Revered in ancient times, "shufa," or calligraphy, captivates modern China and keeps a new coin series flying off dealer shelves.

What is special about the 2018 and 2019 Calligraphy Coins is not that they employ calligraphy; many coins use calligraphic characters to convey their message. The coins stand out because it is the shufa, the calligraphy, itself that is the subject. What the writing says, or means, is secondary.
