how do you use this as face value?
I read that since it is "non circulating legal tender" (NCLT) bank will not exchange this and you can only exchange it at coin dealer or back to RCM

Bank can exchange them:
Quote:
All coins manufactured by the Mint are legal tender. However, unlike Canadian circulation coins, collector coins are non-circulating legal tender (NCLT). As such, these coins are not intended for daily commercial transactions and accepting them as payment or for redemption is at the discretion of businesses and financial institutions.

The Mint has a process in place to reimburse financial institutions the face value of redeemed NCLT coins, once they have accepted them from a customer and returned them to the Mint. In the event a bank branch is unaware of this procedure, customers are advised to contact the Mint with the coordinates of the bank branch, which will take steps to inform the branch of the redemption process.

As collector coins can only be redeemed at face value by businesses and financial institutions willing to accept them, it is recommended that individuals wishing to sell a collector coin first consult with a coin dealer, who is more likely to offer a price above face value.
http://www.mint.ca/store/mint/custom...aq-1100010#Q1a
If the bank doesn't take them. The Mint will send hired goons to the branch to straighten them out.

Ordered three wolf coins just now. Didn't have free shipping code, but it's better to get it now than risk missing one in the series......... so hooked on it.

Apparently, the hockey one is still available. Lady who took the call tried to sell me more, LOL.

BTW, their website is damn slow right now. Phone call was a 10 minute wait. Faster than the webpage loading.........

Free shipping on orders over $69
code: groundship69

Order the 3 coins and then add $20 Hockey coin (if you didn't order your limit yet), or something else that'll push it over $69.

I always ask for the order confirmation number and I catch the name of the person when they first identify themselves. I often call them by their first name when I have a question.

This reminds me of when I was young and collected odd looking coins. my parents rented our basement to this guy andy and he always had tons of change. He let me go through it and look for the cool stuff, I'd trade normal money for the cool shit. I remember I had a dozen of those dimes with the fish on them from 1967. Gave him a dime for them, they're worth about 1$ each at minimum. They can sell for up to 200$ if you get one with no wear, which was next to impossible. It can pay to look out for some of these coins and save them, especially the limited edition releases. Those month quarters are already gaining.

I got my $20 Wolf coins today.

The Purple Coneflower with Venetian Glass Butterfly - Mintage: 10000 (2013) is available soon but you gonna have to line up at the Mint store to get it since it's already sold out. Masterclub members who don't frequent coin forums didn't even get a chance to buy it. By the time MC members received the email it was already sold out.

Well, the Mint has decided to take it to a whole new level, with a $100 for $100 silver coin.


This bison coin is part of a new series, so there are more to come

http://www.mint.ca/store/coin/100-fo...3#.UZUhJ7WG0tM

I don't know if I'll jump on board because I already have so many of the $20 ones... I'm running out of funds. But hey, we've got our feet wet already, right?
