hello what do you think about this packaging it's possible to cut this if you want buy one or two coins ?
it's original packaging ? only if you buy 30 coins.

If you want to buy only a few coins (via internet) , the seller will pop a few coins out of the plastic sheet and send them to you in their original capsules.
If you want to buy only a few coins (in person) , the seller will still pop a few coins out of the plastic sheet and hand them to you in their original capsules.

These days, if you do not buy 30 at a time, you do not get a double seal. For all intents and purposes, silver pandas in OMP now refers to the mint capsule only.

Oh, I think I understand.

You cannot get to the coins unless you open the soft plastic enveloping the hard plastic sheet. The soft plastic is sealed around the coin sheet.

You can easily use a scissors to cut the soft and hard plastic sheet though.

Well I have just discussed by e-mail with the shop of our conversation.
He answered me that he has took the photo on the Internet at random to show me a sheet, but he says that he don't have time to photograph coin for the moment but I not me inquiete all the coin is true that he would not allow to sell fake.
I am reassured but I wait for a new photo of his coins before buy.

The coin in the photo appears to be fake. The packaging is not correct. Do not buy.

I would avoid this dealer if he is to lazy to take photo's of his own products. I really doubt that it's an example. If he is an honest guy, why show pictures of fakes, my guess is he doesn't know his coins. Stay away XAAR not worth the stress.

Lots of honest people on this forum that could help you out. If not, they could steer you in the right direction.

Good luck.

hello everybody,
Can you tell me what do you think about this sheet please ? it is ok ?


Hello

I come back on this topic, because it is just concerning my problem.
I would like to buy directly in China.

Some sellers, even with good evaluations, propose me panda gold coins 2014 in plastic pouches as shown on the picture of xaar here above. Even double sealed ( capsule + pouch) !!
Of course, the seller is CRYING  that it is 24 carats original coins + MOP ; but I don’t believe one word !

But other sellers are proposing me brand new panda gold coins in MOP. ( Shanghai )


It looks like to be a MOP from  Shanghai mint, but  as I never saw one, I cannot say.
What is your opinion ? Is it looking like MOP Shanghai ?

I am in a big trouble for deciding because their prices are 20% under the spot ! ( as they say, because promotional period)

What do you think ? Have you already seen ( heard) about fake pouches ( recent years, 2013, 2014) which are looking very close to the MOP ?

Thank you for your answers.

20% below spot raises flags for me. Too good to be true. For recent gold Panda all I have seen in the US are Shenzhen Guobao Mint OMP.

For me too !
But : it is not only one seller, but much more  who are proposing these prices.
And the pouch "seems"to be OMP.

Who can confirm that my picture is a Shangai Mint OMP of 2014 ?
Thanks
