A first from the China Mint: Chinese coins with a U.S. design!

Beijing International Coin Exposition Commemoratives First-ever U.S. Design on a Chinese Coin!

The China Mint has a popular and longstanding tradition of striking unique, commemorative coins or medals for shows and expositions around the world. The Chinese government’s commemoration of their 2016 Beijing International Coin Exposition has led to a numismatic first – a Chinese coin with a U.S. design!

2016 China Beijing Coin Expo 30 g Silver Proof ¥10 Coin NGC PF70 UC (Exclusive Great Wall Label)

Along with a classic Chinese “junk dollar” design, the obverse of this ¥10 silver coin has been emblazoned with the Indian Head side of a U.S. Buffalo Nickel. An iconic piece of U.S. circulation coinage, the buffalo nickel is particularly important to those who found their way to coin collecting after discovering the classic design in their pocket change.

2017 China Golden Pheasants: Struck at Shanghai Mint and exclusively found at MCM!

The Golden Pheasant Shines in Gold & Silver

Add this MCM-exclusive release to your collection!

For nearly 100 years, China’s world-famous Shanghai Mint has reserved the creation of precious gold proofs for only the most culturally significant releases, often depicting real or mythological creatures that represent the nation’s rich history, culture, and heritage. Resulting in a release that cannot be found anywhere else, ModernCoinMart (MCM) partnered exclusively with China’s Shanghai Mint to create outstanding new gold and silver proof commemoratives.

2017 China Golden Pheasant – 30 g Silver Colorized Proof NGC PF70 UC Exclusive Great Wall Label

In Chinese mythology, the golden pheasant is often synonymous with the fiery phoenix for their similar crimson & gold coloring with long, beautiful tails.

As the closest thing to a real-life phoenix that humans have ever encountered, the golden pheasant was often used to represent the same ideals of peace, prosperity, beauty, and refinement.

Each gold and silver Proof represents the symbolic significance that the pheasant carries within Chinese culture.

2017 China Golden Pheasant – 3 g Gold Proof NGC PF70 UC Exclusive Great Wall Label

Available in 30g and 50g silver proofs and shining 3g gold releases, collectors can select GEM Proof commemoratives in their original Mint capsules in addition to NGC-certified PF69 and PF70 releases. All high-quality graded releases have been accompanied by our MCM-exclusive Great Wall Label to create a truly unique release.

These brand new 2017 China Golden Pheasant Proofs have very limited mintages, all ending in China’s “lucky” number, so don’t hesitate to add a little extra luck to your life today!

Chinese Coins: New and Old, Again

Buddhist thought is central to many Chinese coins, old and new.

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert…Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies…
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
‘My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!’
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

Near Datong, China. I look up and down a stone pillar, one of twin rows that flank my path. A stylized elephant just above the base holds my attention. Towering on its back is a 20-foot tall hexagonal column, the six sides decorated with seated Buddhas. Two small children clamber up to the beast and giggle as they stroke its trunk.

They covered the rare Proof 1987 G5Y Panda missing the P mint mark in a previous article, and now they are fortunate to show a Proof 1987 G10Y Panda also missing the P mint mark.

For the first time ever: First Day of Issue Silver Panda coins!

World’s First-Ever First Day of Issue Silver Panda Coins

Plus, MCM’s exclusive “One of First 30,000 Struck” label!

Since the beginning of the series, Silver Panda coins from China have been a huge hit with collectors and stackers around the globe. Like most coins, the China Pandas were originally issued in 1 Troy oz. sizes. However, in 2015, the China Mints removed the weight inscription altogether. In 2016, the China Mint shocked collectors by changing the weight measurement to gram sizes.
