              I'm collecting a bunch of the uncirculated Canada 150 coins and will frame them with other momentos from Canada Day 2017. What a great reminder of how great our country is ... and a conversation starter. I devout Canadian, I live in the States and it's always good to have an opportunity to show off a little and maybe educate too. :) Our coins are exceptionally beautiful. Thanks Canadian Mint for being a world leader and honouring our complete heritage.

                        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!

                      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?

                        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

                        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.
