I need one. I don't know why. But I need one.
As a coin collector and transformer fan I\'m confused why this isnt 1 troy ounce. In the US & Canada the collector coins always use the troy ounce (31.103 grams) as the common weight. This weighs in 30.76 grams where any other coin like the silver maple leaf, the Krugerand, etc all weigh 31.103 grams. I guess I\'ll call this the Toy Ounce!
I've never had the opportunity to say this before, but this is a badass move by Canada. Well done, those coins look great. I salute you.

Cool! I'd be tempted if they had these in the Post Office but...
They've done some great Star Trek stamp sets. Who knows, if Prime coins do well, they may do they same thing...I'd be all over a G1 package.
They might be listing just OP at the moment, given Peter Cullen's Canadian connection.

I don't know why this exists...
My trio of quarters arrived last Friday while I was on vacation. I was surprised at how quickly they shipped out.
The dollar is pretty cool, too.
Do I need to get these.....tilting towards....yes.....
Since you can sell anything by putting Optimus Prime's face on it, I want Optimus Prime toilet paper.

Art by Guido Guidi or Sarah Pitre-Durocher? I've seen both being mentioned...
The Royal Canadian Mint is responsible for coinage only - both regular currency and special edition currency. That's why these coins are legal tender in Canada (unless some special edition coins minted in the US, which are legal currency in like Latvia or some other strange country). (The Mint also mints coins for several other countries, too.) Flat currency (bills) are by the Bank of Canada (printed by a company under contract).
Stamps are printed and issued by Canada Post.
Sometimes all three work to release a commemorative set, but it's rare. They all are fairly independent entities, though, so even though the Mint made these coins (they're nicer in person), it has no effect on bills nor stamps. Doesn't mean we won't see OP stamps, but I'm sure someone needs to tell Canada Post about it. And alas, I really doubt we're going to see any TF related bank notes.
I bought the 25 cent one this past weekend... i'm debating whether I should buy the $25 one next lol....
I think it was Marcelo Matere who did artwork on the $0.25 while Sara Pitre-Durocher did the colors.
I'm gonna try to message Marcelo this weekend to find out for sure.
Those were my thoughts. Plus their high shipping prices.
