    Iconic "Dragon Boat" 500 Yuan

    People's Republic gold Proof "Ancient Dragon Boat" 500 Yuan (5 oz) 1995 PR69 Ultra Cameo NGC, KM-A823, Fr-124, CC-804. #36. With sources stating either 99 or 104 examples struck, the "Ancient Dragon Boat" 5 oz gold coin ranks among the most sought-after of modern Chinese issues. This demand is certainly a consequence of not only its rarity but also its impressive artistry, comprised of an extraordinarily detailed rendition of the dragon boat design juxtaposed with the iconic Great Wall of China reverse motif. In the elite grade here presented each of these details is expressed almost flawlessly, the silken golden texturing over the the devices admirable in its own right, exceptionally so when expressed in the context of symbolism inextricably linked to Chinese culture and history. The coin is sold with case and information guide and is tied for the finest of the type seen by NGC.


    1995年龍舟圖500元精製金幣(5盎司)。PR69 Ultra Cameo NGC。 編號為36。至今僅存在的稀世現代幣之一。資料顯示此幣發行僅99或104枚。龍舟圖5盎司金幣是最爲受追捧的中國現代幣之一。此幣種需求高的原因不僅在於其稀有程度,更是因爲其高超的工藝。龍舟圖上的細節清晰飽滿,與背面具代表性的長城圖案相得益彰。此幣獲高評分,細節鮮明無瑕,金黃色絲綢質感圖文浮雕令人贊嘆,充分體現中國歷史文化的深遠悠長。目前為NGC所見過的最佳例子。附膠套及説明書。
