Thank you for the compliments. 

These coins are all "hand-selected".   Received today the remainder of the coins via Canada Post ExpressPost. 

Fortunate to own the entire set of $5 and $10 gold coins.

The Globe and Mail picked up the story about these gold coins.  Interesting read, and I was interviewed and mentioned in article by the reporter.

The story got picked-up by the Wall Street Journal, Canadian edition, in the following article.  It was interesting to be interviewed in this article by WSJ reporter Nirmala Menon.

Any chance the Mint sells some more of these coins, even though the remaining ones are lesser quality?
I would still like to get some.
I emailed them but no reply.
They could make more $ selling them as collectible a than they would get melting them down.

Very unlikely the Mint will sell any more of these gold coins. 

The Department of Finance and the Bank of Canada have confirmed that the coins are going to the melting pot, and recycled into pure gold bullion.    So sad.

The only options to get some is a major coin dealer, eBay or Kijiji, Craiglist.

  Smile from your heart.  ;D
