These are the same small fourth-ounce size & weight as the $20 for $20 coins at only 7.96 grams but $5 more for the colorization. Pass!

I just recently picked up TRUE NORTH and GLISTENING SNOW. Two really nice,yes really nice coins. Canada has many treasures ,not just the MAPLE LEAF. I like 150 years in Canada theme coins. Let’s not forget the Royal Canadian Mint (R.C.M.) .
