What's wrong with Canada? It's now a crime to mistakenly call someone a "he" instead of a "she," yet it's acceptable to blatantly lie and deceive.

Top 5 funniest statements/phrases of today's Shopping Channel show:

1) "The 2018 Big Coin series is completely sold out across the country."

2) "The Voyageur coin is selling between $900 and $1,000."

3) "Not only just still at issue price."

4) The 10oz Superman Shield coin: "Going faster than a speeding bullet."

Winner of the day:

5) Speaking of most RCM coins: "You'll always have that store of value."

Pretty hilarious, isn't it? The Voyageur Coin is not sold out everywhere. You can get it for issue at Canada Post and other dealers.

The only one selling for $900 is his sister company, CC&C, and I doubt they sold many at that price.
Have a nice day!

It's the kind of thing that sells out in less than 4 minutes UNLESS mint imposes strict hh limit. The reason is because Govmint/MCM, PCE etc etc. buy up huge volumes and send for grading.

This time around, strict limit of 2 per hh is resulting in still available hours after release.

Usually selling to MCM/GovMint is the kind of thing Mansun takes advantage of for a 'free lunch'.......yes much easier to do if you are USA RFDer

I doubt MCM/GovMint would pull the offer.......they make good money in premiums off of 70s sets..........especially FDI, ER or FR labels

I got one as well, but I imagine it was because I qualified for the promotion for a free case and $50 credit back in August.
