                  This product is expensive for what you get. The face value is way lower but we bought it because it was the only package with the special 50 cents Canada 150 logo. We thought it would at least have the display card to go with it but it came in just the basic plastic sleeves and a flimsy envelope. We bought 2 sets and it was mailed as regular Canada Post with no signature required. Not a secure shipment for something this expensive. Disappointing.

                      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.
