1995 Traditional Culture 1 Oz Gold - What is a CoA worth?
« on: February 23, 2013, 06:02:02 AM »
Dear fellows,

by accident I came into possession of an original CoA of the 1995 Traditional Culture 1 Oz gold series. Any idea what could it be worth?

Any feedback is appreciated!

Regards

As a general rule COA for coins are worth 2%-7% of the coin value.  The 2% for expensive coins and 7% for cheaper coins or for coins that were packaged by telemarketers with no COA included. Some sample pricing for COAs that I have sold over the year, coin prices are for 69 quality.

$1200 1981 Bronze age gold set, single COA, set price $30000, so 4%
$75     1983 27g silver panda, single COA, coin price $2000, so 3.7%
$100   1983 15g silver pig, single COA, coin price $3000, so 3.3%
$20     1988 1oz silver dragon, single COA, coin price $400, so 5%
$1000 1992 I&D gold set of 5, 5 COAs, set price $40000, so 2.5%
$250   1992 I&D silver piefort set of 5, 5 COA, set price $7000, 3.6%
$200   1994 gold panda proof set of 5, single COA, set price $9000, so 2.2%
$220   1995 1oz gold panda proof, single COA, coin price $11000, so 2%
$30     1996 1oz silver panda proof, single COA, coin price $450, so 6.6% (cheap coin, percentage is higher)
$300   2000 scallop gold dragon, single COA, coin price $5000, so 6% (this coin was included in telemarketed set with 5oz silver dragon)

For the Peking opera, I would estimate the COA is probably worth 2% of the coin's value, so about $600-$900, however, I would recommend you put it on eBay for $1000 best offer and over the course of a year you may end up selling it for $400-$1000, if you want to sell it in a rush, just put it up as auction starting price $0.88 and let it go for whatever the market brings, it could go for $100-$400 in an ebay auction.  Good Luck.

The price for paper COA is that high?  What the heck will the OMP box price be or does that include the box?......

The boxes have much less value, often $5-$50, unless they include a toy or sets were sold in telemarketed products so original boxes were not provided.  Many of the boxes are generic and many different coins share a similar box.  Some example box pricing:

$250 1981 bronze age gold, set sells for $30000
$25 1986-1988 gold panda proof sets, sets sell for $3800
$15 1987 1oz, 5oz silver panda set, set sells for $550 raw
$20 1988-1999 1oz gold piefort lunars, generic box, coins sell for $2500-$13000
$40 1992-1996 silver invention and discovery with toy, sets sell for $500-$1300
$50  1994 4pc unicorn set with statue, set sells for $1200
$75 1994 1oz silver panda proof, coin sells for $400, this is a rare box

How about the 1994 1/4 oz gold, 1/4 bi-metallic and 1 oz silver 3 coin proof set  box and COA. How much is worth?

Keep in mind all the COAs and boxes priced above, with the exception of the unicorn set, were produced in conjunction with the coins and contained Chinese and English text.  COA that are English only or German only were produced by telemarketing firms and are not as desirable as those priced above.

The 1994 Prestige Panda Proof Set is a telemarketer box and COA, see pic below.  I sell them for $30 for the box and COA combined.

Unfortunately, I don't have any 1996 i&D boxes left, simply because the music box is nicest of all the toys and whenever I sold that set in PF69 the customer always asked for the box and toy (even those in China paid extra $40 shipping for the box), other years like 1994 (bell) and 1995 (porcelain) customers didn't bother asking for it. Next time I get one I will let you know.

For what it is worth, this seller has a few gold proof sets, page 4.   Do not know if they are rare or priced right......

You may want to try PandaAmerica, they mentioned having some stock I&D boxes in their warehouse.

Here is a link to the 1996 (set 5) box: http://shop.jibi.net/TopicOther.asp?t=5&BoardID=24&id=74228

It has a music box which plays music.
