« on: October 14, 2012, 10:22:51 AM »
No photos of mine yet so here is the link.  1992 Vancouver silver dragon tael 37.8g.   Is this bullion or are there collectors for this silver coin?   RCM minted this?  How many were minted?   :confused1:Great design...........

Seller got back to me.  This is one coin of a 4 coin series.  Vancouver Tael, Hong Kong Tael, Taiwan Tael, and Shangha Tael.   They were designed by a company in Hong Kong and minted at their mint, American National Mint in Los Angeles (I think LA)  One of the very few non China mint coins I have seen that is worthy of being a MCC.  The design is outstanding but value is probably a small premium above bullion.  It probably sells mostly in Hong Kong.  Great design...........

I have the set of all 4 coins (I believe). I will post a picture some time soon, after I dig them out of my dungeon.
