    Goldfish coins now have known official varieties graded by NGC, but there is lot of confusion about 1984 pagoda sets - about their versions (silver, silver plated, gold gilt etc). I am interested to know if anyone here is looking to obtain these, and what they think. Also if anyone owns these please share your pictures, opinion etc. Anyhing and everything help!

    Thanks! :)

    Pagodas do not interest me at all.

    Still feeling wary here about his stuff haha. I guess no problems if you're sending to NGC though.

    These are medals by the way, not coins :)

    medals they are................well I hope I am ok....the guy has strong feedback ,so I guess I take a shot ,he got a lot of bad press on another board ,he had those silver plated fish on e bay and everyone on the board was hollering thief ! As soon as NGC came out and legitimized them ,it got awful quite over there:) we shall see.........................

    There has been a lot of debate on the other forum regarding the authencity of Luckmoneyro's set of $198.00 pagodas on ebay.

    Looks like someone else rolled the dice with me. He has already sold 2 sets.
    I will send all the medals to NCS/NGC and see what becomes of them.


    Wow he is also selling lots of goldfish sets.

    A few months ago. I email him to buy the goldfish medals for 80. But after it i read in ccf they are fake.
    And dont buy it.
    Now the set is legit amd the price is 200

    The 80 ones are silver plated, which he sells for 95, and the gold plated ones are 200. it is different.
