  1. China 5 Blessings 2014 1oz silver coin. Gorgeous!
  2. Hi all! I'm in Shanghai and picked up my 2018 Panda! So happy. I love my Pandas! Have 2000-2018 BU, 1997 in original mint plastic, 2014 Lunar Panda, a few commemorative Pandas. Btw 2000 Panda is not shown. To be graded.
  3. PS was advised to delay large purchases until next summer. High mintage will drag down prices once the euphoria passes. Just repeating what I was told by my trusted Chinese coin advisor/supplier.
  4. I'm presently in Shanghai. Got the call today. Picking up my reserved 2018 Pandas on Monday at Bank of China branch. So excited! Beautiful coin. Now have 2000 - 2018 silver pandas.
  5. Thanks augur! I'm looking forward to displaying them. I'm in China at the moment but will return around Xmas. Will pick up a bunch of 2018 silver Pandas from The Bank of China in about two weeks. I have a few unboxings to do. I love my Pandas? looking forward to chatting with you and other members and learn the ropes. thanks again! Kublai
  6. Provisions are already in place under the Comex regulations to ensure any and all contracts be settled for cash in the event of any unforeseen circumstance. The game has always been rigged. Not sure how much longer it can last. The new oil/Yuan/gold market in Shsnghsi, in conjunction with the already operational gold market, will start operations within 2 months. I'm presently in China and the news is out. Tick tick tick...
  7. Crypto gold coin or not, there will be a reset. Debt worldwide is unmanageable today and it will only get worse. When the SHTF, and it will, some late Friday afternoon, most likely after 4pm EST when world markets are closed, the Comex will settle up all contracts in cash. The reset is in. How do you then value PMs? Easy, debt vs. Gold. How much debt vs. How much gold? You have all seen the predictions. Will it be $10,000, $20,000, $50,000 per oz? What of silver? $600, $900, $3,000? Impossible? Why are China, Russia, Germany and even Turkey been buying gold hand over fist for years? In the meantime I keep stacking on a regular basis snd now am diversifying my PMs to include numismatic coins. This is new to me. I enjoy learning and having fun collecting while I wait for the Monday morning we will all wake up to.
  8. Thank you very much! I will check that out. Much appreciated.
  9. Sorry but nothing comes up in my search for EMK. I'm new to numismatics. Maybe you can be more specific? Much appreciated.
  10. Thank you very much! I'll check it out.
  11. Hi all, i have come across a 2000 China 1 oz silver gold gilded panda coin. When I inquired from the seller that I can't find any record on this coin he indicated that a German firm gilded 1000 coins of this year. Is this bs? Does anyone have any knowledge about this? Thanks
  12. It's on it's way home! Can't wait.
  13. Excellent information re. spotting. I have a 2017 and 2018 on order. They look great and by the comments here I'm very anxious to see them. Thanks to everyone for sharing.
  14. My first post. Novice collector. My favorite to date is the 2016 China 1 Oz Silver Panda Moon Festival Medal NGC GEM Proof but I have a few new coins on order that I'm excited about.
  15. Thanks Agpanda, yes, Pandas are my passion. I'm fortunate to have a very nice collection started. I'll go check you out now.
  16. Hi all, my uncle introduced me to collecting Canadian and US silver coins in the early 1960's. I owe him a great debt of gratitude. He gave me a mint 1964 JFK 50 cent silver coin to get me started. I still have it to this day. After graduating from university in the spring of 1979 I was fortunate enough to join a precious metals and forex trading firm as a customer service rep. I learned a lifetime lesson about the madness of crowds during the PM craze then crash that ensued. I also learned a lot about PM bars and coins. I loved my time there. When I left in the doldrums of the mid 80's I had graduated to PM & Forex trader. I learned about technical analysis at the foot of great European masters. My experience there taught me so much and shaped my future. I retired in 2008 at the age of 49 and have spent my time trading online from home for my own account. I have always held, flipped, stacked gold and silver since then but I never got involved in collecting coins. I travel internationally for pleasure a few times per year and on my last visit to China my fiancée introduced me to the gem and PM markets that abound there. This is when I developed an interest in collecting principally silver coins especially Pandas. I learned quite a bit there and now wish to expand my horizon to world silver coins. Aside from my extensive Panda collection I now would rather select individual coins I find appealing from around the world, learn the intricacies of the market and develop an expertise. I'm looking forward to learning quite a bit on this forum and meeting existing members in the forums. Thanks for your time. Talk with you soon after I learn the ropes. ps I found out about this forum the Numistscker videos on YouTube. Very informative and interesting.
