    Do we have an overall picture (pun!) of how these world heritage medals are grading? Both silver and bronze. Is there another PF70 apart from the one Lucky sold? Has NGC started publishing the grades? Thanks for information.

    The NGC grading census for this series is in mess.

    The March grading result is not update till now.

    As my understand, there is 1 or 2 MS70 for greatwall. I even have no change to het the MS70 from him.

    I Might send my brass for grading in June. Grading fee around usd60-70 due to oversize casing. It is excluding shipping cost damn expansive for grading fee for a brass medal. I really cannot make the decision at this moment. Any suggestion or thought?

    Incredible! :) This clearly outperforms almost every medal that come from "Western" mints, except maybe Marcel Jovine which achieved similar "wooow" factor.

    Btw, do you have some parrot at home? :) I had two. Second lived so long I don't even know how old it was when he died. I miss him sometimes. :/

    Thanks for the videos, Andrew. First of their kind (slabbed), I believe?


    One thing to keep in mind for anybody while filming these, is to try to slowly capture it from various angles, in order to show off the relief.

    Even then, photos & videos do not do these justice, due to the 3-D nature. This type is amazing in person, and must have them in-hand to fully appreciate. I only speak from the 80g/45mm category, so can only imagine what it's like for the 300g/70-80mm's.


    Too bad about the mis-label. :(

    Though I have seen worse mistakes.


    Still hot medals! :)

    The NGC census for *many* China medals of this type is a mess! :lol:


    Slabbed brass is a tough call. I have a couple, though 45mm. Glad I have them. You saw photos. Very nice. :)


    But understood with $$. Each individual has to decide for themselves. I, too, wrestle with getting more in brass.

    Though slabbed 300g Ag is not cheap, either. Brass might be a good compromise, especially for those if it comes down to not having any of this size, at all.

    Indeed ag come with price. I will share another brass Buddha medal this week. The silver is 600 gram if not wrong but the price tag is super high. I will rather buy xi shi or world heritage.

    600g is child's play. You need to go with 999g.


    If you're not stacking these, you're not a real collector..! ;)

    2012 Dazu Rock Carving medals are awesome looking medals. The 999 is the mintage not the grams. Also, I believe the diameter is not 99mm but I am not 100% sure about that.

    Guess the set can be split up, then? Or are they not originally a set (brass & copper)?

    I thought about picking up the brass. Still on my watch list, but will probably pass.


    The silver looks to work best with this one. But too much $$ for me! :(

    I just bought the brass alone rather than both.

    here the brass set for world heritage series 1-3. The boxes is different with the silver.

    The mintage is high which is 1000.

    However I view the price is reasonable as compare to ag. This is alternative to appreciate the art of the medal with much lower price as personal opinion. It should range between 140 - 200 USD per piece.

    Here the video. Damn boring water background of my shrimp tank lol
