2017 China Confucius NGC PF70UCAM First Release 4pc Set
A Wise Piece for Your Collection!
In the sixth century, B.C., China was facing a complete upheaval of its social and political systems. Competing states were undermining the authority of the Chou Empire, which had held power for over half a millennium. This shift in power resulted in the deterioration of common principles and morality. Someone clearly needed to step into the role of teacher and philosopher, leading China into this new age. Enter Confucius.
An incredibly influential teacher and political figure, Confucius believed compassion and tradition were integral to China’s success. He believed deeply in a social philosophy based on "ren" -- loving others. To help others understand how to put this love into action, he touted the Golden Rule: "What you do not wish for yourself, do not do to others." Centuries later, his lessons continue to inspire positive change throughout the world.
To honor this incredibly important figure, the China Mint has struck these new Confucius proofs in 150 grams of 99.9% pure gold. They feature the famous Qufu Temple of Confucius, the largest temple of its kind. This 2,000 yuan legal-tender proof comes graded perfect Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70 UC) condition and certified as First Releases by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). Order yours now!
