    The one in the photo is brass..

    Comes in 50mm & 90mm.


    There's also a 2-oz silver (probably 40mm)..

    Ag isn't cheap. And at least per some photos, the silver one looks a bit "washed out," which IMO hurts the aesthetics.


    I think the brass looks nicer for this one.. :cool:



    P.S. Before anybody asks: Check eBay. I believe one exclusive dealer who ships worldwide (who also sells direct via PayPal invoice ;) ).

    This series is commissioning by the original classical garden medal group. They have 3 series : classical garden, panda expo and this one.

    The 3rd panda expo never execute and physically happen unlike the 1st and 2nd expo. 3rd panda expo design almost the same like the Macao expo medal even both were designed by same designer. The 4th expo might release or NO than this series will die off. a short life span of a expo panda series which has no physical event and terminate less than 3 years.

    BTW who keen on the mammoth the first of the series in NGC contact me which I will offload it at costs plus 10 SGD margin

    Just to inform u that the designer of the 3rd prizes in world medal competition in 2015 is the same designer of the mammoth and Lizard if I am not wrong.

    The medal is much bigger (round up 150mm) than the mammoth and Lizard 90 mm and price of 3 is at USD 1200 with shipping. the weight is around 800 gram per pc:p

    There sell in set except Long neck dragon has one single pc available at USD420.

    Estimate will be ready and ship in July

    The first prize winner is the monkey lunar Poland Mint designer Ana. Mintage 100 only
