    Thanks for all the feedback. I was going to buy the brass issurance medal, but since it can't be graded, I ain't buying it...I may buy one for kicks, just because it is so beautiful. thanks for the heads up!!

    I am looking for similar large relief medals from private medal companies, but I cannot find anything on Ebay. Could someone please point me to an example?

    Haven't bought any new ones lol. Just sitting on the ones I still have from a few years ago. Any idea where I can get values for the medals? I paid $600 for the romance of 3 kingdoms medal. Wondering what it's worth now.

    Above 90mm is not easy to find. I like 70mm or larger.

    One of my favorite giant Chinese medal is the Snake Dance....all 120mm of it:

    The silver medal of this is very hard to come by.

    The mint told me that the mintage is 9. I contacted them to learn what the mintage and price of the silver version is.....very low mintage (9) and very expensive to purchase but the mint only makes them to order in batches of a minimum of at least 5 or more. S, I think the mintage will never go above 9 on the Snake Dance silver medal.

    I have the brass and copper set....low mintage too but of course less expensive than the pure silver.

    I pulled these pictures of the silver version from the internet:

    Got my Shanghai Mint 2015 White Guanyin brass coin today. I think this coin looks stunning, very happy with it. :) Also really love the colour of the brass.

    The colours in the photos are off, it has a nicer warmth in real life. I was too impatient to want until tomorrow to take nicer shots during the day time.

    3 in the series. You only get one. Good choice of choosing brass instead of silver.

    Silver got white spot for this series.
