1/2oz are so hot :P

This is a small date.  NGC misgraded this coin as large date.

Problem is the e_coins uses stock photos. So, the hopeful buyer may get a nasty surprise :-)

I have noticed that some sellers that use stock photos will deliberately choose a mislabeled coin as their stock photo. It is against eBay rules to use stock photos, if I remember correctly.

Why is it there seems to be no information on the 1996 Beijing International Coin Expo 1/2 oz coin on CC or Pricepedia?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/China-1996-Beijing-Coin-Expo-Silver-Medal-NGC-PF69-/160796348899?pt=US_World_Coins&hash=item25703591e3

According to this information this was the first Beijing Expo (1/2 oz) produced.

Does anyone have any idea what current markey valuation might be for these 1/2 oz coins?

It's a very nice medal, but it's not a Panda coin (there is one for that same show) and hasn't been a high priority item to add to the Pricepedia. Pricepedia tries to focus on the most popular coins and medals, but I'll add anything that catches my interest, too. For instance, check out the new column on Chinese paper money by Adam Biagi of Pacifica Tading Co. in the July issue (which gets sent out later today).

Best wishes,

Thank you Peter, the more I know the more I find out how little I know.  ;)
A couple of points of interest on this coin.
Total NGC Graded: 7... 2/67, 2/68 & 3/69 with a mintage limit of 9600.
I wonder how many are really remaining?

Current NGC population numbers (six months later) (68/69/70/total):
1993    33/154/8/212 --> 36/163/11/228 --> 44/214/23/303
1994    49/117/5/192 --> 52/124/5/203 --> 70/156/10/262
1995    10/54/1/71   --> unchanged --> unchanged
1995sd 36/31/0/94    --> 54/38/0/125 --> 108/80/0/227
1995ld 32/68/1/162   --> 36/82/2/180 --> 70/168/7/323
1996    98/187/1/340 --> 99/192/1/346 --> 124/217/1/405
1997    68/252/0/333 --> 74/263/0/352 --> 84/314/0/415
1998    36/68/0/111  --> 42/76/0/127 --> 61/115/1/192
Pretty large increase in submissions overall. 1998 now officially has least submissions. MS69 1995sd still highest grade rarity.

Just got back 12 I sent in for grading. Some 1996s and 1997 HK Expo, tough grades. The 1996 in particular did not grade well. All were in OMP from an intact mint sheet, so I was a bit bummed. But, the good news is I have been getting a lot more interest in the 1/2 oz. pandas and have sold a good portion of the ones I bought to flip.

The 96 Beijing International Expo 1/2 oz is new and has low NGC numbers like you stated.  One is pictured on the CC.  I doubt it has been researched yet as it is not popular but time will tell.........

So it is the first 1/2 oz silver Beijing International Expo coin.  That and low planned mintage of 9600 has got to be a plus.  Wonder what actual mintage is?  Does Mr Ge have it in his new book?  I call it the Nike coin for obvious reasons.  Nice MCC to own and maybe a good one to buy........
