you are too much yennus !
Is this 8pm in Sydney ?
You guys are all nuts! Please keep off the medication until after 8pm Sydney time tonight.
Both coins are officially on the market with the highest bid at $177 each ($354 for the two coins by Comeaux).
The highest bidder at 8pm tonight can choose whichever coin he wants from the photo, however my recommendation is the coin on the left.
The underbidder will be offered the other coin.
Thanks for the bids and feedback
Yennus' you've convinced me, I'm swapping Pandas for Ase's, maples and other kooky coins... Also any Perth mint issued coins. They truly are the better play. I'm hoping to get whatever I can for my soon to be worthless Chinese coins, so please... be gentle.
The risk of Panda collapse is too great, as pointed out through these important messages of the guys here. I'd like to express my gratitude for bringing this to my attention. Thanks.
The sooner we all realize this the better off we'll be.
25 Grizzlies .......What's a Vault protectors?
Please don't take your medication until after 8pm tonight.
You may come to your senses before putting in a crazy bid for these Pandas.
Just got in a private bid for both coins.
The collector doesn't want the sheet cut so he has placed a bid of $501 for the two coins ($251 and $250).
Thanks very much guys.
$275 each ($550 for both)
It's kind of tough to go up against private bids ... why not they just post up here on the forum what they want to bid?
Not sure why this particular member (he's a regular poster here) wants to go private, however I am happy to take bids from anyone.
Thanks for your high bids for this lump of brass
560 for both
Spoken like a true bullion dealer.
I was going to bid on your coins but not now.
I don't appreciate your tone, this isn't a game and my purchasing is (usually!) carefully considered.
Comeaux will better almost any bid, I agree with him that bidding should be public only, that's been the issue with a few auctions here.
It's a difficult format to run auctions at the best of times, transparency and respect for others bidding should be a condition.
Good luck to you and your friend.
this is why i like SS
yea 25grizzlies as soon as I can get used to the 17 hour time difference !!!
Alot of things happen under the cover of darkness while I'm sleeping !!!
I was sleeping when I lost out on that beautiful 2003 gold panda
comeaux you shouldn't sacrifice your sleep and just let me with both at 560 ^_____^
Your health is more important!!!!!!
yea I know my wife thinks I'm crazy !!!
she just doesn't understand
i can't understand too honestly. why your guys pay this much attention on chinese field? i generaly collecting world coins but never concentrate on chinese field, I'd like use my pocket to fill my aussie coins collection rather than purchase asian coins. 1930 penny worth 300 bucks ten years ago now they worth 13k to 15k,your guys overloading too much in chinese field i think
You have to chill out a bit 25 Grizzlies.
This is my attempt at humour not insults.
I am a lunar coin collector and I certainly wouldn't take offence at another member if they try to inject a bit of humor in a sales tread.
I have paid over the top for some special lunar coins and if someone told me I forgot to take my meds, I would grin and laugh with him not assume everything posted was an insult.
I didn't have a clue what these coins are worth yesterday however I am now being pleasantly surprised.
Btw I still don't know what a vault protector is
Because the Chinese numismatic market is underdeveloped and immature due to distorted economy of China and the ban on precious metal ownership pre-2003. There are not many collectors yet and when there are, prices will skyrocket.
Case in point, recently Bank of China released commemorative paper $100 notes for $200 each. As soon as the people who bought it walked out the door they were selling them for $700-1500 and probably higher now.
That's what happens when the Chinese get a wind of anything worth buying, prices go exponential.
I'm sure that the 1930 penny might've been a nice investment in hindsight but there are still many coins from that time period which weren't stellar performers.
ps. Vault protector is the circular coin with the square hole, namely from 1990 and 1998. The older actual coinage which is circular and has a square hole from the Qing dynasty or earlier may have a different name.
pps. There is NOTHING TO SEE HERE IN THIS THREAD. PLEASE GO TO SLEEP COMEAUX LET ME WIN THANKS.
There are 100's of MMC that are only 20 to 30 years old which sold for very cheap when initially released that are world $1000's now.
sorry to "derail" your sales thread aurora ... back to bidding !!!
at least I'm one of the bidders
