The NGC grader needs NEW glasses!!!!

I suppose they've stuck with the decision to mint this in only the 20 oz size?
It seems sad they would end their series this way, any ideas why they chose to do this?

You can see that this design calls for a large medal. Smaller surfaces won't be able to show all the details of the previous medals. This is a summary, so to speak, of the previous ones.

I still wish they also did this medal as antiqued silver but the design concept is good (IMO!!!) as it showcases all medals in the series.

Chinese Panda Coins / Re: The importance of Master Sets
« Last post by KeyDate1/2ozPandas on Today at 11:39:51 AM »
I have done that many times, I even made 100 multi holder sets and then converted 30 of them back to single holder.  Every time you reholder you risk damage to the coin and it is expensive, roughly $17/coin, so to do it may cost you $3000.

I have been thinking of converting my 1/2oz ms70 collection to all core red holders, but don't want risk damaging the coins or worse they stop offering that holder in the future and now future purchase won't be matching. Also you need to submit 100 coins at a time to get special holders.

Finally it takes up a lot of space to store slabbed coins, which may be the biggest challenge, space in China is a luxury, while Americans live in large in 3000-7000 sqft homes, in china apartments are 500-1500 sqft so storing bulky collectibles is a challenge, same goes for safe deposit boxes. I don't know if Chinese trust banks to store their valuables.

I see Chinese collectors buying key coins or mini sets in holders, but entire master sets I don't if it is practical. Sets that trade at nice premium in holders are 12 piece lunar sets, year panda sets, silver panda set, proof sets, cultural coin sets, etc.

Includes 1 from each year so 1983-1985, 1987 is included.

Someday a ngc set will be in demand, but it is very hard to make with matching labels/slabs.

One solution could be to first of all assemble the complete NGC '69 set (with different label designs and numbers) then send to NGC in one batch to get new labels and consecutive numbers. I don't know anyone who has done it but I can't see why it cannot be done.
