Some of the Canadian 2016 Uncirculated Sets mistakenly include a coin from last year, the Royal Canadian Mint said on Thursday, Jan. 28.
Released on Jan. 12, the annually issued collector product has this year’s editions of the two-dollar, one-dollar, 50-cent, 25-cent, 10-cent and 5-cent coins. The uncirculated coin to check out is the one-dollar.
"In some instances, a 2015-dated one-dollar coin was mistakenly included in the set, rather than a 2016-dated one dollar coin," the Royal Canadian Mint told buyers of the set.
The Mint said an assembly error was responsible for the affected sets, and it advises customers to inspect theirs. Those with the wrong dollar may be returned for replacement by calling the Mint at 1-800-267-1871.
"We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. The Mint is committed to continuous improvement and we are currently reviewing our processes," it added.
The Royal Canadian Mint said returned sets will be replaced as soon as possible and noted that serial numbers may be different on replacement sets.
