    A lot of recent messages about the BIG3... so I figured I would display what they look like here:

    2000 Mirror Panda 1oz Silver (BU Estimate: <15,000) - Shanghai Mint
    [imgz=http://forums.silverstackers.com/uploads/675_img_3284.jpeg][​IMG][/imgz][imgz=http://forums.silverstackers.com/uploads/675_img_3286.jpeg][​IMG][/imgz]
    Usually these sell for $1500 or more (OMP).

    1999 Large Date Serif Panda 1oz Silver (BU Estimate: <7000) - Shenyang Mint

    1995 Micro Date Small Twig Panda 1oz Silver (BU Estimate: <4000) - Shenzen Guobao Mint

    What to look out for when purchasing the BIG3...
    1. Packaging... they should only come in the packaging shown here. I haven't seen any fakes come in the correct OMP packaging yet.
    2. Condition... make sure coins don't exhibit the Black Spot/s of Death. If these coins are still in OMP, they should be in reasonably good condition.

    I have a few 1995 MD ST still available through the group buy at the moment though :) ... only $1250each... in impeccable condition.

    Also, why are these known as the big 3? There are much rarer Panda's in both silver and gold.

    The 3 rarest bullion 1oz silver Pandas.

    Hence, big 3. I think.
