MA-Shops - Qing Dynasty coins

By ……

This 1 Rupee 1902-1942 from the Qing Dynasty and this nice colorful 1 Yan 1888 from the Japanese Meiji era are just a couple of the coins offered by New Century Coins and Notes, located in Hong Kong.

Anthony Lee, the founder and principal of New Century Coins and Notes, was born in a very ordinary Hong Kong family of seven, with his father a trusted tailor. And since his primary school days, Anthony has had no other hobby but collecting coins.

He has worked in numerous fields and tried different jobs, yet he has found that coins and banknotes remain his biggest passion. In 1975, Anthony established New Century Coins and Notes and became a professional dealer, selling at various numismatic fairs and auctions worldwide. So it was 40 years ago, and that child is now a rather experienced and renowned man among other coin dealers.

The past two decades have brought Anthony a handful of great experiences, bringing him interviews from different media locally and all around the world – including Japan and China. In the 1980s, Anthony and Mr. Tak-Wo Ma were invited to verify some exhibits for the Hong Kong Museum (now known as the Hong Kong Historical Museum).

Mr. Lee is a member of different numismatic associations and he actively participates in numerous volunteer services. He spends his spare time in service to his community and tries to share his experiences of coins and notes with the public.
