Well I did it again. I went and bought another Canadian Bullion coin. I couldn't help myself. Not only was it a great dea,l it is a dinosaur! Please see a previous post in My Collections dated 24 November. It helps explain my sickness. Not only is this a dinosaur coin, it's a Tyrannosaurus Rex. No little boy, old or young, could resist it. Now to the specs.. The coin comes in the illustrated card shown. It is in a air-tite container, in a flip. It's part of Canada's' $20 for $20 program. That means I sent them $20 Canadian, at the time that was about $15 US money, and they sent me the coin. No shipping or anything else. How can you loose? It is a 2016 and has a face value of $20 Canadian. This beautiful 99.99% silver coin is 27 mm in diameter and weighs just under 8 grams at 7.96 grams. It has a serrated edge. The reverse was designed by Julius Csotonyi and obverse was done by Susanna Blunt. I think it's a very cool coin. I'm sure a lot of people will say it's not a "coin" and a waste of money. Don't care. I like it. Why else would one purchase a coin? Thanks for looking. Please share your opinion with me.
