2001 China Yuan

Do you have a Chinese coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Technically this is a People's Republic of China coin but that is way to long for a title. China makes lots of commemorative Yuans but the one I am showcasing is just the regular circulating issue.

Chinese coins of any era are not uncommon to find. The main reason is that they have been made in the hundreds of  millions since the early 1900s.



ZHONGGUA RENMIN YINHANG and a Chrysanthemum

The edge has RMB three times with an incused  diamond between each RMB. RMB mean Renminbi or sign: ¥; code: CNY; also CN¥, 元 and CN元 all means legal tender.

ZHONGGUO RENMIN YINHANG means Peoples Bank of China or 中國人民銀行 which is written on the front.

Here's the stats for both coins...
Type/Country: 1 Yuan / China
Edge: Upside side up when Obverse is facing up, ↑↓.
Year: 2001
Mintage: Unknown.
Metal: Nickel-Plated Steel
Value: $1.00 in XF

P.S. Made in China

Do you have Asian coins and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

39 dollars worth, for Comments/Questions click here.:

"P.S. Made in China" Ha. :)

It is interesting that it is marked on the sides. Have you seen this in other coins from different countries?

Yeah, pretty common.
The U.S. dollars, the British pound coins.

I got a coin today that looks exactly like this but instead of Yi Yuan next to the 1, mine says Yi Jiao. Is it the same thing?

No a Yi Jiao coin is 1 Jiao.
1 Jiao = 1/10 Yuan
or 10 Jiao = 1 Yuan

So it is a lesser coin, if it has an Orchid on the back then it was made in 1999 or later it should be aluminum and about $0.10 in very-fine.

Tyler Lawrence said...

So a Jiao is like a penny and a Yuan is like a dime? On the back, it looks like it has two flowers.

Man said...

Sort of a dime, but exchange rate of a penny.

Still a nice find.

Thanks. I wish I had a way of showing you some of my coin finds, but I don't have a camera.

I use to use a scanner, then a cell phone, but buying a proper camera is best.

Sounds like an Australian 20 Cents coin about $1.75 in very-fine. The back design is a Duckbill Platypus swimming.

Man said...

1 dollar chinese coin worth in america

No such thing.
Do you mean Yen or Yuan? What year?

Kitty said...

I have this coin! But it doesn't have the markings on the edge of the coin. Does that change the value?

Man said...

Probably a fake, Chinese coins are often faked.

Even if a error it is such low quality that it does not bring extra value.

I have this Yi Jiao coin in excellent condition, 2008. My sons grandfather gave to him, he got it when traveling. What exactly is it & the conversion into US currency? I'm not familiar with this so I don't know what to tell him about it. Thx.

It is 1/10th of a Yuan, like a ten cents in the U.S.

It is about $0.02 in exchange value.

Man said...

Yi Yuan coin

It is from China it is like a dollar but the actual value is much less.
They are all common and usually made of stainless steel.

About $1.00 in high grade.

I recently came across a coin from Taiwan. Its a silver 5 jiao (chiao), with the portrait of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, and the Island of Taiwan on the back. Did some research and found out that it could possibly be the silver one from 1949. What would the value of it be today?
