    Reverse pattern of the silver ones and obverse of the 5oz look a bit, mh, dirty compared to the finish on the 1oz. Couldn`t they affor a better photographer or is their quality rapidly declining (note: positive effect - no more white spots)?

    Not sure of their release prices at this stage, but probably around 600RMB for the 1oz Silver Coin.
