Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Buying Chinese modern coins

A MS69 on the Volleyball.  That is a high grade for these type of coins.  Be interesting to see the final sold price.

Yes, all high grade circulated coins are rare and very expensive.

Here is another example, the valuation of 1995 1 Yuan proof (50th Anniversary of defecting Japan, with mintage of 2,000), PCGS PR69 DCAM is higher than 1995 1/2 oz. gold panda in MS69.

Here is the link to the completed list. It covers auction ended this morning, 2016 Fall, 2017 Spring, 2017 Fall and  2018 Spring auctions. There is clear trend that circulated coins, especially proof coins are doing very fine in this down market. The same link will work for auction ended on 7/17.

There are many fake 1 Yuan circulated BU coins in the market (eBay). Be very careful if the seller is not creditable. Nobody will sell you 1 Yuan coin in BU condition (pre-2000) at the price you have asked for, unless it is a fake coin.


All circulated coins issued after 2016 are still available at Bank inside China and can be bought at face value. Your seller of 2017 5 Yuan coin actually has made a nice profit.

Dear Poconopenn, thank you for your helpful information.
Yes, I know the Chinese coins of every period are among the most counterfeited in the entire globe. This is why it is so complicated to deal with them, from my point of view. Another problem is the language: the only resources I found are in Chinese only, with no English translation. I also tried to navigate the People's Bank website looking for a section where I could buy the coins for face value or close to face value, but I could not find any. I tried to write an enquiry to their general info service, some weeks ago, but never got any answer.
Maybe the only way to purchase the coins from the Bank is going there physically? Or maybe you know if there is an office that I can contact and order some recent issues to be shipped to my address in Italy?

Well, I didn't actually offer any price for any specific coin.
I have just listed a random bunch of modern Chinese coins and I quoted some prices of some of those coins being offered on eBay and other platforms. I never said that all the coins I listed were sold on eBay for those prices. I specified those were just examples and of course there are some specific coins that have high prices, like the one you mentioned. But this does not mean that I think all Chinese coins have those prices. It's just that I know for sure that several of them have the prices that I quoted (I have bought some). Maybe my poor English skills made me sound not clear enough, but my point - in short - was: I know some of these coins can be bought for about those prices. Anyone here has any of them for sale?

P.S.: Just 3-4 days ago I have bought and received in my hands a lovely roll of copper 5 Yuan 2017 "Peace" for the equivalent of about 1,20 euro each coin (yes, one euro and twenty cents for one coin). And the same German dealer told me that he had just sold out other coins of the same type (copper 5 Yuan) for the same price. This prompted me to look for those coins here.
