Silver Pandas and the Law of Supply and Demand—an Analysis

The first four issues in the silver Panda coin series were produced in 1983, 1984, 1985 and 1987. Mintages were very low, ranging from 10,000 to about 30,000—and these currently sell for up to $2,000 each—if you can find them. The next group of silver Panda coins, minted from 1989 through 2000, have mintages ranging from 100,000 to about 250,000; these are also becoming difficult to locate and prices for many of them have passed the $100 mark. The third group of silver Panda coins were minted from 2001 through 2010, with mintages of 500,000 to 800,000. These are still generally available at prices of about $50-$80. But it looks like the 2011 silver Panda coins - which will arrive AFTER the new year - will make ALL previous issues  RARE—since the 2011 silver Panda mintage is set at 3 MILLION—at least 5 times more than any previous issue.

So, what does this mean to collectors? The large mintage of 2011 silver Pandas to be issued next year has the potential to create hundreds of thousands of new silver Panda collectors in China and throughout the world—who will likely buy silver Pandas made in future years in presumably similar mintages. But many of these new collectors may decide that they want to assemble complete collections of these popular coins. The Law of Supply and Demand could drive up the prices of the rarest of these issues (1983, 1984, 1985 and 1987) to stratospheric levels and could price them out of the reach of most collectors. In addition, the silver Pandas with mintages ranging from 100,000 to 800,000 (1989-2010) could quickly see demand outstrip the modest supply—with prices increasing accordingly.
 
If you are a collector, we strongly recommend trying to complete your collection of silver Pandas as quickly as possible. If you are an investor, you should seriously consider acquiring a quantity of the least expensive silver Pandas—the 2010 issue, which we are currently selling for $55 each.  Don’t wait too long—or these prices could become just a fond memory!
China 2010 Panda 1 oz. Silver Coin

Is this the last low mintage silver Panda?

And if you are a silver Panda collector, we will start receiving our shipment of the 2011 silver Pandas shortly—and when we do you will be notified. Keep in mind that there are over 1.3 BILLION people in China, so even with a mintage of 3 million—only 1 person out of more than 400 in China can ever hope to own one—and that doesn’t take into account the collectors and investors around the world!

One additional important note: Since each silver Panda contains a full troy oz. of 99.9% pure silver, each silver Panda has a melt value that recently hit $30 and that many precious metal experts predict could pass $50 an ounce—giving currently low-priced silver Pandas a dual potential for future price increases—due to increases in the value of the silver content AND increases in collector demand.
