Could have had more finesse to the packaging of coins!

I would like to have seen a packaging like the free ones you could get on site. The coin would go into spot designed for it in the 150 design.

Presentation Lacking

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.

Not Happy

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. Brian Lowe Corner Brook, NL

Horrible quality control. Poor customer service

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!

John

Hi John, The card of the "2017 My Canada My Inspiration Uncirculated 8-Coin Set" is not sold separately, but we do have a "Free Official Canada 150 Collector Card" that holds all the coins except the 50 cent coin. Here's the link to the product page; http://www.mint.ca/store/campaign/MCMIEmptyCollectorCard-6900014

Chad

Hi! how many glow in the dark toonies were made. Thanks

Love Gold

Thank you for your question! We have made 3 million coloured $2 coins for circulation.

Erica (Product Team)

Hi Will we eventually find all of these coins in circulation? Or these are exclusive to be found only on Mint.ca

Alvin

Hello and thank you for your question! Yes all of these coins (with the exception of the 50 cent coin) have been released into general circulation for you to search for in your change.

Erica (Product Team)

Where can I buy the glow in the dark twoonie roll? I am a member of the Mint collector.

Jane

Hi Jane, 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!

Chad

Do these coins come sealed? Or loose?

Hugh

Hello and thank you for your question! These coins some sealed in plastic sleeves that you can remove from the folder to view the coins.

Erica (Product Team)

I bought the My Canada, My Inspiration 8 coin set for my kids. But the coin holder you have to hold the collection (free) does not have a spot for the 50 cent piece? Do you have individual coin holders for these? Or an alternate holder?

Tim

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. Here's the link to our accessories page to see the frames; http://www.mint.ca/store/buy/accessories_coins-cat120008

Chad

Do all of the coloured toonies glow in the dark??

Lola

Hello and thank you for your question. 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.

Erica (Product Team)

No. What you see is what you get. Did you even read the desc?

RE: My Canada My Inspriation set On the website it gives a little information about each coin and the designer name. Why is a print out of this info not included with coin set?

Arlie

Hello and thank you for your question! The card included in your set gives information about the specifications of each coin in your set. Our free official Canada 150 collector card provides more coin details that we could not fit on the uncirculated set! You can find more information on this card here: http://www.mint.ca/store/campaign/MCMIEmptyCollectorCard-6900014?lang=en_CA&rcmiid=tf|cleanpage|emptyMCMIcard|159348to157731to157308

Erica (Product Team)

What is the difference between circulated and uncirculated coins? Any visible difference?

ZZ

Hello and thank you for your question! 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.
