This year’s annual Beijing International Coin Exposition took place from Nov. 10-12. The People’s Bank of China marked the occasion with the issuance of a 40 mm, 30 g .999 fine silver 10 yuan.
The obverse depicts the logo of BICE superimposed on the globe. The reverse shows design used by the PRC on its 2017 Year of the Rooster coins accompanied by that of a Gallic rooster. This is one from a series of gold and silver coins issued by France from 2010 to 2014 celebrating a series of French numismatic icons.
The new coin’s mintage is 30,000.
