New Item Received: 2008-2009 $15 Sterling Silver 4-Coin Set: “Playing Card Money”

2008-2009 $15 .925 Silver Playing Card Money SetNumismatists and those interested in the history of money have always been fascinated by an episode in the late 17th century when the Intendant of New France, Jacques de Meulles responded to a shortage of usable money.  He took a set of cards, and with a stroke of his pen turned them into currency.  The King of France communicated his displeasure, but New France did this again with several more issues.  This “playing card money” is behind the commemoration of this 4-coin sterling silver set issued by the Royal Canadian Mint from 2008-2009.  This is the only set we have in stock; the price is $399.95 plus applicable taxes.  We are accepting orders by phone at 1-888-244-9999 and on our website [scroll down and click on the price associated with this set].

Update, May 22, 2015: This set has now been sold.

Sold-out Item: 2011 $20 Silver Coin with Venetian Glass: “Tulip and Ladybug”

2011 $20 .9999 Silver Coin with Venetian Glass: Tulip and LadybugJ & M just sold the last two pieces we had of one of the Royal Canadian Mint’s most famous and well-loved coins: the “Glass Ladybug.”  The final price we sold at was $950, which represented a small discount off of its peak price at $1000.  The fine coin silver coin with Venetian glass kick-started a series that is concluding this coming Spring.  (Each year, these coins sell out very quickly, so be sure to be in touch early to get the final coin!)  The 2011 coin was issued at the older price for this series: $139.95, and ended out being one of the RCM’s all-time best performers in terms of value on the secondary market.  As the Mint Products Specialist here at J & M, I have in the past turned down the purchase of more of these coins while we still had good stock.  I am now more than willing to make an offer should you have one you’d like to sell (ask for me, Nathan).

Hard-to-get Item: 2013 $50 .9999 Silver Coloured Coin: 60th Anniversary of the Coronation of Queen Elizabethiversary

2013 $50 .9999 Silver Coin: 60th Anniversary of Queen Elizabeth's CoronationThe 2013 $50 .9999 Silver Coin commemorating the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation is among the more beautiful of the Royal Canadian Mint’s creations.  The tastefully coloured image of the Queen in her robes contrasts with a beautiful, but retrained background of frosted and mirror-finish silver.  This particular coin is probably the most popular 5 oz. coin J&M has ever sold.  This single coin is attractively-priced at $549.95; to order, please call 1-888-244-9999 or visit our website.

UPDATE: This coin has now been sold (Jan. 23, 2015).

Hard-to-get Item: That’s One Big Penny!

2012 1 cent 5 oz. silver coinIt’s not every day that the Royal Canadian Mint makes a 5 oz. penny out of fine silver, but it did in 2012, the last year of the production of the circulation penny in Canada.  The “Farewell to the Penny” series included specially-wrapped rolls of 50 pennies (issued at $9.95, they retailed regularly for $100 only weeks after their issue date), a half-ounce silver coin with gold-plating, a 5-coin silver penny set with historical designs, and a “$20 for $20” coin that quickly sold out.  The 5 oz. coin, despite its relatively high price, was immediately popular.  J&M has acquired one coin recently; the price is $549.95.  To order, please call 1-888-244-9999 or go to our website.

Update: This coin has been sold.
