This is just a quick update on a bet by a friend. He has been arguing with me that we cannot get 1976 seladang enggang commemorative non-proof coins set for RM400 nowadays. I told him, I saw many dealers sell that coins for only RM450 with a box and sometimes certificate. He said that it is an old price, today people sell them at lest RM450 for the coins set because its already hard to find them. He bet that I cannot find a Conservation commemorative non-proof silver coins set (without box) below RM400 mark. I accept his challenge because I know that is an easy task. The winner will get RM400 and bet will end on 31 August 2012.
The argument arise when he is not satisfied with Malaysia coin prices that I share in my new Malaysia coin blog. He said that the price is don't show the real market price. The fact is, I knew he collect many Malaysia coins and he bought them at a very high price from one dealer. Friends has been advising him about the price he paid and the quality of coins that he received. He cannot accept because he said the dealer has been a good friend since he start collecting. He has been avoiding all the bad thing that he heard about the dealer.
Today, I have a chance to do a hunting trip for that coins. First shop that I visit is Dickson Niew Shop in Subang Jaya. I thought I am unlucky when I cannot see the seladang & enggang coins in his coins display. When I ask him about the coins with the red box, he said that the coins has been gone long time ago but he have two more red box with a certificate. He said that the box came from America and still in nice condition. All the Seladang and Enggang coins has been sold. He offer me RM87 for the red box & certificate. In my thought at that moment, the bet is all about the coins without a box and the red box is a little bit hard to find. I grab his offer and think where can I get the coins I seek.
Suddenly, I remember about Mr. Peter Ang, who is also a blogger. I called him and asked if he got any Seladang Enggang Coin set, he said he have one set at the moment and I straight away go to his slcollectors shop at Millinieum Square, Petaling Jaya. When I arrived at his shop, he show me that coins, its in AUNC condition. At first, I thought he will be asking a high price for that coin. He is looking at his website slcollectors.com and offer me RM300 for the coins set. Fuuuh.., lucky me. Look like I get the complete set for only RM387. Hahahaha....
