    I bought that 1989 expo panda tamo mentions lol... it actually sold twice at $550 I believe, me and another guy bought one each!

    The reason I bought it was because tamo/Austacker made it sound so enticing and it's price level was screaming "bargain" to me.

    Also the flood of them on the market is from mostly one seller, I believe once they're cleaned out they will be back to the usual scarce levels.

    I actually offered $515 before but he countered with a $550, I couldn't be bothered stuffing around for an odd $20-30 so took his offer.

    Was a good price ($588 US shipped), especially with the strong AUD (~1.06 at time of purchase).

    He also mentions the 1998LD 1oz BU Panda. Something I know fishball has mentioned a few times as very undervalued. There is a pretty hot auction for a MS69 on eBay at the moment that looks to eclipse the previous top sale price.

    Are you talking about this?

    I am watching that auction, anything under $450 feels like a good buy to me so might put in a last minute sneaky bid.

    As for me mentioning it being undervalued, I wish I could claim credit for that but it was 25Grizzlies who first alerted me to it back when we first met in Sydney.

    Hey fish,

    I was the $525 guy! :D Exhange rate could have been better though. to $ = fail .. well compared to the 1 = $2 days lol

    The reason i bought it was because i love the design and like you i believe there is defo upside potential.

    Chances are the other guy who bought for $550 is on here as well. Lots of astute buyers on here!

    My reasoning for the upside potential is:

    Low mintage
    Great design
    Currently market flooded thus reflecting low prices (ie. Good buy)

    Although I bought it mostly for the second reason, the design is awesome.

    Well, thanks to you both, I investigated them shortly after you mentioned them and picked up an OMP sheet. Hopefully we all make a solid return. It is interesting how word travels and generates hype.

    FB you're right
    I was the "other guy" :p ,
    after reading so many positive review about this coin, I decided to buy one too
    I offered $525 but the seller counter offered for $550, and it was sold before I accepted it,
    Bought it for $550 when the seller relisted the item.

    nothing can go wrong with $550, 4000 mintage Panda!
    will post pic hopefully next week ;)

    And the Pandamonium is likely to get much hotter in the coming days, months and years... I'm going to want a much bigger budget for these Pandas.

    I made a offer of $520 USD, he replied with $550 USD.

    Ended up costing $513 AUD plus postage. from the same seller.

    That was actually bought by another stacker here, he only paid $625 for it, not $700.
