      Comments about $50 for $50 Fine Silver Coin - Polar Bear (2014):

      I bought two coins as gifts for relatives who live overseas. The packaging does not reflect the quality of the coin. I would have even paid extra for a box if that was an option. Or...the Mint could have designed the card holding the coin with more elegance. Even a die-cut circle to see the coin through the card would have been nice. I did like the fact the coin itself was encased in plastic to prevent scratches.

              The entire reverse of the coin is beautiful. The head side had a matte finish which really emphasized the beauty of the design.

                Very disappointed that it did not come with the folder as shown. The snowman coins I bought did. Hard to give as a gift without the folder.
