    Exceptional Large-Size Gold Unicorn

    People's Republic gold Proof Unicorn 500 Yuan (5 oz) 1994 PR68 Ultra Cameo NGC, Shenyang mint, KM684, PAN-NPB 2A, Cheng-pg. 155, 2, CC-596. Mintage: 99. One of the exceptional rarities of the Chinese Unicorn series, alongside the 2000 Yuan, this large-size golden gem is positively beaming with mirrorlike reflectivity and bold day-and-night contrasts between the fields and devices. Not the least trace of haze exists, suggesting that perhaps even a higher grade could be awarded. For the sake of completeness, we note that the Gold & Silver Coins of China, Standard Catalogue cites an actual mintage of 63 for the type, though this piece is clearly numbered 97 on the edge. Sold with the original case of issue and COA.

    大型麒麟金幣

    1994年麒麟系列500元精製金幣(5盎司)。PR68 Ultra Cameo NGC。 沈陽造幣廠。發行量:99枚。除2,000元之外,這是中國麒麟系列中稀有珍品之一,這枚大型金色瑰寶的正面反射出鏡面般的金光,在底板和圖案之間形成了鮮明的對比。沒有絲毫的瑕疵,這説明可以獲更高的評級。我們注意到,儘管此硬幣的邊緣清楚地標為97,但《中國金銀幣標準目錄》中的列出實際鑄幣量為63。此枚連原裝盒和證書一起出售。
