I will number hem sequentially when the series comes to an end...
I am afraid the 2015 will come out and then I may need to renumber them again?
Any idea when the 2005 Scallop series will end ?
But the way, I have the COA's for each coin as well.

I am also very close to completing the 1993 Scallop series as well as the fan series.
The 1993 series would be worth renumbering now as this series has ended.

I also prefer the Lunars to the Pandas and I am certain there is a lot of money to be made on Lunars in the near future as they are much rarer and quite undervalued relative to their rarity.

By the way, I'm also a strong believer in gold 1/10oz Pandas all ms70.
Very close to completing a set there as well.

Well the 2005 scallop lunar set should end in 2016  ,we have the goat/sheep 2015, and then 2016 monkey and that is 12:) ,
I am working on the colorized 1998 to 2009 set :) I have a few that I have to grade but the 1998 tiger and the 2006 dog are tough ,especially that dog :) that is $1000 coin easy in gradable condition.........  our good friend in China is working on it for me:)

Indeed
NGC Confirmed they can number sequentially if I submit for reholder

Nice!  IMHO, I would resubmit when I have the complete 12.

Hmm.  Will NGC allow you to request a particular certificate # if you prove you got the certificate # previous sequence?

Good to see all top grade...

1993 - Scallop series - 70's? That would be a tough one to assemble.

In my opinion, all lunars are selling quietly.
There seem to be less and less 70's up for sale...where have they all gone?
The Fan Lunars are also proving to be very hard to assemble.

The 09 ox is a very pricey coin in 69 grade NGC a year ago  it was a $600 coin today even in what most would call a flat to down MCC market you would be hard pressed to find one for less than $900-$1100 usd   the Dog is similar in price ,the tiger $500 to $700, there was some discussion a while back about colored MCC and in particular lunars  price wise they have on the whole appreciated substantially in the last 18 month's ,in comparison a 2000 silver mirror panda has gone down apx 25 to 35% , Chinese love colored coins:)

Informed and rational discussion of MCC by serious collectors and dealers.
This is what makes this forum great, a big thank you to all concerned!

I have sent in several OMP to NGC.
I will let you know what I am missing once I get the results for these.
It's getting expensive to assemble a pf70 set so I am taking it step by step
