WORLD BEE DAY 2022!!

Coins-World | Longstrider

Today, 20 May, is World Bee Day!! I know. It's amazing. As a bee keeper myself I wanted to share the good news with everyone. I am not a big colorized coin guy but I couldn't pass this one up. I won this coin at a Canadian Numismatic Society auction a few years ago. It is a 2017 Canadian 20 dollar silver non-circulating bullion coin. It is called Mother Nature's Magnification.

I would like to share this awesome coin I received from my beautiful, young wife. Below you can see my specimen of the 2013 Canadian Mints rendition of the Chinese Lunar Year of the Snake. This coin is 99.99% fine silver. It has a diameter of 34mm and weighs in at 15.87g. The coin comes from the mint in a cool presentation box and is securelytucked away in a Air-Tite capsule.

OH CANADA-CANCELLED BY PANDEMIC

Coins-World | Longstrider

The other day I received this kinda cool, kinda sad coin in the mail. Thanks to a fellow member here with strong likes for Canadian coins and The Royal Canadian Numismatic Society, I was told about these unique slabbed coins and was able to order one. As you can see in the photos this is a PVGS Sample slab with a Canadian 2020 fifty cent coin in it. The label states that it's from the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association Convention, this year to be held in Halifax. As is stated on the label, it was "Cancelled by Pandemic". Another one bites the dust.

SMALL BUT MIGHTY GOLD CHIPMUNK

Coins-World | Longstrider

Well, I don't usually buy bullion coins but I couldn't resist this one. It's a 2014 0.5 pure gold Canadian Chipmunk. It's number one in a yearly set. I'm anxiously awaiting the next one, which I already purchased from the Royal Canadian Mint. I'll put it up as soon as it arrives. I was going to put them up together but it hasn't shown up as yet. Anyway, this coin has a mintage of 10,000. It has a diameter of 11 mm. It has a serrated edge and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity. As stated, it weighs a mighty 0.5 grams, so hold it with both hands. The reverse was designed by Tony Bianco and the obverse of Her Majesty the Queen was done by Susanna Blunt. Probably a silly purchase but I like him!
