        I wish the mint made this coin in 1 oz gold. This coin is nice design but really really small. It is not worth the money at this micro size.

        2015 - 25cent Pure Gold Coin

        By tent

        from NT Canada

        Pros

        • Small Treasure

        Cons

          Best Uses

            this is a wonderful collection product. I love cute but quality driven items and ordered the Chipmunk and Bear coin just to see... and they are really very special for people who collect small valuable 'things' even if 'things' is not the right word for it. I do hope that these small coins become an annual addition to the CMint collections.

            I am really happy with these little gold coins. They are very well minted and look to be flawless. I love the bear design. They are however very small (about the size of a shirt button). I knew they were going to be small as they are only 0.5 grams. I don't understand the people complaining how small they are. It says in the description they are only 1/2 gram and 11mm in diameter. This will be a unique edition to my collection. I will continue to collect more, as they are very affordable. I can not afford to collect larger gold coins.

                This coin was added to my coin and bank note collection. There is something about gold coins besides their precious metal value. The craftsmanship is first rate. But that is not surprising the Canadian Mint never lets me down I'm always very pleased with my purchase!!!

                As gold is a lot of money, thought this was a good start on gold for the price. It is very, very small and so glad it came in a case. That way the tiny gold coin will not get lost, LOL. Something I will not buy again. Just too small. Will save for a bigger coin. Not even sure if I will give it to my son for Christmas.
