Chinese Provincial Coinage on the Rise
May 21, 2008

Chinese Provincial Hunan Dollar

As I mentioned in earlier postings, Chinese Provincial coinage has been on the rise for at least a year now. Interest increased first for the milled silver coinage and has since spread to the copper cast cash coins.

With the help of some of our dedicated contributing experts, I have been updating prices in the 19th and 20th Century listings for various Chinese Provinces on NumisMaster and for the Standard Catalog series. Today, I thought I would mention one specific price increase instituted in the province of Hunan. The coin is the largest 20th Century denomination for Hunan, One Dollar, struck in silver and cataloged as Y#404. Values for this type have risen by about 50% driving uncirculated examples from $1850 up to $2800.

For the most current coin data, coin values, color images of coins and new issue listing, check out NumisMaster on the Internet. It's the best place to keep up with what's going on in the world of coins.
