Feng Yunming and Early Semi-Official Medals
« on: May 09, 2013, 02:10:13 AM »
I just posted on some early "oddball" MCC medals on my blog: http://modern-chinese-numismatic-info.blogspot.com/2013/05/feng-yunming-and-early-semi-official.html. As there are many pictures, I am not going to repeat it here. It will help identify some Chinese medals which pop up on eBay now and then.

You are welcome. It was partly for you because you have been picking up some medals. This information is obscure even among average Chinese collectors, as there are only a couple of posts on them. As the medals are not official, they are not in the catalogs by China Gold Coins Co. Collecting their data proves even more difficult than the early coins. Does this mean a gold mine? Probably. The Hong Kong Archaeological Findings silver set had a asking price of USD4000 on jibi.net in China a couple of years ago, but was recently sold on eBay for less than USD600. For those willing to take some risk and having patience, these medals may be rewarding in the end.
