      Comments about Fine Silver Coin with Niobium Colouring - Flowers in Canada Series - Rose - Mintage: 6000 (2014):

      This is a nice looking coin, however it is only slightly over 1/4 oz of silver and because it contains niobium, it is subject to HST... This adds almost $20 onto the already steep price of $139.95 for 9 grams of silver... I don`t think this is good value for the buck.. realistically it should not cost more than $89.95... the Royal Canadian Mint really put the screws to us on this one. Good Luck.
