Celebrate Year of the Rabbit at the Mint on Granville / by Granville Street

The Year of the Tiger is coming to an end. A hard-earned year with twists and turns and most importantly, well-earned payoffs. But now, quickly approaching comes the Year of the Rabbit. Known for its carefree personality and good taste, the rabbit has one of the most fortunate characteristics of the twelve animal signs. With that in mind, what does the Rabbit New Year have in store for you?

My advice, start the Rabbit New Year with some GOLD! The Royal Canadian Mint located at 752 Granville street is having an event for the upcoming new year. Come celebrate a new year of good fortune by holding an actual gold bar, striking a "rabbit" medallion, as well as many other things to see and do. In Chinese culture, gold is a very lucky color symbolizing wealth and happiness. And now, who doesn't want a year of wealth and happiness? I sure do! These good luck charms are sure to get you some good prospects in the upcoming Rabbit New Year!

NOTE: Come early, there will be free prizes for the first 88 visitors.
