The success of the Singapore ICF medals earlier this year no doubt lead to the issuance of medals for the Philadelphia ANA show. By most accounts, demand for the Philly ANA pandas was stronger than for the Singapore offering.
Compared to the huge numbers of Panda coins produced by the mint in recent years, the low mintages of these medals make them an especially appealing way to get in on the ground floor of a relatively scarce issue. In addition, the medals are especially appealing to American collectors due to the Liberty Bell depicted on the back.
|2012 Singapore Show Pandas||Mintage|
|1 oz Silver Panda||10,000|
|5 oz Silver Panda||2,500|
|1/2 oz Gold Panda||N/A|
|5 oz Gold Panda||99|
This is a rare opportunity to acquire some very special low mintage pandas. Once the the modest quantities are sold out, prices are likely to rise.
