What I am collecting / Investing in.

  1. For a good portion of the summer I stopped buying any coins, gold or silver, proof or bullion, because I felt a bit overwhelmed by all the series that are available. There's the Chinese Panda series, the Chinese Lunar series, the Britannia Series (my personal favorite, but not much love from a lot of collectors nowadays), the Great Britain Lunar series, the Perth Lunar series, the Canadian Lunar series, the Rwandan Lunar series (these are quite lovely, but I didn't set aside cash for them or buy any 😥), the Canada Predator series, the Kangaroos, the Kookaburras, the Saltwater Crocodiles, the Birds of Paradise, the Emus, and the Sharks. The Queen's Beasts, the Lion Dollars, and the Bisons. Not to mention the Ukrainian Archangels, the Isle of Man Nobles, the Niue hawksbills, superheroes, and star wars coins. Colorized coins, incuse coins, concave coins, egg shaped coins, coins that are square, coins that have scalloped edges, and privy marks on everything! Just tossing a discussion out to the Forum in general. Does anyone else feel overwhelmed by all of these? Are there forum members that have culled down their collections and eliminated collecting certain series? If so, which series are you avoiding or stopping?
  2. Does anyone know when the 2019 silver and gold pandas are released? A few websites have some gold denominations listed but I can't find anything on exactly when they'll be available. When have previous years come out? Curious about this year's design, too.
  3. I purchased a pcgs ms69 Chinese Panda off ebay and picked it up yesterday. The photo on the site was a stock photo (pcgs serial number does not match) but nothing in the description says there will be red spots on it! Many are small but one, below the end of the branch, is pretty big. I have messaged the seller (not opened a case) and they have asked for photos then said "please let us know if you wish to return it for a refund". No apology. I will be candid enough to tell you I sent an offer (before knowing the actual condition) of £39.00 delivered and this was accepted (£45 was the original price). A search on eBay suggests the seller will have to refund my costs to return if not as described, and I would argue that's the case here. Do you agree? I quite like the coin but I paid over pure bullion prices but seemingly a bit less than other graded older pandas (based on a quick search of actual ebay sold prices). Do you reckon I should keep it? Raise a case?
  4. Good Evening all, My partner is visiting China later in the year and I would love some silver pandas as holiday presents ?. Does anyone have experience of flying back with silver bullion from the Chinese mainland? Are there limits on what you can bring, taxes etc? Cheers, Jeffers

    Chinese Coin set I do not know if the link above works but it is for lot 382 at Clarks Auctions at Semley on Saturday. The coins look like Pandas but do not have the 10 yuan denomination and I wondered what they were. There is a certificate but I do not read Chinese. I wondered if they were meant to be a commemorative set of some sort but some of the Temples look a bit dubious for an official medal set. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks

  8. Hi all, I have made a webpage about silver pandas Take a look and if you find something wrong, just let me know This is ment to be a little help for those thinkin about collecting pandas.
  9. 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
  10. This afternoon I found a bag of sealed (well two aren't) quarter ounce gold pandas in the strongroom. If you're on the wishlist we'll be contacting you once we've had new photos and priced them up. We use the wish list so that if you are on it, we will offer the coin to you before we pop it on the website. If anyone wants to be added please let me know email address, name and what you're looking for - by DM. We don't have everything but you'd be amazed what we uncover - we're using a new warehousing system which makes it easier for us to let you know if an item is in stock but we've got one more big safe to catalogue so you never know what we'll find.

  12. This video seems to show it doing a half decent job by simply using a storm-lighter on affected areas. Anyone who wishes to have a dabble with affected coins, feel free to report back here their success or failures with using this technique

