There is increasing interest in the actual artists, designers and engravers behind the coins and medals we showcase and discuss in this forum. I suggest we post information in this thread that will increase our knowledge of these creative individuals. It is a fact file of some sort written in any style you want. It's not just their names, but any information in the public domain about them. Titbits. History. Their musings and thoughts. Photos. Their portfolio. Mints they have worked at. Etc, etc, etc! Lets update and upgrade the information regularly. Thanks for your support.

I have accurate information?   Nope.   That is why i post because i want to learn.   Cannot speak or read Chinese so am somewhat helpless.    However I can eat Chinese food and lots of it.   Korean/Chinese/Asian food is the best in the World.   That is why i strongly dislike chopsticks and love a shovel!    Where there is a will there is a way, so you members that know the facts can work together.   Maybe Barsenault and his video experience can help w/ photos?   It would be great to see the names of the famous artists and their MCC.   Back in the 1970's & 80's it must have been just a good job to design MCC but soon these artists will be Rock Stars.........

Just received a PM today indicating that while many earlier coins may have been designed and engraved by the same person the situation has changed in recent years; it seems that more than one individual may be involved in the process now. As we comb through information we'll have to take that into consideration. The aim currently is to identify individuals involved in crafting these coins and medals. It is also possible that some of the established designers may have more junior staff working on the same project under their guidance to varying extents during the design and engraving of coins and medals.

Please send me your thoughts and other information or post them here. Furthermore, please call my attention to any errors or items that need further clarification. Right now I am just listing most of the information I come across but will gradually clean it up with time especially with feedback.

The problem with listing here is that you cannot edit what you have posted after a few minutes. For example Year of the Child is not a medal series, but then you cannot edit it; or add to the listing under Chen Jian. He designed many more coins and medals.

My plan is to update the file I have on my computer with all corrections and additions every week or two, depending on the volume and post again. A bit clumsy but that is the only way I know for now. Maybe re-upload every month until it becomes more stable. Unless there is a database in CCF that can be updated without creating many copies. Will keep on exploring options.

The book attached below gives name of all designers and engravers for MCC minted between 1979-1990. Please note that in many instants, the obverse and reverse may have different designer and engraver.

The book is in Chinese.

Thanks for the information. Obviously we cannot download the contents due to copyright laws. However, someone who has such a book can fact check any entries we make here from time to time as well as contribute critical information.

There are probably hundreds of designers and engravers, and thousands of coins and medals, that cannot all be highlighted here. I am hoping we can identify designers of coins/medals we commonly come in contact with in the forums and in the marketplace.

Chen Jian is reputed to have designed and/or sculptured more than 300 coins and medals. Any examples I list here are just that, examples! I hope someone has catalogued and photographed all those coins and medals, including draft drawings, models and rejected versions, etc. Will be a treasure trove of MCC numismatic information!

Just came across this book by Chen Jian and others. Most likely there are other information sources such as this out there.

This book is for large size (diameter>70 mm) copper medals. It was posted in this thread.

There is another book (picture attached below) posted by pandaorlunar in the same thread. Both books are for large size copper medals.   Since those medals are considered as artworks, the name of designers and engravers are listed next to the picture of the medal to recognize their contributions. In many instants, the designer and engraver are not the same person for obverse and reverse. Therefore, it is highly possible a single medal can have multiple designers and engravers.

Buy the book, before buy the coin/medal.

I have no idea if it was ever for sale. It appeared to be a private printing.

I would also like to add another medal to Rocky Zhao's work. A couple of years ago he made a demonstration 1 oz. silver medal that he called his business card. It was struck at the Shanghai Mint, of course. Mintage unknown, but they weren't for sale. Once upon a time there was a photo of it in China Pricepedia. I will try to find that photo and post it here.

It was struck at the Shanghai Mint, of course. Mintage unknown, but they weren't for sale. Once upon a time there was a photo of it in China Pricepedia. I will try to find that photo and post it here.

Best wishes,

Looking forward to seeing another example of the creativity and prodigous amount of work done by the China Mint designers and engravers.

Fang Maosen
1984 brass Einstein medal

Zeng Chenghu
1984 brass Maxim Gorky medal

and the 1983 brass Fortune and Marital Happiness was designed and sculptured by Luo Yonghui not Yi Shizong

by the way,It is common that one coin/medal was finished by several artists and engravers,especially these medals from Shenyang mint,some were finished by a team.

and for these copper medals(60MM diameter and more than 60MM diameter),from 1979 to 2015,only the official mint,Shanghai and Shenyang mint,struck more than one thousand varieties copper medals,it needs a large time to sort them out.

Thanks for the additional information and correction. The fortune and happiness medal attribute will now be reflected under Luo Yonghui instead of Yi Shizong.

I have noted the team approach to finishing of coins and medals (in some and not all cases?). This will be noted when I have information to that effect.

My aim is not to catalogue every single Chinese mint artist, designer and engraver. I am trying to identify especially those that were involved with coins and medals that are popular with collectors.

Great contribution. +1 and Thanks again.

Zhao Qiang is also the designer of the ruins side of the Yuanmingyuan medal. Zhang Chunye and Dong Huizhen designed and engraved the other side. Not sure who engraved the ruins side. I will ask.

Many. Tong Youming, Gu Xinbao and Luo Yonghui produced many designs in the past. But the first two are retired, I believe. Luo Yonghui will retire soon.

The 2013 Peace Medal

The following Chinese mint artists collaborated with their American counterparts to design this medal that commemorates President Nixon’s visit to China 40 years ago. The medal was minted by an American based company. AFAIK this is not an official Chinese mint product.

Luo Yonghui
Long Hu*
Lan Xiaomi*
Lin Feng
Xu Gang

*Husband and wife team.

How about Feng Yunming?    Fwang has a translation post on him.    He is the Pioneer or Grandfather of MCC medals.    His medal sets are the first of all medals.     They are private mint and called semi official because he was asked to produce medals for special occasions by the China Mint.   China Mint like them so much the Mint started striking their own medals.   If the goal of collecting is to buy the first year and highest quality then Feng is the first year.   (However his medal quality is not good due to private mint.)   His sets were considered private mint junk and melted for years until articles came out a few years ago.   Feng is the first artist/designer of all MCC medals, numero uno.................am i wrong?.........

Yes, this list is worth maintaining in my view.

Besides "fwang2450" being an exceptional resource, I have also found "Andrew Lee" on the SilverStackers forum to have a wealth of info on Chinese medals.

KOT    Feng has 1 Gold Horse and 5 Silver sets....
silver sets
1979 Chinese Painting set   2 pc silver set
1979  Unearthed relics or Archaeological 12 pc silver set
1980 Be open to navigation  2 pc silver set
1981 Lu Xun 2 pc silver set..........Fwang's blog has photo of set w/ gold Lu Xun too but i have never seen it on ebay...
1981 70th Anniversary Xin Hai  1 silver ........i have seen it w/ gold too....

1979?  Gold flying horse on swallow

Several gilt brass and aluminum medals posted on topic "CATTE aluminum Feng set".....   Even collectors/dealers in China do not own or have no knowledge of these medals.     Unknown medals from early artists are a gamble but could prove to have big value when/if there is a publication.     Feng is alive today so it should be easy for the Chinese book authors to contact him for details.....
