CMC or MCC?
« on: January 23, 2012, 04:04:37 PM »
Something which has been puzzling me for a while. Is one more correct than the other?

Chinese Modern Coins or Modern Chinese Coins.

MCC seems to get used much more, but I personally never abbreviate it. I always write it as modern Chinese coins. If I were to abbreviate it, I'd probably get creative and confuse people more by calling it "mCc" :)

Oh, and I would abbreviate the word "abbreviation" as "abbr." just for gravy :)

The most commonly used Chinese expressions are: 中国现代金银币 or 中国现代纪念币.
中国 = Chinese
现代 = Modern
(金银)币 = (Gold and Silver) Coins
(纪念)币 = (Commemorative) Coins

My vote is to stick to the order of the country of origin and go with CMC: Chinese Modern Coins

Of course we could mix it up and choose a third option by going CCM...
Chinese Coins, Modern  :001_rolleyes:
