Darrin Lee Unser –

As a member of the Royal Canadian Mint’s (RCM) Mint Master’s Club, I get 4-days advance notice & chance to order before the public release of all RCM coins. I don’t collect any colorized coins from any world Mint as a matter of personal preference. But I did purchase the beautiful, action-packed design 2016 $20 for $20 RCM Batman v Superman (TM) silver coins (the 5 per household limit) with the great fight scene between the two superheroes.
CoinNews readers can purchase all RCM coins directly at the RCM official websites in English at http://www.mint.ca or in French (Canadian) at http://www.monnaie.ca
If you press on any of the light blue hyperlinks phrase “Affiliate Link To Product Page.” in this article or any RCM article by CoinNews.net, you are agreeing, as CoinNews.net is a member of the RCM’s Affiliate Program that CoinNews Media LLC company (owned by the Unser family) will receive a payment equal to 5% of your total coin purchases. This similar situation is also true for the
CoinNews.net articles about The Perth Mint Australia’s affiliate program. What a wonderful way for us CoinNews.net readers to indirectly “donate” to the Unser family coin blog website to defray their costs of operating this great, informative website. Mike Unser stated in one article that his high-end camera & photographic items cost him over $3000 & he gets great, detailed, high-quality photos for his articles here which I really appreciate for sure, especially since this website is his part-time hobby outside his regular full-time job.
Thanks Darrin Lee Unser, Mike Unser & Rhonda (Kay) Unser for all your hard work keeping this coin blog website going for both new & experienced numismatic collectors!

Darrin Lee Unser –

The RCM this morning today March 2 by e-mail revealed for the first time the sales figure on the 2015 $20 for $20 Superman (TM) silver coin at only 68% (you have it in your last blog on this series as “Unknown”) It is the lowest sales figure of all 4 $20 for $20 coins issued last year! Plus, yesterday March 1 the RCM sent an e-mail out about its new face value silver $20 & $25 coins special holder for all 20 coins from 2011-2015. Very nice box with color graphics of all coins.

Happy collecting Mr. Unser!
