Why Add This GEM Proof 1996 China 1 oz. Year of the Rat Piedfort Silver Proof with an Exclusive China Label to Your Collection?

Coins with a Lunar theme are popular around the world, but some of the most impressive specimens are issued by China. This 1996 1 oz. piedfort silver proof was issued for the Year of the Rat. It is smaller in diameter than most 1 oz. silver coins because it is thicker. Mintage of this proof was limited to 8,000 pieces.

Classic Year of the Rat Design

On the obverse, the date can be seen near the bottom of the design. Above this, the national emblem of China is shown within a wreath.

The reverse shows a rat design that was taken from a famous painting by Qi Baishi. The rat is sitting up as it looks around. The inscriptions on this side state the silver content and face value.

GEM Proof from NGC with an Exclusive China Label

This coin was certified as being in GEM Proof condition by the experts at the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). Instead of a regular label, it has an exclusive China themed label.
