    Choice 1923 Dragon & Phoenix Gold Dollar

    Republic gold Pattern "Dragon & Phoenix" Dollar Year 12 (1923) MS64 NGC, Tientsin mint, KM-Pn70, L&M-1096a, Kann-1575. Variety with value in small characters. Obv. Unadopted national emblem of Dragon and Phoenix. Rev. Value within wreath. Nearly mark-free, with a few very minor hairlines preventing this piece from Gem certification. The fields are fully mirrored, with bold strike on both the obverse and reverse. Both sides display even gold-orange patina with superb eye-appeal. Long thought to have been struck for the wedding of Pu Yi, it has been determined that this piece is actually a trial issue for the unadopted new national emblem. Given its sublime beauty and great rarity in gold, this type understandably ranks among the most coveted items from the early Republic of China period.

    極品小字版龍鳳壹圓金樣幣

    民國十二年(1923)龍鳳壹圓金樣幣。MS64 NGC。 天津造幣廠。小字版。正面:龍鳳國徽;背面:花圈內帶面值。幾乎沒有瑕疵,保存為珍品狀態。全鏡面底板,雙面壓印深峻,呈金橘色,極為吸睛。經常被誤認為溥儀結婚紀念幣,後被確定為新國徽試驗幣。鑑於其令人驚訝的品相和極為罕見的黃金所鑄,為民國初期最令人垂涎的款式之一。出自:W&B Capital Collection
