People's Bank of China has been issuing collectible coins made with precious metal since 1979.

At the time, the gold coin was the spotlight amongst collectors and demand far exceeded its supply.

With the continued meteoric rise in interest for iconic and high-grade rarities spanning ancient China through the Qing, Republic, and People’s Republic eras, this auction will truly speak to all collectors and promises to stir tremendous excitement in the global collecting community.

The HKINF team can finally announce that the 10th Hong Kong International Numismatic Fair (HKINF) will resume from June 23 to 25, 2023! In view of the relaxation of the Government’s anti-epidemic measures in Hong Kong, we believe it is great news for both local and overseas exhibitors and collectors.
The HKINF team has always regarded the promotion and protection of the numismatic industry as our own responsibility. Considering that numismatic collectors from all over the world have not been able to visit Hong Kong and participate in such a grand event freely, we have no choice but to announce that the 10th HKINF will be tentatively rescheduled.
