                                      We can't predict which coins will increase in value because collectors consider many things when creating their collections including: metal content, face value, size, design, theme, technical enhancements, how well it displays, rarity (mintage), etc. Collecting is very individualized, so buy whichever coins you like the best!

                                    I'm just starting to get into this rare metals thing, and I'm a bit confused. Other that it being a "collectors coin" shouldn't a $200 for $200 be in relation to it's weight? for $200 I'd expect to get closer to 10oz

                                      Hi Dan - our coins are valued by collectors beyond the value of the silver or gold in the coin. Collectors often consider rarity (mintage), design, theme and face value when considering what to purchase.

                                      This coin is 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.

                                    Hi,

                                    The 2015 $200 coin is a first denomination or you have struck ones from previous years?

                                    Thanks

                                  • Q:

                                    Are these coins valued at $200.00 Canadian currency and can you pay for something with it in Canada?

                                    Recognized by retailers as Canadian money?

                                      Why would anybody even want to do that?

                                      Yes but retailers have the right to refuse them.

                                      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.
