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.

That would be very nice...I will definitely be interested.

Am interested to get on the "Member List" to buy.  What do we need to do?

Well they're at least listed on pandaamerica's website, not for sale yet. Rang them and the girl on the phone said maybe the end of this month, no price yet or preordering as they don't know how much they'll be.

Anyone use any other distributors that would ship to Australia?

I think Pandora was the first to notice them being out:

Every one of the flower/scallop dragons sold within 20 minutes.

I played the contrarian and mostly bought 1990 dragon & phoenix coins for peanuts. They're still cheap at $235 for a 69 in the little silver version. The 2012 dragons could easily quadruple in price, and I'm betting the next sector rotation once the lunar dragon craze settles will be into the dragon & phoenix coins.

Since the 2012 lunars are probably going to be sold out before 2012 even arrives, people might turn to the dragon & phoenix earlier than they would otherwise, simply because there are no other dragons available.

I couldn't believe when I first came to know...but they were there on eBay! I posted on this forum and LBC both.

I think the silver fan and scallop are cheap.
All the gold is so expensive
So is the silver round, with that high mintage!

With that said I bought
1 silver fan
1 silver scallop
1 gold & silver round set (my wonderful girlfriend is going to pay half for this set)

I plan on buying at least 2 more scallops

Also the pictures of the actual coins look much nicer than the
pictures on the china mint website.

I have dragon fever!  I have bought over 30 dragon coins in the last month.
