I don't normally go for this style of coin but...I need to have one so I can say "I have a 'blowie'"!

Of course I could just wander outside with a swatter to get one but it would not be the same. Not sure how I could press a real one onto a coin.

And the Ulysses Butterfly. Issue price $15. Part of 6 coins in the new Bright Bugs Series. Released February 3rd 2014. Expect a new Mint Issue from the RAM soon.

These remind me very much of the Perth Mint Backyard Bugs coins aimed at collector kids.

Now I will have to find pages and covers to store them in.

No wonder I am seriously thing of giving the whole thing up....Not Happy Jack!

Welcome aboard the good ship Marketing! Now do you get why I gave up on this crud years ago?

If it can't be got out of circulation, its not a coin, its a souvenir, IMO.

I was thinking same. The thing is they always have different packaging so I just use Vario pages in 1c, 2c, 3c and 4c and just use what fits.

Isn't it AWSOME when you really don't give a hoot about the packaging as it doesn't affect how I store the COIN DanceDance2Dance
