Here is another "worthless" medal that i post about usually on badon's site.    Of course i am in the medal camp due to low mintage and unknown info on them.    Not all consider medals worthless as there are many medal collectors and that group is growing...

1971  Mao  "learn"   silver       bids are over $400 now                  Ebay 362311875028....private bidders,  Chinese bidders?...
 


I was trying to get some info on the medal here, but nobody responded, so I have just listed it on ebay as it is....
Do you have any information on it, please?

Ma Gu Xian is Brass?

1971 Mao i think its just a european medal about the 925 silver.

That is the only image I could find.
If it was European medal, I think there would be quite a few elsewhere, it is first time that I was not able to gather any info, and I am collecting mailny bread jetons, so know that not all info is online.

All of Aragog's listing for circulating proof sets are doing very well: 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/China-KMS-Mint-coin-set-1995-1-fen-1-Yuan-Circulation-coins-PROOF/362311811806?hash=item545b7782de:g:W40AAOSwh5ha7XHv


I am positively surprised. If I remember well, I sold 2000 PROOF sets cheaper than some of PROOF sets now. I think only few items sold cheaper than I bought. And I did a lot of purchases at top in 2011.
There are not enough offers for real numis items from PRC

Congrats...your sets did very well.

Were buyers from China, US, or Germany? 

I started buying these sets several years ago from Germany since they were just not available in US.  With only 10k minted (or 20k I forget) they should do well since the coin collector base in China is much larger than for MCC.

None of sets was sold to PRC this time, despite lots of offers off ebay. All sets and other Chinese coins go to US, Germany and Australia, including big dealers.
And a few years back, most of sets were sold to China mainland or Hong Kong.
