The 1994 National War Memorial dollar is an interesting choice (at least to me) for this year's Renewed Silver Dollar - the coin wasn't issued in silver back in 1994, just a nickel-bronze alloy. Yet another diversion from consistency for the series!

The State of the Art set sounds just like at least one of the sets the RCM previously gave its employees as a "Thank You" reward. I wonder if current employees received one of the sets this year?

I'm interested in seeing the design of the Bald Eagle Reflection coin. If it's a new design featuring a bald eagle in a natural setting, I might consider adding it to my bald eagle coin collection.

Other than that, I think I'm out until the 2019 silver dollars are released.

The 5 oz Silver Polar Bear Coin looks interesting where it isn't perfectly round with the engraved rim, however, I've been put off of getting 5oz coins and seeing the value drop almost immediately.
I must say, I don't really like the 2018 Master Club 2 oz Renewed Silver Dollar. I think it's design is still too new to use it again.
I do like the Reproduction of 1908 Canada first gold coin - 1 oz Pure Gold, but at $2899.95 it's out of my price range, so I likely make due with the $20 1 oz Silver - Reproduction of first gold coin - 1908, 100th anniversary at $114.95.

Thank you a lot MoneyPenney for the list and description.

RCM in the good way, to offer for sale other type og coins, except of standard NCLT and 'upgraded' bullion.

RCM continues to push to the market close to 20 new items instead of 5-7 (taking in account that will be no December release)

I just saw the Bald Eagle coin on eBay - it's not for me. It's a mostly colourized coin that includes a flashlight that is used to view the coin's alternate colour scheme.

No thanks. I've decided my collection will remain a "gimmick-free" zone!

The 2017 commemorative coin marked the first dollar-denominated gold coins struck at the Ottawa Mint. The coins were the first Canadian gold coins with a distinctly Canadian design - the Canadian Coat-of-Arms.

The 2018 commemorative coin is marking the 110th anniversary of the first gold sovereigns struck at the Ottawa Mint. The coins had the standard sovereign design of the time; coins with the same design (except for the "C" mint mark for Canada) were struck by The Royal Mint as well as at multiple of its branch mints across the world.

The 2018 commemorative celebrates different gold coins vs. the 2017 piece.

Thank you very much for explain, Commems

Will think twice or trice if I really need it for collection, but to have this distinctive timeless design on the Canadian NCLT could be great.

While I am not a great fan of the Renewed $ design... I agree it is too new... my OCD requires I maintain the series.

That said, I would have preferred the 1958 BC dollar. A 24 year anniversary of the issue seems less of a milestone than 60 but what do I know... Caught hook line & sinker.

I have always had a soft spot for Sovereigns. I wish though that they had left the denomination off the coin. Sovereigns don't state their value... whether the half, full, double or five, the size of the coin tells you its denomination. If they had to list the value, why not on the obverse leaving the reverse for a more true replica...

2018 Master Club 2 oz Renewed Silver Dollar - 1994 National War Memorial silver dollar - $194.95, 4000 mintage


This one available on eBay for CAD 229.95 with Free Shipping to Canada. I remember this price for the 2015 Voyageur at the beginning.
The coin looks great. Someone will buy? Or load?

Found also this one:
2019 Bat Signal Glow-Dark Dollar $1 3/4OZ Silver Proof Barbados Coin Made by RCM
Interesting...this is like Perth Mint for Niue or Palau.Is this one appears in the set as well?

Sovereign looks very very good.

I found November's release is surprisingly interesting. Here are a few that got my attention.

1. The 1908 Sovereign Gold Coin



This is a classic design from more than one century ago. But the design is unusual from today's perspective: violent and maybe politically incorrect. Perhaps that's why this coin got my attention.

I'm not sure about the lack of Canadian elements though. At that time, the same design was used by mints in many countries, including Canada, UK, and Australia; Only the letter "C" on the reverse side indicates the coin was minted in Canada.

2. Rhodium-plated Silver Maple Leaf

Many collectors - including me - buy anything with the iconic maple leaf design on it. And the Mint knows that.

Here is another coin to celebrate the 30th anniversary of silver maple leaf, after the gold-plated 2oz coin, the maple leaf-shaped coin, the 2-coin set, the incuse 1-oz, the incuse 3-oz, the "30" superimposed coin, and the 1-oz gold coin with platinum plating.

Nevertheless, I love the contrast between the black and white - and the iconic maple leaf.

3. Masters Club - National War Memorial

I love the fancy wooden case. It shows the Mint can be generous sometimes.

Yes, this coin will sell out quickly. But I'm not sure if I will get this one. My last three in this series: 50 cent 2017, Silver Half-Dollar 2018, and Parliament 2017 haven't appreciated much. Additionally, the quality of these three coins is mediocre. But the wooden case is nice.

The design of the Sovereign coin is not political nor violent - its the fabulous classic St. George slaying the dragon by Benedetto Pistrucci-
Great design - standing the test of time - hence a classic

Maybe I should rephrase my words.

I think the sovereign coin design is unusual from today's standards.

Today's coin themes are mostly about peace, love, and harmony; sometimes there are wars themes. But rarely a coin depicts killing, either a human or animal.
