I was almost ready to give up hope on receiving my $20 coins. I ordered them almost a month ago. They came yesterday. It was in a nondescript brushed silver envelope.

About 2 weeks after ordering my set, I found out that they are literally everywhere lol. My friends got like 10 of them from their change. Pretty sure you could find a couple of them if you don't find anyone who's willing to sell the set to you.

Yeah but I wonder whats up with the low face values.... The ones with high face values to cost ie 20$ coin and 20$ to buy always sell out super fast.

There's another release of the buy-at-face-value-get-free-shipping coins.

This time it's a toonie with a ship on it. $10 for 5 toonies, limit 3 packs per household.

$2 Circulation 5-Pack - War of 1812: HMS Shannon (2012)

edit: It turns out there's two threads about coins from the Mint online store, but this one has more non-$20 silver content, so I'll just leave this here...

I have the reservation for the next coin in my cart. It is showing that I have to prepay for it.
I don't remember doing that before. Anyone else getting that?

It's wierd. I don't remember ordering the new Farewell to the Penny, but for some reason I received it in the mail.

I can't remember, if I subscribed to automatic payments for future new $20 coins or not......

Oh well w/e lol. It's face value right?

New coin looks meh

The Penny and the polar bear coins have looked the best in the series imo

I have extra sets of the Penny if someone has extra sets of the Canoe and Maple Leaf for trade
