BUY THE BOOK WAAAAAY BEFORE THE COIN

Joseph D. McCarthy writes: "For years folks like Aaron Feldman
and Dave Bowers have been recommending "Buy the book before
the coin.  Tell Dave he has been right but he didn't know why.
In this case it took one hundred years after the book was
written before the coin was even made.  2008 is the 100th
anniversary of the publication of the book 'Anne of Green
Gables', and the Royal Canadian Mint is releasing a
Commemorative quarter.”

"Cherish Anne of Green Gables with this unique gift and
keepsake. In 1908, the world was captivated by Anne of
Green Gables, a wonderful story by Lucy Maud Montgomery
that recounts the childhood adventures of a spirited,
red-haired orphan named Anne Shirley. Today, people still
flock to Prince Edward Island to discover the charming
sights — and with this exclusive coin from the Royal Canadian
Mint, they can forever cherish its beloved character and
heroine.  It’s the perfect addition to your Anne of Green
Gables™ collection—or the perfect gift for your favourite
fan of Anne!

"Details of the celebrations being planned and “all things
Anne”, including the RCM’s coin, becoming available in
mid-April 2008, can be found at www.anne2008.com."
