Great idea but sure wish the coins were bigger! It would be nice if RCM could offer a much larger size. I would be more than happy to pay more for them.

        I literally thought that for the price your were getting a set of the coins not one little thing...you should've seen me shaking out the envelop looking for the rest.

        I DO NOT RECOMMEND FOR THE PRICE

          On the screen they look fine but considering the "absurd" size for the images, not to mention the "incredible" price, I cannot imagine the twit that came up with this idea?!
          I don't think all the people are looking at the size when making comments or understand the 2.5Gr.
          I think it's TOTAL waste of money!

          Comments about Silver Landmarks - Mintage: 10000 (2014):

          This product has "Landmarks" images that are in the U.S.A. however this "Coin Subscription" is "Limited to Canadian Subscribers-ONLY". So as a collector within the U.S. I am unable to consider the purchase this product. Also noted, these are issued of Solomon Island and it seems these silver wafers have no Canada connection along with no Canadian "Landmarks". Also noted this seems to be a newer type collection to "Subscribe To" but the date on these show 2014 but if you read in the description of this product(s), it states shipping will start as of Feb 2015, so I would think this would be a "2015-date" on this "New Product" "Subscription". As a coin collector these seem to have a "Great Beginning" of special places and "Landmarks" worldwide, but it seems there are too many "Over-Looked Items"!!

            Comments about Silver Landmarks - Mintage: 10000 (2014):

            You know, sometimes a collection comes along that is truly different than the norm and this happens to be one. Yes, it comes from the Solomon Islands; however, it still is a beauty of a set.

            I always look for something "different" that is offered for subscription and I will be looking forward to each separate wafer, that I receive, of these landmarks.

            It is not expensive to own and what great conversation this will make when either showing to my grandchildren, children or friends. So what that no landmarks of Canada are on these wafers? I already own a substantial collection of coins filled with the history of Canada and it will be interesting to hold a collection from elsewhere instead of always from the RCM.

            So, yes I can afford to purchase these wafers because they are truly inexpensive. Think about when you travel to these places and buy a souvenir and how much it costs you!!!

            Stop with the negativity about this collection as I give Kudos to the RCM for offering us unique items from other countries. Hopefully, other countries will promote our lovely coins as well.

            RCM, please continue to share the world with us.

              They are 1.8cm x 1cm i.e. roughly the size of a finger nail. A 2.5g silver bar sells for $2.50 this is 10x that at $25.95.
              Not worth it to me as a collector.
              The world landmarks are well chosen and for the Canadians commenting- did you see that they are not Canadian??? It is a Solomon Island set.
