One of the best ways to get ripped off in coin collecting is to buy Chinese coins from someone you do not know. We know Baldwin's, the world-renowned numismatic dealer in London. The 1 mace and 4.4 candareens (20 cent) coin in our main picture comes from Baldwin's, and it sold for $2200 US dollars in a 2011 auction. Genuine 7 mace and 2 candareens (one dollar) coins are tremendously valuable, selling for tens of thousands of US dollars.

CHEH KIANG 1 MACE AND 4.4 CANDAREENS
worn: $100 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1000
well preserved: $2000

CHEH KIANG 3 MACE AND 6 CANDAREENS
worn: $10000 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $20000
well preserved: $40000

CHEH KIANG 7 MACE AND 2 CANDAREENS
worn: $20000 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $30000
well preserved: $60000

With such high values, counterfeits abound. See a side-by-side comparison below. Fakes are worth zero.


CoinQuest thanks Baldwin's for use of their superb coin images.
