Charles M. Schulz said, “all you need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” Chocolate makes a nice gift, but it’s almost immediately forgotten after Valentine’s Day. If you’re trying to find something a little more substantial than chocolate for your Valentine, look no farther than silver coins in Canada. The Royal Canadian Mint creates coins for all occasions. These three sets about love are a perfect way to demonstrate your love to your Valentine on the holiday and all year long.

One Coin Could Be the Start of a New Hobby
Coin collecting has never been thought of as an exciting hobby, but there’s more to coin collecting than meets the eye. Coin collecting helps you learn about history, culture and politics. Coins not only have monetary value, but they have historic and artistic values. Susanna Blunt’s depiction of the Queen has graced Canadian currency since 2003. Blunt is an amazing artist in her own right, starting early in a career in art. A collection of quarters over the years would provide different pictures of the Queen. Keep going back and you might even find coins that depict King George VI.
