Gwako celebrating Happy 420 by offering 2nd coin in Burning Marijuana series, "Indica."

I bought few Sativa last year from The Coin Shoppe for issue price CAD$117 - promotional coupon code 20% off on Sativa = CAD$93.55 per coin.

Gwako is selling the Krugerrand Silver Coin for $81.40. Was able to put 100 in the cart.
I am interested in Silver Krugerrand but not at this premium for bullion coin.

Received the Peter Rabbit coins. I like the simple packaging. I do wish RM would do a better job of shipping across the ocean other than just shipped in padded envelop
Just picked up mine today from Canada Post.

Can not believe that Royal Mint is using paper envelope on silver coins.

^ Pro: no ding from customs

Con: no coins
I got my 3pcs Peter Rabbit, no tax. Barely arrived my Canada Post's PO.Box.

My Swan coins from Apmex ( shipping fee USD$30 ) also arrived yesterday by UPS ( Worldwide Expedited )

No tax, no brokerage fee.

p.s. Heard from UPS that UPS will not charge brokerage fee as long as customers uisng Worldwide Expedite and no tax involve.

No wonder they take 10 days to respond to emails. My package was ripped in three places, but miraculously the boxes were not damaged. No ding, either.

P.S. Good news about UPS changing their policy.

Yes, that was a good deal! Now selling for $250 at TCS.

I think $116 (with discount) for the "Indica" coin is not bad. Glad I bought at that price.

P.S. I like the Silver Krugerrand too, but too expensive.

That's bad. This is why I record all package openings. You never know what you're going to get...or not.

Good to have proof.

I received this one today.

Very impressed by the antique finish combined with selective gilding and high relief/3D effect! Even these nice pictures don't do this coin justice!
