Congrats Golden Lord,

Do you have any idea on the medals value?

I am sending my 2003 Goat and 2004 Monkey off to NCD this week.

Thanks

The fair current value (auction @ ebay) for the Panda Premium Set Medals should be for OMP/PFUC69:

1 Oz AG Lunar Series 2003 - Goat Colorized: 150 Dollars
1 Oz AG Lunar Series 2004 - Monkey Colorized: 200 Dollars
1 Oz AG Lunar Series 2005 - Rooster Colorized: 150 Dollars
1/10 Oz AU Lunar Series 2005 - Rooster Hologram: 300 Dollars
1 Oz AG Lunar Series 2006 - Dog Colorized: 200 Dollars
1 Oz AG Lunar Series 2007 - Pig: Not released
1 Oz AG Lunar Series 2008 - Rat Colorized & Gold Gilded (Mintage each 500): 150 Dollars
1 Oz AG Lunar Series 2009 - Ox Gold Gilded: 150 Dollars
1 Oz AG Lunar Series 2010 - Tiger Gold Gilded: 200 Dollars
1 Oz AG Lunar Series 2011 - Rabbit Gold Gilded with Ruby: 200 Dollars
1 Oz AG Lunar Series 2012 - Dragon Gold Gilded with Pearl: 200 Dollars

Some medals are sold for more Money, but i think the Prices above are currently ok.
But the medals are very rare and are quick sold out for this Price..
I search some over months, but not one Piece.

Equally or more important is their value as Collector pieces given that they were originally minted for use as part of Elite Yearly Panda sets. They become very useful if you are reverse engineering such sets. You can even get a COA (either for the elite set or just the yearly fractionals set) off eBay to complete your buildout!   N38

http://www.ebay.com/itm/China-2008-Mint-Medal-Lunar-Rat-UC-69-POP4-/331894219745?hash=item4d466fe3e1:g:visAAOSwRQlXcsDn

A PFUC69 Rat 2008 was sold for 300$. Price goes stronger.

Ive send last time in the first Lunar Dog 2006. Its now avaiable to grade.

And I received a package with the Gold 2005 1/10 from Heritage. There should be 1k Pieces, but never see.

Just back from NCS/NGC. My interest in these medals was initially for use in replicating the configuration of prestige gold panda sets of the past. Now that I am looking at these five medals I am beginning to wonder if to collect them as a standalone set of colored lunar medals because they look good together!

Nice Collection :)

But NGC did an error, your rat is not colorized, its Gold plated, but listed as Colorized. Both versions have a mintage of 500 pieces.

Gold = Yellow = Color = ?Colorized!  :001_unsure:

Given NGC's prior history of refusal to grade these medals I am happy with whatever they call it, but great observation and comment. Thanks.

Nice start KOT.  I didn't realize anyone was collecting these as graded coins, NGC only recently started grading these.  I submitted a few to make a set for myself, didn't realize why I didn't have 2007, thanks GoldenLord for the info. 

I have extra Monkey ($300) and Rat gilt ($175) I would be willing to trade for 2008-2010 colorized NGC PF69 or sell.

KOT NGC will fix the label on your 2008 for free, just send it in as mechanical error.
