Oh dear.  My pulse rate increased when I removed this from the packaging.   After five years of collecting G1/2, I finally have a 1998.  I was not willing to pay the big bucks before, but a few extra semi-keys I had purchased have done well, so I traded.  Time will tell if it was a good "investment," but the collector in me is feeling good right now.  1982-2007 g1/2 complete date set, with a good number of varieties.  I'll try to take a photo later.

Congrats, Birdman! That's a great accomplishment, and one I envy very much.

If you have any multiples you want to get rid of, let me know :)

The 1998 1/2oz Gold Panda Coin is a very BIG  :thumbup: DEAL!

I shiver to think of the cash equivalent of your transaction.  N8

The time it took for you to acquire this coin gives me hope of future possibilities.

Congratulations!  N31

I'll share this, as it will be a long time before I reach a milestone of similar significance.   N38 

I hesitate to calculate the time I spent researching the coins, finding examples that were priced favorably, negotiating, etc.  I'll just take this photo and go home and pour a glass of wine  N47

Great collection.  What was your personal best experience in getting one of these coins?  I love to here stories of the journey. 

So many stories.   The first one to come to mind was a 2003 G1/2 MS70.  Within my first 6 months of collecting Chinese coins, I bought it OMP for not much over spot price and sent it in for grading.  It was the first 2003 G1/2 MS70 graded.  That was an intriguing eye-opener, and a bit of an adrenaline rush.  Here is my post as a newbie to the forum. 

http://china-mint.info/forum/index.php?topic=3541.msg16685#msg16685

After five years, there are still only five 2003 G1/2 MS70.  I have two at the moment.  Perhaps there is a special affection given my early experience.
