Champion Hong Kong Auction 12
« on: December 04, 2011, 07:56:52 PM »
I have been reading posts about the Champion Hong Kong auction and just wanted to give my two cents. For the coins I follow, the cultural coins, they seem to have done pretty well. I am extremely impressed with the Soong Ching Ling set.

CHINA 1993 100th Ann Soong Ching Ling Gold Proof
estimated: 5000-7000
sold: $14,950

CHINA 1991 80th Ann Revolution Gold and Silver
estimated: 10000-20000
sold: $25,300

CHINA 1991 80th Ann of 1911 Revolution
estimated: 13000-14000
sold: $27,600

CHINA 1993 Goddess of Mercy 1500 Yuan Gold Proof
estimated: 200000-400000
sold: $575,000  

CHINA 1981 70th Anniversary of 1911 Revolution
estimated: 8000-16000
sold: $18,4000

CHINA 1979 30th Ann People's Republic Gold Set
estimated: 4000-6000
Sold: $6,325

CHINA 1994 Kuan Yin Silver Proof
estimated 800-1600
sold: $1380
(excellent price for who ever got this, although condition may have been an issue here)


I was following the Soong Ching Ling 1993 set of two coins (gold and silver) but the link no longer points to it.

Does anyone have any details what happened to that set and also the 1991 80th Hai revolution 2 coin set (gold and silver). Were they removed from the auctions? Did they sell?
Their starting prices were very reasonable and wanted a crack at it but the link no longer worked. I don't think they were double sealed and condition seemed questionable from the pictures.

Thanks

My apologies, please desreguard my post. I got confused from the website's homepage auction arrangement. I clicked on details for auction 12 thinking it was auction 16.
Does anyone have any info on if the Soong Ching Ling set and the 1991 Hai revolution sets sold?
When I wanted to possibly put a bid on, the link was not working.

sincerely,
exchange

One thing you can try is to make your post as a reply for the auction you're talking about. It also makes it much easier to follow the discussion when everything is in one place.

I'm wondering if anyone here has previously completed auction transactions with Champion? The reason I ask is that after winning two lots in this most recent auction, I inquired as to payment options. I recieved a subsequent e-mail requesting payment via bank wire transfer to a location in Hong Kong, with no other options given. Although I'm 95% sure this is legit, I just wanted to see if anyone has had similar experiences with this auction house, and whether this is their usual modus operandi. Thanks.

No, their usual procedure is to do nothing and not respond to email requests. I won a lot at a previous auction about a year ago and never could get them to send an invoice. Same with this auction. I got a friend of mine in Hong Kong to call them and they finally emailed an invoice. He is going to pay them in cash and pick up the coins. I don't trust Champions efficiency at mailing things.

I doubt that I will be buying from them again.

In answer to your concern though, yes, the email was legit. That's how they do business.

I emailed Champion about the auction invoices and was told that the invoices for foreign customers were mailed out this week. Hopefully, all successful bidders will receive their invoices soon.
