    Myself and others here have posted about this on other threads and I think the conclusion is you can try NCS conservation it is doubtful they can remove it but possible . I am not sure if it is worth it for 1 2010 coin though. The white spots are a shame but just an unfortunate part of life with pandas as I am learning. good Luck

    Thanks Silverstar1
    i am new to pandas, just got some recently, i guess i will keep it, not worth returning, or trying to exchange it, does it effect the value quite a bit?

    yeah I am new to pandas too , at least collecting them and the older ones. White spots will affect the price but a 2010 does not have a real high premium so I wouldnt worry about it too much , I have quite a few of newer ones with spots too but it is not worth spending the cash to conserve them.

    Hi guys, just wanted to check for those who ordered via the Panda America website for delivery to Aussie, did anyone receive any order confirmation(other than status "approved" on your Panda America account) or have they charged your credit card?

    I ordered a week ago when it was A$1.08 to US$1.... now its already A$1.056 to US$1 :/

    Panda America do this and a couple of other companies Ive dealt with, they are just confirming that your CC is real & not fake thats all, you can black out certain information before sending it. e.g. your address etc.

    I also received that same email from Doris last night. Not sure if you can ring and confirm your address with them. I used a debit card to order the medals, and I don't think you get statements for debit cards... Not sure what to send them to confirm my address.

    You're right you don't get statements for debit cards and there's no real way to verify.

    I suggest you either ring them or email and ask for alternative ways to verify and if that fails choose the money wire option.

    Damn. Same thing happend to me. This sucks as I have a visa debit card and don't get statements.

    What a noob system they are using to ship orders.

    :lol:

    Debit cards are only common in Australia, they might not have anticipated this.

    They might accept Paypal as an alternative, they do sell on eBay after all.

    Have to go and contact them to see what they say though.

    Just to follow up, I went to Commonwealth Bank a couple of days back to ask them if they could give me a statment which had my debit card number in it as well as my address. They duly obliged and created one for me.

    I've sent that statement back to Doris and got confirmation from her last night that my order has been processed and they will notify me with tracking number once its ready to be shipped(after 31st March) :D

    Turns out that I will have a table at the Singapore Fair, and look forward to meeting all the Panda collectors who can make it there.

    I will be bringing books and Pricepedias to sign and sell, but probably not any coins. No doubt PandaAmerica and the other dealers will have plenty of coins to keep everyone happy. I sure intend to return with pictures and stories, though!

    Best wishes,
