Description:
Extremely Rare Lucky Number 8 Year of the Horse Lunar Kilo 10,000 Yuan 2002
People's Republic of China Year of the Horse Proof Lunar gold Kilo 10,000 Yuan 2002, The obverse features the Da Zheng Hall of the Imperial Palace in Shenyang, while the reverse depicts two horses running left and the value, 100 mm, 32.146 oz., KM1427, Gem Ultra Cameo Proof, in the original hard plastic holder, sealed soft plastic mint package, and original polished hardwood case and box. Only 15 pieces were struck, all for export, of this amazing issue, and the example offered here is lucky number 8 of the 15. The number 8 is prominently displayed on the certificate, and also stamped in the edge of the coin (No 008) by the Shanghai Mint.

The number 8 is widely regarded as a universally lucky number in Chinese culture. We are currently in a 20 Year cycle of the number 8, which began in the lunar year of 2004 and will run through 2024. All 15 of the Kilo Lunar issues are rare, but there is only one number 8 for each issue.
