    I was reading some where about how people are losing money on these sets. Wondering about what was the issue price? What is market value of these sets right now raw /ungraded? I actually like these sets and am considering buying them.

    Thanks,
    Ben

    I have all 3 complete set ,s........considering there is 2 1/3 troy oz gold coins and 4 1oz silver the sets have metal value,pretty low mintage 60,000 ,beautiful coins .the problem is a ton of fakes hit the market when it was released , the sets I bought from a women who paid over 10,000 for the 3 ,from one of those mail order coin shops ,she overpaid ,I paid her less , the thing is all 6 gold coins in my sets are graded pf 70 by NGC ,so i know they are authentic, I think if you could buy a set for a little under 2000.00 you would be doing good ,the fakes you can spot pretty easy ......

    Hi low,
    Do you by any chance have the issue price and the market price for the 3 sets in just the 4 silver coin sets?

    Much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Hi Silverfever,

    Sorry I don't know the issue price for the silver set. Current market price is about RMB 5500 - 6000.
