  1. I am so delighted to see the sponsor of the series making great headway with quality. Panda and Temple is such a great combination and is one of the few modern medal ranges to have made its way into the new panda collector book #3. This is a good sign. As I said in the bought thread I have ordered just one set for my own collection and I will have these graded by NGC. Special detail techniques used to enhance Panda fur. Micro carving of dragon on steps. In #1 this was empty space. See also the writing in the eaves of the levels. On the Panda side the die polishing process and the sand blasting of matte areas has been improved too. This is an early production prototype of the antique version and I must say it's looking great.
  2. Today I bought 3 of the new Temple Panda medal. A bimetallic 199 mintage, a brass with 99 mintage and a brass antique with 69 mintage. There will be Silver variants too. http://www.numicconnection.com
  3. That old sovereign bug.. I have a dose of it myself
  4. They got tusks baby!
  5. Some more good news guys .. the first part of the graded coins from April is now back in London however the second part has not yet been finalized by NGC and of course I am in the USA till 31st. So it looks like coins will be back to you first week in June. For those that travel. The Mojitos in the Virgin Heathrow clubhouse are great and Delta Diamonds [emoji184] now get access again on Premium Economy tickets.
  6. I understand the original was a debased 75% silver coin that the Europeans use for trade because they did not want to bring too many of the eight escudos coins into the states.
  7. All of our coins are safely in the USA The TSA agent was keen to talk Coins with me
  8. Another few coins sent in for grading. Only one more packed which is being sent by an American from youtube to me over in Florida but so far we are sending 170 coins over to NGC for grading. Last time it was about 145 and the time before that 117 coins. It is interesting to see what the flavour of the month is for grading each time. Top choices for grading this time: 2017 Perth Mint Swan 2017 Peter Rabbit 2017 Tuvalu Dragon 2017 Netherlands Lion 2017 Silver Proof Krugerrand
  9. Some more grading entries Flying to New Orleans tomorrow
  10. I am delighted to announce that the sponsor of the magnificent Temple of Heaven panda medal has donated one of the 199 bimetallic medals minted to be a prize in this free member prize draw exclusively for members of the silver forum. this is the second in the panda Temple of Heaven series of medals and this one features a massively improved design for the panda, and significant additional detailing for the Temple of Heaven itself. To enter all you need to do is to reply to this message and put the next available number in the reply. The closing date will be midnight UK time on 31 May 2017. A winning number will be drawn at random and the medal will be sent direct buy the sponsor to the winner. GOOD LUCK!!
  11. 2017 Lion Dollar Love this coin
  12. They have taken up to 3 weeks! Always track on USPS app
  13. Lets take a look at some more of the ones that have been graded... This is the MS version of the Rooster - It looks almost as good as the Proof. The Small Copper Trigos Medal Nice the way they leave the cut away at the bottom so you can see the serial number. The COA has the serial number and the certificate number too. A 1937 old penny - there are only a very few ever graded better than this one. Almost the top graded MS66 Sovereign from 1925
  14. You did better than me as always .... I only got 69's and you scored 2 70's if I remember
