Mint Canada: $20 for $20 Bugs Bunny, Superman, & FIFA Coins with NO Tax & Free Shipping

I am not a coin collector but the best coins to collect from The Mint are their $20 for $20 series, Right now they have three $20 for $20 coins that you can purchase: Superman, Bugs Bunny, and FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015. Each coin comes with free shipping from the Mint and has no tax.

The FIFA coin is already 79% sold out while the other coins still have plenty left in stock. The Superman coin is a pretty new released and I think it will be popular as it is the best looking coin of the bunch. Read the rest of this entry »

March 2 Free Shipping on Lunar New Year Coins

Posted by on March 2, 2015 at 6:00 PM Free Shipping on Lunar New Year Coins

The Royal Canadian Mint is offering free shipping on all Lunar New year themed coins right now. While The Mint usually has free shipping on orders of $100 or more, there are several coins below this price point that you can purchase and have shipped to you for free.

According to the Chinese zodiac, we have now entered into the year of the sheep with plenty of ram themed coins for you to collect. For a basic New Year’s coin, select this 1/2 oz. Fine Silver Coin – Year of the Sheep – Mintage: 22,888 (2015) for just $39.88 with free shipping. This coin is crafted in 99.99% fine silver and has a limited mintage. Because of the silver quantity in the coin, your Year of the Sheep fine silver coin is both GST and HST exempt.

My favourite Lunar New year coin is from the Lotus collection. The Fine Silver Lunar Lotus Coin – Year of the Sheep – Mintage: 18,888 (2015) both has a lower mintage than the above coin and a beautiful scalloped edge. The coin comes in a proof finish and presented in a lovely Asian-inspired case. This coin also is GST and HST exempt; you will just pay $98.88 for the coin and receive free shipping. This is the sixth coin in the twelve-coin lotus set. It is a very nice collector item and it will cost you less than $100 per year.

This Fine Silver Coin – Year of the Sheep – Mintage: 8,888 (2015) has an even smaller mintage and has an artistic rendering of a Bighorn sheep from Canada’s Rocky Mountains. GST and HST free, you pay $74.95 for this 99.9% silver coin.

If you wish to collect some Lunar New Year mementos that are not ‘exactly’ coins, then check out the subscription based The Chinese Lunar Calendar Medallion Set. When you choose this set, you will receive the first medallion (Year of the Goat/Sheep) for only $19.95. Each additional medallion will cost $29.95 each. The last medallion, the Buddha medallion, will be free once you have purchased your twelfth medallion. The Buddha medallion is worth $39.95. In addition, you will receive a wooden collector box worth $50 after you have bought your fifth fan-shaped medallion. Receive free shipping on the goat medallion fan with this offer.

This offer ends in just a couple days so place your celebratory Lunar New Year coin orders soon. After the promotion, only coins over $100 will ship free.

January 11 Free Shipping & No Tax on Sir John A. Macdonald Coin Pack (2015)

Posted by on January 11, 2015 at 6:56 PM Free Shipping & No Tax on Sir John A. Macdonald Coin Pack (2015)

The is not known for their deals so anytime I see something that remotely looks like a deal, I pound on it. The Canadian Mint has released a five-pack of Sir John A. Macdonald $2 coins. You will pay face value for the coins – only $10 ($2 x 5 = $10), pay no tax, and receive free shipping on your order.

I think this is a pretty special offer as very few special coins are offered at face value. We have had a few quarter deals like this, but this is the first time I have seen a $2 coin deal.

Now, what is this all about? Well, in 2017 Canada will be celebrating 150 years of being a nation. That is exciting stuff, eh? While we are two years away from that venerable celebration, this year marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Canada’s first Prime Minister: Sir John A. Macdonald.

There is a limit of one coin pack per customer. As they qualify for free shipping, this is not a problem in my view. You will receive five commemorative $2 coins with free shipping and no tax. I like that you get five coins so you can give your duplicates away to family and friends if you want. These could also make great stocking-stuffers for next Christmas.

