The People's Bank of China has issued a set of the Jian-10 Fighter Aircraft Gold and Silver Commemorative Coins for 2007. This set of commemorative coins includes one gold coin and one silver coin, both of which are the legal tender of the People's Republic of China. This set can be purchased right now from Panda America. Here are the exciting details:
Both the gold and silver coins have the same reverse design on the coin, featuring the Chinese national emblem and the title of the People's Republic of China, with the year of issue, 2007.

This set of gold and silver commemorative jet coins was minted by Shenzhen Guobao Mint, and is distributed by Panda America, an official U.S. distributor for the People's Bank of China since 1982. With a low worldwide mintage and such a limited amount made available to U.S. collectors, these impressive jet coins won't be around for long.
