Hi Frank,

Thanks. Interesting.

So do the coins mentioned all have both circulating and proof issues?

Aside form features like the coins finish, are there any other ways to distinguish between Proof and circulating? Any distinguising marks?

Those are all circulating and proof. Some of the later proofs did have "J"  on the edge, to indicate "proof', but not these early proof coins.

I am glad you found the post interesting.

Mr. Sun wrote his article in 2006 prior to the discovery of the existence of Shanghai version of 1984 35th anniversary of the founding of PRC in 2007. IMO, this Cu-Ni proof coin is one of the top 5 key coins in the proof circulated commemorative series (total 68 coins from 1984 to 2014, pattern not included).

In his latest book, the 4 top rarities remain the same, with the 1986 Great Wall added, which is not a commemorative coin set. The Shanghai version of 1984 35th anniversary of the founding of PRC is added to the "minor rarities", right at the bottom of the list.

Dandan's post on the 1997 Auspicious Matters silver coin is posted at: http://modern-chinese-numismatic-info.blogspot.com/2014/07/dandans-comments-on-chinese-coins-7.html. There is an interesting recount of the 1997 coin market collapse in China.

This coin was cursed by speculators in more ways than one.
Thank you Frank for another insight into the world of Chinese numismatics.

There's a saying that goes, "you can't have your coins arranged as a cake and eat it."  :001_tt2:
