Flora is an excellent source of information.
Welcome to Stackers, add an introduction
Just got a call from NGC---they will not grade the 30th anniversary panda medals
Did they say why?
Not a recognized mint apparently. I knew when the coa said --xxxxx. Souvenir co that I might have a problem. Kind of a piss off, but oh well
You knew that it didn't come from an authorized mint when you bought it?
Didn't matter-would have bought it anyway
I am taking a bit more notice of this thread since I was lucky enough to score this beauty from ozcopper's barter listing.
Now that I have had a chance to hold it in my hand and feel the weight and depth of this medal ,I am doubly pleased.
Hope I don't get too addicted to them ,though
Edit : looks like the link is dead .. sorry
New Panda Medal to be released soon. I like the design but not the shape.
I thought someone here said they had already graded some of these , does anyone remember that post?
Anyway cool medal , i would only like to have it graded and slabbed for preservation and a nice holder to look at them as these medals and ones like them are very cool to look at!
Sitting dragon with pearl--90 mm came back as 2 --68s
Can you post some pics when you get them back?
Have trouble re-sizing the pics---I can send an email to anyone who wants a look
I have just received my 1990 5 oz silver Eight Immortals Medal.
I love this medal and photos do not give this medal enough justice.
This is now the crown jewel of my small Chinese Coin and Medal Collection.
I have posted some pictures.
Stunning---Im having a hard time not mounting any medals in frames to enjoy---they seem more like art!
wow!!!!! works of art
Sweet Medals!! Thanks for sharing those!!
Very nice 5 oz medal.
Price for the God of Wealth seem to be recovering. The last PF 69 UC jsut sold for US$1111.90 on auction.
Boybluejay actually sold one for US$900 quite recently.
For those interested. This new panda medal is cast by the Shanghai Mint therefore should be eligible for NGC grading.
Wow!!! Gilt Brass Kaiyuan Pagoda Medal in PF 69 sells for $203.36. IMHO a very strong price for only one medal.
