    The 1987 Gold Set is one of those Panda years that sell for more in China than almost anywhere else. It is also considered on of the more uncommon Pandas years. With population estimates for complete sets being less than 21,000. This is also one of the few Pandas that have mint marks. This set has the "S" mint mark indicating the Shanghai Mint, while others may have the "Y" mark, indicating ShenYang Mint.

    Q> What looks good with gold?
    A> Silver of course :)

    Q> What's rarer than the above set?
    A> The commemorative 1987 6th International Coin Exposition Hong Kong Medal! With only 2000 minted, this medal compliments the above set well :)

    I thought I would share some clearer pics of the 5oz Hong Kong Panda bear... Some toning around the edges, but hopefully nothing that NCS can't fix. Stunning mirror finishes... but my favorite part is that of the city buildings.
