Shanghai, established as a fishing village more than one thousand years ago along an estuary of the Yangtze River, is now China's largest mainland metropolis and a worldwide leader in fashion, design, and the arts. The stunning proof has face value of $2 dollars, struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, measuring 40 mm in diameter, and is among a limited mintage of only 3,000 coins.
