Luang Por Pae produced the first ever sacred powder amulets in 2494 BE, sixteen years before the creation of the Somdej Pae Pan (1000). The first Pra Somdej was a Pra Somdej in two Pim models. The second time he made amulets was in 2509 BE, also with 2 different models (Pim). The first Pim has two small Sacred Yant on the rear side, (Luang Por's traditional Pu-Sorn Yantra), and the second Pim bearing the sitting image of Luang Por Pae on the rear face.
Luang Por Pae 1000, 2000, 4000 are the most highly valued and sought after (and rarest) of all the different series, because these were the editions which made the least numbers of amulets, increasing their rarity.
There were also smaller 'Pim Kanaen' models in each edition, which had also usually two different styles of miniature Somdej amulet released; One with a full frontal image of Luang por Pae on the back, and the second tier of the Buddha's dais having a 'Thaan Singh' (lion legs).
