I have seen 1 in circulation, but every bank that I have asked for, no one has seen uncirculated rolls of them. What are others finding?

Do you mean the loonies?

I've also seen one in circulation, and ordered 15 through the RCM online. Other than that, I've had no luck getting rolls from the bank branches I've visited. Lots of UNC 2012 loonie rolls, but no Olympic ones.

You did mean loonies right? I was lucky back in july and got one in change here in montreal . It was in perfect condition, very shiny probably fresh out of a roll. Its the only one i've seen so far. Yes lots of regular 2012 (new gen.) dollars are in circulation. As for Toonies i don't think the RCM had any issued for the olympics

Seen none in circulation
Have received the ones I ordered from the mint (one had a crud spot)

I collect banknotes depicting Tallships. And to a lesser degree, all watercrafts.

Ooops, yes I meant loonies. Sorry about that. I missed out on the 5 packs from the Mint. I wonder if they will show up in uncirculated rolls at banks? If anyone has an extra 5 pack that they would sell please let me know. thanks

Got 8 rolls of these Olympic Loonies from a friend who obtained a box from a local liquor store. All rolls went to various friends 3/4 weeks ago.

Then just last Monday, one RBC Vancouver branch I ordered coins held 10 rolls for me. But I told them I didn't need them anymore. Now they are all gone.  :-[ :-[
