Modern Chinese Varieties: 1988 G100Y Zhao Kungyin

Posted on 9/13/2016

This is the 20th installment of our monthly column devoted to modern Chinese varieties.

This month we will feature another 1988 G100Y with high and low date located on the obverse of the coin. This time it is for the Zhao Kungyin coin.

This is an example of the high date which is also located far from the rim (Photos 1 & 2).
