One of the stars of the sale is a China 1906 Pattern Tael (K-934) graded NGC MS 64, which has an estimate of $100,000 to $150,000. Struck at the Tientsin Mint six years after its re-establishment in 1900, the Tael was meant to replace the standard Mace-Candareens. While its introduction into widespread circulation ultimately failed due to political turmoil, its design influenced the later Imperial issues of 1908.

Another piece from the Tientsin Mint is a China 1914 Silver Dollar (L&M-72) graded NGC MS 63 from the Republic of China dollar series. It is tied for the second finest of its kind in the NGC Census. Although it is a pattern coin, it is difficult to find an example that is so well-preserved. This coin also has an estimate of $100,000 to $150,000 USD.
