2019 Beijing Exhibition Silver Koala
China’s largest and most influential coin show is the Beijing International Coin Exposition (BICE). Since 1995, more than 500,000 visitors have attended the expo. In 2019, BICE was held at the China National Convention Center from November 15 through the 17th —and struck just for the event was this Silver Koala & Asian Ibis Proof, limited to just 30,000 pieces.
Struck in 30 grams of highly pure 99.9% fine silver, this piece is a highly coveted coin for many reasons, not the least of which is its design that is an amalgam of popular Chinese and Australian coins. The combined design of China’s Endangered Wildlife-Crested Ibis silver coin and Australia’s 2019 Koala silver coin on the reverse makes for a must-have coin for collectors of both series. The added inscription of “BEIJING INTERNATIONAL COIN EXPOSITION” in Chinese and English on the reverse paired with the obverse design that depicts the Beijing International Coin Exposition logo identifies the coin’s origins and limited-edition status.
What makes this commemorative coin even more special in that it is 10 Yuan official legal tender in China. Most pieces released at shows like this are commemorative medals — NOT legal tender, adding a further degree of collectability to this coin. Getting our hands on these wasn’t easy, and we only managed to secure 100 of these hot coins for our customers. They’re being offered on a first-come, first-served bases, so get yours now!
