    Yep, I have three great sisters in Canada, two in Vancouver and one on the Island, but only one thinks about coins as gifts

    Great looking coin and a great sister to buy gifts like that. She has good taste.

    I love these coins; only downside is the lower silver content than the pre-1967 pieces.

    Yes, only .500 in these. But as it is a gift it won't be sold anyway

    Neat, with the Northern Lights on there in the background.

    The design really stands out in hand, the devices are raised substantially

    Just in from work. You never know, I only inherited this collection at the end of December and many hints have been made as to Xmas presents this year.
