(Long Beach, California) - At the Long Beach Coin, Stamp & Sports Collectible Expo February 7-9, 2013, we will have a drawing for a special 2013 Long Beach Expo Panda medal each day. These genuine 5-ounce silver commemorative medals, commissioned by Panda America, come directly from an official mint of the People's Bank of China.
The Shen Zhen Guobao Mint has struck .999 fine silver five-ounce commemorative Panda medals in conjunction with the show. The mintage is only 2,500, and they will be offered for sale in specially-produced holders while supply lasts.
Chinese Pandas are becoming some of the most popular collector coins and medals in the world. And the Expo will be full of Pandas for you to enjoy and add to your collection:
