CHINA. Pattern 50 Cents (1/2 Dollar), Year 3 (1911). PCGS SP-62+ Secure Holder.
L&M-39; K-228; Y-30; WS-0047; Wenchao-pg. 138#121 (rarity three stars). VERY RARE. Like many of the 1911 issues, this pattern or proposed design was never adopted for mass production due to the outbreak of the 1911 revolution. Instantly recognizable as a very special coin, the care with which it was made and the resulting product are amazing. The scales of the dragon have such a sharp and deep strike, that the beast has taken on a three dimensional appearance. With a dragon that looks as if he is poised to leap right off the surface of the coin! Light attractive toning lends additional character to the piece. A coin worthy of the most sophisticated of collections and sure to bring pride to the next collector who owns it. PCGS SP-62+ Secure Holder.

Estimate: $75000.00- $90000.00
