Vincent Price once said, “it’s as much fun to scare as to be scared.” Almost everyone loves October. The weather is pleasant, not too hot nor too cold. Pumpkin spices, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, linger in the air. Football season keeps us busy. And the end of the month culminates in a huge celebration with lots of candy and costumes. Halloween has to be one of the most anticipated holidays of the year. Combine your love of Halloween and coins with these collector’s items from the Royal Canadian Mint and Monarch Precious Metals.

It makes a nice addition to a coin collection when the collector loves Halloween and all things autumn.
Werewolf Tombstone Bullion
This bullion bar from Monarch Precious Metals is truly unique, as no two pieces are the same. It is hand-stamped with “R.I.P.” and features a scary, spooky werewolf howling at the moon. The piece is hand-polished and coloured to give it a special, eerie vibe. The reverse of the bar is stamped with the weight – 2 troy ounces, purity – .999 fine Ag, and the Monarch logo. There were less than 1,000 of these bars minted, so it truly is a limited edition.
