    They already sell for the equivalent of US$42 in Germany (before the 7% tax on silver coins).

    I also thought 6 million were too many, but they are now at $50 on ebay, in mainland China and in Germany.

    I'm not going to go crazy with these 2012's I just ordered two MS70's to keep the registry set updated.

    One was an "Early Release" and one was a "First Release" which of course there really no difference to me but "technically" there is probably some explanation that I didn't even bother to research.

    If anyone is interested in graded 70's they are selling for $99 USD ... The graded 69's are $56

    I'm not advocating anyone run out and buy these, just passing on some info.

    Thanks, Yes Modern Coin Mart in FL does seem to have the least expensive prices as you listed above, followed closely my Mint Products.com @ $56.99 (MS69)...both good reliable dealers.

    Yes I have purchased from both of these dealers without issue. I am not sure but I believe Modern Coin Mart ships outside USA as well.

    Wow they charge $39 for fedex... seems like a waste to just buy 2 coins imo :/

    Anybody else want to buy some MS70 or MS69 2012 S10Y pandas from MCM? Let me know I'm gonna order Saturday...(gonna keep it below $800 though; so 8 coins total if MS70, more if 69).

    You'll be charged at cost of course, no handling fee if postage required = $6.50 :)

    Edit: (8am 23/March) ~$600 ordered now, get in quick can buy a few more.

    MCM prices:
    MS70 - $99 US
    MS69 - $56 US

    So far there's interest in 5 MS70s and 3 MS69s. I will take PMs until tonight midnight or $850 total whichever comes first.

    Target reached, will contact all of you after I have bought the coins (likely Sunday) via PM with details of cost etc.

    Will buy this tomorrow morning and then quote you guys the cost price over the weekend.

    Thanks to everyone who helped minimize the shipping expense! :)

    Pandas arrived today from MCM...

    So my experience of MCM is...

    Pros:
    Pretty quick delivery

    Cons:
    Paid ~$80 for Fedex and they used $38 USPS
    No communication at all apart from order confirmation (no shipping info)
    Declared full value on parcel, almost hit 1k

    Pics later :)

    I'd demand my $42 back.

    Hi Fishball

    I ordered 3 x MS69 Pandas, and a couple of other coins from MCM on Sunday, they're still to arrive. Like you no communication that my order had been dispatched. At least now I know that's normal

    I'll be a bit miffed if they send my order by USPS as well, as it'll means our Post Office (PO) will make the final delivery. Our wonderful Post Office charge a 8 handling fee to collect the import/VAT and handle parcels like the quarter back of an American Football team.

    If MSM do use USPS, they'll receive a not so nice thank you letter from me and a request for reimbursement of the PO handling fee.
