Why add the Charles Barber's Dragon Pattern 1 oz Silver Medal NGC MS70 to your collection?

This Dragon Pattern Silver Medal enjoys the solidly collectible Mint State 70 (MS70) grade from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). This exclusive ModernCoinMart offering was struck by the world famous Shanghai Mint with a special arrangement through the Smithsonian Institution. The medal was struck on a 1 oz. .9999 pure silver blank. This historical significance of these medals is astounding. The Chinese Province of Szechuan needed to mint additional coinage around the turn of the 20th century. The U.S. Mint's Charles Barber was contracted to create the dies for the new coinage based on the popular Kwangtung Dragon Dollar. Some patterns were struck with the original dies on some newly purchased Western coin presses. Due to a flood and subsequent damage, these examples are the only ones to remain from the original strikings. The original pattern coins are the models for this offering and are now on display in the Smithsonian Numismatic Collection and the Shanghai Mint's Museum. This medal is an authorized reproduction of the original Barber coins.

Lucky Chinese Kwangtung Dragon

The obverse of the medal depicts Charles Barber's mythic Chinese Dragon. The reverse features Chinese pictograms with the denomination and year.

Brilliant MS70 Perfection

MS70 examples are flawless when examined under 5x magnification. They have mesmerizing mint luster, stunning original surfaces and excellent eye appeal.
