Description:
Dramatic Dragon Boat Cameo
People's Republic Dragon Boat gold Proof 500 Yuan 1995, KM-A823, Fr-124, Proof 68 Ultra Cameo NGC. Edge Numbered: 02. Mintage: 99. One of the most captivating issues from the 5-coin ancient maritime commemorative series, the design renders the Dragon Boat in incredible detail with hundreds of scales on the dragon and the pagoda at the ship's center displaying impressive architectural accuracy. On the other side, the Great Wall of China sits in impressive frosted splendor. The mintage of this piece obviously makes it rare, but a lack of sales records within the past several years also highlights its desirability with examples obviously being closely held by collectors. As such, we anticipate this opportunity will be eagerly anticipated, as this certainly stands out as chance to acquire a collection centerpiece and a lasting heirloom.
