1999 LD Serif 1 1/2 oz Gold Panda
« on: October 09, 2016, 03:24:55 PM »
Hello again everyone.  I have had such great responses lately on prior posts that I hope to continue to be able to post more and more new topics in the future.  This post is about a 1999 large date serif 1 1/2 oz gold panda.  the piece I have is raw and in just a flip, NOT sealed in the original plastic.  To me, it is spotless and perfect.

In December of 2015 I was offered $1900 for the piece by a reputable dealer.  At that time the NGC price guide showed an MS68 at $2200, and MS69 at $2600, and an MS70 at $4800.  At the time I felt the offer was low for the variety, so I've held onto it.  At that time the same dealer mentioned above only offered $15 extra for the serif 1 variety over the plain 1 variety.

Today, that same dealer is offering is offering $2700 for any 1999 1/2 oz gold panda.  The NGC price guide today shows the LD serif 1 variety of the 1999 1/2 gold panda in MS68 at $3350, MS69 at $4200, and MS70 at $6100.

Obviously, the price on the 1999 1/2 oz gold pandas has went up in the last year.  The questions I have about this piece revolve around not only the value of this piece, but also the rarity, interest, and knowledge of it.  So, I have the following questions:

1.  I understand that the listed mintage of 1999 1/2 gold pandas is given as 12,482.  Does anyone have any idea how many of those are the large date serif 1 type?

2.  Does anyone have any information on what the actual value of a piece like this may be?  I know it is difficult to generate a price when a piece like this is raw, which is why I need to send it in for grading.

3.  Is there much of an interest in the gold panda varieties area right now?  Just from what I see on NGC's price guide, there seems to be a strong difference on the "more difficult" varieties.

Sorry that I don't have a picture posted on here of the coin, but I am not where I can get to it for another day or two.  As always, thank you all for your time and your responses on this and all posts.

Thank You.

In case anyone needs a quick refresher of what this piece is, here are a couple pictures.  These are NOT pictures of my coin, they are pictures from the NGC website.
