GC Item ID:438715
Grading Service:
NGC MS-69
GC Item Title:China 1994 G1000Y Gold Lunar Series - Dog #79 NGC Proof-69 UC (AGW = 11.9878 oz.)
Certification Number:
4228457-002
  
Catalog Number
6000128
Description:Fr-B64; KM-650.

An exceedingly rare modern Chinese rarity with a total mintage of only 99 pieces (and more than likely a much smaller number exists today). The lunar animal design is based on a mid eighteenth century painting of a Tibetan Mastiff by Giuseppe Castiglione from his Ten Prized Dogs series. Only a scant six examples of this type have been certified by NGC and PCGS with this piece being tied with two others as the finest certified. A seldom offered rarity which has only appeared at auction a few times in the past decade.
