Set Description

Accumulated over decades of searching the globe, this silver medal proof set consists of 69 unique pandas containing 58 ”top pops” & 11 “2nd finest”. With so many of the top pops possessing scarce populations, this has been quite the journey acquiring piece by piece & is truly the highlight of all my collections. Most of the rarities have been acquired directly through personal relationships I've established over my years involved with numismatics & it’s simply amazing to see just how far panda medals have come. I started collecting Chinese medals in the 90’s… back then there was merely 1 panda medal being released each year coming out of the Munich International Coin Show. When the annual Munich show concluded releasing pandas in 1997, I thought that was the end of panda medals…. and in a lot of ways it was the end… many years went by before panda medals were minted again. From the year 1997, it wasn't till 2011 a panda would be the featured reverse design on a medal again & it came as part of a 3-coin limited set released by WWF commemorating their 50th Anniversary. I remember the exact same day I received my 2011 WWF set, an article was posted by Panda America encouraging pre-orders for panda medals being released at the 2012 Singapore show… 15 years later & the panda medals were finally coming back. Now let’s fast forward to 2016 where the panda medal market has absolutely EXPLODED! Just this year alone, there’s been 19 unique silver panda medals released from China… this is not including China fiat pandas/ world fiat pandas/ world panda medals… in 2016, China alone has released 19 unique silver panda medals from different conventions/ shows/ mints... with never-seen-before sizes/ series/ weights/ styles... and this year hasn't even concluded yet… I’m currently waiting on delivery of my silver panda medals from the 2016 4th China Panda Coin Collection Expo & 2016 Macau Show… and who knows if any other medals will be released before year’s end. There's so many unique opportunities in collecting panda medals right now. Aside from the array of options, we’re seeing innovative designs with insanely low mintages. A few months ago, I received an email alerting that the Nanjing antique pandas, with total mintage of 30, were released & available for order. Before I could even log in to buy a few, they had completely sold out… in the matter of hours. I just don't understand how a total mintage of 30, selling for a couple hundred dollars each, could possibly be worth the time it takes designing/ engraving/ minting/ marketing/ shipping etc etc. My guess is these medals will be nearly impossible to locate a few years from now if they’re this difficult to acquire at the time of release. Food for thought… I just bought a beautiful 1984 1oz silver panda medal in PF69… included/ unadvertised was a nice surprise of the original box & receipt. I had always wondered what these panda proofs sold for back in the 80’s. This coin costed me $1,900 in PF69 & the original receipt showed a $50 purchase price. This panda medal has a mintage of 1,000 & its increased in value 38X in 30 years (not many investments in the world offers that type of ROI)… that being said, I can’t imagine what these panda medals, with mintages in the DOUBLE digits, will be worth 30 years from now. It’s impossible to truly gage the potential because nobody has seen mintages this low before. Right now, you’re seeing a small window into the future of pandas… this market will only continue to grow! There’s no bullion/ fiat/ medals… there’s absolutely no collector coins in the world doing what the panda medals are doing right now. 2016 is truly the year of the panda!
