About the first coin design:

Based on an image by Canadian nature photographer Jim Cumming, the first coin in your subscription transports the viewer to one of Ontario's many lakes, where an iconic common loon (Gavia immer) has set up its summer home. Gliding across the glassy surface of its habitat, the loon tilts upwards in the water to stretch its wings, which offers the viewer a better glimpse of its remarkable wing feathers. The application of vibrant colour recreates the life-like qualities of the original photograph and captures the loon in fine detail, from its checkered plumage to the unique black-and-white collar beneath its jet-black head. The engraving brings a beautiful element of dimension to the overall design, which truly conveys the wild, untamed beauty of Ontario's lakes. The reverse also features the engraved word "CANADA" and the dates "1867-2017" to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Packaging:

Includes a deluxe collector case to store your 13 encapsulated coins and will be shipped to you with the fourth coin as part of this 13-coin subscription program.

              The coins aren't too bad. The Mint has better but a nice keepsake. But don't hold your breath waiting for the magazine. I have received 4 coins to date but have yet to see anything regarding the magazine. Not good service. If they can't supply, then don't offer. Would not recommend to anyone.

                  Received the case for the 150th series today (24 Jan 2017). It was worth the wait this time. Overall the case is well designed and appointed. The only issue I had was the final finish needed one more rub to take the minor roughness off. Correcting the issue was easily achieved with a gentle rub with a brown paper bag.

                    Finally received 1st coin with Collector case and couldn't be more impressed. Case is superb quality and coins are even better in hand. Only thing that could be better is Outer Sleeve for Case would look better with box form outer shell rather than the black sleeve.

                              Since you subscribed to the 13-coin subscription you're guaranteed to receive all the coins plus the free collector case. A coin will arrive approximately one month apart for 13 months. The free case comes with your 4th coin. If you'd like to receive the first 4 coins (that have been released so far) and the free collector case in your first shipment, please call our customer service department and they can do this for you (1-800-267-1871).

                              Hi Melody,

                              That's great! These coins are beautiful. To order all 13 coins you only need to subscribe once. So for quantity just enter 1. This will ensure you receive a coin each month for the next 13 months. And the free collector case comes with your 4th coin.

                              If you order now you will receive one coin a month for 13 months. Your credit card is only charged for each coin when each coin ships. The free case is shipped with the 4th coin. If you'd like to receive the 3 coins that have already been released in your first order, you can call our customer service department (1-800-267-1871) and they can make this change for you. That way you could get the 4th coin and the free case sooner.

                            Love the coins but NOT the fact that each is not identified to a province. To which province does the loon refer ? canola Field ?

                              Thank you for your interest in these coins. The identification to a province or territory is on the certificate for each coin.

                              Don't hold your breath..........I order the subscription back in July, and STILL have not got the magazines. I called my rep back in early December, he was going to put the request through again........still nothing.
