Has a special deal been arranged yet with the sponsors?
Can someone publish the special deal opening price for each of the varieties?

I talked to the people in China about this yesterday, and I encouraged them to work on creating some kind of deal for CCF members, with a special lower price or some other advantage for members only. They should start waking up in about 4 to 6 hours, so we should know more then, after they have slept on it.

Yeah, the prices of the 2014 antique Nanjing pandas are coming down, and prices for the 2016 are going up. They will meet in the middle and then march upward together. I'm sure the low grades on 2014 vs high grades on 2016 have something to do with it. Besides being overpriced in 2014 and underpriced in 2016. Classical Gardens needs to change it up to keep things interesting. I'm all for lower prices. It is working on the Nanjing pandas, but that will be a forever series. The Classic Gardens series is supposed to end in 2017. What will happen then?? Prices will come down on Classical Gardens? Go up? Maybe the series will continue instead of ending? If it continues we need lower prices to keep the ball rolling.

The set for sale at $1,300 is a lower grade set and as such I don't think that the prices have come down on the 2014 at all.
The last copper Nanjing Panda sold today by Lucky reached $197.50 for an NGC PF70 which puts the brass ones graded PF70 at $300+

I stand corrected. Why do the prices stay up on those? They look expensive. I thought they were coming down in price. Do you think they should, or are they being supported by collectors who hold them with strong hands? If the prices dropped people won't be willing to take a loss, so they stay off the market, but then nobody wants to buy the coins that are available. When they go up, everybody wants them.

Is that not extreme hazing on the non-antique one?

I'm not sure what it is. White spots are normally from residues on the coin planchet BEFORE striking, but that haze is following the grid pattern of the design, which means its origin came AFTER striking. Weird.
