In 2014 these were released 3-4 weeks ahead of any others, including the First Strikes.

What's It Worth? / Re: Need help identifying Fatman yuan coin?
« Last post by poconopenn on Yesterday at 09:57:59 PM »
Welcome to the forum.

This is a common date of 1914 YSK silver dollar.

The edge reedings is OK. However, the rim surface is troublesome. What is the weight of this coin?

The China mint made 750 individually numbered sets from Shenzhen Guobao with letters of authenticity showing 1st of 750 issued which were used for the NGC label.

Can you post the COA? I am wondering, if the COA is from NGC or directly from China Mint (Great Wall Investment Co. of H.K.).

Just for information
 
In 2014, PCGS, authorized by China Gold Coins Inc., issued first strike 2014 panda in its holder inside China with a letter of certificate from Great Wall Investment Co. of H.K.
 
In 2015 Shanghai Gold Coin Inc. (SHG), authorized by China Gold Coins Inc., marketed first strike 10,000 5-coin sets of gold panda and 10,000 of single gold panda sets in a special holder to the general public via a bank in Shanghai. The first batch, 1000 5-coin set, was sold out in about 1 minute. The second batch, 4,000 sets was sold out in about 2 hours and the third batch, 5000 sets, was about 4 hours. PCGS also market first strike 2016 set inside China.

IMO, NGC is late in this game.

Did you try this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1984-1-2oz-Gold-Chinese-Panda-Sealed-RARE-20-000-Minted-/311727825998?hash=item48946d244e:g:-5EAAOSwcLxYD9bA

Phils coins has been operating in kansas for 25 years. (so this means he is in this coin for melt or melt plus $50 maybe $100 max which is doubtful. ) you should have a good chance at getting it for your price if the seller is not too greedy.

What's It Worth? / Need help identifying Fatman yuan coin?
« Last post by simonc on Yesterday at 05:46:19 PM »
I recently inherited a bunch of coins and trying to figure out what I have here. From the small amount of research it looks to be a 1914 fatman yuan but other than that I don't know much else. Can anybody identify and provide an approximate value? I'll be posting up some other coins as well in the future mostly interested in this one at the moment,

Thank you in advance!

Production of limited run proof versions of these bullion gold coin fractionals could be a better alternative for gold panda coin collectors.

However, not all of those 750 sets were graded as MS70 by NGC.
Of the 5 denominations the 30g is the rarest...

Only 548 G500Y pieces were graded as NGC MS70:

Only 575 G200Y pieces were graded NGC MS70:
https://www.ngccoin.com/census/world/china-panda-series/sc-367/g200y/varieties/413220/

There were more than 750 pieces of G100Y, G50Y, and G10Y graded by NGC so there must have been an additional metric or certificate used for those coins.
The first coins struck at a mint typically have the best details and fewest imperfections.
Though Chinese modern coins have improved their quality control since 1982 it is still interesting to think about having the first struck specimens documented and appraised.
This is initially why designations such as "First Strike' changed to "First Release" or "Early Release," or "First Day of Issue.:
Without the paperwork you can't prove if a coin was actually struck first, only that it was obtained and graded within a certain window, whether it be a day or a month.
With China Gold Corp. certifying a batch of coins as being the first off the coin press, these pieces are given a special designation and are actual "First Strikes."
