Thank you for the offer.   But I need the 5 Yuan or 10 Yuan.

Unfortunately, Alex did not attend Marty's funeral, but neither did many other people who would have liked to. If you are interested it might be worth looking at any known Alex Shagin designed medals to see if there is a signature, or initials on those. I will see what I can learn.

Best wishes,

Marty arranged for me to interview Alex Shagin in 2014. At the end Alex gave me a medal he had designed. It does not have ASH anywhere on it. We talked about the IDOC series and his work on it as well as other projects. I do not recall him mentioning any other designs that he did for China, but I will check the recording when there is time.

Is it possible to contact Alex and ask him what coins/medals he worked on?     I stated ASH because past articles here said they were by Alex.....

Peter, I am glad to hear that you have recorded your conversations with him. I would love to read more stories about him, his inside view, and his involvement with MCC.

Incidentally, it's my intention that Marty Weiss will continue to be part of the numismatic community for years to come. He and I recorded hours of interviews on coins and coin-related subjects. These will be the raw material for future stories in China Pricepedia, CoinsWeekly and elsewhere, videos and maybe even a book. Almost as soon as we met I realized that his knowledge needed to be recorded, or it would be lost forever. So much of what he witnessed and participated in has never been published, or even revealed publicly. His inside view is often different from what the outside world saw and thought. I could go on and on — and I will. This thought made him happy.

Best wishes,
Peter Anthony

The dog has ASH on it about 7 o'clock.    It was posted here that is Alex.     Who knows?  Marty and Alex probably designed many Chinese or gave ideas for them.    Wish we had more info.....

What a nice article. He is one of the most important persons in modern Chinese coinage and should be remembered.

Peter, An award with his name, in honor of him? Just an idea.

I like the idea and will see what kind of support there is. Thanks.

FYI, Marty left money to establish an educational scholarship at the ANA and something else that I look forward to announcing later when it is complete.
