Among the early scarcities of the modern commemorative China mint issues are the Piefort gold issues of the 1980 Olympiad. From a mintage of only 500 pieces, these were already a scarcity at the time of mintage, and remain a tangible reminder of the epic Olympic games of that year. The specimen being offered in our sale is graded Proof-69 Deep Cameo by PCGS and is accompanied by the original box and certificate.

The summer is here and with it the Stack’s Bowers & Ponterio August 2012 Hong Kong Auction. More than 2,200 lots will be presented across three beautiful catalogs and four days (Aug. 19-22) at the Mira Hong Kong. Within this auction collectors and buyers of all types will find fantastic rarities of Chinese coinage as well as rare and high grade offerings from all around Asia in coinage and paper money. In recent months we have highlighted some of these pieces in our Coin of the Week articles on the Stacks Bowers Galleries’ blog but those only scratch the surface of this immense and diverse sale.
