I had just posted as well the new releases and then I saw yours, so I deleted. The Bison (EHR) AND LAKE Louise Coin look really nice.

The EHR coins do look nice... The Gold Bison EHR is showing as sold out already though.

I really liked that gold bison but the price...

I did purchase the silver bison and the Lake Louise High Relief terrain silver coin.

I deleted my post to add more depth to my rant, so for others my original complaint was:

"Can you all save me a Lake Louise coin to purchase tomorrow morning? I really love how they left the FV/size the same....."

But I hit send before typing out my full thought, so here goes.

I understand you have to recirculate and re-imagine ideas and always add a new twist. I'm all for that. But I'm disappointed they put out these two lakes together in such a short time in completely different styles. I feel like these lakes should be part of a set. And if you're going to re-imagine that design in 10 years....so be it. I'd likely buy the first set and the second set. I collect based off of geography and this just disappoints me.

The Moraine Lake coin was part of a 2 coin PHOTO series by Peter McKinnon and also featured Mount Rundle. Neither coins sold out. The Lake Louise coin is extreme high relief terrain with a smudge of blue showing the lake. Totally different concept. I hope this helps.

@vonigohcr: Thanks once again for compiling the list of new releases and posting it here on CCF.

My wallet escapes without a scratch once again! Maybe something in October will intrigue me.

I ordered Lake Louise today with CDN.

The bison coin is a follow-up to last year's bald eagle (5000 mintage vs 4000 in 2020). I didn't find this coin attractive, apart from high relief. Nevertheless, I may order one tomorrow with Mint using my points.

I really thought there was going to be a coin celebrating the 100 Years of the TTC ( Toronto transit commission)
I partly remember doing a coin talk survey where they said they were considering doing one.

I'm disappointed it didn't happen

I actually like the Moraine coin. And I'm sure I'll like this year's coin, I'm just upset and perplexed at this not being a set. I get it, the Moraine was a wonderful photo and they did it as a set by the photographer, but that doesn't give it a pass in my book.

I feel like there could be a nice lakes set like the national parks one that @commems recently featured.

It could be scheduled for a mid-month release. Also, there are still at least two full releases this year - October and November - never say never!

I realize that the TTC was founded in September 1921, which makes September the ideal month for a commemorative piece, but the Mint doesn't always release its coins in sync with exact anniversary dates.

PS I can't find any information on an Act passed to authorize a circulating coin (probably too local of a subject), so a non-circulating collector coin appears to be the only possibility.

The same topic/theme is commemorated on coins of different sizes/denominations/composition/artistic style, etc. all the time. It is one way that Mints of the world attempt to appeal to the broadest range of collectors possible. There's no "rule" that similarly-themed coins need to be similar in design and sold as a set.

An example from my own collecting experience: In 2012, the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede was celebrated with coin issues from the Mint. There was a copper-nickel 25-cent coin enhanced with colour, a 36 mm silver dollar and a pair of five-ounce, large format coins (one in silver - FV $50, one in gold - FV $500) that shared a design. Each of the three coin types was designed by a different artist, each had a distinctly different artistic style, each was a different denomination and none of the coins were packaged together as a set. I happily bought the silver dollar and never looked back!

Obviously, you're free to feel however you'd like about the Mint's approach to these two recent lake-themed coins, but I thought some context might help.

While I'm a definite fan of the series, the National Parks $20 silver coins that were recently posted are in the collection of zhuyuecai. He or she deserves the credit.

No colored silver proof set (yet) as we had one 3 years in a row. Not sure at this point if the series will be continued, we have two more months. To be fair, I'm kind of hoping we don't get one just to save cash. I'm perfectly happy with the two proof sets that already exist this year, plus the specimen and various uncirculated sets/cards (I buy at least one of most of those).

It wouldn't surprise me to see some sort of proof set included in the October release. The Bluenose won its first Fishermen's Trophy in October of 1921, so October 2021 marks a true centennial anniversary.

It's possible the set would feature a coloured 36 mm Bluenose silver dollar vs. a 36 mm Bluenose silver medal, and be more like the 2020 75th Anniversary of VE-Day proof set which did not include coloured coins (other than the SD) vs. the recent proof sets that include a medal plus coloured coins.

I guess we'll know more over the next month!

Pure Silver EHR Coin - Lake Louise:

Although I do like the coin, I totally agree with a review left on the RCM. The lake color should be turquoise and not blue. Probably not a big deal for some people, but I think the RCM got this wrong.
