In addition  to 26 listings mentioned above, seller "marylq1987" also listed 1996 1 oz gold unicorn (pictures show the fake coin is 0.5 oz), a multiple listing with more than 10 available.

Pictures of this fake 0.5 oz gold unicorn are attached herein for future reference. Both 1 in 100 yuan and in 1996 are different from the genuine coin.

Seller "marylq1987" just revised many bead items, which will be ended in about 12 hours, into gold panda listings, therefore the duration of listing is actually less than 24 hours, most likely 12 hours. The current active listings are 29 gold pandas.

The completed listings (20 gold pandas):

That's a reportable ebay policy violation, to substantially change listings like that.

Seller "marylq1987" changed ID to "gead158" and swatched to "private" feedback.

http://contact.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ReturnUserIdHistory&requested=gead158

http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=gead158&&iid=270649912652&sspagename=VIP:feedback&ftab=FeedbackAsSeller

This is a standard operation procedure for eBay scammers.

If anybody wonders why the photo of the 2000 is of a fake coin, here are some hints:

1. The silver plating is so thin it allows the less reflective base metal to show through in places
2. The fur detail is wrong
3. The shape of the Temple is off
4. The clincher; the carpet on the Temple steps has a pattern on it. This detail did not appear on 1 oz. silver Pandas until 2002

The verdict is in; guilty as charged.

Best wishes,

That seller sells a variety of different coins. Do you think maybe he is unaware that his panda coins are fake? Has anybody sent him a message to tell him, just in case he's an unaware victim?

Yes, I have the same feeling that he's unaware that he is selling fakes. Cos he does have some real coins for sale.

Many scammers mix fake and genuine coins in the listings to avoid the detection. I do not know if this is the case. They are three PCGS slabbed Morgan dollars listed by this seller also questionable. IMO. they are fake coin in fake slab and known to be produced in China. The seller has responded to my emails and indicating those coins are consignment items and will discuss with the owner about those coins. In fact, the seller has admitted those panda coins are underweight. The last email was received six hours ago. Up to now those listings are still active.

Does he know that this thread is making him famous? Might want to point out to him that his reputation is at stake.

Real seller (hallenbeckcoins):  http://cgi.ebay.com/1985-China-1-oz-Proof-Silver-Panda-Coin-Box-/230540440512?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35ad47f3c0

Notice the fake seller took the pictures and the listing description word for word from the real seller.

The seller, RainbowBill, has emailed that he will do the right thing about the fakes. He seems to be a victim of a scam and writes that he wants to show the coins to an expert to get confirmation that they are fakes. I sincerely hope he pulls these coins off eBay — the sooner the better — and that he gets his money back from the fellow who sold them to him. RainbowBill needs to act fast, though, or he will reserve for himself a permanent spot on the Wall of Shame.

Seller "rianbowbill10" did not remove the fake items and two fake coins had ended. This seller was knowingly selling fake coins, since the seller had admitted that the coins were underweight and agreed to remove those items.

All items given below were reported to eBay.

260680121138, 250713520541, 260681884236, 260680622075, 260680624395.

Ebay website for reporting fake coin.
