NGC Presents: The Songs of Summer

"Probably the most popular coin released for the 2017 35th Anniversary of the Panda coin series was the bimetallic gold and silver coin. It was designed by Zhu Xihua and struck at the Shenzhen Guobao Mint. The story goes that Mr. Zhu originally submitted two designs to China Gold Coin Inc. He expected them to choose his favored design, but instead...”

“For the time being, we can enjoy the 500 “Garden of Life” sets that were struck in antiqued brass. They are 80mm in diameter and weigh approximately 370 grams apiece. They are not the cheapest medals around – the retail price of a set is around $400 USD. Considered as art, though, they are a bargain, something to sing about – and a less expensive 45mm set also exists.”

I happened to own 2015 issued 45 mm “Garden of Life” set.

The Panda medal is packaged together with the book and should be available at the next coin show in Hong Kong. There was no plan to offer it for sale as a single item.

If you were asking about the Garden of Life medals there are still some for sale in Shenyang as well as other places in China.

Very nice. I like the box design, too. Each of the 80mm medals has its own box.

The shipping cost to US will be very expensive.

The COAs to my set say 80mm diameter. Is there a 90mm set? The representatives at the mint only mentioned two sizes: 45mm and 80mm.

The Jibi.net story shows different packaging than what the Shenyang Mint itself sells. It also lists them as 80mm diameter. Thanks for that link.

Each medal weighs around 380 grams, so shipping all five would be around 2 kg + boxes.

Sorry, my mistake. It is 80mm. In general, large copper medals are 90mm in diameter.
