Interview with FS Yip, Founder of Panda Lot Shop Malaysia

Interview with Panda Lot Shop

We recently met a Chinese Panda silver coin enthusiastic and manage to have an interview with him. Nicknamed the Pandaman, FS Yip discussed with his views and opinions on investing in Chinese Panda silver coins.

Q: Hi FS Yip. Can you share with us your early days in investing in Silver? What brings you into investing silver?

Hi KH. Between 2009 and 2010, I read about silver investment from Robert Kiyosaki’s book. However, during that time, I was clueless about how to buy physical silver or even paper silver!

I asked my family members and friends but they all have no clues on how to invest in silver. Finally, in October 2011, I’ve found a thread in on investing physical silver. Since then, I have been consistently buying and selling physical silver.

Q: Of all silver coins in the market now, it is noticeable that you have particular interest in Chinese Panda. Please share with us, what ignites your interest in the coin?

My first purchase was 1oz Chinese Silver Panda 2011. I was offered a good price that time. Thereafter, just like many, I started buying all sort of silver coin like Canadian Maple Leaf, Australian Kookaburra, Perth Mint Lunar etc.

After comparing the details and handicrafts of many silver coins, I had my target set on Silver Pandas. Not only they are nicely crafted, they are also a popular investment choice in China, US, Europe and Australia!

UOB: Sorry, Gold Coins are Out of Stock

I went to UOB at Jalan Raja Laut around lunch time today to do my regular Ounce Cost Averaging on Gold. I usually buy gold bullion at beginning of the month. I took my queue ticket and patiently waited for my turn.

When my turn was up, I walked to the counter and said to the banker, “I would like to buy gold bullion coin”.

I got a shocking reply.

“Sorry, all gold bullion coins are out of stock.”

Out of Stock!

I was like, “What?”

“Yes. Out of stock.”

“When is the next batch of stock coming in?”

“No idea. But we have ordered since a month back.”
