      Could only buy 5 of 7 coins from the mint.The Winnipeg coins emblem is off centre. Bought 2 Montreal and Toronto at the post office. Indents and scratches on one of the Toronto coins. One of the Monteal coins has paint missing on one of the A's in Canada. And the other has a paint chip on one the A's upside down.

          I thought this was a very attractive looking coin. My son-in-law is "Jets" crazy so bought it for him to commemorate his 40th birthday. I thought it a great momento.
          I bought the other one for my husband for Christmas. He has a collection of special edition coins and I know he will be pleased with this.

            Great looking coin, the design and look is excellent. Only negative point is the price for a 1/2 oz silver coin is out of line. Going by the mint's other offerings, this should be in the 50-55 dollar range, not 74.95, decided to send mine back.
