Comments about 1/2 oz. Fine Silver 6-Piece Medallion Set - Discover China - Mintage: 5000 (2015):

The coin capsule is square, inside are 4 thin plastic pegs that holds each round coin. These pegs are very easy to break during shipment due to the weight of each coin. Once broken, the coin slides all over inside of the capsule and the sharp edges from the broken pegs scratches the silver coin. I ordered a set and 50% of these pegs were broken. Special packaging required.

      I am interested in the Terracata Warriors found & how they have been able to restore so many of them. The coins depict various landmark structures that are amazing engineering feats.
      If the Warrior, included with the set, had of been a little larger you might have seen the great detail involved in making the originals.

            The coins are beautiful works of art in their own right and very well struck.

            Case was bigger than I thought it would be, but it is very nicely designed with the "Discover China" logo embossed on the outside and also on the inside cover.

            The clear protective cases that the individual coins come in are square and not of the "air tight" variety. They tend to separate when taking them out of the display tray.

            The Ownership Certificate and the individual COA's for each coin are very nicely done and informative, but not serialized as it says in the product description.

            Overall a good value considering that I purchased it at a sale price with free expedited shipping, but even at the original release price, it's a very nice set.

                A:

                On the obverse you will find the Imperial Palace of Beijing. These are not produced by the Royal Canadian Mint and the issuing country is China. These are medallions and have no face value.

                You can find all this information on the Royal Canadian Mint website at www.mint.ca.
