Receive free shipping across Canada when you spend $100 or more at the Canadian Mint.
This is a limited time offer, and the expiry is unknown. The Canadian Mint usually charges a flat rate of around $8.95, so you are saving yourself that charge. While you can buy Mint coins at other places like Canada Post and Canadian Coin & Currency, the selection is often sub-par to the Mint itself as the Mint produces these coins.
There are some really interesting coin series currently being produced at The Mint. This 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin – Stained Glass: Casa Loma – Mintage: 7,500 (2014) is part of a stained glass series that has coins truly mimicking the effect of stained glass. This design looks like grapes and leaves and will set you back $129.95.
If someone offered to buy me a $100 coin, I would probably send them a link to the 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin – Maple Canopy: Autumn Allure Mintage: 7,500 (2014). The 3D effect of the trees is pretty awesome, and reminds me of laying down in a park gazing up at the sky in the fall. I like that they left the trunks uncoloured as it really draws your eyes in towards the yellow leaves. This coin costs $99.95.
The beauty of Mint coins can also be seen in their more affordable ones. The Eastern Prickly Pear Cactus – Coloured Coin (2013) is a vibrant coin showing a detailed, up close look at a cactus flower. The painting is exquisite and the coin is quite reasonably priced at only $24.95.
There is a coin for almost any interest. My husband collects coins, thus I am on these websites frequently to see if there are any new coins that might interest him. He has his yearly proof coin and then the odd series he likes. The last series he collected was duck themed, and the Mint still has two of the coins still available as you can see. As any coin collector knows, you cannot collect everything so you must select what most appeals to you and what fits into your price range. Sure, those kilo coins appeal to me, but the price is a tad bit unrealistic.
This offer is wonderful, as most coins at the Mint do not qualify for free shipping. However, if this offer does expire and you are left hanging, know that the Mint always has free shipping on a small selection of coins you can find here.
