    Actually I'm not sure if its 2012. The ebay listing says 2012 but the NGC label doesn't say so.

    I bet they are a fortune! Why do they even mint these ?, is it just a special order type thing from an elite society with deep pockets or?
    This stuff is fascinating..

    My friend in China seems concerned that this medal won't be accepted in China?

    Sorry Catseye. The information is not correct.

    Refer http://www.chngc.net/Main/D_TEXT/GGJJ.aspx

    Kai Yuan and GuoBao Mint are both fully owned by China Gold Coin Inc.

    I am not sure Kang Yin Ge is owned by China Gold Coin Inc. Interesting if it is.

    I don't know why the China dealers are not interested in this set. But medal being medal, perhaps that is the reason.

    Thank you low, I think you are right.
    NGC does certify this medal so I don't understand the Shanghai dealers being afraid of it. Maybe this is a good thing for us? ;)

    Anyone know the release price of the Kai Yuan 5 oz Grotto Art Silver Medals?
    Unfortunately i don't read Chinese and i can't find the price anywhere using Google Chrome.

    How did you find this!? I have used many different search words, China 5oz was the best. It must have been opportunistic or in a favourite sellers inventory?! Please pm me seller?
