    Iconic "Dragon Boat" 500 Yuan

    People's Republic gold Proof "Ancient Dragon Boat" 500 Yuan (5 oz) 1995 PR69 Ultra Cameo NGC, KM-A823, Fr-124, CC-804. #36. With sources stating either 99 or 104 examples struck, the "Ancient Dragon Boat" 5 oz gold coin ranks among the most sought-after of modern Chinese issues. This demand is certainly a consequence of not only its rarity but also its impressive artistry, comprised of an extraordinarily detailed rendition of the dragon boat design juxtaposed with the iconic Great Wall of China reverse motif. In the elite grade here presented each of these details is expressed almost flawlessly, the silken golden texturing over the the devices admirable in its own right, exceptionally so when expressed in the context of symbolism inextricably linked to Chinese culture and history. The coin is sold with case and information guide and is tied for the finest of the type seen by NGC.
