Title: 2015 gold pandas already selling in China

A 2015 G1/20 sold for $167 yesterday.  That seems like a very high premium over spot price for such a high mintage coin.  The SHG label indicates 00074/10000, but no grade.  I can't read the Chinese, but perhaps that is SHG's equivalent to a "First Strike" label, limited to 10000.  Or maybe someone really wants to have a 2015 now and is willing to pay a high price to be first.

To the right of the label is the three Chinese characters in red: 初打币, which I think is the equivalent of first strike.  according to this article: http://www.shgci.com/ne01.aspx?id=3299
1000 of them were sold on the initial release day of October 25.

The 2015 pandas have a cleaner look but I still like them better with the weight and purity.
