    HI Panda Collectors,

    Please help me and my dealer determine a price for this coin

    1995 1/20oz Platinum Panda Raw (unsealed)

    What is the current value of this coin?

    I have not been able to locate many sales.

    I would take a stab at the grade being MS66-MS67 because of some slight discoloration.

    Just had a quick look in the pricapedia.
    Given the low grade I would think somewhere between $510 and $550
    Ask price in US is something like $1450, ask in china is $771, MS69 $979
    Three sales in china 12/12
    $560
    $411
    $373
    Hope this helps,
    Given you think it will grade MS66 I would look to get a better coin.

    thanks Chillidog!

    The main reason I am considering buying this coin is I think I can get it for $150-$250-

    I have a local network of dealers who call me when they get any Chinese coins. If they are silver or gold Pandas I know the market well from watching ebay, auctions, forums. As for the Platinum and Pallidium Pandas they are a bit tricky to find as many coins on the market so pricing is tough.

    I really appreciate your help.

    Iam just taking a stab at the grade since I know its not a MS69 or MS70 and I would rather be conservative if I am buying a coin.

    It very well could be MS67.

    Update on this coin...I bought the coin from The Dealer who holds and sells me all his Chinese coins.

    I paid $ 125-

    The coin looks flawless except for a tiny mark on the inside of the rim which is not a ding but more like a speck.

    This coin will probably Grade MS67 or MS68.

    IF I am looking at a value of $550- this might be my best buy for the year of 2014!

    I appreciate that Justfishing..it means more coming from you since i know you are a serious Panda enthusiast.

    I was curious about the conservation on a Platinum coin if it is worth it or not. I sent in Silver Pandas before and did not conserve and I later regret not conserving since Silver Tarnishes it brings out the luster if conserved.

    I wonder how NCS conserves coins. I bet they just sit there with a bucket of coin dip and dip the coin.

    I just don't understand another way to "conserve" a coin without damaging it unless they are dipping in solutions.

    anyone know?

    Also should I definitely slab this or sell it raw?

    thanks Jc88888888

    I would love to liquidate it to buy more Pandas but something in my gut is telling me to hold onto it.

    It is the only Platinum coin I own and the only Plat Panda of coarse so I keep that coin close to the vest.

    Yeah I made a mistake...2013 best buy.

    Well I did buy a few 1994 Silver 10 Yuan Pandas for $110/each

    let me know if that is a good buy Panda collectors?

    I only have one other 1994 and I sold it for $200 so I basically turned 1 1994 Panda into 2 94 Pandas.
