    I'm struggling with the choice whether or not to get the gold 1/4 proof Queens beast It's hard to justify it as an investment, it could do well, I wouldn't be shocked if it turns out to be a popularly collected set but as a new range and without any history it's guesswork. At £455 it doesn't seem like it's leaving a ton of room for profit in future Getting two 2017 bullion sovereigns with a mint mark instead seems a much safer bet.. but it's just not as sexy and there isn't as much potential upside, but no real potential low side either hmm I don't want to be suckered in too much into collecting side of things, but @Phrophet800 pictures just make it look so appealing ahhh

    I have not gone for the proof. The mintage is too high and at 2 per year i prefer to focus on the bu. If it has been 1000 mintage and £375 I would have been a buyer. I don't like to buy things that are almost certain to lose money in absolute terms. It's bad enough betting on the gold price and currency Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The original designs where much nicer but didn't quite turn out to good...that's probably why they didn't release but after seeing the success of the 2016 then they pushed it out for release.

    I think the Christmas rush has a lot to answer for and we are also seeing a highly competitive situation at dealers. I buy what I like generally)) but the preponderance of [emoji209] pandas is very much like the safety of film sequels. These things take large amounts of capital and time to produce and nobody wants to have a duffer on their hands. In the west we don't like to take risks and there are limitations to how fartowards traditional Chinese culture we are willing to go at this point. It has been put to me by "trouble" on the CCF board fats many releases would not be bought at all by Chinese purchasers. I argued that many Chinese releases would be totally alien to the western mind. The truth is that some westerners enjoy buying exotic Chinese merchandise and some Chinese are very happy to buy things available to the west and not available in China. Witness the success of the MCM govmint moon panda project. Almost all of these were bought in the west and there were 5,000 of the 1oz coins being minted. For the future I believe that quality will be the deciding factor as well as mintage. Some of the recent crop may have been rushed to market but the Panda Lunar is consistently excellent quality, the bimetallic 4th panda expo was inspired and the Nanjing Panda 16 was spot on. Compare these things with some of the rubbish produced by Western mints including the USA. Look at the Perth mint dragon and Phoenix compared to the Chinese equivalent and it is clear just how lucky we are to have access to these beautiful limited mintage and availability items.

    I'd say NO, this coin looks fantastic . £4500+ for the set if you want all ten for 2.5 Oz. If it's a 1 off purchase maybe hoping that people will start collecting in the future and want to back date but that's not to say that they won't re mint the coin in future years. If go for 1/4 Bu and 2017 sov. Or if you have money to burn go for it

    It is very expensive which can't be denied but it is a great looking coin. I don't regret getting one and I'm looking forward to getting a full set. I think its a set for the future myself but I would say that [emoji6] Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk

    Finally succumbed and purchased a 1/4 queens beast lion from Atkinsons. I am a bit concerned given @Cornishfarmer comments regarding these and the fact that Atties keep appearing with these every few weeks with a batch of 50 or so when they are no longer being minted." ?,! Regardless, I have pulled the trigger and will see what turns up. I suspect that they may be purchasing rejects from the us market. Also pulled the trigger wit h goldsilver-be a few months ago only to be advised that they were returning stock t and never got this coin.GSBE said that the quality was that poor they sent stock back to the RM. Maybe more than Atties care to do? We shall see. Only hope that they retain some sort of premium due to collector demand and that qc improve from now on. Ha , come on its the Royal mint after all. As a side note had I received a postal promotion from the mint for the queens beast series which looked very professional, if only they could replicate with the product, delivery, quality and general customer service.
