PCGS Continues 30th Anniversary - Celebrates Longevity with Special Auspicious Culture Labels
Continuing the 30th anniversary celebration of Professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGSasia.com), the company will offer a unique commemorative insert label that complements China’s Auspicious Culture coin series.
The first two of four gold and silver coins were issued by the People’s Bank of China on March 22 and April 26, 2016, with two more pairs of gold and silver coins slated for release on May 18, and June 22 of this year, respectively. Each coin released will depict an Auspicious Culture theme and come in silver (10 Yuan) and gold (100 Yuan) denominations. PCGS will make special labels available for all four releases.
“The custom that surrounds these special coins involves lucky messages that evoke harmony. So it made sense to unveil this lucky label, which harmoniously pairs with Auspicious Culture’s silver and gold coins,” said Mr. Don Willis, PCGS President.
The labels correspond with the coin’s 10 and 100-Yuan denominations and are adorned with peach-colored flowers on the left corner of the obverse, amongst a white backdrop. The same flowers grace the entirety of the reverse, amongst a gold backdrop, with a crimson tassel.
“It’s a time of celebration for us at PCGS, and these beautiful coins released in the Auspicious Culture series are a perfect vehicle to continue our celebration,” according to Mr. Willis. “Longevity is the hallmark of this revered custom, so the coin series is somewhat of a metaphor for our 30th anniversary, our longevity.”
