Does 171 mean anything?
At least it does not have "4" :)
No but 4 can be good as well. ie. 148 = eternal wealth.

And the .9999 Silver $10 Shannon.. (mintage of 10k)

Both are firsts in a series..

About the .9999 silver 1812 Shannon..

Yeah that's what I meant, circulating coins and 10 dollar coins for all the figures.

Don't misunderstanding, number "4" does not mean "Bad" in Chinese. 4 also means 4 season, year long,... so It also mean all year get health, get luck, get money... Depend on which number go with "4"
Also, many Chinese Blessing, Wishing Quotes has "4" in it.
Also. Each person no matterwhat what countries, he or she comes from, has some number that they likes. Let's say, he born in the 4th, or April or 1944....and many more reasons to love a particular number.

It's in the link:
Mintage 10000
Composition fine silver (99.99% pure)
Finish proof
Weight (g) 15.87 -> ~1/2 troy oz (conversion is mine)
Certificate serialized
Face value 10 dollars

I passed on this. The subject matter isn't of interest and I'ld rather the spend the money on upcoming Perth Mint issues.

is that 4-6 weeks from now? or 4-6 weeks from now and then a few other round of delays??
Hopefully just the 4-6 weeks from now, the issue is with 'coloured coins only'

In Brazil it's the criminal code article for embezzlement. If someone calls you a 171, they mean you are not trustworthy. Lucky for you there are not many Brazilian coin buyers around :-)

Went to a few today and none of them have it. Most of the Canada Post near my area are in Shopper Drug Mart so they don't carry that many coin selections. I did however manage to find one Canada post that still have one Two Loons coin so I grab it today. ;)
