2018 1 oz China Kiangnan Dragon Dollar One .999 Silver Proof Restrike (NGC PF70 UC One of First 50 Struck)
LPM is proud to present the first coin in our new 8 coin series, China's Famous Vintage Coin Series.
A classic is reborn. The Kiangnan 7 Mace 2 Candareens coin is one of the most sought after vintage Chinese coins and has been brought back to life in the form of a 1oz silver coin.
In 1897, the Heaton Mint in Birmingham developed the original dies of a series of silver denominations for the Kiangnan Mint. The Obverse features the iconic image of a Chinese dragon coiled in a wide retrograde “S” shape with a fireball from his mouth, staring intensely out at the observer. The reverse features 4 Chinese and 4 Manchu characters, all reading as “Kuang Hsu Yuan Pao”, within a chain pattern of tiny capital “S” figures.
For the first time ever, a Chinese mint will laser etch the year, weight and purity on the rim of the coin. Limited mintage of 5,000 coins of each design, the reborn classic will be a striking addition to any collection!
