The addition of color to Chinese coins adds a remarkable and striking new dimension and attraction to a wide variety of coin types and series. Clever use of contrasting color can make what was initially an attractive coin a truly stunning piece of art. Notable examples that are particularly appealing are the colored coins of the Peking Opera and Lunar series. These coins require a high degree of expertise to create, and they bear witness to the ability of the designers and artisans at the China Mint. For many of these coins, color enhances the aesthetic attraction, highlighting and bringing out the best in the design. Take a look at the Peking Opera coins in particular, as the costumes and masks are vividly brought to life in their colorized form.
