                    Asked on 5/8/2016 by Karen from Kelowna, BC

                    3 answers

                    • A:

                      If you are looking to purchase silver in any form for it's silver value, you should definitely not be purchasing numismatic coins. [While silver numismatic coins have a face-value that tends to exceed their silver value, their true value is in their beauty and rarity. On the other hand, troy-ounce coins and bullion regularly sell very close to the "spot" price of silver, because the buy is only interested in the metal itself.]

                      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.
