My first modern coin?
« on: June 06, 2011, 02:01:47 PM »
Hello, I stumbled upon a 5oz 30th anniversary of the autonomous region of Xinjiang available for about $1400USD. It's slabbed, PF62 by NGC. However, I had a look at the population: 16 coins have been graded, and PF62 is the lowest grade recorded. Do you think it's still worth it, or should I wait to find a PF69? Alternatively, it's available raw on eBay, from the seller pisceslunar, for the whopping sum of $4000USD. I'd be grateful if savvy modern coin collectors could give me a "scale" of what it's worth in various conditions :)

Alternatively, if you have this coin (actually I would even prefer the 10 yuan 1oz coin, I prefer coins with denomination to medals) for sale, I'd be interested as well :)

Thanks... Both the PF62 and the raw from pisceslunar are quite overpriced it seems. Anyway, if anybody here wants to sell a 10 yuan, I could drop a nice chunk of cash in exchange.

I recommend that you make a "buying" post here:
