Historical Figures

You can tell a lot about the key events in Chinese history and culture by looking at the influential figures featured on these coins. From heroes to villains, tyrannical rulers to philosophers, politicians to explorers, all of them have made their mark and have been formative in the creation of China – both past and present. For some, their influence has extended well beyond China’s borders and has permeated international cultures. The history they represent spans several thousand years, dating from Mao Zedong all the way back to the time of Confucius. These visually stunning and aesthetically pleasing coins make great gifts as well as good investments, particularly when a complete set is acquired. For those with a slightly larger budget, our 1/3 oz gold coins would make an intelligent and well-considered investment, while those with a little less to spend will find our 22 g silver coins particularly appealing and affordable.
