    Ultra Low Mintage Modern Rarity

    People's Republic gold Proof "Ancient Dragon Boat" 500 Yuan (5 oz) 1995 PR69 Ultra Cameo NGC,
    KM-A823, Fr-124. Mintage: 99. Simply stated, perhaps one of the greatest modern rarities in existence today. With a total mintage of 99 pieces, one can be assured that most collectors will never realize even a chance to compete for one on auction, much less possess an example that is certified just one point shy of utter perfection. The devices are struck to precise definition, every tower brick, dragon scale, and outline clearly displayed and dressed in beautiful satin luster. The fields, of no surprise given the grade, are of equal caliber, showing profound reflectivity and only the most minor signs of any handling, hardly discernible and certainly not distracting. In summary, a giant of modern numismatics, one which could hardly be exceeded in its combined force of rarity, beauty, and preservation. Comes with original black case of issue and Certificate of Authenticity.


    1995年龍舟圖500元精製金幣。PR69 Ultra Cameo NGC。 發行量僅99枚。這也許是至今僅存在的稀世現代幣之一。大多數收藏家甚至難有機會在拍賣會上爭奪一枚,更何況說擁有品相被評為近乎完美的一枚。圖案精緻,每塊塔磚、龍舟圖上的龍鱗和輪廓均清晰顯示,充滿華麗的緞面光澤。如評級所示,地章絕對出色,表現出深刻的反射,品相近乎完美。總而言之,這是一個現代錢幣學的巨人,極其稀有,其美麗和保存性幾乎前無古人,後無來者。附有原裝黑盒和證書#85。
