Seeing the actual coin on The Coin Show, the rim does not seem to be as big as the digital render makes it seem. It is still too big for my liking.

I am curious to know the motivation for making the rim that size. Was it meant as a unique design to make this series sufficiently different from the previous ones? Or maybe they could not achieve the 5 oz. weight if the rim was smaller or the correct proportion?

IMO - this is pure overkill notwithstanding rim loonie
Gonna be a tough sell hence the extra incentive offered at C C & C - bonus proof set.
The initial series was very cool -
Colour series ok
Colville series okj
Rose gold set - loved the SD and penny
This 2019 with lowest mintage - another rerun - will be heavily discounted down the road - hold off if you want it...and save

Maybe they wanted to leave more space for S.Bromberg to handle the coin with his fingers. Too many fingerprinted coins sent back for melting?

(joking, of course.)

So agree with electrum about series of series.

And RCM can 'play' here a lot:
just modify design of one of the coins (let's say a-la V-Day nickel, and it very possible for 2020), slightly change the plating pattern (rhodium? enamel?) and new series is ready.

Somebody mentioned how there is a lack of buzz with September releases - usually a big splash release by RCM
Buzz killed due to repetitive design
Creativity team needs to be upgraded soon.

Strange! Talisman Coins posted some different photos for the big flying loon coin with no rim and looks a lot nicer : http://talismancoins.com/products/09337

@shopaholic: those photos on Talisman's website make the rim look normal for a loonie, but smaller than what I saw on the Coin Show.

@jimper: RCM says 94% sold (of 1250), thus 75 units in stock. Probably a bunch of cancellations after seeing the real deal on the Coin Show.

I might suspect, that will be no trouble with the rim.

Would advice for those, who like the coin:
if it possible - order it from RCM and use the 30-days return policy.

Always option exists, though, that years later the coin will drop in the value...

I purchased every single big coin series starting from 2015 which means that I have four complete sets but I will not be subscribing to this series at all. Everyone can have a play with the wording used by RCM and Bromberg TSC, and most coin dealers to describe what happened with the 2018 series by adding a 5 ounce Penny AND SUPPOSEDLY only available if you subscribe to the series. We all know that it was a scam. Singles of the 5 ounce penny sold on the shopping channel for 40 bucks more than original price with mintage of 1434 and like how did they come up with that? I did not subscribe to the 2019 big coin series because I truly felt conned by their wording for last year and now once again with this year's series of the 2019 big coins offering up the big penny only with the subscription. I will want this set but I have decided to wait and hopefully to purchase this complete set at a big discount down the road because I am the type of collector that has this compulsion to have complete sets.

Hi NEW1954
I am new to CCF... but you seem to know whats going on! I bought the 2018 set from TSC and my penny arrived "naked" inside a wooden box w/o a red clam shell or its little white cardboard box. TSC said they got them that way. I think RCM sent out their penny all dressed up in its own box. Do you know what happened?

There is no red clamshell and white box if you ordered a subscription either from the TSC or the RCM.

You received it correctly. All subscriptions come with a "naked" coin.

The only way you would get a clamshell with box is if you bought it as a single.

@67fan

If you ordered the 2018 big coin series, the final coin which is the penny, did come in the large wooden box. The others before this 7th coin all came with maroon clamshells and custom sleeves. If you only ordered the single penny, it would come with the maroon clamshell and custom graphic sleeve.

@ New1954

Ordered the single 5oz Big Coin Dollar from the Mint and did not receive a Custom Graphic Box.....

Just the Plain Black Box

Doesn't appear to be any Fancy Graphic Boxes this year
