Chinese Characters of the official mints
« on: February 19, 2013, 10:34:43 AM »
This may have been posted before, but my search can't find it.

Does anyone have the Chinese characters typically used on the COA's and sometimes the coin itself for the  3 official mints

Shanghai
Shenzen
Shenyang

as well as any variations of those characters between the coin and COA over the years?

How about the Nanjing mint?  Do they produce official coins now as well?

Thanks,

Shanghai in Chinese is two characters: 上海.  It is frequently abbreviated to single character, 上, as mint identification.

Shenyang is two characters: 沈阳, and it is frequently abbreviated to single character, 沈, for mint identification.

Shenzhen Guobao is four characters: 深圳国宝.  On the PCGS slab it is shorten to Shenzhen: 深圳.  However, the character Guo, 国 is frequently used for its mint identification.

Thanks for the responses.   :biggrin:

NGC has been certifying the 2012 Nanjing mint god of wealth and god of fortune medals, which is why I asked.

I'm also curious to see if they will be certifying additional medals from the Nanjing mint (especially any older ones).

If one were to use a character to identify Nanjing,
I would use:

宁   Ning

It's kinda like shorthand.
