Canadian Mint has some nifty new design coins for sale
« on: June 23, 2016, 10:20:09 am »
The Canadian Mint has some new design, $20 Silver coins that can be bought for $20.
This is a pretty good buy, since most of the Can Mint coins cost a great deal more, to buy, then what the denomination is or the what the worth of the metal used to make the coin is valued at.

Here is a Link to the coins:  http://www.mint.ca/store/product/rcmcoins.jsp?campaignName=20for20BatmanVSuperman&pId=4600022&lang=en_CA&rcmeid=atgm_TRANS_BMvsSM_Apr_2016

One $20 Silver coin commemorates the 50 anniversary of the original Star Trek TV series. The coin has a nice relief of the Star Trek Enterprise starship.

Another $20 Silver coin has a nice Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice relief, on the coin face.

Only so many coins of each design have been minted and there is a limit of 5 coins per household that the Mint will sell to.

While these coins are stamped as $20 valuation, I believe these coins are non-circulating coins, which means you can't use them as money to buy something, but you are supposed to be able to go to a Canadian Bank and they will get the $20 circulating cash, for you, from the Bank of Canada.

Typically, these $20 Silver coins will sell for slightly more than their face value, on the open coin collector market.

Didn't know about the Star Trek one! Thanks for letting us know. For stamp collectors, the post office has is selling Star Trek stamps and other collector items, too:

I finally received my $20 Star Trek coin, in the mail.  :-)  Took a long time to get to me.

Looks Ok.  Has a nice image of the starship, firing 2 phasers and an image of the Delta Shield Shield Insignia on the one side.
The other side has an ugly picture of the Queen.

For $109, you can get a $20 colour starship coin or for $1,299.95 you can get a pure gold $200 Startrek Delta Shield Insignia, shaped coin. :-)
