I just noticed that there's only 7 of scallop coins available, and the mintage is only 60,000. Other mints have already sold out, and it's not even 2012 yet. I will not be surprised to see these sell out within a few weeks.

Yeah, looks like we posted at almost the same time :) I can't believe they all sold so fast.

It is very much possible that these coins listed by Xu Hong are among first from the mint and probably among best struck!

I called Panda America, and William told me they will most probably begin selling them in the week after thanksgiving.

No word on the prices yet...he just told me they will be "pricey"!  ;)

...and he will definitely announce them on the forum.

I have a feeling that  the dragons are gonna go a bit crazy real fast.  I hope it brings some additional attention to the previous dragon dates.

PandaAmerica is being smart. They want to see how the market reacts to them once they're sold out. I bet PandaAmerica will be one of the few that still has them in stock, at a higher price of course :)

The 2000 2/3 oz silver flower dragons already look pretty cheap at $1500 to $2000. It's about 10 times rarer. If the 2012 dragons start pushing upward in price, it will be interesting to see what the 2000 dragons do.

I think it's already happening before our eyes. I still can't believe they sold so fast. That was only about 20 minutes.

There are still 3 fan-shaped dragons available..

I am sure Xu Hong will list more flowers tonight, but probably at higher price.
