What I found neat about this is the 1971 Dollar is rarely found
without toning because it was packaged raw without an airtite and in
packaging that promoted toning. This is a repackage of coins in
fancy cards and faux leatherette plastic folders, with "COA" and
description of the coin. I got these three in an inexpensive sale
and was wondering if anyone has other dates. Kinda neat packaging. Comments welcome.

There is a website noted fcmint.com that is not monitored any longer.

Nice pickups Don.
Never seen those before.
Good way of getting an early untoned
commemorative silver dollar.

Very nice! Thanks for sharing.

Individual issues of The First Commemorative Mint's "Canada's Legendary Silver Dollars" series pop up on eBay on a fairly regular basis - I've seen them for years. I haven't tracked them very closely, but I seem to recall other issues in addition to those you have shown.

They appear to be nicely packaged and to being safely storing the SD - Thanks to the Air-Tite holder!

Good luck in your search for others in the collection!

Beautiful, thanks for posting!

Just wondering - can the coin pouch on the right be easily removed from the binder?

Yes the Card with the air-tite and the COA and Card behind it
can come out of the plastic sleeves on both sides.

OK then yes I've seen these around at dealers, just without the binder. Did not pay attention to the dates.
