A lone eastern white pine, shaped by steady winds, rises from a small rocky island in Ontario’s Georgian Bay. In the distance, stylized forests cower under a stormy sky that seems to glow with energy as Mother Nature unleashes her power. Viewing the reverse under a black light (included) activates the coin’s specialized technology, allowing the lightning bolts to radiate across the sky with a stunning life-like intensity and exceptional luminosity.

    first coin in series was amazing, second coin fell short with just being a plain ordinary coin, had to call the mint to verify it was the correct coin for the series because it has no black light technology and it does not fit the theme of nature, just a plain coin with a bird on it.

        Just received the third coin in the series, slightly better than the second coin but still no where near the first coin as it was advertised. Now I can understand why the mint wants all subscribers to wait until the last coin before they will give you the presentation case!! Because, if they were to send out the case together with the first coin, many of the series subscribers would have cancelled out after seeing the extremely disappointing second coin in the series! Now, subscribers got stuck, they either accept the entire series or they have to keep their coins in that plastic pouch. RCM, way to go to disappoint many of your loyal customers!!!

          Very disappointing second coin, makes me question my investments with RCM altogether. 4 years for a full series, of which only the first coin holds true to theme? RCM is just grabbing cash with this series now when it could have made it truly unique. Wish I just bought the first coin.

              Comments about 1 oz. Fine Silver 4-Coin Subscription – Weather Phenomenon – Mintage: 8000 (2015):

              Normally a subscription series with RCM completes within a year or so, but this one takes some 4 years, I thought it was due to the backlit technology that takes time to evolve, but I was completely wrong. The first coin in the series is exceptional, however the second coin that comes a year later is a total disappointment, it has basically nothing to do with 'weather phenomenon' at all and the coin is absolutely ordinary at best. I also have to wait two more years to get the coin case to house these coins since they are all simply come in a plastic wrapping and there is no easy way to keep the flashlight together with the first coin together, I am pretty sure many of us will have lost the flashlight, or that the flashlight will be out of commission by the time the case come in two more years later. I hope that at the end of the series when the case does come in 2018 or later, the case BETTER also has a slot for the flashlight in addition to the four coins in the series!!

              On the edge with this series, right now, and only two coins in.

              First coin was excellent, but the second features the birds and berries far more prominently than anything weather-related, with no apparent use of the blacklight feature that so strikingly characterized the first coin, making me wonder whether that second coin is really part of the weather series at all. It's a lovely coin in its own right, but as part of the weather series? Not so much.

              Will the series redeem itself? Stay tuned...

              I liked the first coin but I have cancelled my 2 orders because the second coin sucks plus customer service can't give me any reassurance that the 3rd and 4th coin won't be like the 2nd coin. Tis series is a perfect example of false advertising. If this series was a band they would make it on the chart for one hit wonders.

                I was under the impression that all the coins in the series would work with the black light flashlight. The second one doesn't. What a disappointment! I'm cancelling the rest of the order.

                The first coin is pretty.
                I received the corroded battery, "stuck" on/off button, "doesn't work" flashlight a few months later.
                After two, 1 hour long waits on the phone for customer service and with replies of "I will get the customer service to call you back" and "i will send you a label through the email", i am still stuck with a useless "free" flashlight

                  The first in the series was very beautiful and the black light make the lightning jump out very nicely. I just received the second of the series and although it is quite pretty and colourful the black light appears to no effect on the coin. Unlike the lightning on the first coin that jumps right out at you this one only seems to reflect the light back at you and even that may be saying too much for its effect. Hopefully the last 2 coins of the series take greater advantage of the supplied black light.
