China Imperial & Republic / Re: Hot market for older chinese coins?
« Last post by pandamonium on August 12, 2018, 06:15:00 PM »
My knowledge is very limited to some reading and what i see for sale or sold on ebay.       It is interesting to see who is bidding (that are private bidders) and what they bid on.      Ebay says "private listing-bidder's identity protected".     Sellers and others say most of these are Chinese bidders.         I have posted on badon's site about the small silver dragons mostly Kwangtung 10C & 20 C or Yunnan 50 C or Sun Yat Sen for about 2 plus years.      These small Empire silvers are affordable for my collector group and the silver dollar market took off long ago.     Prices for these small silver dragons/Sun Yat Sen are up and few are 99 cent auctions to start.      Today i see Chinese bidders on these small dragons and they did not bid in the past.     Supply is low?      I also see many bids for most all early year Vintage coins even in poor condition and not silver.     Once in a while a "cleaned" or detail small dragon will sell for under $15 to $20.     Due to rising prices i tell my friends to bid on ANACS and ICG too as both are good graders.    Any other opinions on these 2 graders?         I think inventory is getting very low and demand from China for Vintage is growing....

Since no one who is experienced with the older Chinese coins responded, I guess I'll have to make an independent decision.  I spent some time looking at current NGC census data and compiled a few screenshots for several of the coins I have (see attached).  I compared it to the data for one of the "key dates" of the US Morgan Silver Dollar, the 1893S.  Wow, I am struck by the scarcity of the old China silver dollars.  Yes, I know that people have been grading the old China coins for a shorter amount of time, but with numerous fakes for coins like the Kweichow auto dollar, there is extreme incentive to get the authentic coins graded in order to sell. 

Another consideration is that the 1893S, looks just like the other morgan dollars except for the date and the mint mark, the Auto Dollar, the 1908 Y-14 dollar, and others have distinctive and interesting designs.  They also have some very interesting stories https://www.money.org/blog/1928AutoDollar

My conclusion.  For the moment, I am going to hold on to my better China silver dollars.  The coins have appreciated in price over the past ten years, and there is a temptation to take some gains.  And, we may be in for some downs and ups in the market, but I like my chances on the 10-20 year horizon.

Instead, I trimmed some of my holdings in the stock market this week to steady myself for any turmoil in the world financial markets.  I'm still curious what others people are thinking regarding the older china coins, as they are not my specialty, and I have much to learn.

論壇首發…..1911站洋截圖…..真假對照
1.   平滑的幣面圖文,沒有真的可能。
2.   幣面瑕疵成因的分析,絕對有助於錢幣真假的判斷。
3.   大致相同大不同,判斷真假的線索就藏在細節裡。
4.   比較真假幣…刀鑿痕、立體感、防偽暗記、包漿漸層。
5.   教育是抑假揚真最根本的手段。
