Thanks for the link! It’s always exciting to see what’s being offered and on the flip side what’s not being offered.

Thanks for the info. It is an auction in HK. For a US collector, will there be any import tax and how is oversea shipping situation nowadays?

Huge amount of listings.   I found a few but not many.  Where are the MCC?....

Thanks for the link but many MCC are missing.   Guess i will continue to go over the 60 pages on your first link provided on your first post.   Many of these listings are ancient or vintage.....

There are 120 modern lots, the most I have seen all year.  I am expecting very high prices unless new policy for mainlanders of no quarantine going into HK is reversed.  Travel into HK is still restricted so not sure how many dealers and investors will make the trip.

Scrolling through, I don't see any MS (non-proof) 1/2 ounce gold pandas, either as single coins or as part of a set.  Zero, from 1982 to 2021.  That seems pretty remarkable, given the overall number of coins being offered in these auctions.

Thanks for the additional link.  I chatted w/ a dealer and member here that is in HK or China and under quarantine too.  He is there for the auction, did not know......

Thanks for the links to the upcoming StacksBowers auctions.

I carefully looked through the various modern Chinese coins in the live and internet only auctions to determine whether there was anything I truly wanted without the opportunity to preview in person and, then, to determine the price I was willing to pay.  Surprisingly, there was little I wanted for my collection so the potential final bid (plus 20%) was not material.  I saw so many items which I do not own.  Still, as time passes, I am finding a lower interest level.  Next, I will look at the older (non-modern) Chinese coins.  Maybe, these will make me excited.

Live bidding hasn't started yet, but a few have been bid up quite a bit already.

I didn't win anything in the Heritage auction last night and will not win anything in this auction either.  The market for lunars is in a multi-year bull market, I haven't listed a single lunar coin for sale in 2 years, they sell above market price before they even arrive.

There are two schools of thought about modern Chinese coins, 1) xi will kill the economy with his reforms against the rich and the market will crash, 2) xi will impose even stricter currency controls and monitor all your online assets so rich will buy collectibles to hide their wealth.   I am leaning towards the second scenario and would expect a super spike in some coins and would take advantage to sell into the strength.

I would agree w/ option 2) as gold/silver will soon take center stage.   It seems the option 1) is just a transfer of wealth from citizens to government....

MS Empire Dragon dollars are really turning up, given there are high grade examples up for auction I would not be surprised to see record highs!  :ohmy: :thumbup:
