Congratulation! Very tough set to have.

Your set is not only all 69, but also in old NGC and PCGS holders (except 1997 1/20 oz), not recently graded coins from China, which IMO, have a lower grading standard by both companies.

Yes, Poconopenn, you r right. It took me 6 years to finish this set. And got the 1997 1/20th from yjzx recently. Most key dates were submitted to grade by myself.

I am wondering should I do crossover from PCGS to NGC so that I have same holder the whole set? What is your suggestion?

I think the pcgs and ngc combination is actually cool especially considering they are older holders.  Are you going to build the rest of the platinum set or any other set for that matter?  Why did you decide to build this Platinum set?  Thank you for sharing.  Once again amazing!

Few knowledgeable sellers inside China list their coins as US graded (vs. China graded) and charge extra premium. Sometimes, they also charge more for coins in the older holders. IMO, pre-2013 graded coin should have extra premium, since the grading standard, IMO, was lower after 2012 by both companies.

PCGS did not aggressively promote its services inside China until 2012, two years later than NGC. Since then, PCGS has been in partnership with jibi.net and Coin001.com (two most popular websites for MCC collectors inside China) and has gained some market share inside China for grading services. PCGS also has been selected as grading company for coins listed in some Coin Exchange Funds. It is very hard to predict if NGC or PCGS will be the preferable grading company for MCC in the future. IMO, the crossover of PCGS holder to NGC only be done if you want to have a NGC registered set now.

Why this set? It is because of my wife. In a Chinese family, wife has final call for anything cost more than 2k. When I asked her which set to go, she pointed to this set said smaller would be cheaper!   N4 Anyway, I made it.
Will I move on to another set? the answer is yes.  Platinum ancient science and discovery set will be definitely challenging and it is too expensive, don't know whether it is a good choice in term of long term investment. Lunar zodiac set is expensive too but not that much of fun when you can just buy all 12 pieces at once if you have deep pocket. Unicorn set has only 5 pieces,too little to make an array.  N20
I need some suggestion on which platinum set to choose. I need you two cents.  N39

I would complete the larger size panda platinum set next, 1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz from 1987-1990.

I would avoid unicorns series, very few collectors for those coins.

The I&D series is very nice and relatively cheap compared to peak prices.  Those were my favorite pt coins, but I had to sell when prices when parabolic. Now if I can find one 20% below market I will buy it and hold it for 5-10 years.
