Thanks poconopenn,

that means im right, one yuan is PL and the other MS?
Because there was a thread here, that the PL Emblem is frosted.
I have though that the PL are only at the 4 coin set like this:

But pherhaps they have take the worst quality coins for BU-Set...

I think my PL (if that is correct?) is just a MS66 PL, the other MS Yuan could be much better. That means when the grade is higher, the coin is more expensive.
A MS69 can coast here 3.850$

If i sold a set and want to take the more valuable, i should hold the better MS?

Thanks

Yes, you should check all coins in the set. Coin in the set with the potential to be graded as 68 or better will be the most valuable coin in the set, not MS 66PL 1 Yuan.

A couple of notes:

1. PL is still MS.
2. The PL designation has strict definitions. PCGS would grade a MS coin as PL if the field reflects objects 2-4 inches away. Unless you have a lot of experience, looking through a plastic pouch only would not give you a reliable clue about whether it is PL or not.
3. To be designated as PL, both sides of the coin have to be PL. I have a 1980 Great Wall One Yuan that has a very reflective field on one side, but was not graded as PL because the other side is not as reflective. The emblem on my coin is also frosted.

There are many varieties to be discovered in fen coins, even in those sets. Make sure the coins in your sets have identical design. The surface differences just one of the varieties. Many varieties have not recognized by grading companies yet. For example, there are large and small stars versions for 1980 5 Fen coin.
