Want to bring a little fortune to your coin collection or stack? Here’s a product that can make that happen metaphorically and literally. Whether you love unique coins with a lot of culture and history behind them or just want to stack a bit of gold, the 1997 1/10 oz Gold Chinese Auspicious Matters Coin is an item you should consider.

  • Coin arrives in a plastic capsule!
  • 1997 minting!
  • Limited availability as only 100,000 coins minted!
  • Consists of 1/10 Troy oz .999 fine gold.
  • Face value of the coin is 10 yuan backed by People’s Bank of China.
  • Tiananmen gate column and decorative elements appear on the obverse.
  • Small child sitting on a lotus flower and holding a lucky carp appears on the reverse.

The image on the obverse of this coin provides an example of traditional Chinese architecture. It’s a depiction of an ancient huabiao that stands at the Tiananmen gate in Beijing. Huabiao are traditional columns that typically show up in pairs in locations such as outside of palaces, tombs or important cultural buildings. The huabiao depicted on the 1997 Gold Chinese Auspicious Matters Coin stands outside of the Tiananmen Gate and was erected sometime during the Ming dynasty in the 15th century. It’s not the only column standing in that location. There is a pair outside of the gate and a pair inside of the gate.

The reverse of the coin depicts a more metaphorical idea. It shows a young child sitting among blooming lotus flowers and holding tightly to a large carp. Lotus flowers can be a symbol of purity, rebirth, and enlightenment. The carp figures in Chinese mythology as a creature of luck, possibly because it’s believed that a carp that could jump over the Dragon Gate would turn into a dragon. Putting all the images together on the back of this coin, it’s apparent that the young child is clinging to his luck.

The 1997 Gold Chinese Auspicious Matters Coin ships in a plastic capsule. The capsule keeps the coin safe during shipping, but you can also choose to display or store the coin in the transparent capsule to protect its condition over time.

These coins were minted more than two decades ago and in limited numbers, which can make them difficult to find today. Buy yours at Silver.com while inventory is available. If you have any questions about gold for sale or need assistance with your order, you can contact our representatives via online chat or email or by calling 1-888-989-7223.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
