Yes it is. Why can't the US Mint design coins like this? Answer, no imagination.
Agreed. Canada has fantastic coins!
I wonder if the Franklin Mint gave themselves a bad name with collectors with all of their old magazine ads. They were in the business of manufacturing collectibles in a way that felt like they were trying to take advantage of the old, the naive, or the unwary. I didn't realize until much later that they actually can make beautiful coins too.
Agreed. Canadian coins are typically beautiful.
This coin contains 0.2667 oz Ag.
...the obverse is QE II...but that is one righteous Blue Marlin on the reverse, great coin...KM #21...Spark
@Collecting Nut ...I’m not trying to split hairs, but I liked the coin a lot and looked it up...Spark
No problem. My knee aches so much I sometimes wonder what I say or do. My surgery date can't get here fast enough.
A beautiful coin, vibrant but simple that is rather stirring!!
I do truly love Franklin Mint coins of the 70s and 80s, particular rare uncirculated specimens although confess to a complete collection of ALL their Caribbean 1960s through 80s proof coins..
Hmmm...sounds a lot like the US Mint.
I would agree except they make too many different designs and the common obverse is boring. Not saying the obverse on our (US) coins are any better.
