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.
Each series consists of Two 1 oz. pure silver proof 10 Yuan coins with mintages limited to 70,000 of each, a 1/3 oz. pure gold proof 150 Yuan coin, with a maximum mintage of 35,000, a 5 oz. pure silver proof 50 Yuan coin is rectangular (80 x 50mm.), with a limited mintage of 12,000, and a 5 oz. pure silver proof 50 Yuan coin is rectangular (64 x 40mm.), with a limited mintage of 900 pieces.
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!
