Chinese Provincial Coinage on the Rise

Chinese Provincial Hunan Dollar

As I mentioned in earlier postings, Chinese Provincial coinage has been on the rise for at least a year now. Interest increased first for the milled silver coinage and has since spread to the copper cast cash coins. 

With the help of some of our dedicated contributing experts, I have been updating prices in the 19th and 20th Century listings for various Chinese Provices on NumisMaster and for the Standard Catalog series. Today, I thought I would mention one specific price increase instituted in the province of Hunan. The coin is the largest 20th Century denomination for Hunan, One Dollar, struck in silver and cataloged as Y#404. Values for this type have risen by about 50% driving uncirculated examples from $1850 up to $2800.
