Mint boutique to host local coin exchange
OTTAWA, Jan. 6 /CNW Telbec/ -
What: The newest coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's Vancouver 2010
collection is here! Canadians can now collect the 25-cent
circulation coin celebrating Cindy Klassen's five medals in long-
track speed skating in 2006, which was voted by fans as the third
greatest Canadian Olympic Winter Games moment of all time.
The Mint is inviting the general public to visit its Sussex Drive
boutique for a coin exchange, where some lucky visitors could find
one of only three million coloured versions of the coin randomly
distributed among the 22 million coins entering circulation. This
marks the fifteenth circulation coin to be issued in celebration
of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
Saving this special coin is a unique way to build momentum for the
Games and to generate luck for our athletes who will compete in
this momentous event.
