I have said before I like this reference book....but one cautionary note.  It appears some of the mintage information may not be correct and may require changes before the hard copy is released...unless I am wrong.

Fore example....1995 silver proof panda mintage = 2500.  1996 silver proof panda = 1000 (not sure of exact number but this is close, since I don't have the book in front of me.

Also, there are mintages for gold pandas by Mint.

I spoke to the author in Hong Kong. He told me he and his team are working to correct errors in the proofreading edition.

I really like the idea of a "proofreading edition". I don't know if I have seen it done before in other arrears, but it really helps to get the definitive edition less problematic. I hope we can have easy access to this book when it is released.

Mr. P.A., poetry now! Yours?

Good wishes!

I guess you have to be old enough to recognize it. It is by Paul Simon.
