If I remember right, an originally sealed 1999 1 oz. silver Large Date with Serif passed through eBay in February for $175. That was a good deal for somebody. I was kind of surprised when I spotted it after the auction was over.

Best wishes,
Peter Anthony

Maybe someone could verify this but I believe the "Realized" prices on the Champion Auction site do include the 18% fee.  I say that because in looking at the prices some have some odd numbers like $ 2,530.00, and there are other examples but with the even bid increments it looks to me like the fee has been included in the prices.  I would also guess that Champion wants to publish the higher prices.

@KonaJim

The realized prices on the Champion homepage have included fee (15% or 18%,... depends on bidding type). The prices on Liveauctioneers are without fee.
Here is an example.

How much does Champion Auction charge the seller?  Then, we could look at the Champion results and determine the actual amount paid to the seller, after subtracting the fees paid by the buyer (15-18%) and the seller (  %).  Mark Bonke

Hong Kong: Trolling for whales !    :001_tongue: I wish him luck, as that should raise the value of the PF68 ones I have.  :biggrin:
 For the SF 88, yeah, Jon has been trying to sell that one for a while. Started out at mid threes, he countered an offer of mine to 3600, but that was ages ago on the same coin, so offer him that and see what he says !  Some sellers have fantasy ideas of worth, he way overprices but at least he entertains offers.

Personally, I like the design of 88 SF better. What a design - cast in full 1 oz Gold, huge eye appeal and brilliant luster. Feels more connected to he Dragon theme than the HK expo. HK expo has more boxy design, but it has a Panda too. The brain will say buy the HK for its low mintage. Heart will say buy SF for its beautiful flow.

Agreed.  That 88 SF Dragon is one of the top, if not THE top, dragon coin for eye appeal. I love the dots around the dragon- unique.  Gorgeous.  And a relative low Mintage at 1,500. A must have, at a reasonable price.  But you also need the Hong Kong for the rarity. So gotta have both!  :thumbup:

Nice coin too, that Hong Kong. The whole Hong Kong series is great, gold and silver. I hope he catches a whale

For purposes of comparison, a popular panda 1988 ANA 1oz medal PF 69 with lower Mintage of 1000 recently went for $3,500, and raw for $3,675, so that is ballpark value I believe, not $9,800 until proven otherwise.

These both coins are in different category than 88 ANA, because these are also Dragon medals. I think they will hold their value at least through 2012 since it is a dragon year. I will not be surprised if SF medal goes beyond 10,000 for some time. To think of it, the top 3 Dragon coins in terms of mintage are: (excluding Platinum, 1 oz or below)

1988 HK - 500 mintage
1988 SF - 1500 mintage
2000 Flower shape - 2300 mintage

So is there any one who has all 3 in top grade?  :thumbup:

1984 NGCMS69 Gold 1/2 Sells for sub-$900 despite being on badon's list with the following recommendation:
"$750 auction starting price. You don't see these very often..."

While a 1/2 gold 1984  panda isn't terribly rare badon is right that you don't see this coin very often... in MS69 grade.
Someone besides me got a good buy on this one:  :001_cool:
