                  • Q:

                    If the coin is in fact "legal tender" there should be an official way to redeem them other than through the private market place. If they can't be redeemed "officially" for their face value then how can they really be considered legal tender? It then follows that advertising them as coins with a "face value" as such is very misleading. Where can these coins be officially redeemed for their face value?

                      A:

                      Hello Carl,

                      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.

                      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.]

                      I tried to cash in some of these $100 coins and nobody would take them, including the Royal Bank. Finally I got the CIBC to take them off my hands like they were doing me some big favor. Most coin shops won't go near them because they know they'll get stuck with them.
