Champion Macau Auction Offers Rare Chinese Coins Certified by NGC
Posted on 11/21/2022
Over 100 rare and exquisite Chinese coins certified by Numismatic Guaranty Company™ (NGC®) are available in the 2022 Champion Macau Autumn Auction. Bidding is already underway online for the sale, being held in Macau, China on November 27, 2022.
The centerpiece of this sale is a China YR24 (1898) Anhwei Silver Dollar - Large Rosette graded NGC MS 65 and pedigreed to the NC Collection (lot 137), which has an estimate of $150,000 to $300,000. This is one of only 41 examples in the NGC Census, with only two of them graded higher. It comes from a renowned collection formed from some of the greatest rarities in Chinese provincial coinage.
Also available is a China 1923 Gold Dollar graded NGC UNC Details (lot 133) with an estimate of $100,000 to $200,000. The obverse shows Cao Kun, who was president of China from 1923 to 1924, until a coup forced him out after less than 13 months in power.
In May 2021, a Champion Macau auction of NGC-certified rarities from the NC Collection included two incredibly rare Chinese coins that sold for more than $1 million each: a YR3 (1911) Long Whiskered Dragon Silver Dollar graded NGC MS 64 and a YR33 (1907) Chihli Tael graded NGC MS 63. They realized $1.34 million and $1.1 million, respectively. (To learn more, click here.)
