The commemorative coin sports the design of the People's Bank of China, as well as its value, various additional Chinese characters, and the year 2007.


On the back of the coin, the main decoration is a girl on a swing, playing with a little pig. It features the Chinese characters-"Ding Hai" in the Ganzhi system, meaning: Chinese Years in Sky - Earth pairs.




Forget the presidential dollars; I gotta get me one of these!

These are New Years coins, and they are released in commemorative folders every year. I bought some of the 2006 editions when I was in Guangzhou last year, they make just about as many commemoratives as the Royal Canadian Mint, but if you buy them in China they do not have the stinging markup.
