    Razor-Sharp Choice Mint State "Dragon & Phoenix" Dollar

    Republic silver Pattern "Dragon & Phoenix" Dollar Year 12 (1923) MS63 NGC, Tientsin mint, KM-Y336.1, L&M-80, Kann-680a, WS-0113, Wenchao-884 (rarity 2 stars). Large characters variety. A well-known issue in Chinese numismatics and a highly sought-after series due to its absolute rarity as well as aesthetic appeal. A sublime offering to say the least, attractively styled and sensitively rendered, the general flatness of the metallic fields lending to further pronounce the central motifs for which this series is aptly named. Featuring the notably scarcer large characters above razor-sharp depictions of two national symbols, the dragon and phoenix, and decorated in charming pastel hues shimmering throughout. The reverse boasts a more pronounced cartwheel luster dancing across golden surfaces, contributing significantly to the superior eye appeal of this coin.

    NOTE: This lot was manufactured in China and was sourced from outside the United States for this auction after September 1, 2019. Under the new US tariffs on Chinese goods, collector's items from China will be subject to a 7.5% import tariff.
