12 Days of the Canadian Mint Giveaway in Vancouver

December 13th, 2010 @ 1:00pm (PT) by Rebecca Bollwitt

Last month the Canadian Mint opened a boutique on Granville Street. Following the pavilion’s success during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games, their coins and collectibles are available for browsing and purchase until February, 2011. 

Royal Canadian Mint Pop-Up Shop on Granville

I have exclusively partnered with the Mint for a special contest running today until Christmas Eve. Each day a limited-edition winter sport silver hologram coin (valued at $71.95) will be up for grabs. Visit this post each day for a code, the first person who walks into the Mint at 752 Granville street and says the code to a staff member will win the coin. 

Codes are underlined in the “song” below and will be updated daily anytime between 11:00am and 3:00pm until December 24, 2010.

    Sweet! Those coins are beautiful. Too bad I don’t live closer to downtown :(

    I managed to get the 1st day of Christmas which is a beautiful coin. :)

    I only got there around 20 minutes after this was posted though, so if you’re in the area, you should definitely try to get there. Good luck to everyone else. I hope all the winners like their coin as much as I like mine, and I’ve got my fingers crossed for the grand prize now.
