Coin did not come in packaging specified on website:(


I waited to buy the coin upon release for Chinese New Year in February. I purchased this gift for my husband's 60th birthday in May. I didn't open the package until it was time to wrap the gift and was disappointed the coin didn't come in the gold satin box, with red sleeve as specified on website. I am on call #3 to the Mint. Very frustrated. Asked why they would even send the coin out without the proper packaging? This is my first time purchasing a coin through the Mint. I'm hopeful this can be resolved.

I live in Ontario. Do I have to pay Any deliver charge? What's the total for one coin?

Why does this coin have service tax?


Hi dsychan, We are required to charge applicable taxes on products that are not fine silver or pure gold. This product is 18-karat gold and is therefore subject to taxes.


Hi, I want to buy this coin to my son , but I can't buy online because it say awaiting stock only available at Ottawa , I live in Toronto , how can I buy this coin from Ottawa? Thank you


Hi Julie, It's now available to buy online. Please try again. Please note this coin will start shipping sometime early next year, exact date not yet confirmed.

the rc mint used to specify the proportion of metal in their gold alloys{gold/silver} are they using a different metal such as nickle to cut their cost?


Thank-you - this is a great question. There have been no changes in the production of RCM gold alloys. They are still a combination of silver and gold‎.
