    Highly Coveted Piefort "Year of the Child" Proof Set

    People's Republic gold & silver "Year of the Child" Proof Piefort Set 1979, including the 35 Yuan and 450 Yuan, KM-P1 and KM-P2. Both are struck in double weight and thickness and are Gem Cameo Proof. The respective mintages are 2000 pieces and 500 pieces, the gold 450 Yuan being significantly more scarce. Both pieces remain in light plastic capsules, the silver exhibiting traces of cloudiness and a couple of minuscule surface marks, the gold 450 Yuan with fewer marks and more uniform color. A red-leatherette Cartier case is included along with an unnumbered COA from the retailer that originally marketed this set, rather than from the mint.

    The International Year of the Child was proclaimed in 1979 by UNESCO (The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) in support of UNICEF (The United Nations Children's Emergency Fund) on the 20th anniversary of the 1959 Declaration of the Rights of the Child. Its purpose was to draw attention to and raise funds for worldwide problems affecting children, such as malnutrition and difficulty in accessing education. Funds and awareness raised resulted ten years later in the Convention on the Rights of the Child, to which 196 countries are currently party.


    備受追捧的兒童年加厚版紀念幣一套2枚

    1979年聯合國國際兒童年紀念幣加厚版精製金銀幣。 包括35元銀幣及450元金幣,均為加厚版及Gem Cameo Proof。 發行量少,分別為2000枚及500枚,金幣更見罕有。兩枚幣均置於軟膠套內。其中銀幣略有霧化及表面有一些微小的擦痕。金幣瑕疵更少,色彩亦更均勻。附有紅色卡地亞人造革盒,有零售商而非鑄幣廠提供的無編號證書。聯合國將1979年定為國際兒童年,以支持聯合國兒童基金會(聯合國兒童緊急基金)於1959年發表兒童權利宣言20周年。該宣言明確了各國兒童應當享有的各項基本權利,其後聯合國大會決定制定一份具有法律效力的《兒童權利公約》,現獲得了196個國家的參與及認同。實屬中西現代金銀幣的名譽品。
