Done and dusted with these Chinese coin collection
« on: June 09, 2012, 05:55:47 PM »
This has been an extremely tough challenge and perhaps the only coin that I'm missing is a rather pricey Chinese-Soviet crown coin. For now, I'm very happy with this

http://www.gxseries.com/numis/china/china_province.htm

Some highlights in this collection are here:

Yunnan-Sichuan



Chinese-Soviet (Jiangxi Soviet)



Qingdao (German colony at one stage)



Guizhou antimony coin - rather unusual material



Here's one thing I would say - I am very lucky that I started this coin collection at the start of the mad Chinese price hike and some of these coins have easily tripled by now. Some are even unobtainable no matter how much I want to fork out for instance the antimony coin, which pretty much appears on auction markets once in a blue moon.

Not a set that I can create a duplicate anytime or attempt another similar set...

Congratulations. First time ever I see a Chinese Soviet coin outside a catalogue. The antimony coin is so weird, you have to love it. Fortunately, I can't afford it. The Kiautschou series always reminds me of Tsingtao beer, which I can afford (the beer, not the coin.)
