Famous Paintings

These coins show off some of the best of what modern Chinese painters such as Xu Beihong and Guiseppe Castiglione had to offer. The work of these artists, among others – typically dating from the 18th, 19th, and 20th Centuries – is characterized by a skillful synthesis of traditional Chinese techniques with more modern Western artistic principals being introduced at the time. The result is the creation of a unique and highly attractive style, expertly captured in these gold and silver coins. Some of these series are often one-off commemorative sets with comparatively low mintages, so their numismatic value is correspondingly high. With both gold as well as the more affordable silver coins available, these can make a fine addition to a collection or investment portfolio, or equally a beautiful gift, no matter what your budget is.
