    Just bought me one! Sweet. Jesus. That is a purty medal. And 3 oz. I have no idea what the heck it means, LOL, but I will say, that I personally love the detail. Would buy 13 of these like I did the 2013 Panda Expo medal. I bought my 13 Pandas, and now this medal from [email protected] I contacted him directly, and he charged me 200.00. You can't go wrong with him. He has a great rating on eBay, and has relatively fast shipping. Let him know [email protected] sent him your way, this way when we order in the future, we leverage our 'group' to get a deal. :) just a thought. Matters not to me either way, I get nothing from this guy...zippo. Just a nice medal at a reasonable price...I hope. LOL.

    By the way thanks for sharing!! I would never have found this medal if not for this forum...or the Panda Expo one for that matter. So thank you, and great pics too. Keep up the great work of informing us.

    Thanks Honson and Barsenhault for flagging this.- Add another one to the list of purchases

    I had been looking to purchase one of these for a while, but was a bit wary of the potential for counterfeit via an unknown source.

    Thus appreciate your help Barsenhault and have mentioned you in dispatchs to the seller.

    The high relief and detailing reminds me of the annual Royal Mint Medals that were produced for only about three or four years and around 2010. The three coins that I know about were commisioned to show the craft of coin making and were very detailed; and so much more so than the detailing and depth on the normal RM medals,

    Looking forward to this arriving

    Hello there, not yet, BUT, I ordered all these from him.http://youtu.be/HAI2OI5s1kQ ...in my humble opinion, he's trustworthy. He has them for sale on eBay for 220, but wouldn't surprise me if he starts increasing the price.

    Here is his ebay listing. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Shenyang-Mi...489?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item338d63f1b1 Good luck. Again, I get nothing from him to tout his medals. I simply share, because it would suck to get a fake from China...he's been good to me, and quite a few others who buy medals and coins from China.
