I may be out of my depth here, but as far as I can tell this article (http://www.jb008.cn/coin/article_view.asp?id=698) is primarily about the history of distribution of Chinese Mint coins. It indicates that post-2000 the Chinese Mint gained greater control over distribution. However, I couldn't find a mention of restrikes – just a list of foreign distributors for various series. Is there another article on this topic somewhere else? Thanks for any clarification.

I rearranged the tables listed in the article. Here are the restrike mintage from 2003 to 2005:
