On my 2007 Kruase catelog, the 1987 HF has mintage of 4000. So far I got 4 sets of 1987, 3 from a Belgium dealer and 1 from a coin show. I don't think I have seen 1987 HF on eBay. I have never seen HL in double seal.

The strength (or lack of) of HF series reflects the strength of true collectors of MCC in China. Because HF are so widely dispured that they are out of the reach and manipulation of the capitalists in China. This is the erason that you don't HF price go crazy.

About 100 or so.  I watch the eBay auction, visited the big on-line dealers and occasionally track down promise leads on NGC's population photos.

I just look up the population stat again.  KK's population went from 48 in 8/19/2011 to 120 today!  The other historical figures did not experience this kind of growth.  I'll work on the updated spreadsheet and upload it shortly.

Today I visited Robert Mish at his store and we had a short but interesting conversation about his experience with historical figures coins. He was asking $700 for a set of 1992 HF coins, but only $350ish for the 1991 and 1990 series'. I asked him why he wanted so much for the 1992s and then I mentioned that 1989 (with Kublai Khan) was the key date series, looking for affirmation from him. He thought I was crazy. He affirmed that 1992 was in fact the key date for this series, and he also told me that at one time he personally had about 500 Kublai Khans, maybe even more. He said they were re-struck and sold individually. This goes against everything you guys believe about KK having the smallest mintage, doesn't it? Just thought you'd all be interested in hearing this interesting tidbit.

That's an interesting comment from Robert Mish.  I think the data I have support that, but only Kublai Khan is restruck.  The other 1989 hasn't shown much movement.

I don't think having 500 KK automatically implies abundance or restrike.  I'll show later tonight a one-time submission of 660 1993 Yin & Yang.  Yet it, for some reason, is the most pricy and hard-to-find one in the 1993 I&D.

I was thinking the same thing! Yes, there was a huge spike in KK submission, but has not that leveled off now?

KK growth rate was higher than the rest of 1989 series.  Its growth has slowed down lately but is still faster than other 1989 HF
