$5,000 / month

I have taken on a few challenges that only a few collectors have managed to complete. Those challenges include building top sets for Modern Canadian Commemorative coins. Being one of the most prolific Mints in the World, this challenge has become a $5,000 per month expenditure (investment). Just to stay current on these sets will easily set you back $2000-$2500 a month. This has everything to do with the sheer volume of coins that the Mint produces annually.

In the case of the S$20 series, I truly believe only 3 of us will ever complete this set. About 315 coins reside in this set, with many of the rarer issues selling for almost $1000 each. The cost to complete this set with top grade coins is about $60,000, with about a dozen issues that are nearly impossible to find or are already residing in the greatest collections. If you are up for a challenge, a really daunting and frustrating challenge, and are blessed with a great deal of disposable income, then you should attempt the Canada S$20 Commemorative set! My hat is off to Dan, Dave, Paul and Ali who have devoted vast amounts of time and resources into building the registry and the greatest sets there within.
