From basketball games to kite festivals to international diplomacy,
the Gold and Silver Panda Buyer’s Guide tells the stories
behind the Panda coins and their native country.
Pandas that used to be sold as bullion coins now cost thousands of
dollars, though some owners are ignorant of the coins’ true market value.
We have plenty on the off-metal 1943 Lincoln
Cents and on the origin of Q. David Bowers’ column:
A reader wonders how much his 1943 cent struck on a dime planchet
is worth, while a long-time numismatist wonders why the origins of
two new bronze 1943 cents were revealed.
According to Anthony, “Many valuable coins still trade hands based
on their metal content because buyers and sellers don’t realize their
scarcity. High profits are already going to those who know which is
which. The Gold and Silver Panda Buyer’s Guide is the only book
that pinpoints overlooked and undervalued Pandas [and] the coins most
likely to rise farthest and fastest.”
The hardcover third edition features 368 pages.
In addition to coverage of all Panda coins released through early
2017, the book has a bonus section on Chinese Unicorn coins.
The book was published with a cover price of $58.88. Distributor
PandaAmerica offers the book for $50.
