Congrats! You did well. Your reason to own it is what coin collecting is all about. You like the medal, and you , now, you own it at a great price. It is illiquid now, but in a few years, I think you will be very happy you own it.

Modern Chinese Medals / Re: CATTE aluminum Feng Yunming set
« Last post by fwang2450 on Yesterday at 05:09:45 PM »
In the tenth year of Tang Zhenguan (AD 636), Emperor Taizong of Tang, Li Shimin, embossed the images of the six horses in order to commemorate their meritorious military service. He often rode these horses during battles. The carvings are fine and vivid. The six horses each have their own form, well-proportioned, strong and fit. These images are among the best works of art in the Tang Dynasty.

Identification Help / Commemorative silver medal ID help
« Last post by aragog on Yesterday at 04:45:24 PM »
I have only Kann and Lin Gwo Ming books and present medal is not there.
It seems to be commemorative medal and not coin related.
But the design is so great that I could not resist to purchase it.
Could you please help with identification or at least  translate what is written on it?
Would appreciate any help.

The coin is definitely real.  As is it is worth $150-$175, but if it grades 69 then $350-$400 is possible.  It will cost about $70 to NCS+NGC+oversize holder.  Medals market is very weak right now.  Many of the gold medals from 1987-1988 are selling for 98%-100% of melt. Silver medals are still trading at a premium to melt, but the premium continues to shrink each month.  I typically bid 20% over melt for silver 5oz coins and put them away.  For Kilos, I am bidding 10% over melt.  At those prices, I feel safe owning them as a bullion play that may turn numismatic someday.
Thank you for your info and being friendly. I feel much better now. I paid 183$ so not to much above your price range on worth. I wanted the coin and bid what i was comfortable paying. I had a hard time finding value range of the coin and just figured it should go for 225-275 range.I feel like kind of a odd ball when it comes to panda and other coins.I buy them to collect purely because i want them, not for "silver stacking" or retirement funds ect ect. But i do want them to be real and that is why i stay off eBay for the most part. Lots of fakes.Thank you again for your time and I love your profile picture.

.. So with negative rates, governments and central banks are not solving the debt problem of the world but exacerbating it. By trying to solve a debt problem with more debt, the problem will grow exponentially before it implodes.
