HOW TO ORDER CANADA'S MILLION-DOLLAR GOLD COIN

In the 15 May edition of the C.N.A. E-Bulletin of the Canadian
Numismatic Association, editor John Regitko discussed his test of
the Royal Canadian Mint's ordering department.  He wrote:

"You’ll never guess what I did…and I kid you not! I called the Royal
Canadian Mint’s order desk and asked the lady that answered the phone,
Vicky, if I could order one of the $1 million gold coins over the
telephone. I thought she would either turn me down flat, hang up the
phone, or refer me to another department that handles gold bullion.
“Sure,” she answered. It would be two-point-something million and that
she would have to check the price. Obviously, pricing is not specified
on her price list. Neither is it on the Mint’s Website. I stated that
I would, no doubt, have to charge it on a Platinum Visa credit card.
“No problem” for Vicky. I wondered if they worked on commission or
some bonus incentive, but didn’t bother asking (that’s a column for
another day)."
