Gotta mention that many moons ago when I was ordering coins from First Coinvesters they would throw in a Mexican Dos Pesos as an extra!!! (I said many moons ago). I ended up with 6 of them, but my sister swiped two of them to be made into earrings!
Trying to get the complete set but this was my first.
1/50th ? how small is it ? I have heard of 1/20th OZ from Canada maple leafs
Yeah, I could hardly believe it. And I thought my 1.7 g two peso coins were small!
Chinese Pandas are hot at coin shows here in Tokyo, but are mostly popular with Chinese buyers. I don't know of any bullion dealers who are interested in them, they seem to prefer Maple Leafs and Philharmonics, and some also like the Australian Kangaroos. And US bullion coins are "scrap" to them.
Yeah a 1/10th and I paid a high premium for it, one of the highest I ever paid! I hate paying such a high premium but I don't have any regrets as the premium you'll pay today is even more. Supply and demand!
For what it's worth, when gold was around $900 an ounce I decided to try and cover
both the bullion & collectible side of investing by putting together a complete set of the 1.2057 oz. pure gold Mexican circulating 50 Peso coins. (1921-1931/ 1943-1947)
It was my understanding that these were some of, if not the largest 'circulating'
gold coins ever minted, set-wise anyway. I purchased the majority from Northern Nevada Coin @ broken.com, All 3rd party graded MS-63 to MS-65. These are very nicely designed coins and the set does have 2 low mintage 'keys' (1921 & 1931) + a 1 year (1943) variety.
I have to say it's been a blast having this set and watching their prices move hither & yon.
