          I have enjoyed coins since I was 6-8 years old and my hope is that one of the grandchildren will want to continue "collecting" in the future.

          Purchasing from the Mint is a safe place to get coins that are of interest.

            To describe the Orca Whale Proof Coin I will just say this is the best looking $100 coin that Royal Canadian Mint has ever put out I swear,this piece is limited to just 50000 and I am one of those that will have one.

            As always RCM delivered another flawless package and in record time and I can't thank them enough for the care they show in its customers.Keep'um coming RCM.

              • 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.]

                A:

                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.
