Hello from GreatCollections
« on: March 29, 2014, 08:37:14 PM »
Hi -

I just joined - to hopefully participate in some threads about Chinese coins.

We run weekly coin auctions, including Chinese coins, based out of Irvine, California (about a mile from PCGS).

1995 China 5oz gold unicorn, PCGS PR69Dcam, sold for $55,000+19.5% at the Stacks & Balwin auction in Kowloon this afternoon.  The same coin in a 67 sold for $24,000+19.5%.  So, condition does matter.  In reality, the mintage is 99 and both coins were exceptionally beautiful and in excellent condition.  For many coins, the difference between a 67 and a 69 is minimal.  Both of these large gold unicorn coins would be excellent additions to every collection.

It's unusual that so many are on the market at the same time.  Mintage is so low.

The 67 sold in HK was #99.

Welcome to the forum.

The hammer price for the 1995 5 oz gold unicorn was $59,250.00.


About 1/2 of what it sold for at the end of 2011 and surely a better buy now.

Best wishes,
