(As a "serious numismatist", I think I'm supposed to scoff at modern colorized coins, right?) But it came to mind again, and last night I broke down and bought one. I just really like the quintessential Chinese character of those little bats flying around the gilt enamel peach design, which looks like antique lacquered art. I just found it beautiful, for some reason. 60,000 of these were minted, half of which went into sets. Bats and peaches on the same side of the same coin. Who could have predicted that?
