We need more Cow Bell !!! Open letter to Canadian Mint

Dan Hughes


RCM, where's the Cow Bell?

I noticed the Canadian Mint has now issued coins with the characters from the Looney Tunes cartoons. Sufferin' Succotash! Have you gotten so desperate for designs you're now doing cartoon scenes? I haven't seen a coin for a Kitchen Sink yet? How about it? What about a Cow Bell coin? You could even put a teeny tiny working Cow Bell on it, make it a Hologram Colorized Gilt Ultra High Relief with a Murano Glass Cow Bell. Instead of your usual denominations of $1, $2, $3, $4,$5, $8, $10, $15, $20, $25, $30, $50 $100 or $200, be creative and do something like a $37 coin. Maybe you could find an animal to put on it as well other then the Moose, Polar Bear, Arctic Fox, Beaver, Wolf, Antelope or Loon that you redo a new coin on every other year?

All of the above in jest (kind of). Getting at the point of total frustration with the Canadian Mint just spitting out coins. Trying to collect them all to make complete sets is really only practical if you buy the raw coins. Trying to keep up with 69 or 70 grades is way too expensive for the average collector.
