Thanks for the info Poconopen!.
The prices for the 1 feng coin on the website you referred to makes me jump of you. A few nights ago I thought I had struck the jack pot. Now it seem like I should be happy for every bid exceeding 80 cents  N16

Sorry for the misstake. Meant of course "joy" not "you" as posted earlier.

Hello Collectors,

If you wouldnt mind I need some help.
I just bought a complete set of "Coins of All Nations" and these China sets are a bit confusing.
Can you tell me which ones are the rare ones? I see some for $1000, others for $50.

I have attached some scans.

Thank you in advance,

Emil

5 fen 1981 is probably PROOF and rare one. As those were made outside of PRC, some coins included are now quite rare, and this set is much better and therefore expensive than majority on the market.

That 1981 5 fen is a proof coin, a rare one as well. Actually the business strike 5 fen from 1981 is even rarer and more expensive.

The confusion of these Chinese Coins of All Nations sets is due to Franklin Mint putting assorted coins together. Some are very rare, like the 1981 and 1982 proof sets. They can fetch $1000. Business strikes from some common years are not worth that much, thus the pricing difference.

It is better to have it graded before you can get an accurate quote.

Im going to sell it as is.
But I would grade it PF65-66. Hard to tell through the plastic. But no less than 65.

I would personally pay $200-300 for 5 fen 1981 coin. As it was stated above, official 1981 PROOF set is worth about $1000 and it contains two rare coins, 1 and 5 fens, all other PROOF coins are also worth smth about $70-100 a coin. In your set besides 5 fen 2 jiao coin has also some value. It is hard to predict for what the set will sell, but the range might be $300-500. I would try to start with $300 and see if it sells.

I am new to posting on this forum but have read through this thread may times in the last few years.  I purchased a flat rate closed box at an estate auction in 1994 and it contained a collection of Chinese fen, all of them 2 fen except for one 1 fen (1983).  I have coins from 1961-1985 with many duplicates and also missing some years.  I've attached a few photos and was wondering if anyone can give me advice about valuating the coins - should I take them to a local international coin dealer and see what they know?  Or would my best bet be a larger coin show in Atlanta?  I am curious if any of them are worth sending in for valuation by PCGS or if they are just common low-grade coins.  I can also post clearer pictures if needed.

I appreciate any opinions  :001_smile:

Thanks,
J
