There is a second Panda medal that shares this design. It is made of brass, or gold plated brass, and is seen less frequently than the gold medal itself. Rumor has it that it was a VIP gift. Here's what it looks like:

Yeah, they advertised it as .999 gold, and when I asked them if they were sure, they said, no, instead it was 99.9 gold,  :blink: then hemmed and hawed and finally pulled the item from auction. It would have been a nice curio piece, but not at the price they were asking.

Yes, they had one that turned up in their vault a couple of months ago and mistakenly put it on eBay as the gold medal but then pulled it off. They didn't know what it was. I called the store to see what happened to it but couldn't get an answer.

It's definitely not worth as much as much as the gold medal right now, but as the apparently rarer of the two medals there's no telling how it might be valued in the future. It's an intriguing and mysterious medal. Perhaps someone reading this Forum has some first-hand knowledge of its history.

Panda Halve,
I think that is not a 1995 panda please correct me if i'm wrong. Thanks.

Correct. It is a 1985 as stated. Did you make a mistake or are you fishing for photos of a 1995 : )

Nice coin. I would guess that the actual Mintage was nowhere near that.

Another buy today. Sorry for the bad quality of the pic, but it's difficult to capture all 4 coins. Don't worry, fingerprints are only on the capsules. ;)
