People's Republic of China, 5 Yuan 1985

Since the opening of China a great number of commemorative coins has been produced for trade. The pieces are beautifully made. However, since they were never intended as inner Chinese currency, many experts consider them medals. This piece belongs to a series with the title "founders of Chinese culture," and shows the initiator of Taoism, the philosopher Lao Tse.
