I'm not a big fan of the new design. I'm interesting in seeing what happens to the prices of past Dragon related coins though.

The initial price for the 2012 Dragon coins will be soon available here (Retail price of Chinese precious commemorative coins)

There are also an 'electronic catalog' and other stuff. Very interesting.

Thanks for the link. The new designs are very good, fit well with the series and will prove very popular  :thumbup:

I would think that a less than stunning designed 2012 dragon will make the classics dragons even more valuable.

A whole new level. Medals, bullion art "sticks", etc.

The bullion Medal actually have a much more sexy design than the coin (12 KG Silver Coin). IMO.

Apmex

From what I hear they should be out by the end of the month.
Don't expect the prices to be very good though.

The older issues are the better buy as an investor.

As a collector I will be buying them though.

If anyone of you is interested in this, I can see how much I will pay for them directly to the distributor in HK. It should be cheaper for me here...... Or I can post the prices if I do get to buy them at the "member" price.

I thought it's quite a let-down to have all the same dragon design for different shapes, in particular the flower shaped. The obverse used to be the animal instead of the national symbol so now it seems the series design is broken.
