I have the chance to buy one of these tourist-targeted medal sets. To be honest, the english side design is a bit cheesy but some of the medals are nice.

Can anyone provide input on value or mintage?

This is not an ordinary tourist set. It was made by Shenyang Mint, with excellent artwork. Normally it is the gilt version that is available on the market:

This version in your link is the so-called proof gilt version, with gold plating done before striking. So the medals do not look too shiny, with all the details retained.

As usual, the mintage is unknown, but there are few sales records on the web. The gilt version sells for $40-60 in China. The proof gilt version should be more valuable. I wouldn't mind paying 30% more than the final price.
