    Hello Everyone,

    Well, after a long wait, we are finally going to open our website chinesemedals.com I say 'we', because Andy and I have made it a labor of love. It is not perfect. I'm sure it will evolve. I know it will. :D We are new to this. We love this hobby called collecting, so we thought, why not fill a need by offering medals from China, and around the world, QUICKLY. :p

    We'll also carry coins from the Perth Mint, and other mints, HOWEVER, it will be primarily focused on Chinese Medals. We are involved with some of the series from China, such as the Panda Lunar Series, Nanjing Panda Series, World Heritage Series, and there will be other series coming out down the road, which we are very excited about. Our first passion is collecting, and from there we want to share with you what we are storing in our treasure box.

    Andy and I are looking forward to working together as partners. We felt this was a good strategy because from a logistical shipping perspective, I can cover N.A., and he can cover Europe and Asia and other international locations. We will effectively have 2 warehouses. Our goal is to get product in your hands quickly, at reasonable prices. Some will be priced better than others when compared to eBay. However, you can always email us with questions and thoughts too.

    We will carry a lot of different medals (some coins) from China. If there is something you want, but it's not on our website, feel free to ask, and we will hunt it down for you. We have some connections in China who can help us. Also, our goal is to carry as many graded medals as possible.

    We look forward to serving you, answering questions, and providing quality products, QUICKLY! Now there may be occasions, where we don't have inventory here in the U.S., and it will need to come from Singapore or China, and shipping fees may apply. Also, from U.S. to overseas, shipping fee will apply (we don't ship to all countries, unfortunately). In that case, it will obviously take little longer to get product in your hands. But in most cases, U.S. customers can count on 3-4 days, from order to your hands.

    Last, we will have a few low priced items on the website tomorrow morning (9AM EST). One example is a PF69 Panda Goat for $219.00. We know those are going for well over 350.00.

    Have a great day. And thanks for all the support (you know who you are!!). Andy & Bob.

    Thanks, Andrew & b!

    Definitely helping to meet market demand with all this. Much needed & long overdue, IMO.


    I've worked with / tried to work with a few sellers located in China, and it wasn't always easy for various reasons.


    I've also dealt with both Andrew & b individually in the past, and they certainly put in a lot of time & effort to make things happen.


    Looking forward to doing more business with them! :D

    Congrats Bob and Andy! I also hope this site gains momentum and is a success in the upcoming months and years. The domain name is killer...how you got so lucky I will never know.

    I for one will probably shop with you because on a number of occasions I have had delivery problems with coins shipped from overseas. The fact that you are shipping from the U.S. is a huge benefit and relief to me as shipping costs are reduced, shipping times are reduced, package tracking actually becomes more than crossing my fingers with a wish and a prayer as it is with foreign shipping, and so on and so forth.

    It will be a plus for me any way I look at it to shop with you for many of my collector coins / medals pursuits.

    Hi Mmissing Thank's for the support.

    Cheers

    There is no automatic calculation at this moment due to various items in different location.

    To be simple, the policy did state you can buy it but not pay. Send an email and check the shipping fee which reply within 24 hours.

    Small items except the world heritage, mammoth and 5 oz silver panda shipping is around usd 18 for 2 oz slab or coin. Additional pieces just add 12. Hope this information is helpful.

    If item in usa and ship usa except big items shipping is free of charge.!

    Hello everyone. Thanks for the positive feedback. Please do keep in mind this is a work in progress for us. :). If you have any questions do not hesitate to PM us or email is. We need to figure out the shiping piece. If the product is here in the U.S. And you are ordering in the U.S., shipping is free. :)) I think Andy is working out terms on website. international shipping fees will apply. Thanks for your patience as we figure this out.
