I just received my copy of "Collections" a Canada Post publication and they had pictures of the coins, because they are sellling the coins, as well. They are encapsulated and come in square cardboard like the ones pictured above, along with a certificate of authenticity.

WTF? in a bag?

How many of these coins do people have so far? Did most just go for the 3 limit or find ways around it?

I just tried Canada Post. I have an account and it took my order. Just now.


canadapost.ca

follow links to collector's shop. Sign up and that should do it. Canada Post has been selling collector's coins on their website for a long time now.

I buy a lot of coins at the post office actually. A lot cheaper to find a good post office with coins from a year or 2 old that coin people dont think to check, and when a coin becomes sought, can find them for Mint prices rather then market value. Done real good with the Dinosaur coins in that regard.

Edit: thanks for the link idea, gonna sign up and do just that!

Even better is when the post office clears old stock for up to 50% off. I stay away from coins, as collecting stamps is bad enough.

Anyone else get their coins?


I have yet to receive mine from Canada Mint, however, I received the three I ordered from Canada Post, on Friday. I ordered the coins from Canada Post way after I ordered the ones from Canada Mint. I don't think I wil be getting the Canada Mint any time soon, if at all.

Anyway, I just wanted to know if others had got theirs yet.

Got mine from Canada Mint a few weeks ago. The order arrived approximately 3 weeks after I placed an online order. It came in the picture posted above with a navy blue boxes stuck on a half folded black cardboard-style box.

I ordered from the mint the first day it was available and got it about a month later. Then I ordered from Canada Post afterwards and got it about a week and a half later. If you didn't get yours by now then you will probably never get it. There's also a shortage of silver 1oz Canadian Maple Leaf bullion too. No local bullion dealers have any in stock and don't know when they will receive more.

It's a 1/4 troy ounce so 7.78g. The mint is making a lot of money on these coins.

My last 3 (of 9) finally came in and this is the only 3 the mint sent with the blue folder. I wonder how they decided which get the folder and which ones dont.

The black paper folder was a waste of space with the coins stickered on the page in random spots

I threw it out afterwards
