It's the Silver Pandas that are faked a lot more than the Gold ones, I have been told. Fakes exist of everything the fact that it is a Chinese coin is irrelevant; anything can and is faked.

I have never heard about fake Silver Panda's ...but ...that doesn't mean they are not around ...
Fact is that in this area ...the Gold Panda is a big NoNo and the Silver Panda has a market ...now as stated before I don't know if there would be a return of the premium ...since I never sold one !
To clear the air ... I'm not very big on Silver ... I'm a Goldbug ! with a second choise for platinum ...third palladium ... but still have some Silver

I hear about fakes a lot but seems like very few photo's around so folks could look and learn. I've heard that some of the fake coins have no demomination (10 y) imprinted into the coins and that would be one of the first visual cue's to look for. Also they tend to weigh less than the 31.1 grams. I'm still researching these Panda's and from what I see on a few sites, that they command a hefty premium, and I would be very curious to find out what wholesale prices to dealers would be. Brittania's also command a fairly high premium and I have a few of these. The basic price is set from their own Mints'. Even Maples with privy marks are getting pricey. I suppose that is why they are quazi-numi's.

Does anyone think that the market for these will go up now that the Chinese gov. has now opened up silver and encourages it peoples to buy silver now? Or is that a mute point?

Within the past six months I have seen 2 different people on craigslist selling fake 1 oz silver rounds and 1/10 ounce gold. The one guy had a quite a few of them 27 Silver panda and 16 1/10 ounce fractionals. I assume they probably got burned, and were trying to pass the buck so to speak.

35.00 to 40.00.
Tell me it's a good deal. I have no idea why somebody would sell a 65.00 coin for 35.00. I am getting a deal...right?
Have you any photo's of these? Are you talking about the selectively gold plated versions over real silver Panda?...or.

Is there an on-line source to use as a referrence for Panda's? I see only one book/catalog available, but wow..expensive, and shipping to Canada is an added $20.00...yulp! Education is definetly expensive eh?

My best guess why people dump the Panda's ...sometimes ...
In that area would be no market ( or no longer ) mainly due to counterfeits ...
In my area for example You can buy or sell Silver Panda's , but not the Gold Panda .....
So .... they can't sell them ( not even to dealers ) so ...they dump them !

My guess !

James 007: thanks for posting photo's as I'm learning myself. In photo #1 ..there is no 10Y on the coin..so I would be suspicious of that one. Second photo, I'm not sure, did it come from the mint that way or did a jobber do the plating?...perhaps others can state their opinions. Sure wish I had a book on these. Certainly makes it more intersesting than your normal generic rounds. Thanks again James 007.
