The beauty of Yuan Shih Kai silver and gold coins^_^
« on: March 23, 2011, 02:44:41 AM »
Every coin collector who likes collect old chinese coins know how wanted they are right now in Numismatic World
and how much money you have to spend to get one each such of coin.
For me the most beautiful silver coins are Yuan Shih Kai silver coins.
Those pieces of silver are indeed very beautiful and popular among all coin collector.
But what makes Yuan Shih Kai silver coins are so popular nowadays?
The shape, design or maybe the bust of Yuan Shih Kai?
I guess everyone of us has different explanation why we all like collect these coins.
For me it is because of a unique varieties of those coins.
Every single detail, every small thing which looks different on the surface of each coin
make it special for me.
However some variety like L.Giorgi one, Gansu dollar with 2 chinese characters on obverse
or even a dollar with countermark: "Soviet" are still away from our reach
but it doesn't mean we don't dream about them :001_wub: that one day they will join to our collection.

Dear waterstone-2009,

Unfortunately, all of those coins in this post are not in my possession.
I found them from one of the auction house website from Beijing and I decided to post them to share with others:)
Old chinese silver coins from Republic of China period (1911-1949) are my favorites and Yuan Shih Kai silver and gold coins I like the most:)
I have some of them for sale and also in my private collection but not those the rarest: like 5 nickel YSK 1914 or 10 dollars 1919 gold coin.
Collecting old chinese silver coins are more difficult than collecting any other silver world coins.
It takes a lot of money and many years to complete your collection or even start a coin business like I did.

what a xxx collection. how long have you start to collect chinese coins?
