I really like these. I believe that I've even seen an ad for a typeset of Canadian colorized quarters. I think it was in CoinWorld. Does the color come off? :ninja:

I really like these colorized quarters. What a neat Canadian type set they'd make.

Very nice. I like the colorized coins. It's tempting to start a set. (I really don't need another set to be ignoring right now).
