Deal Link:
More offers from Royal Canadian Mint
Hey everyone, technically not a "hot deal" but nobody started the thread for the new Gingerbread coin.

Not a bad Christmas present for kids!

At par, so nothing is lost really (unless you consider opportunity cost).

DESCRIPTION: This finely crafted coin of 99.99% pure silver captures forever the sprightly joy of a holiday classic: the gingerbread man. The warm, cozy delight of sweet baked treats is a hallmark of the Canadian winter holidays.
MINTAGE: 200000
STATUS: Canada and US only
5 per household

kids barely like it, they prefer toys or something else. I could get a better gift for my kid with $20.

Not for kids but it works pretty well for family and friends that you don't know what to get them for the holiday.
I personally would rather get this than a gift set :p if anything I could always exchange it to a $20 bill !

Some holiday gift ideas for family and friends.

You can also consider this $25 for $25.

This one is relatively more expensive. One oz. fine silver mintage 7500.

I missed this last year and ordered one last week. One oz. fine silver mintage 10,000.

The later two are not matching face value.

i dont see why anyone wouldnt just max out the household number and go to the bank and deposit them to cash in on credit card points.

Sometimes banks give a hassle taking them, so it's not always that convenient.

I would rather take a $20 bill then. Getting these accepted at the bank can be a PITA.

Yes, manufactured spending, it's a thing. Churners use it to great effect.

After wasting 5 minutes of my life registered and ordered the previous canada flag coins, that never came nor withany explanation (CC was refunded), I advise you not to participate in this as now I am getting snail mail spam from Mint.ca.

Does anyone know how to get the Mint to stop sending me addressed junk mail (flyers through Canada Post)? I ordered some stuff a few months ago and they send me ads every other week or so.

How fast do they ship?
If I ordered tonight would it arrive by Friday?

Sell for $25
- nice profit margin for the government

For comparison the quarter is
Mass, 4.4 g.
Diameter, 23.81 mm .
I'm sorry, but that logic is flawed. Printing $100 bills probably costs the government pennies, if that.
Obviously when the government circulates currency, they have a profit margin.
You're buying these for face value...

Probably not, it usually takes a couple weeks for these to be processed and then 2-3 days to get it delivered to your house.

You could try calling in and ordering during the week, people seem to have had success with that.

That's what multiple accounts are for.
