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.

A Snow-Covered Scene of Good Fortune and Happiness

Now you can be a part of the celebration with this 8-Gram Silver 2021 3 Yuan Chinese New Year Celebration coin. Why 8 grams? Because 8 is considered a very lucky number in Chinese culture. And since it’s struck in 99.9% fine silver, it’s also a lucky find for your collection, as it bears a new one-year-only design. The reverse presents the Chinese character “Fu,” meaning “good fortune and happiness” — a bit of well-wishing for you or the recipient of this coin — along with a design of a snow-covered village and the coin’s face value. The obverse displays the National Emblem of China.

Top Graded Coins Struck from New Dies

Plus, your 2021 China New Year Celebration Eight-Gram Silver Coin has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) in flawless Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded coin will have ZERO imperfections — showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. In addition, NGC has certified that your coin is a First Releases (FR) coin, a designation that means it was received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of its release. Collectors seek out these coins because they are produced with new dies and considered to have sharper strikes and deeper mirrors than those that are struck later.

To say this series is popular would be an understatement of epic proportions. While the mintage of 2 million coins seems like quite a sum, it’s actually 700,000 less than 2020’s mintage prompting coin experts to believe the 2021 release will be a quick sell-out! 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!
