    Not a recognized mint apparently. I knew when the coa said --xxxxx. Souvenir co that I might have a problem. Kind of a piss off, but oh well

    You knew that it didn't come from an authorized mint when you bought it?

    I am taking a bit more notice of this thread since I was lucky enough to score this beauty from ozcopper's barter listing.
    Now that I have had a chance to hold it in my hand and feel the weight and depth of this medal ,I am doubly pleased.

    Hope I don't get too addicted to them ,though :)

    Edit : looks like the link is dead .. sorry

    I have just received my 1990 5 oz silver Eight Immortals Medal.
    I love this medal and photos do not give this medal enough justice.
    This is now the crown jewel of my small Chinese Coin and Medal Collection.
    I have posted some pictures.
