    Untouched Low-Mintage Unicorn 500 Yuan - 108 Produced

    People's Republic gold Proof Unicorn 500 Yuan (5 oz) 1996, KM949, Cheng- pg. 207, 2. Mintage: 108. Serving as one of the instantly recognizable motifs in modern Chinese coinage, the Unicorn series has become widely popular amongst collectors, with lower mintage issues taking on a particular distinction and importance in the collecting community. The 1996 500 Yuan is near the apex when it comes to such status, seeing a mintage of only 108 examples in total. Of this small number one must wonder how many specimens remain sealed in the original capsule and vinyl, as is the case with this pristine piece, maintained in the same condition it was made in over two decades ago. The fields, offering dazzling reflectivity, contrast perfectly against frosted devices, resulting in an appearance that would doubtlessly earn the coin a "Deep" or "Ultra" cameo contrast were it to be certified. The offering is sold with black display case and accompanied by the original Certificate of Authenticity.

    發行量僅108枚的500元麒麟金幣

    1996年麒麟系列500元精製金幣(5盎司)。
    發行量108枚。作為最具代表性的中國現代金銀幣之一,麒麟系列早在收藏家中廣為流行,鑄幣發行量低者尤甚。此幣只發行了108枚,以其狀態看來已算是接近最高點。在這麼少的數量中,我們多少會懷疑到底還有多少枚仍是封存於原始的膠套及木盒中,唯從這枚已存在二十多年的錢幣看來,其狀態仍然令人驚訝地完好。炫目的閃亮反射底板與磨砂圖文形成了完美的對比,其外觀無疑使硬幣獲得「深」或「超」浮雕對比度的認證。與黑色展示盒一起出售,並附有原廠證書。
