    Comments about 2017 My Canada My Inspiration Uncirculated 8-Coin Set:

    Finally received my order in September after reminding them of my order from 30 June.

    Presentation is very poor as mentioned by others. They should have included the "free" collectable card they have available. The "wallet" makes it difficult to expose the glow-in-the-dark twoonie unless you leave that sheet out of the wallet.

    I got this collection because it included the Canada 150 logo 50 cent coin along with the other Canada 150 special circulation cons.

        Comments about 2017 My Canada My Inspiration Uncirculated 8-Coin Set:

        These coins are too nice to have in a cheap paper wrapping.
        I am very unhappy with this purchase and my last purchase as both of the nice cardboard wrapping on the coin sets got bent during shipping.
        Thes coins should have been put into better holders or there should have at least been some hard cardboard placed in the envelopes with the coin set to protect it.

        I am very unhappy with this purchased because for the money it cost it should have been in a better holder. This holder is no different that the cheap sets you sell for $2.50.

        Again I am very unhappy and will think about returning it, and I will think twice before purchasing a similar item again.

            Took about one and half months to receive this. When received the twoonies had dents all around it. Called customer service and they I could return and hope they find another set which they said it probably not the case or I would refund me. Ridiculous. This was gift and they screwed up. Will never buy anything from here again!

                        We're not selling individual rolls of only the glow-in-the-dark $2 coin. But there are some in the $2 roll that's part of our "2017 My Canada, My Inspiration Special Wrap Roll Collection" (item # 157556). Here's the link to the product page; http://www.mint.ca/store/campaign/SpecialWrapRoll2017MCMI-7000022. Included in the $2 special wrap roll are both the non-coloured and glow-in-the-dark coloured versions of the Dance of the Spirits $2 coin!

                        Hi Tim,

                        We do not have coin holders or capsules for 50 cent (circulation) coins. However, you could display the My Canada, My Inspiration 8 coin set with a 50 cent coin in one of the floating frames we sell. Either the 240 mm x 240 mm x 34 mm size or the 270 mm x 222 mm x 34 mm size would fit the coin set with the 50 cent coin beside, above or below.

                        Yes that is correct! The coloured $2 coin in your set glows in the dark. Please ensure it is exposed to light for a few hours before bringing it into a dark room to see the glow.

                        Coins that you find in circulation versus the coins that you find packaged in your uncirculated set are the same. However the coins in your set were packages right after being struck and were not put into circulation first.
