 but sell for like $150? And when you take it to a bank or whatever, it's still worth what the face value is regardless what you paid for it. I think only when selling to a collector is when it actually has better than face value.

Too bad I didn't know about this...I was home a couple weeks ago and the RCM store on Granville was open. I coulda just walked in and picked it up in person. Snap.
