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, ↑↓.
Metal: Nickel-Plated Steel
Value: $1.00 in XF
P.S. Made in China
