This specimen was lot 30613 in Heritage sale 3064 (Chicago, April 2018), where it sold for $1,680. The catalog description[1] noted, "People's Republic silver "Year of the Pig" Proof 10 Yuan 1983 PR69 Ultra Cameo NGC. Essentially pristine with superior cameo depth." The Chinese government has, since the mid 1980's, produced a mind boggling array of bullion related collectibles. A complete set is thousands of types yet buyers clamor for more. This NCLT has the same module as the Year of the Dog (KM 56) issued the year before but is denominated 10 yuan instead of 20 yuan.

Recorded mintage: 6,790 proofs.

Specification: 15 g, .850 fine silver, .410 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: KM 73.
