Digging Norway,
You do not know what coins you're buying ? What is the area of your strength ?

I'msorry I dont understand your question. I pay spotprice for the coins (metal-price) si when I see a chinese coin with a kid and fish from 1997 which looks nice I but it. Is that a strength?

I was asking about the strength of your collection or what do you collect the most ? For example, some people may specialised in collecting Pandas only and some may collect lunar coins.

OK... I started collecting different bullion coins at first, all kinds of things: silver eagles, philharmonics, different canadian mint etc... then I stumbled across a giant 1kg panda that I liked very much... so I started collecting pandas as I liked their design. Ten I stumbled across some other low mintage silver modern coins, since I got them cheap I bought them. Then I started researching the coins, this fourm and other sites and got hooked...

Now I collect pandas, gold and silver, and modern silver coins... I have almost completed the 1995 and 1997 traditional culture series. I only miss one coin. I have about half of the historical figueres series, I have some of the unearthed artifacts, some olympic series..

basically I buy up all the modern chinese coins with low mintage I can get my hands on (when I get good offers) and my next step is to send them in to NCS/NGC as these are "European Coins" and they are "bashed by badon" ;) It will be exciting to see what grade they will get.. I am kind of hoping that these silver coins from the 80s and 90s will become popular again and due to their low mintage they will becom interesting collectables.. in addition they are very beautiful coins.. Not many people collect chinese coins in Norway so one can get some bargains out there.. but some of the coins are probably not handled properly... so the grading will be exciting..

"Auspicious Matters" series


Thanks, I found that too one the internet when I got some time, but I really didnt find any good site describing the whole series, the lenght, varieties and mintages.. personally I dont like the colorized coins, but since badon said that children was popular in China and I only paid 20USD for it I got it :)

31.3 grams
Just picked up this one with a couple others.
Paid 150 for it.  There are the milk spots that can be seen.
The marks are on the capsule.
I was thinking about returning it.  Thoughts

I see no point in spending money on impaired examples of coins that can be found and bought in original condition. I make exceptions for coins that are truly rare or have study value.
