The silver medal weighs 15 gm, with a mintage of 16,000 and made by Shanghai Mint.

The current value is about $140 in Gem condition.

Very important 1st Bank of China silver medal to own.      Prices in the past few years went above $900 for OMP as the high mark...

Recently i told a friend to bid and buy and he did.     Jan 18th   OMP box    $167.50  Sold  on ebay..
Another one sold recently on ebay  OMP box for over  $250....

Most come out of Great Britain...   There is a past post here titled 1982 Bank of China if you want to search...

Want to add that some of the low price winnings are due to the timing of the auction ending is not a "good date/time" for the seller where there are less buyers' eyes.  Holiday, middle of the night, middle of a workday, etc...

Full disclosure:  I own a few on and off in capsule throughout the decades.

Do they come double sealed?

Yes, the timing may be off due to mostly Great Britain sellers?      Why most B of C medals are in GB is unknown.     There is a good supply now but that could change when these become popular...

Have never seen one in double sealed and have never seen a COA.....

Thank you.
I have read past post you refer to. But the things are changing and the price range mentioned in post was $80-400 (if memory serves me well), so was looking for some up to date information.

I was offered this medal for $130, and the seller had two, so I was thinking of getting both in order to average down postage charges. So average cost goes to $140 poconopenn refered to.

Still no idea if it is a good price for the condition or I should pass the deal.

Condition is up to NGC but you should be able to get a opinion thru photos like all coins/medals.      No fakes that i know of yet.     I think this early year medal has a good upside in the long run.     Higher past prices have brought them out of the woodwork.    For me, they are worth buying and that price is very reasonable.      It makes sense that collectors will want to own the first Bank coin/medal from China.....

I keep forgetting to look at Huang Ruiyong's medal list.      Has this list been upgraded?      Bank of China    Finance - 4 stars
(For example the 1985 Palace Museum silver w/ 200 mint has 4 1/2 stars. )    Is this correct?...

A article or comments from China could bring attention to this Bank of China silver medal.     Today supply is good and prices very cheap but that could change.   I would buy them both.....
