INSURED SHIPMENT / OWN COLLECTION

We proudly present the first coin from our new "Famous Explorers" series!

Zheng He was an explorer, a diplomatic agent and a commander in chef of the great Chinese fleet. As a trusted deputy of the Chinese Emperor Yongle of the Ming Dynasty, he was given an extraordinary mission to accomplish. In 1405 Zheng He set out on his first sea expedition, accompanied by nearly 300 ships and 28 thousand people! The Chinese armada sailed over the Indian Ocean and made seven trips between 1405 and 1433. They visited many places in Asia and Africa, reaching the port town of Kalikat on the Indian Peninsula, the mouth of the Persian Gulf and Mozambique in Africa, just to mention a few.
Zheng He managed to establish diplomatic relations on a unique scale. His expeditions contributed to the development of trade and navigational knowledge. Primarily, though, they were considered a demonstration of Chinese power.

Soon after Zheng He's death, the great armada began to fall into decay and has been nearly forgotten for centuries. 

This unique coin was struck from 2 ounces of pure silver. To give it an antique finish, matching the greatness of the hero, the coin was oxidized. Both the reverse and the obverse of the coin are decorated with a high relief.

On the reverse: the powerful admiral Zheng He is leading his armada to the "Western Oceans". In the background: a baochuan - probably the largest wooden ship ever built. The legendary baochuans could reach the lenght of even 160 meters and were used to transport the most precious inventory and food supplies.

The coin is decorated with a porcelain insert, which was hand-painted with the greatest attention to detail. 

Together with the certificate of authenticity, our coin is available in an elegant wooden box, in a themed packaging. The whole set makes a matching composition.

The coin with Zheng He is the first one of the new series Famous Explorers. The emission plan is to strike six coins in the series, one each year starting in 2020.
