A Choice Plain Edge 1906 Gold Kuping Tael

Empire gold Pattern Kuping Tael (Liang) CD 1906 MS63 NGC, Tientsin mint, Kann-1540, L&M-1023, KM-Pn301, plain edge. Obv. Four Chinese characters within a beaded ring standing for, "Ta Ching Gold Coin," in the outer circle above are six Chinese characters translating as,  "Made (during) the Kuang Hsu (regime) in the year of Bing Wu (1906)," in the outer circle below are four Chinese characters translating as, "Kuping (weight)  1 Tael." Rev. Large dragon entirely surrounded by clouds. A choice example, with attractive greenish-gold patina, fully lustrous, minimally marked surfaces, and well defined features. The overall appearance is exceptional for the grade.

The Kuping Taels of 1906 and 1907 were struck strictly as patterns, never meant for general circulation. It is possible that this type was planned to be issued as a silver coin, but this plan was never realized. The few remaining patterns are among the great rarities of Chinese numismatics.
