Collection of my Thai Religious Amulets/Pendants - Message Board/Guestbook

Religious Thai Amulets are immensely popular among many Thai locals or even the Chinese that residing in South East Asia - probably most followers never have the chance to worship the religion and hopefully with the little image that we wear on the body can provide some form of relief. As I mentioned in the site, probably it takes a Thai to create such a high quality website features specifically on these lovely collective pendants. As I can never be claimed knowledgeable in this strong thai traditions but since I am a web developer in nature, I create this solely for personal consumption and hope to provide a linkage among all passionate collectors. Some of the opinion presented within the site was entirely personal and I do not wish to influence any decision prior to any potential purchases or disposal. So, this forum is intended to provide a channel for all to make use of it to present your own individual views. Enjoy.

Thanks to Mr.Raymond.The TRaja sections re very interesting,so as the photos of the amulets.The TRaja medallion star phin is made in the year 2502 and the rian koew (round)made in the year 2500.The black colour rian koew is the 2nd batch made by the late Than Mit.The Bucha (big)TRaja is the 1st batch made by Than
Chan(Akong)in the year 2525
In part 2 section,the TRaja medallion is made by Than Chan in the year 2524(1st batch)and the Than Chan medallion is the 1st batch made by Than Chan himself in 1972.The 2nd batch is distributed during the cremation of Than Chan.About the TRaja wanj(powder)amulets,i think its best for me not to commend so as not to hurt anybody.I can say that the double side amulet TRaja and pidta(2in1)look a bit different in the form of size and the image of TRaja.About the top amulet with many pidtas and the pidta with the lotus at the back,I think its best for me not to commend because I havent seen this phin before.
Here s a few tips how to identify the TRaja wanj(powder)amulets.
a.the amulets should look dry,because they re already more than 50 years.
b.there shouldnt be any coating eg.oil or other substance,because the original coating should be dry by now after more than 50 years.
c.there shouldnt be any strong smell from the amulets,because the original smell is already disappear after such a long time.Only new amulets will give out strong smell.
I m just sharing my experience with the members of the forum and hope it will benefits everyone.Please beware that there are so many FAKE TRaja amulets in the market now.

Hello and good evening to all, It's sad to hear that Than Win has been in ill health for some time now. Even when I was last at the temple some 1 year ago, I did not manage to see him as he was in ill health. Does any bro. know if it's still possible to visit Than Win at the temple? I'll be going up to Penang next week and it'll be nice if I can get to see him in person by then. regards, Anthony.

Dear Michael: Sorry. I have never intended to suggest a LP Ngern would easily cost anyone RM50,000-00 a piece. That was merely the asking price of a seller who first approached Uncle Wichien to showcase some of his family collection of a series of good, old images (please read: http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/leofoo/Thai-amulets/leofoo/htmls/index1a.htm). Basically, ALTHOUGH I would not like to intervene in content appeared herein in this forum but as my name was quoted, I have to make a little clarification so as not to misled anyone. Personally, I am not sure if the discussion of prices relating to amulets are a good idea (Fortunately, I can also judge all the postings are SOLELY individual views rather carried with commercial intention from any dealer) but since Tok Raja was a respectable local image which I am not entirely familiar with, so, as much as I am trying to digest from whatever inputs that have gathered thus far, but I think it is also important not to stress to much emphasis on certain areas (in particularly, relates to suggestive prices).

Take the asking price of the earlier LP Ngern for an example, the pieces, other than varible of factors, such as rarity, year of produce, collective value in each of them - it was also the owner's father personal collection. It certainly also carried with some sentimental element inside. In any case, it is hard to let go some good pieces (regardless of spiritual collectible pieces or some consumable such as a Leica, Rolex etc.) One may love to own it, but on the other hand, deep inside, the owner may also love to keep them for personal reasons such as remembrance value and/or appreciation - while the least intention was to dispose them to a stranger who may be interested in them. So, sometimes a modest way is to call for a price tag with personal evaluation in defending between the line of possession or disposal. So, I would not suggest that was supposed to be the "market" price even if they are authenticated by a "qualified" guru grader in this trade. It is all depends on how strong in individual desire or belief in concluding a possible, successful transaction. Sorry for cooling down everyone's high spirit in this topic.

Bro Yong Peng,I think you ve mistaken,I never mentioned about a TRaja pidta with a somdej at the other side, may be someone else.

To my knowledge there re only a few phin(types)made by TRaja.
a.phra pidta (handcrafted & moulding)
b.two sided amulet(TRaja&pidta)
c.handcrafted Nangphaya specially for his devotee in Penang using the phra pidta materials.(1piece)

Beside the above amulets, TRaja also distributed various types of copper and bronze medallion made from 2500 to 2505.TRaja also made phayant(handwritten & printed)to distibute to his devotees. Beware, there re a lot of fake TRaja & Than Chan (Akong) medallion in the market now. Metta,regards to all.

Thank you Mr Tony. 2 in 1 amulet is very expensive and indeed rare to find. Do you know how many pieces were made? I was told that Tok Raja, as mentioned earlier by you, carved a small pidta on a a plain somdet amulet as rare amulet 10 pieces made? Thanks.
