HERE IS A DISTINGUISHED OFFERING:


"YANG ZHOU" , "YUAN BAO", AN ELUSIVE & HIGHLY SYMBOLIC 

"KUBLAI KHAN" SYCEE  WITH ITS CLOSE AFFILIATION &

 TRANSITION FROM THE SOUTHERN SONG DYNASTY'S  (1127 - 1269) 

ENRICHED & SOCIALLY ADVANCED CIVILIZATION,

DOCUMENTED AS THE MOST ADVANCED CULTURE OF ITS TYPE

 IN THE KNOWN WORLD.

BEING EXTENDED & ENHANCED BY THE UNIFICATION & 

LEADERSHIP OF THE YUAN DYNASTY (1279 - 1368), 

UNDER THE WISE & NOBLE LEADERSHIP OF KUBLAI KHAN.

THE ORIGINS OF THE "YANG ZHOU" YUAN BAO, REACH BACK

 TO THE SIEGE OF THE TWO SONG DYNASTY CITIES OF XIANYANG & FANCHENG

 IN 1269 UNDER THE DIRECTION OF COMMANDER GENERAL BAYAN & 

THE MONGOLS' 12 YEAR WAR WAGED AGAINST THE SOUTHERN SONG DYNASTY.

  THE SURRENDER OF "KEY" FORTIFIED CITIES, 

UNDER THE TENACIOUS COMMAND OF GENERAL LU WENHUAN 

FINALLY FREED THE MONGOL ARMY TO CAPTURE THE CAPITAL OF HANGZHOU

WHICH WAS PEACEFULLY SURRENDERED BY THE DOWAGER EMPRESS.  

AS AN ENDURING LEGACY OF THE NEWLY ESTABLISHED YUAN DYNASTY 

OF KUBLAI KHAN, PROCLAIMED "GREAT  KHAN" (1260) &

 THEN EMPEROR OF ALL CHINA (1271), THESE TRIBUTE "YANGZHOU" WERE CAST.  

THE INSCRIPTIONS IMPRESSED ON THIS EXAMPLE ARE "YUAN BAO"

 i.e. "YUAN DYNASTY'S TREASURED GOODS" 

VERY SIMILAR TO THE VAULT PROTECTORS CAST AS SEALS

 TO THE IMPERIAL TREASURY.  

THIS EXCEPTIONAL EXAMPLE IS FROM A KNOWN POPULATION OF ONLY 10 +- EXAMPLES,

 8 BEING ON DISPLAY IN CHINESE MUSEUMS FROM TAIPEI TO SHANGHAI.

  NEEDLESS TO ASSERT THAT THIS EXQUISITE EXAMPLE 

STANDS AS ONE OF THE FEW FINEST SYMBOLS OF 

NUMISMATIC - TYPE TREASURY BULLION OF CHINA.  

HISTORICALLY NOTED BY MARCO POLO ON ONE OF HIS TRADE VISITS

 TO THE HIGH COURT OF THE GREAT KHAN.  

ITS IRREPLACEABLE STATUS AS THE DEEPLY PROFOUND CULTURAL/HISTORICAL

TRANSITIONAL "KEYSTONE" FROM THE "GOLDEN AGE" 

OF THE SOUTHERN SONG TO KUBLAI KHAN'S LONG STEWARDSHIP IS UNQUESTIONED!! 

 A "GOLDEN AGE OF FLOWERING" UNPRECEDENTED IN WORLD HISTORY, IN ANY ERA.

THIS YANG ZHOU SEEKS A LASTING RETURN TO ITS ORIGINAL "ROOTS", 

HAVING BEEN FORGED OF THE BLOOD OF MANY THOUSANDS, 

(BOTH SONG & MONGOLS PEOPLE) WHO DIED IN HONOR.   

THE COFFERS OF BOTH TRIBUTE & PILLAGE WERE GATHERED

 BY THE HIGHEST OF YUAN MINISTRY FROM SONG'S TREASURY 

& MONGOL SOLDIERS TO SMELT & CAST INTO INGOTS , 

WITH VALIDATION STAMPS OF INDIVIDUALS 

FROM THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS POSITIONS 

IN THE KUBLAI KHAN GOVERNANCE.

A TRULY "ONE OF A KIND" THAT SERVES 

AS A DYNAMIC TRIBUTE & TANGIBLE RECORD

 MARKING THE "GOLDEN AGE" OF A FULLY UNITED CHINA!!!!

SPECIFICATIONS:

"50 Tael Sycee Ingot, (1,912 grams) Issued in

Year 14 (A.D. 1273) of China’s Yuan Dynasty. 

至元十四年州元

This historically important Sycee which has many seals 

From many levels of Government Officials.

This one is from 銀庫 "THE VAULT" 

with an inprint of the 銀庫 "Vault Seal". 

Plus, another separate Seal from the Official Vault Manager 銀庫." 

 ABSOLUTELY AUTHENTIC WITH ALL SUBSTANTIATED PROVENANCE.  

THIS IS A PRECIOUS HISTORICAL & CULTURAL SYMBOL

 OF THE OLD IMPERIAL POWER NOW ON THE RISE AGAIN IN CHINA, 

ONLY A VERY SELECT FEW CAN BOTH AFFORD & PRESERVE 

THIS EXQUISITE SYCEE MASTERPIECE, PERHAPS

YOU WILL MERIT THE PRESTIGIOUS HONOR OF OWNERSHIP!!  

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING.
