NGC Registry Featured Set: China Silver 1 Kilo Coins

Posted on 7/11/2023

This month’s featured set belongs to newlinter.

Lunar calendar coins hold a fascination for many collectors all over the world. China produces countless different versions of lunar coins — different metals and different denominations — annually. NGC recently featured the sale of four stunning Chinese gold kilo lunar coins. The China Lunar Series in the NGC Registry is quite popular and boasts over 1,200 participating sets! This month we present a striking NGC Registry China Lunar set, a Silver 300 Yuan, 1 Kilo 2014-2025 Proof set by newlinter.

All coins in this particular series have low mintages. The 2017 Rooster and the 2019 Pig, for example, each have a mintage of 10,000. The 2021 Ox has a mintage of only 5,000. They each sell now for a lofty $2,000+ US dollars, so the set participants are a select group of eight right now. Newlinter ranks number one in this set type and has crisp clear images for all coins, all of which are NGC Top Pop Proof 70 Ultra Cameo. Be sure to check out his gallery.

Newlinter began assembling this collection in 2020 and has recently made some updates in June of this year. The number two collector, HKP Wong, is not too far behind in the number two spot. As the 2023 NGC Registry Awards deadline rolls closer, it will be interesting to see who lands in first place! There is still time for additions and for new participants to jump in the ring!

Would you like your set to be featured in a future article? 100% completion in a set is not always feasible. Perhaps, we will choose someone whose set has a personal story behind it or some interesting historical facts. We are looking for those sets where someone has taken the time to make the set unique and a reflection of his/her personal collecting style. It may be your set! Stay tuned.
