Does a 1987 China 1 Yuan Great Wall proof coin exist?
« on: January 01, 2021, 07:47:00 PM »
I recently was looking at a 1987 1 yuan cupro-nickel great wall proof coin. Most of us are aware of the 1981-1986 proof versions.

Is there a 1987 also? It looks real to my eye.

Thanks

-Eric

Never heard of such a coin. The 81-86 proofs all come in a proof set. There are some talks of a 1980 Great Wall proof coin. Mr. Sun claims to own a specimen. But a 1987 Great Wall proof coin is totally unheard of. A picture will help.

Thank you for the response.

It turns out you are right. What I was looking at was a picture of the 1987 12oz silver medal. They have the same design and I didn't have a size reference.

Thanks again.
