CHINA. Dollar Struck in Gold, Year 9 (1920). NGC MS-64.
Exceptional Year 9 (1920) Yuan Shih-kai Dollar Struck in Gold
L&M-1092; K-1562; Wenchao-pg. 77#39 (rarity four stars). Off metal strike in gold from regular currency dies for the Yuan Shi-kai silver Dollar. This specially prepared off metal issue was struck for presentation purposes at the Tientsin mint. Very attractive rich golden surfaces, surprisingly free of marks. In our opinion conservatively graded.
Estimate: $100,000.00 - $150,000.00
