    Description

    Republic Yuan Shih-kai gold 10 Dollars Year 8 (1919) MS63 NGC, Tientsin mint, KM-Y330. L&M-1030, Kann-1531. Struck in 1919 during the brief revival of a plan to reintroduce gold coinage. The plan never fully materialized however, with essentially all of the small allotment of 10 and 20 dollar pieces struck quickly vanishing from circulation. Even so, it seems most were not carefully kept, and survivors often show surface scratches or evidence of harsh cleaning. This example has avoided such perils however, retaining vibrant gleam in the fields, sharp design elements and surfaces that hold little handling. Light toning flecks are scattered over the obverse, but none dominate the appearance. This is our first offering of any kind in over 8 years and it ranks as the second finest we've ever presented; as such, this coin should certainly be the beneficiary of significant pent-up enthusiasm.

    民國八年(1919)袁世凱像拾圓金幣。MS63 NGC。
    天津造幣廠。於1919年在短暫進行的引入金幣計劃中所鑄造。然而,由於這個計劃沒有得到完全實現,所有當時已鑄的拾元及貳拾圓均很快便從流通貨幣中回收。同款倖存於世者甚少,即使有所發現亦往往伴有明顯的刮花或嚴重清洗痕跡。這一枚避免了以上的情況,唯深刻的壓花及從充滿活力的原光中能看到輕微的痕跡。淡淡包漿分散於正面,但不影響其吸引的外觀。這是我們超過八年以來首次經手的一枚,定必引起一番龍爭虎鬥。
