2014 Chinese Commemorative Coins

The Chinese coin market has seen the release of very interesting commemorative coins this year. This has opened the door to new opportunities in the Chinese coin market and elsewhere in the world, including here in the States.

This article in no specific order sheds light on some of the new Chinese commemorative coins issued, gives a bit of history pertaining to Chinese modern coinage, provides reasons why coin collectors should buy modern Chinese commemorative coins and provides details on how coin collectors, especially those outside China, can buy these coins cost-effectively, while having peace of mind that they’re buying legit coins, not fake tungsten filled coins (or anything along those lines).

Coin collectors who have attended The Long Beach Coin, Currency, Stamp & Sports Collectible Show recently, especially those who lend an ear to the Chinese coin experts who attended, should be able to attest to the fact that although a smaller percentage of people in China are into coin collecting than in the States, the Chinese coin collectors market is certainly growing and showing great potential. This is why coin collectors, here in the States and elsewhere, might want to take note and grab their piece of the Chinese coin collectors market, especially while they can do so at cost-effective prices.

Without getting into all the details, technical and otherwise, any coin collector that wishes to make use of the opportunity to acquire Chinese coins should take note of the following:

  • Chinese Commemorative Coins: Chinese coin collectors and/or investors seem to have a liking for Chinese commemorative coins, which is deemed modern Chinese coinage, especially if one considers that the first commemorative coins in their precious metal coin program saw first light in 1979 (or about 35 years ago). This of course doesn’t take one iota away from the popularity of traditional China Silver Panda coins, but it certainly sheds light on another noteworthy aspect of the Chinese coin collectors market. In short, there seems to be a relatively strong demand for modern Chinese commemorative coins in the Chinese coin collectors market.
  • Raw vs Graded Coins: It seems that, although raw coins are still pretty much in the order of the day in terms of the Chinese coin collectors market, an increasing number of coin collectors in China are starting to develop an affinity for graded coins, especially NGC graded and slabbed coins.

Thus, a coin collector that develops an affinity for Chinese coins, especially beyond traditional Chinese Panda coins as mentioned, want to seriously consider NGC-graded modern Chinese commemorative coins made of precious metals such as gold and silver. There is the option to buy the coins raw, but it opens the door to unknowns such as having little or no guarantee that the coins available for sale are not fakes or counterfeits.

Counterfeit coins out of China certainly need no introduction here. However, this certainly stresses the importance of buying the coins, graded and slabbed by a reputable coin grading company such as NGC, and only from a reputable dealer with a proven track record. This is not to say that the coin collector won’t find counterfeit graded and slabbed coins out there, it is just to say that he/she can minimize the risks present by taking note of the above.

Where to Buy?

Our personal choice is ModernCoinMart (MCM). They’re the leading source for modern coins and bullion and was recently rated the #1 dealer by Compare Bullion Websites.

ModernCoinMart (MCM) is now able to stock more new Chinese coins than ever before and at highly competitive prices. This is the result of new connections in Asia, so stocking these coins will not be the uphill battle for MCM that it used to be. This should come as excellent news to say the least, especially to those who have come accustomed to the fact that MCM ships to 70+ countries, accepts PayPal from both US and non-US PayPal accounts, have no minimum order requirements in place (except for bank wire and/or check), offers free domestic shipping on a permanent basis (within the States), great customer service, etc. In fact, coin collectors will be hard-pressed to find a company with a better track record than MCM when it comes to confidence, trust and reliability.

Thus, if you as a coin collector plan to venture into the Chinese coin market, you may want to do so by diverting at least a portion of your business to MCM. MCM has a great selection of NGC-graded modern Chinese commemorative coins available for sale. Here are some Chinese coins that they offer for sale that may be of interest to you, which are all very difficult to find outside mainland China…
