    Rarely Encountered Peacock 500 Yuan

    People's Republic gold Proof Peacock 500 Yuan (5 oz) 1993 PR68 Ultra Cameo NGC, Shanghai mint, KM600, Cheng-pg. 139, 2, CC-542. Mintage: 102. Only the second example of this major series rarity we have handled, and only the third that we have been able to locate coming to auction in recent years. Standing as the second largest denomination in the gold peacock series, just behind the virtually unattainable 1500 Yuan, this splendid 500 Yuan features an exceptional cameo contrast, with only some minor copper spotting likely precluding a higher technical grade; of the just 29 pieces seen to-date by NGC none have yet been awarded with technical perfection. The present offering comes with its original case of issue and COA #56, and is correspondingly stamped with the same serial number on the edge.

    極罕「孔雀開屏」500元

    1993年「孔雀開屏」500元精製金幣(5盎司)。PR68 Ultra Cameo NGC。
    上海造幣廠。發行量僅102枚。此珍貴的一枚我們僅經手過一次,亦是近年拍賣會上所見的第三枚,稀有程度如滄海遺珠。作為孔雀金幣系列中的第二大面額,僅次於幾乎無法觸及的1500元,這枚燦爛的金幣具有與眾不同的浮雕對比,只有少量的銅斑點限制其達至更高等級。迄今為止,NGC只評過29枚,但沒有任何一枚可達至頂級狀態。原盒連證書出售,編號56,與在幣邊的序列號相同。
