    Hi folks,

    In case if you were wondering if Chinese have any limits for sizes (or better weight) of their medals. They don't! ;) I don't own this medal (not possible even in dreams I guess :) ). Topic title is taken from Google translate, so it might be wrong.

    Size: 180mm.
    Weight: 5000+g (it's not a typo).
    Mintage number: 9.
    Purity: 0.999
    Price: roughly around 10.3k$.

    Imagine this slabbed. You would need a special room to store it.:p

    Or with milk spots. It would look like it's snowing.:p

    However they should make XXL Chinese oversize holder.;)

    $10K is chump change for many ppl, but the fact this isn't yet unavailable tells me that these many ppl are infact stupid, and $10K won't be chump change for them much longer.

    our world is in fact run by stupid, arrogant psychopaths at this moment.. but at some point the imaginary money will run out even for them

    I think if Perth Mint made this medal, would be already sold out. :)


    Talking about slabbing and big medals. NGC has also mega holder, for stuff up to 180mm and 29mm in thickness. I guess this medal is thicker.

    the 200 mm medal cost 1800 and cost another 180 to ship. It is too rich for my blood so I will not buy it.

    Might consider the 80 mm small one.
