What to do with my 1 oz gold pandas
« on: May 28, 2017, 12:34:51 AM »
I was going through my gold stack the other day and noticed that I have 1 2003 frosted bamboo, 2007 and 2014 1 oz gold panda in OMP.  Looking on ebay at prices not sure if these are potential winners or not.  Too bad the 2003 wasn't a half ounce :-(.  I was surprised to see that on occassion the 2014 goes for more than the others.  I do think it is a fluke.  So I don't need the cash but am thinking about what to do with them.  I might keep them, but I was toying with the idea of selling them and get a graded semi key half or getting some of the older silver pandas graded.  Too bad I couldn't find the 1934 S peace dollar in mint state than I'd sell them. 
I thought it would be fun to ask and see what some of you thought about those dates.  I think the 2014 is just a bullion coin, but the other two might have potential if master sets ever get going again.

If I were you, I would hold the older dates for now but look to sell or trade the 2014 coin. If you will be selling on eBay, wait for a promotion where buyers and sellers can each earn 8% or 10% on eBay bucks, or look to sell offline. Local coin shops will probably treat the coin as bullion, so that isn't your best bet.

You could always use the coins as trade bait. Lately,.it seems that 1 oz coins in 69 grades are selling for 10-15% more than In recent years. A coin I sold for $1500ish lat year now sells for about $1750-$1800 in China.

I'll have to look for the ebay bucks promotion and let the 2014 go.  I do like the design of the 2007 and I think the 2003 has potential if things get hot again.  Too bad their wasn't a few collectors in my neck of the woods I'd see what I could do with trades.  I need to do some research and see what I can get out of it and what I could flip it for.
