    It's official ( or I say it's so anyway )
    PANDA'S ARE DEAD
    Just tried to move some 2013 Panda's nobody wants them :lol:
    Two dealers knocked them back
    I've noticed the sales of them here are slow & prices have been low
    Maybe the stockhorse is taking over ;)

    Well that might have something to do with it .
    One dealer mentioned the other day , last year everybody was asking for them
    Now nobody wants the suckers

    Well it depends on the price you are trying to move them at Spanner

    Current mintage and still available - currently $33 at GS website

    Talking about silver & Panda's in general

    All I'm saying

    I don't like them , they were to hard to sell when I had some
    Only the sprukers of them tend to be able to sell them :rolleyes:

    I'm spruking
    " BUY LOCAL PRODUCTS "
    Local dealers don't like & would never pay any kind of premium for them .
    And for me it's all about
    How easy it is to sell ;)

    The question is
    " ARE THEY SELLING " & at what price ;)
    They know about those Panda's & show no interest ;)

    That may be true of 2013 pandas but doesn't necessarily translate for all pandas

    If you were trying to sell earlier years you might get a different story

    I still haven't done my COA for the Stockhorse :rolleyes:
    And they are "WAY"more valuable ;)

    Earlier years have lost their appeal also. Only a few go searching these days. Of course they didn't come with Spanners special COA :)
    I am still selling Gold Pandas when they are reasonably priced.

    IMHO, the Panda market has been 'swamped' with too many high quality fakes... for someone not 'au fait' with the market, they can appear to be a bit of a minefield.

    That's one of the main reasons I don't like them
    The Melbourne dealers don't like them
    I even know a Chines coin dealer who doesn't buy them
    Fake gold coins are easier to pick - well the cast ones anyway
