1998 Dr Norman Bethune Silver Medal Set
« on: November 15, 2015, 02:12:15 AM »
1998 Dr Norman Bethune Commemorative Silver Medal Set. Minted in honor of this Canadian physician who developed medical care systems that saved lives in three wars including one war in China where he died after one year. I understand that he is loved and revered in China. One coin of the set was minted in Canada and the other in China. 80,000 pieces (?40,000 sets) minted. Fineness = .9999 or 99.99%. I have noticed that the Chinese coin of the set has rim toning unlike the Canadian coin. Each coin is proof mint 1oz and has a 10 Yuan denomination.
