Today, picked up the new 2020 Bill Reid, Circulating $2 Coloured Coin, from my local RBC Bank Branch.  It is gorgeous!!!



The Royal Canadian Mint has launched a new toonie to commemorate the legacy of Haida artist Bill Reid, more than 20 years after his death.

The new $2 coin, which marks 100 years since Reid's birth, enters circulation Tuesday.


"The mint is delighted to add the story of Bill Reid's pivotal role in raising awareness of Haida art, and the traditions and culture it represents to the long list of circulation coins celebrating what makes us proud to be Canadian," said Marie Lemay, president and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint in a written statement.

I want a roll, but none of my local banks have them...  :(

Visited 5 banks, spent two hours total in line and got 1 roll. I also got mine from the main RBC branch here. The very last roll they had.

Nice find! I'd be lucky to find any at a bank and if I do, the tellers will limit me to a couple rolls...
