Asking prices for the 91 1/10 seem to have increased markedly.  And these two are the only 69s on ebay.

Modern Chinese Coins / Re: 1980 Lantern series medal CU-NI strike?

Interesting, so if it is genuine and which it does look real to me then this would be a restrike. If this is a restrike then there should be a 1980 GOL somewhere in the world. Since these are official mint products there should be documentation locked up somewhere, especially a project of this scale with so many important people involved. Until that information surfaces the mystery continues…

Thank you for translating Mr. Haoyu Li's post and for giving us more depth into Palace Lantern Series! This is great information on these fascinating medals and we can now understand the level of difficulty to complete the entire series.
It is super difficult to have the complete set. Even Li is missing some. When everyone agreed that there were 9 designs on the reverse,  out of the blue a Palace Lantern with the God of Longevity showed up, the only specimen discovered so far.

The only other area in the world that has strange archaeological finds maybe S. America.  China is tops for some of the strangest designs, artwork or factual representations.   Amazing what they find in China and it is non stop.  What a past strange history of China. 
 
A few photos i could find and why i like so much of China's artwork.  Could not find the other examples at this time.
 
Have recruited many newbies to this forum and to investigate Chinese coins/medals.  They are also shocked by some of the artwork.  Even Dragons or Dragons/Phoenix they have never seen before.  Scroll up for photo of large brass God w/ Bats.  Pandas are new to many....

1st photo looks like a ET.     2nd Bird w/ ring?? Huh?  Feng medal.  Of course i collect all his medals when possible.
Turtle w/ snake?  What the heck is that?  Lui Hai & Toad?  famous story in China but different to West newbies...
God of Longevity is normal to us but not to others.. 2006 color dog - out in left field but very different...

US coins are boring.  No wonder the world mints copy Chinese.  Those that collect Chinese are used to coins/medal designs but the new collectors are in awe.....
