That oval color horse variety is a good find....

Are these color silver lunars the first color lunars?....

Thanks for the post.    I was beginning to think there maybe one or more 2007 Color Pigs even after we were told no issue...

It makes sense that due to low prices/low grade there are many Color Lunars that are not graded, price hike will bring them to grading...





2010 PF 67 Gilt Tiger   $1,499     Ebay 264155657491  Very good German seller.    Same seller also has a 08 PF 69 Color Rat for about $500 and a PF 70 (listed as 69) for about $1,000.      Big price but the Germans have a much better opinion of these Color Silvers being rare then the US dealers/collectors have.      Will Gov Mint, the sole supplier, give us more accurate actual mint/sales numbers for this series?     What do the German collectors know that we do not? .......  (I found a Gilt Tiger OMP last yr on ebay for about $50 or less due to no bidders.).

In photos this series looks good, in hand the colors pop so i can see them becoming popular....

In hand the 2010 gilt tiger is a real beauty and one of my favorite Chinese.      My friends saw the PF 67 listed and considered saving up to buy it but i said too expensive.       Does anyone have any mint numbers on the gilts (2008-?).     Looks like the market for these Color Silver Lunars has a collection group so many more should be graded and hopefully price drop for gilt...
