I found some coin subscriptions on the Mint's website:

The Official Diamond Jubilee Collection (I think Mrpiedfort found this one a week or so ago)
http://www.mint.ca/store/coin/r.m.s...-prod1280001

1/2 Ounce Fine Silver Subscription
http://www.mint.ca/store/coin/r.m.s...-prod1280002

1/10 Ounce Pure Gold Subscription
http://www.mint.ca/store/coin/r.m.s...-prod1280003

No real details on what comes included apart from the first coin in the series.

Second coin is a maple leaf to be released on May 1st. The design of the third coin will be revealed in September.

I noticed RCM had more and more half ounce silver coin sicne the maple forever, maybe later full ounce silver coins will become a rare thing to collect.

The problem is that I already have that coin. I can't seem to get the subscription for the other coins without buy another dragon.

@ kenney, that's not necessarily true. I already had the first two coins of the silver Chinese zodiac coins. I called the mint and they said that they could add me to the subscription list for the following coins. 6 Months later, the box to hold all 12 coins showed up as well as the dragon coin.

Perhaps they would be willing to do the same for you. Just call them and ask.

The add doesn't say if it will include a case to hold coins... do you think they will provide one?

@ aDk2, no case is included. I called the mint and asked. That's what the person said, no case/box. Each coin will come with its original packaging as if you were to purchase them separately.

This isn't a "real" subscription. Its just three 1/2 ounce silver coins.

Anyone else disappointed in yet another Maple Leaf design? I thought the dragon was a reasonably valued coin - a nice numismatic design with a fairly reasonable premium over spot. I was interested in other designs at a similar price point, but the next one is another maple leaf. A dragon and a maple leaf: that's a nice consistent theme. I guess they meant for the subscription to go with the Maple Leaf Forever coin?

Maybe this dragon eats maple leafs? That's why you need the two coins. Poor thing will starve if you don't feed it.

@jpaiva

dispointed too for the maple leaf. Don't get me wrong, I've got the maple leaf forever, but they shouldn't have mixed to 2 together. make 2 diffents series. I wished they said with dragon or chinesse year thing.

just hope that the next 20 for 20 isn't a maple leaf also.

Are we going to be able to order these coins without the subscription? I already have the dragon but wouldn't mind getting the others if we can buy them separately.

@ztt2: Like Jpaiva83 mentioned, you can call them and specify which coin you want. Because I already have the 1st coin(dragon), the Rep said that I can get the other 2 coins no problem.
