THE FAMILY HEIRLOOM CHUAN JIA ZHI BAO (PMC)
In amongst the impressive copper-cored, ultra high relief coins that have impressed us over the last year or so, Singapore-based producer Precious Metal Collectors also occasionally put out something of a more standard nature. This one is called “Chuan Jia Zhi Bao”, the Family Heirloom, and is surely aimed at the Asian market. The reverse face depicts a Chinese family sitting around the dinner table, described as ‘ the quintessential representation of the culture of what Home feels like, found in Asian families.’.
It’s a 1oz silver coin, that’s been gilded and coloured. The main inscription, “家” means Family and Home in Chinese, with the poem to the side representing ‘mutual love, understanding and family harmony’. The coin is issued for the Republic of Chad, so that nations coat of arms fills the obverse. The box, in line with the subject of the coin, has space to aid personal heirlooms within it, like photographs or jewellery. You have to give credit where due, Precious Metal Collectors do a great job with the little touches like that. As for the coin, it’s one that will appeal to the home region, and ex-pats, but is probably not one for the wider market. Available to order now with a mintage of 1.399 pieces.
