    Coveted Gold Dollar of Tsao Kun

    Republic Tsao Kun gold Specimen Dollar ND (1923) SP61 PCGS, KM-Pn67, K-1572, L&M-1126. A scarce presentation striking featuring the bust of Tsao Kun in civilian attire. Light handling throughout the fields is present and accounts for the grade, while a small coppery-tinged alloy spot is noted on the reverse. This piece is one of only six examples of this type that have been certified in Mint State by NGC or PCGS. Ever-popular, this offering presents an ideal opportunity for an enthusiast of Republic of China issues.

    Tsao Kun is notorious for having bribed members of the Beiyang Government Assembly with 5,000 Dollars each in his bid for the presidency, which he held from October 1923 to October 1924. One wonders whether any of these presentation pieces may have been intended as part of the bribes paid.


    令人羨慕的曹錕金章

    民國十二年(1923)曹錕像憲法成立紀念金章。SP61 PCGS,

    珍罕金製曹錕文裝像憲法成立紀念章。輕微流通,背面有小銅合金點。經NGC及PCGS評鑑得原廠狀態只有六枚,此為其一。非常熱門的民國錢幣系列,曹錕曾靠賄選而被選舉為第五任中華民國大總統,任期為1923年10月至1924年10月一年。有人懷疑此系列錢幣可能被作為賄賂的一部分。
