Chinese Silver Pandas

Recommended Posts

I been collecting the Chinese silver panda since this year and I'm loving them. Do you all consider them as bullion coins or collector coins i.e. modern numismatics? 

 

P.S. I don't believe in China's politics, just love the coins.

Correct me if I'm wrong the 3 key dates for Chinese silver panda are:

i) 1995 Small Date, Small Twig 
ii) 1999 Large Date, Serif 1
iii) 2000 Mirrored Ring

Yep, premium appreciation has been zero % since they went to 30g coins and increased the mintage.  They're just an expensive govt BU coin now.

There are far too many competing series now... makes is more difficult for any series to mark itself out for collectable potential

Thank you for letting me know about this. I'm on the numismatics side of the collecting, not the bullion. I don't need five tubes of random silver pandas for "wealth preservation", I want them because I like the way the look, those varieties you mentioned and the fact that they have pandas on the coin. At the end of the day, I'm trying to complete them by date. Since the slabbed ones aren't that much more than the ones in just the capsules it is worth that extra protection (and bragging right). For now, I'll just stick to the 2018 and 2019 ones I have now and wait for the price of the earlier slabbed ones to go down. Thank you @Agpanda and I pray you find a job that will showcase your skills.

I big thanks to everyone one here for answering my question. I wasn't expecting answers within a minute of me posting this question.

Backtracking a set especially something like the pandas, is time consuming and it will cost a small fortune imho. I tried and gave up after months of checking the prices on ebay for both raw and slabbed. I backtracked to 2014 and then gave up. But you might be better equipped financially to do this so good luck and have fun.

If you enjoy collecting a certain coin and not just stacking for weight then its not to to much to pay

I love the panda coins, Ive backtracked to 2001 and its bloody expensive.  Ive decided to leave it here as the two coins the same 2001/2 are a good staring point.  I cant justify paying the premiums for previous dates.
