拍品描述 民国二十五年孙中山像一圆银样币。上海中央造币厂製。 铸打深峻,孙中山侧颜细部分明,半镜面版底,浓郁灰色包浆,人像四周环绕虹彩亮泽。极其稀罕,备受藏家追捧却鲜有面市的版别,本行于2010年12月3日香港拍卖黄华枢专场中拍出一枚同款,拍品编号#63,含佣金合计拍出$80,000美金,藏界瞩目。

据知名作家及藏家耿爱德称,这批铸币是为预备发行的一圆及半圆所造的样币,数量极少。铸出后,由中央银行副行长寄送给驻上海的美国财政部长M.R. Nicholson先生供参考及意见反馈。耿氏通过考察Nicholson的相关史料,认为这批银样属自己书中所列的633、634、635版别,本拍品版别为634。

CHINA. Silver Reduced Size Dollar Pattern, Year 25 (1936). Struck in Shanghai at the Central Mint. PCGS SPECIMEN-62 Gold Shield. L&M-113; K-634; KM-Pn172; WS-0152; Wenchao-926 (rarity four stars); Shanghai Museum-Mr. Shi Jiagan s collection-pg. 135 # 623/624. A sharply struck pattern with clear crisp design features and semi-reflective fields that are slightly subdued by rich medium gray tone accentuated with iridescent hues amongst the devices. EXTREMELY RARE, highly sought after and an excellent trophy piece that seldom appears on the market.

The last example we sold was in our inaugural Hong Kong auction December 3, 2010 the "Wa She Wong collection" Lot # 63 where it hammered for an impressive $80,000 plus buyer s fee.According to famed author and collector Edward Kann, these issues were struck on a trial or essay basis for a proposed reduced module size Dollar and 1/2 Dollar. Struck in limited quantities, the Vice-Governor of the Central Bank of China sent samples of the proposed new Dollar and 1/2 Dollar to the U.S. Treasury Attache at Shanghai to the attention of Mr. M.R. Nicholson for inspection and critique. Based on Mr. Nicholson findings, Kann speculates that these samples correspond to his 633, 634 (present type) and 635.

From the Mas Fera Collection.
