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!

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.

George T. Morgan’s First Dollar

Restrikes brought to life in proof silver!

Former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver, Designer Extraordinaire

Numismatists will immediately recognize one of the most famous U.S. coin designs in history, the Morgan Silver Dollar. Named after its designer, George T. Morgan, this dollar circulated across the nation, from the Wild West to the busy streets of New York. This coin was the workhorse of the American economy from 1878-1921. While many collectors seek out Morgan Dollars, few know that this was not Morgan’s first dollar.

Making Numismatic History 

After resting in storage of the Smithsonian for 40 years, a treasure was found in a sketchbook that belonged to George Morgan! On page 31, Morgan had drafted a design for a U.S. Silver Trade Dollar that never made it into circulation. This design was never seen by researchers or collectors…until now!
