    A Second Amazing Anhwei Dollar

    Anhwei. Kuang-hsu Dollar Year 24 (1898) MS66 NGC, Anking mint, KM-Y45.2, L&M-204, Kann-53a. This is the variety with small obverse rosettes. A remarkable example of this rare Dollar issue. The strike is quite bold, with shimmering mint luster. A touch of golden patina around the peripheries adds to the extraordinary appearance of this dazzling coin. All Anhwei silver coins are very scarce, as the mint in Anking was closed after little more than one year and the new mint, opened about three years after closing of the original mint, produced only copper coins. It is difficult to describe the amazing appearance of this splendid coin, therefore one must see this example in person, or study it carefully on our web site. Needless to say, none have been certified finer. This piece is the example pictured in Michael Chou's book, "Top Chinese Coins-Silver Coinage," and listed on page 136 as #45. We can reference no example of an MS66 coin of this type having been sold in a previous auction. A rare opportunity to acquire the very best. We do find that we have sold an MS63 example, of this type, in our December 2016 Hong Kong auction, lot 37030. This piece sold for a hammer price of $30,000.


    光緒二十四年(1898)安徽省造光緒元寶七錢二分銀幣。MS66 NGC,
    安慶造幣廠。扁"四",小星花版別。龍銀中經典的一枚,廣受收藏家的歡迎。大膽、深峻的壓印,充沛的原廠光澤,令人賞心悅目。外圍的金黃絲緞包漿使這醉人的外觀更為非凡吸引。安慶造幣廠只運行了約一年多便關閉。新幣廠於三年後才開始營運,並只鑄造銅幣,促使所有的安徽省造銀幣十分稀缺,一幣難求!這枚美妙絕倫的銀幣品相出眾卓越,難以用筆墨所形容。有興趣的藏家必須親自閱覽實物,或仔細查看網上圖片。不容置疑,這是已認證的同品種中評級最高的一枚。 2016年12月份拍賣中我們$30,000美元售出了MS63分的一枚(拍品 37030)。但我們亦難以從過往的銷售紀錄中估算這枚極高品相的MS66分銀幣的價值。今次絕對是千載難逢的機會讓眾藏家去收藏這枚彌足珍貴的一枚。

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
