I got a MB Souvenir - probably everyone else did as well. I don't know what they are good for but yay! Very Happy

I wonder what plant the leaves come from?

Looks like the provinces are being released in the order they joined Confederation - so if my theory is correct the releases should be in the following order - Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Manitoba, North West Territories, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island, Yukon, Saskatchewan, Alberta, Newfoundland and Nunavut, unless they do the territories last.


So far so good

Besides all the Canadian Souvenirs having Maple Leaves at the top, the first 4, ON, QC, NS, NB had the provincial bird featured at the top and then there was Manitoba with the bison.

So far I am 5 out of 5 for the Canadian Souvenirs - I will receive 2 more (BC and PEI) and then I will have to travel to the remaining provinces and territories in order to receive them.

I think the leaves are from the Mapleoak tree

and there is Manitoba. I am curious what animal that is supposed to be... and we're known for Polar Bears?


I believe that's a bison calf ... to go along with the bison head above it.

I'm just glad ours shows a spring scene and not a winter scene.

And how does one purchase or otherwise receive said souvenirs? Is it a purchase system, or based on number of finds or....?

Just asking... Laughing

For most souvenirs you need to find a related cache. i.e. for a provincial souvenir, find at least one cache in that province

Thanks, ertyu, for the information. Be nice to get even one find, nicer to get one in my own territory. Still can't find the one purported to be in Rankin Inlet.
