I have the 2001D MS-70 available, if you like.

It might be the only ms70 but if the mintage numbers are as high as is suggested it might be tough to get that price. Being this coin was for domestic consumption could be the reason they haven't been slabbed in any significant numbers. The prices of the 68's and 69's on pricepedia suggest the mintage numbers are probably correct. I just sold a 68 to a CCF member pretty cheap.

Good Luck getting you price.

MS69 will be good enough to me, so no MS70. OMP is also acceptable, thanks!

GoldenDragonGirls,

It is true that a second MS70 2001D could be graded tomorrow, or not.  I had a one-of-a-kind MS70 of a different coin a few years ago.  I looked at the relatively high mintage numbers and talked myself into thinking there would likely be many more MS70s graded, so I sold it for a modest premium.  Two years later, however, it is still the only MS70 of its kind.

Also, regarding the 2001D, in particular, I have been interested in getting a 2001D G1/2.  I looked at those large mintage numbers a few years ago and I held off on buying one, thinking there would eventually be a surge of availability, and the price would decrease.  I still don't have a 2001D G1/2, and the price has been increasing signficantly.  Perhaps the 2001D's aren't as abundant as the mintage indications?

Moreover, regarding the grading of the 2001D.  Recall from previous threads that the 2001D tends not to grade as well as other gold pandas.

The 2001D gold Panda generally has a duller luster and a softer strike than the export version. Basically, it doesn't  look as good. Unless a grader is experienced enough to expect this, he/she is likely to give it a lower grade.

Best wishes,

Indeed, some form members have lamented that they sent seemingly pristine omp 2001D in to be graded, only to get a disappointingly low grade.

I checked on PCGS website today and they graded my Gold 1 oz. 2001-D as a ms68...

If they new ANYTHING about grading they would have known my 2001 D was an early strike with zero nicks, marks, or blemishes. Just had to get that off my chest...

Time will tell how things shake out.  I am happy to hold on to this 2001D MS70 G500Y for the long term if no wants to jump on it right now.  I don't want to make the same mistake twice of selling a unique MS70 too soon and too cheaply.

I gather that since you sold your MS68 2001D, you have acquired your MS69.  If I recall correctly, you have an enviable collection of G1oz pandas.  Congratulations.
