          It's looks nice, but not what I expected, the jade is yellowy white not green. I would expect some kind of green there. Should show a few variations of colour here so I expect something else.
          Overall it's nice but I think it's overpriced too much if I need to to take a chance if it doesn't look like what I wanted

                        A:

                        We sell coins from a variety of mints around the world as we feel these coins offer collectors interesting opportunities to broaden their collection. They also provide access to themes or technologies that are not available on RCM coins.

                        Canada is a country of multiculturalism. "Canadian" does not only mean the white Europeans any more! Canadians of different culture and race origin also form parts of the country! The Royal Canadian Mint presents their potential customers no matter what race they belong to, a selection of interesting products which may interest some Canadians/non-Canadians alike. This coin may not be of interest to one white coin guy, but other coin guys of different colour are interested in it.

                      • A:

                        In response to the answer given by 'Canadian Yellow Coin Guy'......The question being asked was why the Canadian Mint were selling coins produced by other mints. I too was under the impression that they only sold coins that they produced except under special circumstances.

                        I'm not sure why your response references "white Europeans" and the like. Hinting that this was some sort of racist question. I found your response insulting and uncalled for.

                        This is a stand alone coin. It is not part of a set or series. There are no other coins that sell with it.

                      Re: Year of the Rooster – 2 oz. Pure Silver Coin with Jade Insert and Selective Gold Plating
                      Cat.# 159991

                      This coin is advertised as being produced by the Mint of Laos. Does Laos operate its own mint? Do they arrange to have special coins produced at another Mint? If so, which one?

                      I ask this because a web search informs me that no coinage is in circulation within Laos, which implies that they do not have an operating mint in Laos.

                      Please advise,

                      Regards,

                        Thank you for your question. There was a miscue in our original text. This coin is currency of Laos, but was produced by MDM in Germany. The web page has been updated.
