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.

Sorry guys this item was not correctly described by our listing person as he only started working for us recently.  This indeed is a brass piece given away by the mint officials.  So we pulled this as soon as we reliazed the mistake.

Buy the book before the coin

Bought my very first modern chinese coin today. A UNEP 5 yuan coin from 1992 for $316 USD. It looks like a problem free coin from the pictures, hope I did a good deal :)

I noticed that selling for good money. It's a beautiful coin, and I think coins with a female theme have been getting some attention lately.

Yeah, I like these Xinjiang themed coins, their design is really beautiful. I'm going to buy a 30th year anniversary of the Xinjiang SAR soon as well.

My newest coins.  1989 8g Gold Year of the Snake, 1989 15gm Silver Year of the Snake, 1985 15gm Silver Year of the Ox, and 1986 15gm Silver Year of the Tiger.  All with COAs. I believe I might have over paid a bit, but I'm hoping that these years are under valued a bit.  They have relatively low mint counts.  I wonder how many did not sale out of the proposed mint of 15,000 for the Ag tiger and Ag snake and 10,000 for the Ag Ox. Only 7,500 reported mint for the 8g snake.  Now I have the tough decision of to slab or not to slab.  I might be getting the original boxes for a few of them, if the guy can find them in his house.  I have the Panda Pricepedia numbers on these, but what do you all think would be a fair price for these four coins with COAs?

Very nice start on the lunars.

These are hard to get in high grades, partly because most of them were stored or handled very poorly, like the tiger you have. The tiger is sliding around in a loose holder, and that is damaging the coin (the invisible dust inside acts like sandpaper).

Although they're all low-mintage, they're only rare in high grades. Low grades are pretty easy to get because they circulate.

You want high grades, if you care about the investment potential of your coins. That means you should slab all of them, and keep the ones that score the best. Remember to send them to NCS instead of directly to NGC.

They are definitely undervalued, even in low grades. I think an average early silver lunar has 1/300th the mintage of this year's 2011 silver panda.

I bought this coin today, it was kind of expensive (for me) I gave 90USD for it  :ohmy:
But I just wanted it so bad. Is so cool to see how China tries to depict a cross country skier with the small traditional chinese "hut" (?) in the background, and the anatomy of the skier is also a bit strange... way to muscular, looks more like a downhill skill with that thorax and huge biceps.

This coin was made for the Winter Olympics in my country, Lillehammer 1994, and minted in 1992. Regarding the mintage there seems to be some different numbers out there. The Krause catalog says it is only 7500 minted, but accoring to
modernchinacoins.com the mintage was 30.000

China has never really been a great winter olympics participant, they have participated in 9 games, the first being in 1980 in Lake Placid. They have 9 gold medals, 18 silvers and 17 bronze medals. Their best sport is skating and curling.

However, if the mintage turnes out to be 7500 and someone wants to complete the olympic series this coin can get scarce.
The coins sent in to ngc are few, with: 7 coins graded 68 and 5 coins graded 69.

I think my coin need conservation, it has some haze around the edges... I use a microscope with blue light to check the coins now, as I have not yet solved my "sending in for grading problem".

For those who are interested in games theme coin.  Take a look at these bad boys that are on their way back from NCS and NGC with a 1,000 mintage each.
