* 1984 was the Chinese Zodiac year of Rat. Its commemorative coin of Rat was officially issued in January of 1984.

On the obverse of the gold coin, there engraved “Beijing” in Chinese characters and the year of circulation. Its architectural design is the ancient building of Beijing called Qianmen, which is also known as Zhengyangmen. At 42 meters high, Qianmen lies to the south end of Tiananmen Square and was the front gate of inner Beijing City during Ming and Qing Dynasties. First built in 1421, the Gate was consisted of a gatehouse and an archery tower, which forms a large barbican. On the top of the gatehouse there were diamond shaped windows and red bricks were the base. Qianmen was extensively reconstructed after it was destroyed several times. Because of its grandeur and unique design, Qianmen has considered as one of the symbols of Beijing.  The image on the reverse is a copy of a famous Chinese painter Mr. Qi Baishi’s Mice and True Autumn.  For many years, Chinese painters have traditionally linked the mice with peanuts or candlelight. However, Mr. Qi Baishi created a unique style by incorporating mice with pumpkin, which clearly expressed mice’s quick-witted characteristic. His exquisite brushwork, flowing lines and graceful pattern displayed his pen and ink technique. When applying the picture to the coin, the size of the pumpkin was reduced. This gave prominence to the Mice and created a perfect image of Mice. View images
