Re: Panda Photos

I just got in the 1/2 oz  50 Yuan 1983 Gold Panda NGC MS69 so that completes this 5 coin set for the 1983 year …
1 oz, .5 oz, .25 oz, .10 oz & .05 oz.

This 1983 Gold Panda set is a complete NGC MS69 set and this is the second year of mintage for the Gold Pandas. 

I actually came out really well on this set as all coins (except the half) were purchased raw in their OMP from Apmex months ago which saved me the premium on purchasing NGC 69's. I then sent them for NCS conservation & NGC grading and got back MS 69's. I'm not very good at pictures with coins so the pictures do not look great but the coins actually look phenomenal in person.

It's rewarding to see such low mintages on these Chinese coins when compared to American Eagles & Canadian Maples with millions minted !!! smile

Re: Panda Photos

I just hate how coins that are trapped in horrible, dispicable, corrosive, oil residue plastic for 25 years still come out as PF69 Ultra cameo smile

Then again I only paid $1,708 for it raw and then $22.50 for NCS conservation then grading ...

*DISCLAIMER* I know this seller is way out out of line with this price but then again you never know when a whale may come along ! big_smile

I have recently seen this identical coin sell anywhere from $2,800 to $3,500 and considering I'll be holding it for the next 20 years I think I'll probably get my money back on it.

Re: Panda Photos

Awwwww!!!! That's cute!!!

Congratz on the stunning wife and handsome son!!! He looks about the same age as my boy. smile

I'm sure your boy will have a very large and sound inheritance when it comes his time to take stewardship of it - especially if there are Pandas in there.

Even 2011 and 2010 Pandas will be valuable in 20years time, how much more so the rare Pandas! smile

That is one cute baby...Tinky is too smile
Seriously cute nickname!!!
I'm conflicted as to whether to show my wife this picture. On one hand I know she'd find Tinky as adorable as I do, on the other hand I KNOW I'd hear the "we're not really too old to have another baby" speech. Btw...we are! LOL

Thanks yennus, tamo42 & 940palmtx for the nice comments !

Yes you are correct yennus ... in 20 years when Tinky opens his bank safety boxes he should have a very sweet collection of silver/gold/platinum Chinese Pandas along with common bullion as well.

All my mom handed me when I got older was a box of my old army men, GI Joes and other childhood toys ... kinda sucks, wish I would have had a few pandas sad

I took a chance and showed your son to my wife, she of course found him as adorable as I and thought the nickname was the cutest she'd ever heard. I can't help but smile when I say it and plan on using it if my daughters will ever give us a grandson smile

Thank you sir for those very kind comments !

yes that was the nickname I gave him and it fits him perfectly ... he just looks like a lil "tinky"

I do collect rare pandas and invest in bullion because I enjoy it but I honestly can't wait for the day when I give it all to him ! smile

It's refreshing to hear some people still believe in leaving their children a financial legacy.
In these days of reverse mortgages and the idea of doing nothing for children, as if helping them or leaving them an inheritance somehow guarantees a 'spoiled' child. I'm not wealthy, but I'd rather leave what i have when I die to my children than take a bunch of cruises in my hip-break years. Good onya Comeaux for maintaining the ancient tradition of familial wealth preservation.

Re: Panda Photos

Just a bug bear. Some one posted a thread on the numbering system NGC uses. Something about if the coin has been to NCS and has been conserved and then goes to NGC for grading the number on the capsules will start with a three. Just noticed one of the 1983 coins in the first pics starts with a 4. Does this indicate that this coin is not conserved? 
Still love the collection. Just a question. Sorry for shooting a hole.

very good observation chilidog ... the NGC numbering system cannot be 100% conclusive but from what I posted in that thread you referenced I feel it's about 90% based on a large number of submissions and coins. This coin that you referenced is a "cross-over" from PCGS hence the "4" starting number. I have done a few crossovers and they all begin with a four and I know conclusively that this coin was crossed over ... good eye ! smile

Re: Panda Photos

Congratulations on a stunning collection Comeaux, the 1/2oz 95 and bimetallic 91 stand out like big hairy bear balls for me .  Droool, awesome coins.  Can't stand those coloured bears though for some reason, no offence. 

Thanks for your great contributions and info to this forum also, doesn't go without notice and is much appreciated.  Cheers!

Hello 25Grizzlies … Thank you very much for these kind words … it is rewarding to see that some members do appreciate the time I expend here to disseminate what little knowledge I do have.

When I came into this forum I saw SS members with many questions, realizing the passion we all have for our hobby, it is gratifying to know that I may be of assistance in some small way. smile
