The design is the work of Shanghai Mint artist Sun Qi Ling. Although the mintage of these coins exceeded 100,000 not many are left today for collectors. Most found their way into jewelry or other promotional items.The average condition of the vast majority is actually circulated, but these ex-jewelry survivors are unlikely to ever get graded. Among the coins submitted to NGC for grading the average grade is MS68. MS68 is a very nice grade for the 1991 3 Yuan 1 gm.
Gold and an MS69 example is a superior find. This item is in the category "Coins & Paper Money\Coins: World\Asia\China\PRC (1949-Now)". The seller is "bodhi_2020" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.
