Does anyone know how much is the issue price for the fan and flower shaped? Does the issue price differ yearly? 2003 goat was for US$55. I've got dealer offering me US$68 (fan) and US$82 (flower). Would like to find out more before buying. Thanks.

Unfortunately, prices offered to me from Chian and Germany are quite high :(:
flower---$116
fan------$82

First prices on e*b*a*y for the fan were around $83

The following is current price inside China:

1 oz silver round: $105
1 oz silver fan: $60
1 oz silver flower: $75

The following link is for a fake set of 2010 colored silver and gold tiger. At least this seller states that the material of the coin is made with 50% silver alloy and gold plated. The counterfeiting factory in China must work overtime.

So I guess the official issue price is still about $55?

By the way, can you elaborate the term 'inside China'? Is it as in buying from dealer shops or direct from China Gold Corp?

The price is based on the average of two reputable dealers in Shanghai.
