That is a wow.  The Color silver pandas were ignored for many years, probably since issued.  Now they get a big price?   Other Chinese are going up too but not all, yet.....

KOT, that's a MS70 ... even a MS69 could easily fetch $400-500. Many of those 83 small bears were used as jewelry piece - and not worth a damn for collectors.

Dynamike is correct. The award winning 1983 panda design made the 1/20 a popular choice for jewelry, especially coin rings. This coin was cheap then. I bought one for $30.  By late 80s it became rare and price jumped. I would assume the number of BU quality coins is much less than the published mintage. Some might got melted also.

Thanks guys. +1

Looks like price is jumping fast. Pricepedia July issue listed 83 1/20 NGC 69 at $600. Now peter has one listed on eBay for $1,050.

It is a difficult to find coin, period. In 2006 it was offered on Panda America's website for $109. It was a slow seller – nobody cared at that time. For comparison, at the same time a 1984 1/20 oz. gold Panda was $72 and auction prices would have been lower for both coins.

I know this Chinese coin forum, but I can't resist not posting about Shiba Inu coin, imagine investing $3400 14 months ago and today being worth $5B.  It is headlines like these that are attracting all the young collectors and investors into cyrtos at the expense of numismatic coins.

$5 billion?   I posted about 2 Porsche 911's that sold for $1 million and $285,000.  Crazy prices.  The world is looking for real investments because there are $ trillions of currency ready to flood in. 

Look at Venezuela.   Crypto currencies have no value because of power and/or internet loss.  They use shavings of gold and silver to buy.  The USA is on its way to become the United States of Venezuela and we all know this...

It is a matter of time for the flood of currencies to come into bullion and numismatic coins/numismatic Chinese coins/medals.  Very wise to own Chinese but also to own junk silver dimes as they are the smallest form of recognizable currency and other junk silver.   Junk will be the first to become money when the USD drops in value.  Bullion will too but many articles are about the hundreds of thousands of fake coins/bars in circulation today....

I hadn't noticed how much the 1983 G1/20 has increased in value lately.

Yeah. It took a while.

Back in 2012 (i was late), i started to collect small Pandas. During the first years mostly 1/20 and 1/10.  I realized that 1/20 1983 and 1999 Serif were very hard to find. At that time harder to find than 1998... BUT A LOT CHEAPER.

I took every 1983 OMP i could find (i love OMP), ... i should have taken them all.
I think i bought one capsuled. Later on i graded that one and it got a 69. I only grade the "not OMP coins", or with OMP that have slightly open parts.

Assuming it’s not a black and white photo (which doesn’t brass or copper) it’s appearance tends to lean towards zinc rather than aluminum, nickel or tin.  Very doubtful it would be palladium. I wonder if it was a “one off” to test before the later /standard restrikes were struck?

Looks more like a poor design than a fifth leg.....

Imagine if you consigned this hazy piece to the Hong Kong Auction and were expecting it to sell for a few hundred dollars, and you wake up this morning and see it sold for $22,800.  This is a case where you wouldn't mind paying around 20% auction fees!
