    I usually enjoy the RCM's designs and execution, but this coin is the worse coin I've ever received from the RCM. It' relief is poor and one can barely make out the squirrel. I would not recommend this coin to anyone.

          This has to be the most ridiculous concept on a coin that I have ever seen.

          Nutty squirrel coin is an appropriate name for this coin.

          I guess RCM must be running out of animal designs. Or, maybe it is time to put some ants on coins. Would probably be more interesting and exciting than this blob of a mess.

          I quite like this coin and I like the contrast of the small spazzy squirrel with the huge towering oak. It is quite unique and I'm sure will stand out from the rest of my coins.

              This is a very novel idea, i must admit. But it's one of those coins that I'll just have to see to believe. Using wood is a really neat idea but it's use is not that appropriate here. (Wood to represent leaves)
              Now if that squirrel was running up a wood trunk, that would've been right.
              I'll have to see it at the Mint Gift Shop.
