Yep. Interesting indeed. http://www.ebay.com/itm/CHINA-2004-YEAR-OF-THE-MONKEY-PAPER-CUT-BU-GEM-ULTRA-LOW-MINTAGE-/252009216982?hash=item3aaceb7bd6:g:xj4AAOSwHnFVjte1

If this 2000 mintage 2004 Year of the Monkey medal sells for this amount what will the 2008 (500 mintage) Year of the Rat medal sell for?  N20

Full disclosure: I own some of these.

Some collectors say 500 mint while others say less and others say 2000.    03 is when Chinese were allowed to buy gold/silver.    Why would anyone want to buy a expensive Premium Gold Panda set w/ different box/coa and worthless silver color lunar medal?   (worthless back then)    The buyers would just want the Gold Set not Premium.    So i agree w/ the lower mintage numbers.   The Monkey for $600 has 4 watchers.   I get emails saying the dealer/collectors have targeted this Color Lunar.    True?    Makes sense to me........could actual mintage be under 500?   Where are the actual mintage numbers coming from?....

Has anyone seen one of these in slabs (PCGS)? Does grading and encapsulation increase the premium and it's collectibility?

Why was collecting this series kept so quiet until recently?    Wg's photo collection is awesome.    Good to know PCGS is grading them.   Is there any accurate mintage info from the mint?..........

wg since you have the COAs and OMPs can you send one of each medal to NGC together with photocopies of the COAs to enable them start grading and encapsulating those medals. PCGS cannot be wrong? That will be of great service to those who do not have the COAs. We shall all appreciate your assistance in this matter. Thanks.
