When the Polar Bear was issued around a year ago, I ordered a tube of them. They came to me so badly damaged with rim dings and surface scratches, mars
and gouges that I returned them. That was the first, last and only time I ever returned any bullion product.
I think the Polar Bear and the Silver Arctic Fox are both well designed, good looking coins. RCM
broke my heart with their lack of quality control of the Polar
Bear issue and I don't trust them enough to give the fox a try. When I pay a >$10 per oz premium for bullion silver coins, I have expectations (like the coins
being undamaged) that I know the RCM
I find it sad, too. The Maple was the first silver bullion coin that I started my stack with, but the RCM
drove me away with their milk spots and damaged coins.
