When you drop by for the tweetup tomorrow at noon, we’ll be doing a 2010 poppy coin exchange. Bring your spare change and walk away with Canada’s newest coloured circulation coin! See you soon Vancouver!
OMG sooo cooool to see you holding the medal.Now I wish I had gone too.I love collecting coins.
Itâ€™s true â€“ the medals will be making a special appearance at our just opened Vancouver boutique. Stay tuned for dates + times!
didn’t get a chance to see it on granville during the olympics as the line up was WAY too long; the line up at the library during the paralympics was long as well but i caught a glimpse
having the medals available during a tradeshow was a treat as i got a picture from that; now i have to find it and put it on my phone tho
can’t wait to get new non-circulated poppy quarter, hope the line ups aren’t too bad
