    Marvelous and Fleeting Gold Pattern

    Kuang-hsü 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 simply stunning honey-gold example of a never utilized pattern Tael, boasting a razor sharp strike most evident in the wire rimming, and subtly reflective surfaces that entice the eye to stay for a prolonged and satisfying gaze. A transcendant offering whose addition would certainly propel its owner's cabinet to a world class tier.
    Ex. Zhu H.J. Collection


    光緒丙午年造(1906)大清金幣一兩樣幣。 MS63 NGC。 天津造幣廠造,光邊。於光緒三十二年(1906年)正式試鑄,幣面中央有楷書"大清金幣"四字,上端有"光緒丙午年造",下端有"庫平一兩"字樣,背有蟠龍,四周繞以雲紋。大清金幣後來因清政府藏金不足及金本位制未立而未有發行,存世僅見丙午、丁未年號樣幣。存世量少,可見其珍貴程度。令人驚嘆的蜜金色的一枚佳品,一兩上從未使用過的圖案,展示了明顯的鑄打,高反射表面,足以吸引眼球。 超卓的一枚定,必令收藏家的收藏系列達致世界級。

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