Just a short blog this week.

I typically don't buy modern and/or bullion coins and I know you are supposed to buy the coin not the holder. But, I think this coin and slab are a stunning combination. I wouldn't want a colored holder on any of my better coins because I think it would take away from the coins appearance. In general I don't know how I feel about the direction NGC is taking with the appearance of there slabs. Supposedly this is a exclusive design only available from MCM.

Buy what you like and you can't go wrong.

Just a note: the coin in the photo is not the actual one in my collection. I don't have a photo of it yet but it is identical aside from the certification number.



Level 4

Love that panda, nice blog.

Level 5

Very pretty with the panda. Love the coin, too. Sure works in this combo, although maybe not for every coin type though.


Level 5

You are right, it is a stunning combination. I think the 2016 panda being the first year of issue of the new 30 gram weight will be highly collectable going forward!


Level 7

First of nice pick up. Remember modern coin's become old coin's. NGC has improved in there new slabs. I will take a coin that I believe is worth saving and send it in. The slab will protect the coin for years and years. If I like the coin then it's worth the 17$ I pay. If I get a good grade then that's just gravy! It's a can't lose situation.Mike. by the way thanks
