Chinese Famous Classical Literature Works Outlaws of the Marsh Colored Gold and Silver  Commemorative Coins (Series 2)

A 1995 translation of the 14th century Chinese novel "Outlaws of the Marsh" By Shi Nai'an and Luo Guanzhong requires 3 volumes and 1,605 pages. So it is not surprising that China’s Outlaws of the Marsh commemorative coin series also requires three sets of coins to depict the most important characters in this timeless story of political corruption, murder, love, and martial arts. The stories, based on factual events, tell how about one hundred men and women banded together on a marsh-girt mountain in what today is Shandong Province, to became leaders of an outlaw army of thousands - fighting brave and resourceful battles against heartless tyrants. The second issue of colorized coins, all dated 2010, is now available from official distributor Panda America:

Outlaws of the Marsh Gold and Silver Commemorative Coins - Series 2

Two 1 oz. pure silver proof 10 Yuan coins feature Yang Zhi and Wu Song; mintages are limited to 35,000 sets. Yang Zhi, who is highly skilled in martial arts, is depicted killing a hooligan. He later kills a bandit leader and joins the other outlaws. Wu Song is shown slaying a fierce tiger with his bare hands. He later escapes from exile disguised as a priest and becomes a leader of the outlaw band.

The 5 oz. pure silver proof 50 Yuan coin is rectangular (80 x 50mm.), with a limited mintage of 12,000. Songsun Sheng, a Taoist priest, is depicted defeating Gao Lian by summoning the wind and rain, mist and clouds. Sheng was one of the “Righteous Seven” who fled to the outlaw band after robbing a convoy of birthday gifts intended for the Imperial tutor.

Lu Junyi was known as the “Jade Unicorn, because of his height (9 feet tall), sparkling eyes and charisma. He was a wealthy squire, skilled in the martial arts, who became second-in-command to the outlaws of the marsh. Junyi is featured on the new 1/3 oz. pure gold proof 150 Yuan coin, that has a maximum mintage of 35,000.

The pièce de résistance of the second series of Outlaws of the Marsh coins is the rectangular (64 x 40mm.) 5 oz. pure gold proof 2000 Yuan coin, with a maximum mintage of 900 pieces. Pictured is the attack by the “outlaws,” led by Song Jiang, on the Zhu Family Manor.

All coins in the "Outlaws of the Marsh" collection are legal tender of the People’s Republic of China. In addition, all coins are colorized and come with boxes and certificates of authenticity and are 99.9% Pure. Quantities and mintages are EXTREMELY limited - the American allocation of this impressive series will DEFINITELY run out. Please order early to avoid a sell-out!
