For those interested in Chinese culture, these commemorative coins that have just been issued by the Bank of China are a must buy. Apparently, there has been a first set of similar coins before this release – but its the first that we are hearing of it. This new set consists of a one gold coin and two silver ones. The coins feature traditional Peking Opera facial makeup.
The Peking Opera Facial Makeup series features Bao Zheng, a symbol of justice in Chinese culture.
Only 30,000 of the gold coins (having a face value of 100 yuan) and 50,000 of the silver coins (with a face value of 10 yuan) will ever be minted.
