    One of Only 5 Specimen-Certified Examples

    Republic Hsu Shih-chang gold Specimen Pattern "Pavilion" Dollar Year 10 (1921) SP58 PCGS, Tientsin mint, KM-Pn62, L&M-1093, Kann-1570, WS-0067, Wenchao-40 (rarity 4 stars). Reeded edge. An extremely rare pattern type, produced to commemorate General Hsu Shih-chang's 3-year tenure as President of the Republic, as well as to commemorate the Chinese Republic's 10th anniversary and the President's 67th birthday. Reportedly struck as souvenir pieces for presentation to high officers of state, these exceedingly scarce gold issues are even more elusive in specimen grades, with a mere 5 examples awarded the designation by PCGS. While exhibiting some light handling that keeps it from Mint State, this pattern shows a clear specimen level of execution, replete with watery surfaces and medallic detail to the devices, making it a clear target for serious collectors.


    民國十年(1921)徐世昌像紀念金樣幣。SP58 PCGS。 天津造幣廠。文曹(稀有度四星級別)。齒邊。極為罕見的一枚,為紀念徐世昌將軍擔任共和國總統三年,並紀念中華民國成立十週年和總統六十七歲生日而鑄。據資料顯示,這些幣是鑄而送贈高級官員的紀念品,獲評級的金樣幣更是獨特罕見,獲PCGS評級僅有五枚。少許痕跡令其無法得到原廠狀態的評分,但此枚顯示出樣幣鑄造的高超水平,細節尖銳清晰,定會成為資深收藏者的競投目標。
