    Hi there welcome to the panda hunt.
    I would work backward from where you are ie 2009,2008,2007ect
    The expensive years are 2000,2003
    I would wait till you knew more before trying to get large and small dates,unless they are a good price and you know what to look for. Get the book from Pandacollector he is a member of Silver stackers.
    There are two versions of this coin (2000) Frosted and Mirror,all to do with the outside ring on the temple side.. Frosted are the cheap kind at about $500usd mirror can be up to $2000 usd.
    Good luck hunting

    1996 long and short date uss 207 with shipping (i think is good price)
    1997 long and short date uss 225 with shipping (i too think is good price)

    2009 150
    1989 155

    I think 1996 and 1997 are more rarity then 2009?
    Its ok?

    I was going to suggest he get his book as I did from Maggie but noticed "Im from argentina"
    But all Australian panda hunters should.

    The Panda book by Peter Anthony is essential, and is definitely worth getting.

    Peter's Panda Pricepedia is also fantastic, and is highly recommended.

    If you're starting out, I would recommend going for 2011s, 2010s and 2009s. This is a fairly straight forward, affordable and easy collection to assemble, and I can imagine the prices for a complete set should be heading upwards as stocks of 2009s reach very low levels.

    Older coins are rarer, but you pay more for them on average, depends how much money you have.

    Cool! I'll wait for that for sure and get it as well haha.

    Can't wait for the pricepedia to show up in my email :D

    It'll be one of those rare times when I actually enjoy reading email.
