General Discussion / Ebay Search for China coins/medals for new collectors
« Last post by pandamonium on Yesterday at 06:21:02 PM »
New collectors are coming back to Chinese coins/medals.      Here is a basic tip searching for them.      If someone can add photos of ebay site, provide more info or correct my post, please do....

Go to Ebay.     Top of page, Blue Search box.      To left are 2 boxes, small and large.      1st box or "All Catagories" has arrow. 
Click arrow and click "Coins or Paper Money".       Large box or "Search for Anything", type in China coin/medal you wish to see.
Click Blue Search box to get there.       No need to be too specific so grade is not needed unless you are seaching for specific grade.     Example "1989 Gold Panda" should show all 89 gold pandas.     G10Y Gold Panda will show 1/10 oz.    View ALL coins on page.
By viewing ALL coins on each page, ebay will show some that maybe not on your list but if you know the market that is where some
bargainscan be found.     

When you find a coin/medal you like then click "Add to Watchlist" that will allow you to keep track of it.
Ebay's new improvements no worky.    In the past we could click "Advanced Search" to see past sales but today that is a mess.
For many that track coins/medals the "Watchlist" is important as we can see sales price.
I usually track 300 Chinese but due to sales my Watchlist is about 200.    Is inventory getting low?    I track all prices..
           
Once you get to 1989 Gold Pandas, you may find one you wish to investigate.   Click it to see it.
Click "See other items" to view seller's other coins/medals.     Many sellers have many coins from around the world.
Blue Search box and again click arrow, click "Coins and Paper Money".     Big box type in "China" and click Blue Search button.
This will allow you to see seller's China coins/medals and avoid the others.     Keep in mind you are now on seller's site, not ebay.

Read the multitude of past articles here or ask/post questions to find the best buys w/ the highest upside.     
Some Chinese may not be as beautiful as others but if they end up as big bucks then they are beauties.   
Stick to early years not new issue!    I am a Feng Yunming medals fan of course.....
Hopefully this will help new collectors from getting too confused.    Have the bravery to ask questions.    Why?
This market is slowing taking off and many Chinese will be out of your price range.     Now is the time to research and ask questions..
Good Luck!...

機制幣考古真相揭秘...1867上海壹兩
1.1867上海壹兩.....無芒線.有芒線兩樣式
2.這兩種的防偽巧思都設計在字形上.
3.教你一眼就能槍斃全部假幣的絕招.
4.此幣種兩樣式真幣在英文字母及數字筆劃皆設有陽刻息肉狀及蝕刻截角暗記多處.
5.但凡字體筆劃造型完整.中規中矩毫無人為刻意造就瑕疵的.全是不值一文的屁.
6.貼圖只會增長造假的氣焰.無助於評級鑑定的不長進.
7.仙人指路.牢記俺的忠告.別傻買.

Mechanism coin archaeological truth reveals... 1867 Shanghai one Tael
1.1867 Shanghai  one Tael..... no awn line. awn line.
2. These two kinds of anti-counterfeiting ingenuity are designed on the glyph.
3. Teach you the trick of shooting all the counterfeit coins at a glance.
4. This currency has two styles of genuine coins. The English letters and numbers are all marked with yang and polygons and etched corners.
5. But the font strokes are complete in shape. There is no one in the rules and regulations that is deliberately created. It is not worth a pen.
6. Textures will only increase the arrogance of fraud. It does not help the rating identification.
7. Immortal guide. Remember my advice. Don't be silly.

Thank you, Peter.

I hope the panda collector base in China won't grow too rapidly, as I still want to accumulate more panda at this price level  N66

only 85 books were sold at the show? That's telling me the panda collector base is really small in China.

For one, book sales, in general, were slow at BICE, according to my publisher. Second, the same book was sold last year at BICE (by China Financial Publishing, not the Shenyang Mint), so it is not a new item. Third, I am an oddity as a foreign numismatic author in China. People come by, look at the book and try to absorb that. This is a cultural product and there are many factors in sales that are hard to imagine if you aren't part of the flow there. I am very fortunate to have friends and colleagues who support my effort, but this is not a mainstream book in any and every way.

Contrary to your conclusion, there was a beautiful pin and necklace with a gold panda coin embedded in it: those both sold out. Even so, there is still a lot of room for growth in both collectors and prices of panda coins. That is one of the reasons people collect them.

Is this similar to the 2017 BICE show in which the mint issued an 8 gram silver medal and an 8 gram Cu/Ni medal?  If I remember correctly, there was no indication on the silver medal as to its metal content and you told me the content so that I could make the purchase.

Mark Bonke

Yes, exactly.

If a person attends the coin show in Kowloon in December, how will he or she identify thd 2019 Bice panda medal with the silver core and gilt ring?  Is the metal content written on the surface of the medal or on the edge?  Is the date written on the obverse or reverse?

Mark Bonke

Mark,

I want to double check this. The date is definitely on the mouse side.
