Admit it. You are caught up in the media-driven mania of the Royal Wedding. Now you know how you can celebrate, royally. Just look what the Royal Canadian Mint has for you.
Are you interested in adding some unique items to your cryptid coin collection? How about some Sasquatch quarters from the Royal Canadian Mint? Why didn’t they have these done in time for the Sasquatch Summit? Well, at least they are available for Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, and for those post-Royal Wedding parties, right?!! LOL.
But seriously, serious collectors will be after these items.
Here’s what the Royal Mint notes about these gems:
Shipping begins May 2
First issue in the 3-coin series. A terrific collectible for kids of all ages!
Children of all ages will be captivated by this large coloured coin and its mysterious theme. It’s presented in a full-colour folder that tells the fascinating story of Sasquatch and includes a pull-out map showing where it was last seen—let the intrigue begin!
A surprising aerial perspective of Sasquatch walking among snow covered trees, leaving behind a trail of large footprints in the snow.
Tracking a mysterious creature from Canada’s North.
Is Sasquatch myth or missing link? First Nations legends abound with haunting tales of a giant, human-like creature lurking in the mountain forests of Canada’s Yukon, British Columbia and northern Ontario.
They are not alone. In Asia, people claim to have seen Yeti, and in the western United States, witnesses describe a very similar Bigfoot—a very fast, very hairy and strong “ape-man” walking on two feet, “As big as a bear standing on its hind legs,” they say. Sasquatch is reputed to stand about 3 m (10 ft) tall and weigh 227 kg (500 lb)—and looking at the huge footprints it leaves behind, believers say the truth can’t be far o£ . What do you think?Royal Canadian Mint
Well, heck, no one said the writers at the royal mint were going to give a comprehensive examination of the entire history of Sasquatchery in their info, correct? Still, these coins look rather sharp and the International Cryptozoology Museum will need some for its collection, of course.
If that’s not enough, there’s, wait for it, MORE:
How about the new Multi-colored mythical creature coins from the Cook Islands?
Below them on that linked page here, there are Mermaid coins too.
Can anyone donate these Mythical Creatures and Merbeing coins to the International Cryptozoology Museum? Sure hope so. If so, please make contact via this form, here. Thank you!!
Part of a 7 coin set available at this link.
I bet you’ll be tempted to add these to your collection.
And remember, as the Royal Canadian Mint states, these are only available while supplies last!