LUNAR PANDA SERIES 2015 Shenyang Mints has jointly worked with private sponsors to commission a new “Panda Lunar” medal series. The first panda lunar year is “Yi Wei Year of the Goat 乙未羊年三羊开泰” Why did the medal sponsors commence the first lunar year of the Panda Lunar from “GOAT” NOT another lunar year? Rat, Cow, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig即子(鼠)、丑(牛)、寅(虎)、卯(兔)、辰(龙)、巳(蛇)、午(马)、未(羊)、申(猴)、酉(鸡)、戌(狗)、亥(猪)are the 12 Chinese Lunar ZODIAC sequence. Initially, the intention to commence the first medal from horse due to the limitation of time in designing and planning which will affect the quality of the medal and horse is ranked as number 7 of 12 Lunar which 7 in mandarin means “fail” and “going”in Chinese culture so all decide to delay and wait for one year and commence the first medal on Goat year. In additional of the above reason, Goat is ranked number “8”of the 12 lunar which means lucky and prosperous. The kindness story of Goat is another reason for us to pick the goat as first year of the Lunar for this series. Grain is not in existence on the earth during the ancient prehistoric times. A Kind hearted Goat from heaven visit the earth and discover the starving human with pale face and thin body. He secretly return to the heaven and steal the grain to plant it on earth. The master of heaven Jade emperor is very angry and executed the goat and eaten his meat. The next years, the goat execution place has grown grass and little lamb. Jade emperor decides to select 12 animals as human 12 lunar zodiac as assigned as god. Human unanimously elected Goat as one of the Lunar Zodiac due to his kindness to them. Jade emperor still anger on the grain stolen case but no choice to fulfil the human demand. Daddy, mommy and kid are selected instead of one goat in the medal is to show the joyful of happy family too. Why panda? Panda is the endanger animal which is the national treasure of China and one of the oldest animal in biological science. China government recognizes Panda as a symbol of friendship with foreign countries in diplomatic occasions. Thus, panda is chosen. Why Great wall of China? The Great Wall of China is one of the ten wonders of the world. Great Wall start building from Spring and Autumn war Dynasty till Ming Dynasty which across two thousand years with total length of 21,196.18 km. World Heritage Committee comments that “The Great Wall of China” as the world's longest military installations with high value in the arts and culture and importance in the history and strategy. LUNAR GOAT PANDA Panda Goat is the first medal of the series which issued in 2015 with 3 versions 2 oz .999 silver, 2 oz .999 silver antique and 50 gram .999 gold with mintage of 299, 99 and 19 respectively. Panda Lunar Goat - Antique Finish Mintage 99 LUNAR MONKEY PANDA The golden snub-nosed monkey an endanger animal is selected for this LUNAR PANDA SERIES : Monkey 金丝猴 Golden snub-nosed monkey is an Old World monkey in the Colobinae subfamily. It is endemic to a small area in temperate, mountainous forests of central and Southwest China at elevations of 1,500-3,400 m above sea level. The Chinese name is Sichuan golden hair monkey (川金丝猴). Snow occurs frequently within its range and it can withstand colder average temperatures than any other non-human primates. There are only 4 species of Golden Monkey that exist in the world, including Golden Golden Monkey, Yunnan Golden Monkey, Guizhou Golden Monkey and Tonkin Golden Monkey. The first three species inhabit China so we can say Golden monkey is peculiar to China and under the State's first-class protection. Besides China, there are some specimens of golden monkeys in the museums of few countries such as UK and France in the world. Golden Monkey, which is as precious as the Giant Panda in China, is also China's "national treasure". The Golden Monkey, having bright-colored fur, special appearance, graceful movement and gentle nature, is deeply loved by people. The Golden Monkey's body length is about 70 cm (2.3 ft) and the length of its tail is the same as that of its body or even longer. This monkey has flat nose with nostrils facing forward, full lips and no cheek pouch. The beautiful Golden monkey has cyan and polish long fur on its back and blackish-grey fur on shoulders, upper arms, back, crown and tail. The side of the crown, nape, abdomen, inner arms and thighs are covered with soft brown fur. The Golden monkey is named after the stump nose with forward-facing nostrils, and it is also called 'non nose bridged' because of its seriously degenerated nose. The golden snub-nosed monkey is endangered due to habitat loss. This primate is found in a number of protected areas, including Baihe Nature Reserve, Foping National Nature Reserve, Shennongjia National Geopark and Wanglang National Nature Reserve. The San Francisco Zoo kept this species during 1985, and the San Diego zoo kept the species before the 1980s. Outside China only Japan and South Korea keep the golden-snub nosed monkeys.

  18. I'm looking to buy a 1oz silver 2014 coin for sentimental reasons. I've decided it'll probably be a panda or Brit and I'd like it slabbed and rated 69/70, preferably proof, but maybe bullion. Can someone with a bit more knowledge give me a steer on what I'm looking at paying on these variables? I'd like the proofs but reality may mean it'll be bullion. eBay has a MS70 2014 panda (152035985936) on at £40 with two days to go.
