Small proof gold pandas
« on: March 03, 2020, 08:38:48 AM »
For you new collectors that usually start w/ small and lower price MCC.   (I have recently chatted w/ some new collectors.)   A few years ago it was stated here that the small proof gold pandas were the most undervalued.   Not anymore.    1986 to 1994 for Proofs.     The rarest are the 1992 and 1994.    1990's proofs are rare.    The best buys/steals are usually from member Arif or recently on ebay 1991 G5Y PF 69 UC      $142.60   Ebay 153832810219.  Some 1986 to 89 are selling for more than this price now.   See Peter's Panda Book for mintages.
For the 1990's PF 69 & 70, NGC has pop around 100 to 200 roughly, not near enough to meet upcoming demand as gold will soon soar again.   
Start bid at low price is very rare now.    Here is what is left on ebay and affordable for the 1990 small proofs
1990 G5Y PF 68  UC      $267.28                  Ebay291844679540
1990 G5Y PF 69 C          -start bid $219-      Ebay 333533351859
1991 G5Y PF 69 UC        $399.99                 Ebay 323776100814
1993 G5Y PF 70             $699                      Ebay 264641593616    not low price but rare 70
There are 2 to 3 others on ebay for much higher prices.   Hopefully more 1990's will be listed at low bid start price & maybe Arif will offer more at his very good prices.      I don't see prices going lower.....

Looking at numbers for new collectors.     It is not easy to determine the rarity of small gold pandas/proofs so here are some NGC pop numbers and Peter's panda book numbers....

1995 G10Y MS 69 SD  Gold Panda 1/10 BU      -current bid $455 w/ 5 days to go-    Ebay 202988494386

High bids probably because the 1/2 oz MS 69 nearly hit the $30,000 mark due to Master Gold Panda set demand in the past.

                                Panda book has  SD 1,850 surv pop     
                                                         LD 2,150 surv pop
1995  NGC 222 total graded pop

Small proof gold panda numbers G10Y  1/10
1986  NGC 339  total pop      Panda book 10,000 Plan mint
1987  NGC 381      "                   "           10,000      "
1988  NGC 237      "                   "             8,000      "
1989  NGC 239      "                   "             8,000      "
1990  NGC 247      "                   "             5,000      "
1991  NGC 186      "                   "             3,500      "
1992  NGC 112      "                   "                                 806 Actual Mint & expensive
1993  NGC 183      "                   "             2,500       "
1994  NGC 107      "                   "                                 854  Actual Mint & expensive

Compare the numbers for the small proofs VS 95 BU SD.    The 95 is getting high prices, why?  Small proofs are undervalued for now but i was told the supply has dried up.....

1995 G50Y MS 69  SD  1/2 oz BU gold panda    $11,999.99   SOLD    Ebay 153491941546

1995 1/2 SD  NGC 217 total pop   Panda book 1,300 surv pop
1995 1/2 LD  NGC  94  total pop         "              450 surv pop

This is the 1/2 oz i just mentioned for Master Gold Panda sets.    Compare numbers.   If this 1/2 oz BU sees high demand & prices, will other gold pandas of similar number see high prices?    You new collectors can decide...

Off topic.   For you Chinese citizens i am a bit confused....

I read many articles that the Chinese government and others say they are absolute atheists.    No belief in a spiritual power.  Worship people like N Korea...

On the other hand China has the Temple of Heaven, many Gods & Hell notes for funerals, etc...      This means China has a long history of believing in spiritual powers.

What is the truth?.....
