Thanks Pocopenn, this is good info.  I was unaware of the limited distribution - I had no idea that so few sets were earmarked for the USA.  Maybe I'm a little guilty of USA-centric thinking and just assumed a large proportion would come here.   Much appreciated!

The auspicious culture is a new series of MCC issued by China Mint, starting 2015. Same as the previous series, the third series (2017) consists of four different themes; celebration of birthday of parent and grandparent (五福拱寿), issued date 3/22/17; celebration of new baby (瓜瓞绵绵), issued date 4/20/17; celebration of wedding (并蒂同心) issued date 5/18/17, celebration of New Year (年年有余), issued date 6/19/17.
 
The mintage is the same, 30,000 for gold and 60,000 for silver. However, the weight of gold coin is decreased to 5 gm vs, 8 gm last year and denomination changes from 100 Yuan to 80 Yuan.
