- New supernatural themed-coin. Back by popular demand! Canada's ghostly historical secret is the focus of our new Spooky Canada. It follows the success of our Haunted Canada coins issued between 2014 and 2016.
- Tilt the coin and a ghost appears. The two-image lenticular design shows a chilling encounter with the ghost of a former inmate—perhaps Patrick Whelan, at the HI Ottawa Jail Hostel in downtown Ottawa, not far from our Ottawa headquarters. The former jail is one of the most haunted places in Canada.
- Custom “spooky” packaging. Your coin is packaged in a custom folder that invites you to enter the old jail… if you dare. Swing the gated door open for a look inside— you’ll find images and a ghost story to share with (and scare) your family and friends.
