Lacking Canadian Mint Quality

By CrustyCoyote

About Me Quality Driven

Pros

  • Nice Idea And Subject

Cons

  • Lacks Relief
  • Poor Execution
  • Too Busy For Size

Best Uses

  • Gift For Adult
  • Gift For Child

Comments about Special Edition Specimen Set - Baby Raccoons (2015):

Due to small amount of relief the wonderful idea of raccoon kits was poorly executed due trying to put too more than 1 kit on limited area of this coin. Under 5X magnification and at a 30-40° angle the $2 is a beautiful coin.

                Is it possible to purchase only the $2 coin (baby raccoons) or do I need to buy the whole set?

                  A:

                  Thank you for your question. As it is a complete set, you will need to purchase the entire set if you would like just the $2 baby raccoons coin.
