GUANYIN MEDALLIC SET. ANY INFO?
« on: October 17, 2015, 10:49:22 PM »
Hi!  Long time!

Asking for a friend:  Chinese medallic Guanyin set, 30 oz plus (8) 30 g medals.

Any info would be appreciated.......where/when???

I know what I am seeing, I'm just poking the collective hive here, on their behalf.

THANKS!

Welcome back. It has been a long time.

I will take a guess. Since there is nowhere to suggest this set is made with silver, most likely, this is a silver plated set made by a private mint recently and with a limited value. All designs of small (30gm) medals were copied from Guanyin sets issued by China Mint between 1995-1999. I do collect Guanyin coins and medals issued by China Mint, but have never seen this set before.
