    Extremely Rare Premium Gem 1897 Anhwei Dollar

    Anhwei. Kuang-hsu Dollar ND (1897) MS66 NGC, Anking mint, KM-Y45, L&M-195, Kann-49. A truly immaculate coin. The strike is superb and the gleaming lustrous surfaces display a touch of golden patina. No mentionable flaws are noted and the overall appearance is stunning. One of the great condition rarities of the Provincial Chinese Dollars, with a total of only seven pieces certified in Mint State by NGC and PCGS combined. This is by far the finest example, with one other piece certified in MS64 and the other 5 Mint State examples are MS61-63. We do not hesitate to state that we feel this piece is the finest known UNC 1897 example, certified, or uncertified.

    The mint in Anking operated only from 1897-1899, with Dollars struck only in 1897 & 1898. There are no records of coin production from the Anking mint, but the rarity of Mint State coins, for the 1897 issue, would tend to make one think the mintage is very small. The only Anhwei Dollar in equivalent condition to this coin is a MS66 example of the more available 1898 Dollar. This beautiful coin was sold by Champion Auctions in their November 30, 2014 Macau auction for $112,000, including the buyer's fee.


    1897年安徽省造光緒元寶七錢二分銀幣。 MS66 NGC。
    安慶造幣廠。一個真正完美的錢幣,精湛壓印,閃閃發光的光澤表面上展現出一絲金色包漿。毫無缺陷,整體外觀令人驚嘆。中國省份錢幣系列中最為出色的其中之一,經NGC及PCGS評得只有7枚達到原廠狀態,這是7枚中最高分的一枚,另一枚評得MS64,另外5枚分別評得MS61-63。我們並不否認此幣為1897年出產中評分最高的一枚。出自:W&B Capital Collection

    安慶造幣廠於1897-1899年間營運,但只在1897及1898兩年間鑄幣。對於鑄幣數量並沒有記載,但從1897年所鑄原廠錢幣看來,鑄造數量必定非常微少。唯一可媲美此幣的只有1898年所鑄 MS66 的錢幣。曾於2014年11月30日在澳門的拍賣會上出現,當時以美元112,000成交。
