    Hey there, I have started this post for PANDA MEDAL PHOTO. Hope the panda lover will share their lovely panda medal at this thread.

    You can post panda coins and others in another few thread which I will initial later. This is for MEDAL NOT Panda COIN. :p

    The first medal I post is 2015 FUN Show Panda 1 o silver MEDAL. This medal is mainly for celebrating 60th anniversary of Fun show at Florida USA. This medal consists of 1 oz silver, 5 oz silver and 5 oz Gold.



    Generally, Medals in China are commissioning by private person or/investor and mints by one of 4 china official mints.

    This medal is commissioning by China Great Wall Coins Investment Limited which PANDA AMERICA is involving heavily. This is the first reverse proof panda. It come with nice wooden box and Certificate Of Authenticity (CAO)


    Casting : Shenzhen Guobao Mints
    Material : .999 silver
    Mintage : 6,000 planned mintage

    Hi trozau

    Long time not change chat with you.

    I will start another panda coin thread soon. Shall it be china psnda only or world panda? Be general or specific?

    I buy small platinum psnda recently which is with bob now.

    I like the 87 and 89 much.

    The more general you go, the more participation. Personally, I always relate pandas to China. Too many panda issues (different sizes, metals) to dabble in all of them so I made a choice to stick to my preferred (1 troz) size and my preferred (Au) metal (Platinum is a far second choice and even a far third is Palladium (although I do not own any of the 1 troz palladium panda).

    What would the weights and estimated value of such medals.

    The cost of the medals to me is important for new releases to help decided whether to look into buying some?

    90 mm, weight around 490 gram.

    The price remain stable since issue in 2012 till now and not a new release. Tincat is selling cooper, brass and silver. This medal not likely to give a big profit if intention is investment or selling in short term.

    Now, I am posting the official mints medal By China Gold Coin Inc. strike by Shanghai mints. China Gold Coin Inc. is the Gold and Silver panda issuer. They appoint shanghai and Shenzhen mints to produce those yearly silver and gold bullion coins.

    I have the brass version which mintage is 3,000. By eye, this medal is much bigger than the previous 30th anniv panda medal post by me. I do not weight and measure it.

    I love it much since it show up most of my favourable panda like the 1986 Micheal Jordan NBA panda, 1986 cute water drinking panda and the 2001 big fat panda with bamboo background.

    This medal high relief is more superior than the private mints as my personal view.

    The observe despicts the pandas from the nature walking upward to the panda coins. It script the word in mandarin of "the 30th anniversary of the issuance of Chinese Panda Gold coin."

    The reverse despicts the happy panda playing, walking and get together within the word of "30". It scripts the word in English of the "the 30th anniversary of the issuance of Chinese Panda Gold coin."

    Let me show you the disputed panda medal which discussed a lot in other forums: Panda expo 3.

    It is almost identical design with Macao panda expo medal. The differences is the background and additional baby panda leg. The macoa panda expo and panda expo 3 is same designer who is 1983 panda coin designer. The signature cloud on the great wall have gone.

    The panda expo 1 has white spot issue as like the Macao panda expo. Many shanghai mints silver medals have white spot as I notice (I.e panda expo 1, Macao panda expo, long corridor, Yuan Ming Yuan and summer resort gate classical garden series).

    Panda expo 1 and 2 price has dropped back to release price after hype. This time round they come out with platinum and silver reverse proof version.

    Only one seller is selling in ebay because other sellers not intention to sell at all. Price is high. Hope it will not like panda expo 1 and 2 down later.

    Lol. I pay 150 for one pair excluding shipping. I get at release price at china. I do not carry and sell it because similar design with Macau expo medal. However I bought one pair to continue my collection. No point to buy it if you feel it is over priced. There are always a good deal.

    Hi Buddy,

    I bit lazy recently for video and photo. Here the new one. 2009 PANDA MEDAL BY CHEN JIAN. He designs 2009 panda coin if I am not wrong. He is one of the master class coin and medal designer in China.

    This is his hand painted medal with signature on coa. The medal is mints by non-official mints. However, this private mints is very reputable. The Xi shi with Pearl medals were minted by them.

    Liberty coins has these on sale at the moment

    and I could not resist, not sure if the price is ok, but this medal looks good in live.:cool:

    And I think it has a certain "cute factor" of a giant panda pictured with a cub. Though the little has a "funny" head on this piece.
