Looked at the Peace Tower Clock 5oz coin again today Mintage:1200.......I might buy it after all

Small edit to previous post. On the coin, the hands of the clock are black and is a faithful reproduction of the real clock face. Added to the clock face [on the coin] are two cogs (one larger, one smaller) made of oxidized copper from the actual Clock tower's famous copper roof

https://www.ourcommons.ca/About/History ... ower-e.htm

Question for the history buffs.....why do the hands on the coin display the time of 10:08 ?? .....I have no idea but July 1st will be 90th Anniversary of the inauguration of the Peace Tower. Might be the time of the ribbon cutting or whatever back on July 1st, 1927......just guessing

Pretty much the most famous clock in Canada...

What do you guys think of the 1200 mintage? I thought 5ozers usually had 1000 mintage.

Prediction: the more I think about it the more I suspect this 5oz Clock coin is a Bromberg commissioned coin. I predict it goes soldout from RCM at the highest MC Tiers mainly because I suspect Bromberg has secured a huge amount of the Mintage for the Shopping Channel. 'Timing is perfect' to cash in......no pun intended.....lol

It really is a great idea for a big coin for July 1st, 2017.......Bromberg likes his big coins ;)

Shopping Channel payment plans on this Peace Tower clock coin, combined with historical significance, Mint First of 'actual copper roof pieces on coin' & general sense of patriotism this time of year, as well as following in the wake of 'Canada 150 Toonie fever' make it a slam dunk for soldout despite Mintage:1200.......we shall see......eh just a prediction ;)

I was wondering who bought the last 50-ish rolls :D

I was looking last evening and they had 50-ish rolls left, decided to buy a few more, and this morning they were all gone.
I grabbed 20 on Thursday
Commemorative loonie rolls, quarter rolls, 50 cent rolls all different kinds of rolls contact for details. Venetian glass bee $250 plus shipping. 20for20 canoe $30 shipped 20for20 polar bear $30 shipped. Lots of 5 packs loons, toons and quaters

That was a good move. I don't think we'll see these rolls again for $61.99 (with free shipping).

I'm glad I'll have a couple sealed boxes of toons :) I've loved collecting rolls for awhile. I still have a few sealed boxes of flag quarters :)

If they're still available at the Mint, I'm going to be placing a large order of Toonies and Quarters

Let me know if anyone is interested in them!

I've been out of it and only found out about these today!

I took my site off line so will be doing things the "old fashion" way as I did at the start of all of this :)

You never filled the last order of rolls I made with you on your site :( I need a steady supplier for circulation rolls :) Supposedly the Public can't order them anymore.

Interested in the Toonie rolls if you can get them - someone here mentioned they've stopped accepting orders for random public guys ordering from Winnipeg, but I'm sure you have your own connections :D

Haha you mean last year? I received orders, no payments from anyone, so just cancelled it. I'm done with coins as a "business" but this one seemed interesting :)
