Hello,

I was looking  in the NGC world census for Chinese silver medals, and noticed  rather large populations for these 2 medals.
2010 Yu Yuan 389 graded   1-67, 88-68, 279-69 and 16-70s
2013 Lan Ting  463 graded           2-68, 212-69 and 249-70s
Both have around 2000 mintage
I was wondering if a larger marketer was grading these and promoting them?

Any ideas why these large NGC  populations when very few show up on Ebay?

We, as a group need to discuss more subjects than we have been doing lately

My two bits again

Ebay represents far less than 1% of the sale transactions for modern Chinese coins in any given year, for most of the big dealers it is often a few basis points in sales and purchases.  Using ebay to determine rarity or price is only a tiny data point in a world where almost all transactions are done privately.  The best indicator of rarity is, trying to buy something and it takes months or a year to find it at reasonable price.
