  1. For 2021, the US Mint is issuing 999 fine silver Morgan and Peace Dollars to celebrate 100 years since the 1921 (last year) they were both issued. Preorder was started but was pulled temporarily due to shortage of silver from US Mint suppliers... https://www.usmint.gov/news/inside-the-mint/celebrating-the-iconic-morgan-and-peace-silver-dollars
  2. I concur that a gold sixpence does not really make sense since the traditional wedding sixpence is silver. It would be like creating a new sixpence tradition for the wealthier upper class that can afford the gold. JMO
  3. @Britannia47, great snag on the 1994 set acquisition. 1994 (large & small date) is nicely situated in Huang Ruiyong’s priority list.
  4. OMP for gold Pandas is sealed plastic (which is a pain to store properly). here’s the 2015
  5. @Touvex, My wife gave me my first 1 troz gold Panda for my birthday in 1984 (it was a 1983). After our second child was born in 1989, I decided to buy the current year issue and back track the previous issues back to 1982. 1 troz is my preferred size and all of them were obtained raw and left in their OMP. Don’t have any good photos of them. A shorter list that I have are the 1 troz platinum Pandas. Same design as the gold and were only issued as proofs from 1987 - 1990 (4 year run).
  6. Peter Anthony’s book will help the gold Panda collector identify the small date and large date varieties as well as the serif and mirror varieties. Not found in the book is the list compiled by a well known Chinese collector named Huang Ruiyong who came out with the priority list below... Gold Panda 'year priority' list arranged in 2012 by Huang Ruiyong according to his extensive research: 1998 Shenyang Large Date 2000 Shanghai Mirror 1999 Shanghai Small Date 1999 Shenzhen Guobao Serif 1998 Shanghai Small Date 1995 Shenyang Small Date 1995 Shanghai Large
  7. Starting with 2016, they are 30 grams (not 1 tr oz - which is 31.103 grams).
  8. Never seen bullion platinum with purity declared on the metal higher than 9995. 9999 and 99999 sounds too good to be true. JMO edited to add: not clicking the link
  9. Thanks for mentioning Peter Anthony: The Gold and Silver Panda Coin Buyer’s Guide by Peter Anthony is a comprehensive reference book that is a must-have for any serious Panda collector.
  10. I have all the 1 Troy ounce PL bullion gold Pandas from 1982 thru 2015 (including 1987 - 3 mint marks - S, Y & P and 2001 no & D mint marks). I quit collecting the series when China Mint went metric starting 2016 to 30 grams instead of Troy ounce. To avoid high premium old issues going back to 1982, I suggest starting your collection from 2016 (when they went metric). Good luck on your starting a gold Panda collection. Here’s a brochure picture showing 1982 thru 2016 designs...
  11. 1923 Germany Notgeld Rhine-Ruhr 50, 100, and 500 Million Mark Things were very grim in Germany. War, human atrocities, ruthless dictators, crushing defeats, and financial collapse plagued the nation. German cities issued their own coinage since the imperial coins were completely worthless. It was an emergency and replacement money was needed. That's what notgeld means: emergency money. This piece of notgeld from the Rhine-Ruhr region is particularly gruesome. The coin was struck at 33 mm in diameter, designed by the famous German medalist Karl Goetz. Greek god Prometheus appears on t

  13. Lower relief dies on sovereigns started in 2016 with the Jody Clark QE2 effigy.
  14. I do not think I’ve reached 100 gold coins yet but I do know I’ve reached 100 Troy ounces already.
