Just a great looking coin.

Im so happy

By  Steady

from Boise, id


Of course i love it. The polar bears are thicker than the rest and Apmex sends very hi grade rounds... And ships them in sleeves and foam.. And sweet little boxes. What's not to love? The price is right too

Arctic Series Rocks!

Started out with a plan to complete a basic bullion collection of SMLs (BU). But once I got started, I fell in love with Canadian 38mm coins. Really dig the 3-coin, 1.5 oz series! Awesome that I was able to find all 3 in this series at APMEX... No hunting; one order! Arrived in near perfect condition.

I got this coin because i wanted to see what the 1.5 oz size was like and I love it. It is pretty similar to a 1 oz coin except that it is very thick. That extra half ounce sure does make a difference. This coin has a beautiful design and a crisp reeded edge as well.

My favorite coin so far!!!

Unique size, iconic image

By  Hiker5

from Columbus, OH



  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Value (low premium over spot)


  • Few Milk Spots

I like RCM's 1.5 oz size, as it produces a thick, attractive coin. I also appreciate that RCM uses iconic animals and natural world images in their coins - something I wish the US Mint would do more often. I did find a few milk spots just above the polar bear's back, but none were large enough to justify the hassle of sending back. I would check yours twice when you get it, though.
