Get These Chinese New Year Coins Now Before They’re All Gone!
China’s New Year celebration begins February 12, 2021, and rings in the Year of the Ox. Also referred to as the Spring Festival, it’s a major Chinese holiday marked by a number of traditions, including the gifting of “lucky” money.
Now you can be a part of the celebration with a 10 Yuan coin struck in one gram of 99.9% gold paired with a 3 Yuan coin struck in eight grams of 99.9% silver, both from the China Mint’s 2021 New Year Celebration series. The silver coin is lucky because the number “8” is considered a very lucky number in Chinese culture. But what really makes this set lucky is the inclusion of the gold coin — the FIRST-EVER one-gram gold coin in this immensely popular series!
A Snow-Covered Scene of Good Fortune and Happiness
The one-year-only reverse design of each coin presents the Chinese character “Fu,” meaning “good fortune and happiness” — a bit of well-wishing for you or the recipient of these coins — along with a design of a snow-covered village and each coin’s face value. The common obverse displays the National Emblem of China. Plus, your 2021 China Gold & Silver New Year Celebration Two-Piece Set will arrive displayed inside a colorful Chinese New Year booklet that also protects the coins.
To say this series is popular would be an understatement of epic proportions. While the mintage of 2 million silver coins seems like quite a sum, it’s actually 700,000 less than 2020’s mintage. And the first-ever one-gram gold coin has a mintage of just 100,000. These mintage totals have prompted coin experts to believe these coins will quickly sell-out at the mint! We were fortunate to score a few hundred coins from the mintage and are making them available on a first-come, first-served basis while our supply lasts. So, don’t wait, secure yours now!
