Based on the information, the planned mintage for the series were fully released to the distributors.



Thank you, Poconopenn.
Your science closes the debate.
So, the coins don't seem to be so rare physically but that's a fact that they are very rare for sale on market.
Hope chinese families will not sell them at the same time !

One of the reason of high valuation of round and colored vs. fan and flower in all lunar series is related to the package of gold & silver set. For round and colored lunar sets, the gold coin is 1/10 oz., while for fan and flower sets, the gold coin is ½ oz. Most mid-income family inside China can afford 1/10 oz. gold set, but not ½ oz. gold set as gift for the new-born babies. Lunar coins are very popular as gift for many different occasions for Chinese, inside and outside China.

As you mentioned, 2009 colored ox is the first coin with a paper cutting design, which is originated from China and becomes the folk culture for many centuries, for colored lunar series. This new design definitely made this colored ox very special and popular among the collectors. As always, the first issue of a new designed series usually will have a higher valuation vs. later issues.

It is my understanding that all coins issued by China Mint since 2003 were made according to the planned mintage, except pandas, which have not been popular among collectors inside China, until recently.

Many recently issued commemorative coins with a mintage of 60,000-100,000 are rarely seen at eBay and have a very high valuation. For examples, sacred Buddhist mountain series (2012-2015), the 2 oz. silver coins have a mintage of 100,000 and the current valuation is in the range of $350-$450, about the same or higher valuation than silver proof pandas (1989-1996) which have a much lower mintage and seen at eBay regularly.     


good information! thanks
