Wow. More coins

I've blogged it before, and I'll blog it again.

When it comes to pumping out commemerative coins, I really wish the Royal Canadian Mint would turn it down a bit.

Today, the Mint announced their plans for commemerative coins for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. There's going to be:

- 12 quarters commemerating Olympic sports (10 Olympic, 2 Paralympic to be specific)

- 2 more Lucky Loonies

- 3 quarters commemerating Olympic medalists.

The first Olympic sports quarter - commemerating curling - comes out on February 23rd. And then, the quarters will be slowly rolled out over the next 3 years. The two loonies will be coming out in 2008 and 2010, respectivly.
