Another new issue, low mintage medal.  Is there a list w/ how many have been issued this year and/or the last 3 years?     I really like all of them but one stands out.    Peter's heart silver panda.    The collectors i know like all the new issue medals too, but they do not buy them.    They are buying or will buy Peter's panda even w/ higher mintage of 980.     Just the view of a small slice of the market........

Thanks to everyone for their interest. Yesterday I took some photos of the Valentine Pandas using a new lighting setup.

The NGC-graded ones will go up on the website as soon as the November China Pricepedia is sent out (soon). The original offer for ungraded Valentine Pandas will end at that time.

I will attend the Hong Kong International Numismatic Fair (HKINF) on December 9 and 10 and bring a small number of Valentine Pandas, if anyone wants to see them there. Orders could be picked up from me there, also.

Best wishes,
Peter Anthony
