You can also go to the Canadian Mint and pick it up if you don't want to wait for shipping.

For those who have ordered from the site, how long did it take for you to receive it? It's been almost 2 weeks, and still nothing.

I ordered mine on Oct 6 and got it early last week sometime. But WTF, I ordered 3 to give away as gifts, but they sent me only one display cover and put all 3 coins in the one cover instead of giving me 3 covers.

^ go to a coin and stamp place to see if they have any coin holders/display cases.

One of the best places to go for coin and stamp supplies is Chantou on Fraser and 49th. Giuseppe Iorio, the owner, is one cool dude.

When I read that I thought that is cheap cause 10kg of gold is roughly $503,000 USD but it's $100,000 face value.

For those of you that ordered the $1 coin....

Did it arrive in these kind of plastic slips? $1 X 5 in one long row...


Or did they come in a roll?
