Description: Kann-1558, L&M-1089. Obv. Obv. 3/4 facing bust of Yuan Shih-kai in military dress. Rev. Value, in Chinese, in wreath, with value in English below. A very rare Presentation piece issued to commemorate Yuan Shih-kai as a founder of the Republic. Although the 1916 issue, with this obverse and the dragon reverse, is much scarcer in silver, this type, with the legend reverse is quite a bit rarer in the gold strikings. The definition is superb, and the luster fully brilliant, with prooflike surfaces and only a few minute hairlines. This one believed to be the presentation series one, with special made convex near the head of Yuan shih-kai, believing in trying to make a halo-like presence. Consigned by the Ma family, who preserved this type for decades and first shown to the world. A very Choice, near-Gem example.
