Looks like damage from the packaging machine, used for the pliofilm PL sets.


That was my thoughts as well. So, assuming these sets are put together and sealed at the Mint, this damage happened at the Mint post strike. So not a die/strike error, but not really PMD either, as the coin technically hadn't left the Mint. Does that make it a PSD (post strike damage) MD (Mint damage) or just a beat on coin? .

Looking good Don. I saw the new 2021 sets at the post office the other day. Wedding, Birthday, Baby and O Canada. The mint sure didn't wait long to put these out. It was nice getting the extra Loon in the 2020 sets, I wish it had of continued. Tony Bianco designed all 4 that I have seen, and he does a good job with hands. 3 of the 4 have hands, only the Wedding 1 doesn't. I like the car on that 1, but the tire tread messes with me. Is it an optical illusion? .

Thanks for the bump, I've been meaning to get some UN Loons posted, but Mother Nature hasn't let me see the sun in weeks. Literally weeks. It sucks.

They are both nice looking sets, SilverDon! I never thought of getting one of those for myself.

I spotted a few things on the 2020 UN loons. I have 4 examples to compare. 2 colour and 2 regular. There are different dies for each. 1 to accommodate the colour, and a normal 1. I see in the lettering, on the top of the U and N, some type of beading at the extremities. It is visible from both dies, so I'm thinking it's very common. I also see a weak strike on the non coloured coins date. The coloured coins date is much cleaner. Anyone else see this on their coins?

Wow Loonielewy. I just spent the last 90 minutes reading through your thread. I had never heard of a "loonie" before today. I knew what a loon was...love hearing their call when I'm in northern Wisconsin in the evenings. There are so many loonies out there. The list that Dorado posted early on in your thread was an eye opener. There are some really, really impressive loonies out there. Beautiful bird and just as beautiful coins.

I'm glad you enjoyed the thread. Loonies need more love.

Love all this loon talk and learning more and more about the nifcs and their sets they come in! This is my only nifc loonie I've acquired to date short of the odd set I've broken up. I have a good base collection for them however still pending an album!
