That was my first thought at the first glance. Quite ugly.

The more I look at it, more I hate it. If someone showed me out of context, I would have instantly concluded this is a cheap fake. :-P

Hehehe, I agree! I wonder how many varieties and die breaks will occur???? Stick your money into solid fundamentals in MCCs.

Hi Guys -

Yes, I can confirm there will be a Panda Commemorative for the Philadelphia ANA World's Fair of Money Show.  The China Mint is making a 1-oz Silver (mintage 10,000 pcs), 5-oz Silver (mintage 2,500 pcs), & 5-oz Gold (mintage 99 pcs).

Also that's not the final image of the Panda Commemorative.  It's just artwork that we got from China so that we could start promoting it.

Here's the promo piece I originally put together but wasn't approved for use.  It has a little bit more info (diameter) for those interested:

Yeah, I'd say this medal is a completely different beast, than the SCF.

This one is a total, government approved, official, ANA show medal. :thumbup:

Not a coin with a Panda on one side,
and a 100%, capitalistic, hotel/casino ad on the other.

The bamboo looks out of sorts,
because there's nothing in the fields,
other than the bruins.

They're missing some rocks, or tufts of grass.
Just having the bears on open silver fields,
is probably why others dislike the Pandas.

We're not used to them that way.

And another thing I was thinking,
for years, when reading coin descriptions,
from B&M dealers, and  online sellers,
we grew accustomed, to seeing them described as,
MOM, and baby!

Well if you enlarge these pics on these posters,
maybe some of you will see what I see,
PaPa and baby!
Not ugly, just more masculine than we're used to.

Me?
I'm kinda liking it, the more I look at it.

I'm just wondering if we could get an honest report
on the actual minting process.
You know, like # of dies used maybe?

I sure hope this official medal,
doesn't have all the drama attached with it,
like we saw on those SCF's.
Are there any 2nd's on that?

Think I'll go for one of the 1oz. Ag's.

But only if, all four sides,
of the pouch, are sealed, of course! :001_cool:

Just a view, from the wyldkatt's ledge, folks.
