That kilo will never sell for 50k, melt alone is is 62k. I think this coins sells for at least 100k, I'll make an offer to anyone in here who
has one for 85k.  PM me if you do,

Some good material but not alot of it, very few pandas very surprising. They touted this as the larges ever, certainly not for modern.

The links are for Vintage and Pandas or MCC.   

Is there a link for other Chinese that are not included in these two links?.......

I've had a chance to spend a little more time scrolling through the Stacks Auctions.  There are some obvious rarities and popular coins, but there are a few other yummy coins that are off the radar.  One that I'll put money on blowing past its mere $5,000-$10,000 estimate is this Annam coin with five bats.

https://auctions.stacksbowers.com/lots/view/3-W1M1S/annam-5-tien-nd-1848-83-tu-duc-pcgs-ms-63

I've owned two of a slightly different Annam 5 Tien with 5 bats.  I kept the AU58 and sold my duplicate AU50.  The bats have an interesting meaning as explained by forum member low in this thread.

First: 五十 (fifty)

Second: 明命 (1820 - 1840) 通宝(copper coin)

Third: 五福 The Chinese for bat (fu 蝠) sounds identical to the word for good fortune(fu 福) making bats a popular Chinese rebuses. Five bats together represent the ‘Five Blessings’ (wufu 五福): long life, wealth, health, love of virtue and a peaceful death.

Fourth: 嗣德 (1848 - 1883) 通宝 (copper coin)

I've been looking for these type of coins for 10+ years and you just don't see mint state examples of this bat type.  To see a MS63.  Wow!  I'd be quietly bidding, but I'm certain that it will go for way higher than I can possible afford.  I'll definitely be watching!

Some nice coins are now up for auction...

https://auctions.stacksbowers.com/auctions/3-VWJMH/the-may-2022-hong-kong-auction-session-c-rarities-night-lots-51001-51255?sort=current_price_desc&limit=36

Including seven Auto Dollars of at least VF35 or higher.

https://auctions.stacksbowers.com/lots?search=kweichow&lots_range=upcoming

It will be interesting how the market absorbs that number.  It appears that higher prices have brought out some supply.

The market didn't seem to have a problem absorbing all those Auto Dollars.  At first glance, the premium for PCGS graded coins has grown? (unfortunately, mine is NGC)

Another coin I was watching was the 1908 Y-14.  $216K for an MS62 is a strong price!  I am again left wondering what the price would be if it was NGC (mine is NGC, but crossing over to PCGS would be expensive at this point)

More bidding on many other coins over the next few days...Grab your popcorn...

Question . . . when I click on a link and browse prices for coins sold at auction, are the "sold" prices shown reflective of buyer premium, or not yet including the premium? (Not logged in)

It indeed went for way higher than I could afford.  Wow! https://auctions.stacksbowers.com/lots/view/3-W1M1S/annam-5-tien-nd-1848-83-tu-duc-pcgs-ms-63

The cheapest i have seen this popular pair in PF 69 UC sell for was about $100 each a few years ago.  Prices are up a bit but have a long way to go.....
