        I actually bought 2. They will stay in my collection for now; but I have 2 grandchildren that will split my collection at a much later date (I hope!). These will be of much greater value money-wise, and hopefully sentimental to them.

          I have shared Canadian coins more and more with others as gifts and to mark milestones, (Graduations/birthdays, etc) Others are always appreciative of the unique and professional designs offered by the Royal mint. I enjoy gifts like these for both the quality and value.

                        Typically a 50 cent piece is 27.13mm in diameter (from what I've seen & noticed). It says the included 50 cent piece is 23.17mm in diameter. Why is there a size difference?

                        Does the Royal Canadian Mint plan to offer a set later in the year that includes both the 2017 special designs and the 2017 classic designs together with the 50-cent coin of both designs, in limited mintage? I.e., a 14-coin set that combines the "2017 My Canada, My Inspiration Uncirculated 8-Coin Set" and the "2017 Classic Canadian Coin Set"?
