They look Ok, but the weight is a bit different from the catalog. Could be a sign of forgery?

The time to buy is when it is cheap and others ignore so good score.      Small proof gold pandas have been somewhat ignored recently too.     In time medals will become popular.     Coins are kings today and there is still a good supply.      Supply is finite, what happens when we have more buyers then supply?....

It is difficult to take coins back to mainland.  Collectors and dealers want high value items only.

Modern Chinese Coins / Re: Medal ranking list from Huang Ruiyong

Most people paid the early bird fee and entered the coin show at 8 a.m.  I did not pay the 300 yuan and waited, along with a small hand full of people, until 10 a.m. when I was permitted to enter for 20 yuan.  At 10 a.m., the show was very, very crowded.  I spent 2 hours working my way around the room.  I found this set just as I was completing my first circuit at noon.  I would guess that every other attendee had seen the medal set before I found it.  "Little or no interest" is probably inappropriate.  There was "no interest" by an attendee other than me.  As a medal collector, I was pleased to find it and purchase it.  Still, I would not want to try to sell it at the coin show in Kowloon in early August or at the Stacks, Bowers & Ponterio auction which will accompany this coin show.  Often, coin forum participants have indicated that Chinese collectors strongly prefer to collect coins, not medals.  I have wondered whether they were correct.  After seeing so many Chinese people ignore this Archaeological Silver Set, I have been forced to agree that it does matter whether an item is a coin or a medal.

Today, I sent the set to NCS for conservation.  I found enough haze on some of the silver medals and decided professional help was needed.

"...There was little or no interest in this set..."

Interesting. They know something we don't know?
