Trend: China coins increasingly shared in Youtube videos
« on: September 27, 2015, 09:23:59 AM »
I've noticed an increasing number of people posting videos of their China coins.  It used to be only clearasvodka posting such videos  http://china-mint.info/forum/index.php?topic=9932.0 , but below are several videos posted just within the last month or so.  Many of these individuals seem to be in networks of general coin or bullion collectors (not China specialists).  The people posting the videos share images of their coins, their views on why they like them, and some background info (sometimes straight from a resource like Peter Anthony's book, with the book visible in the background).  This trend will surely raise awareness of China coins among collectors who don't yet follow them, get some individuals to purchase the resource books, and in general get more people hooked on collecting.  You can see from the comments section of some of these videos that people's eyes are being opened to China coins, and their interest is piqued.  If you are savvy with Youtube, perhaps consider sharing a video of one of your favorite coins to your network?  The broader the base of collectors, the better.

The list of videos below is shared to highlight the recent number.  The variety is interesting.  Not all are high quality in their information or their production value.

You can add mine to the list! I previously posted this or a variant of elsewhere. My first attempt. Haven't had time to do more:

Video of a 3-medal set (copper, silver & brass) depicting Xi Shi holding a pearl. Xi Shi or Shi Yiguang is one of the Four Beauties of Ancient China. She was recruited by her king to use her beauty, charms and subterfuge to bring down another (enemy) king. Imagine the risks and dangers this wonderful woman went through in the service of her king. She and other members of the group are revered in China and celebrated through the medium of artwork such as paintings, carvings, decorative ornaments, sculpture, medals, music, movies and clothing. This medal was released in 2011 by the Shanghai BT Mint, a private China mint. The designer and engraver is reputed to be Lin Feng.

Here's another recent video of some pretty coins posted by an individual who has grown to 377 YouTube subscribers.  In the holiday spirit of supporting those who generously share good photos of their coins and thereby interest others in collecting pandas, I'll share the link here.

I've been doing a few vids on some pandas I've been picking up recently. Here's my most recent video.

You're correct, there are only a handful of panda collectors in the YouTube space.

My pleasure, as I collect these. I will produce videos on them. There's a lot of info I've gained from here, so if you would like a mention feel free to let me know.

I see you have found my 2 oz Piedfort video :) I have quite a few videos on Youtube and more videos of pandas and other Chinese coins listed in a playlist on Youtube which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLB03miYXKVpLAIgeP_Cz9fSBaui5YJ8c7 (I hope it's okay for me to link it here).

I haven't added many lately but will add quite a few in the upcoming weeks and months. Currently looking at improving the production value a bit but have found myself short on time lately, but all in due time!

Thank you Mirkkanen, I appreciate your comment! Hopefully I'll be able to upload quite a few interesting coins in the coming months, just sent off a submission to NGC and hopefully there'll be some good results.

I apologize in advance if posting this appears self-serving, but it is a coin video. I received a fair number of comments about it from China after it appeared last month. The video makers of this piece have a large and loyal following in China (a million views per posting). People tell me that the host is a very astute source of information:
