I just saw one of these medals in person at a local Bay Area coin show. When I asked about the price, he mentioned $5k. The seller said we "could talk" about an offer of $4K :blink:

I'd much prefer to buy this piece of metal for between $20 and $80, thank you.

The fact that this piece was produced and issued gives some insight into the "randomness element" of the China Mint in the early 1980"s.

Hello there.  I know this is an old post.  However, I thought I'd revive it to ask if anyone knows what the actual mintage is of this medal?  I know it says 500, but are there really 500 in existence or were some melted down because of the error.  I can't seem to find a lot of info on this medal.  Thanks much.

wow! that is amazing. I just wish there was more info on this medal other than what is listed in the newspapers above.  No one seems to know how many are still in existence.  I've never seen a 69.  I've seen a few 68's.  I actually have 1 68 and one raw, as I was fascinated by the newspaper articles initially about a year or so ago, but then to hunt for more info, nothing.  oh well.  Thanks for chiming in my friend.

to have 2 is pretty good:)  ,you would have to assume that if the newspaper article is accurate and they where in high demand at the show  pretty close to the 500 where issued and distributed as it appears it was a sell out at the show.........that being said 30 years ago is a long time .....the few raw ones I have seen or heard about are pretty tarnished ,I would certainly have them conserved ,only apx 5% of the presumed population has been graded by NGC ,you got to believe 5% have been lost misplaced or have been sold for melt by people who did not know what they had:) I bought a 1984 panda out of a silver pile in a pawn shop so it does happen.....
