            Husband started collecting coins years ago and I have being collecting more lately. Get lots of coins from work when they come out and also have purchased coins from the post office over the years. Love that I can order online directly from the mint. Have started our grand daughters on collecting. Love giving coins as gifts.

                            On this coin we are showcasing the swift arctic hare embodying the unique traits necessary for life in the Canadian Arctic. This design shows a bounding hare as it escapes a wolf in pursuit.

                          legal tender means legal tender .... which means I can spend it in an emergency short of cash situation, right? or it should mean that.
                          I'm disabled, bedridden, and have bought these type $20 for $20, before and I have used them at the store before being on a severely lame OAS & CPP disability pension.
                          I bought these for the silver purity content should our economy tank or world currencies fail due to pandemics or disasters breakdown civilization.
                          under normal circumstances can I cash them at the post offices?
                          where do I get these silver bullion coins you speak of as dollar for dollar exchangeable spendable coins?
                          ps: I have already spent much of my 50cent coins collected since childhood at various stores as needed over passed several years without question by cashiers?

                            There are 15.87 grams of 99.99% fine silver in each coin.