This coin pack is available for sale in Canada only. As some of you may know, the Canadian Mint produces coins for countries around the world as well as our own country. This coin pack is exclusive to Canadians only. If you do not want it in a few years, you could always sell it to coin collectors in other countries via eBay or whatnot. These are also not available in store.

I will probably pick up one of these sets for my partner, as he collects coins and has purchased the previous quarter packs that were released like this. As you are only paying face value, there is no need to keep these as collector’s coins. You can always spend them just like regular currency if you find you do not want them after a bit.

Quantities are limited.

The Canadian Mint: New Coins with Free Shipping

Posted by on September 9, 2014 at 9:00 PM

The Canadian Mint: New Coins with Free Shipping

The Canadian Mint has released a whole bunch of beautiful new coins and many of them will ship for free when you buy them directly from the Mint.

Right now, the Mint is offering free shipping on orders of $100 or more, which I have mentioned before, but many of us are not going to shell out $100. We just want a specific coin and not $100 worth of coins. That is where this free shipping on select coins promotion comes in: it is very happy for just buying the coin you want without hitting a minimum.

My husband collects almost anything duck, though he has stopped actively adding to his collection for a while now. However, the duck series of coins that The Mint released last year he gleefully added to his collection and he will be added the new duck coin that was just released. This 1/2 oz. Fine Silver Coin – Harlequin Duck – Mintage: 10,000 (2014) costs $69.95 and matches well with the previous duck oriented coins released. Thankfully, the coin qualifies for free shipping so my husband can order it anytime he pleases without any additional costs. The coin is made of 99.9% silver and positive reviews are starting to come in:

The 4th Coin in the series and it features the Glorious Harlequin Duck. Issued in the same size as the other coins 34mm which could be a little larger, but, yet very collectible. I wished it would also have been issued with a little lower mintage as the series continues on that way the Collectors will want it for their own Personal Collection. Still with it being solid silver it’s investment value will increase over time. What can one say other than, “It’s a Beautiful Coin”. The Engraver at the Royal Canadian Mint picked a very pleasant Scene for a coin.

If your budget is on the lower end of things and you want your coins to have the face value that you pay for them, then be sure to pick up one or both of the $20 coins that are currently available.

Both come with free shipping. You may also want to consider the $50 for $50 Fine Silver Coin – Snowy Owl (2014), which is just a lovely piece put out by the Mint. It also qualifies for free shipping.

Canadian Mint: Free Ground Shipping On $100+

Posted by on August 22, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Canadian Mint: Free Ground Shipping On $100+

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. Canadian Mint: Free Ground Shipping On $100+

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.

May 9 Free Shipping On $20 For $20 & $50 For $50 Coins

Posted by on May 9, 2014 at 6:30 PM Free Shipping On $20 For $20 & $50 For $50 Coins

The Canadian Mint is finally offering free shipping on coins I can get behind. Receive free shipping on the $20 coins for $20, and the $50 coin for $50 from the Mint.

These coins are really special in that their face value is equal to the amount you are paying for them.

Now you can pick up the lovely Bobcat (2014) for only $20 and get free shipping. The other coin currently available is the Canada Goose (2014) also with free shipping. There will be two more released this year, as long as the Mint keeps on schedule (they are somewhat notorious for releasing coins late). However, these coins are selling very quickly: the Canada Goose is already 93% sold out.

If you plan on buying all four of the $20 for $20 coins this year, you might as well sign yourself up for The 2014 Silver $20 for $20 coin subscription for $20 which includes the first coin (Canada Goose). You will be auto-billed and auto-sent each of the next coins as they are released.

The $50 for $50 Fine Silver Coin – Polar Bear (2014) is also included in this free shipping offer. He is an absolute beauty and a coin that retains his value no matter which way the silver market goes.

For other free shipping offers, check out the free shipping page.
