The most famous Chinese silver dollar from the late Qing era is most likely the Y3 1/2 silver dollar, colloquially referred to as ?#23459;三?in China. It was minted in 1911 (3rd year of the rule of Xuan Tong) at the Central Mint in Tianjin. It was the last imperial coin issued before the regime was toppled by the Xinhai revolution. The design of this Chinese silver dollar is considered by many collectors to be the most beautiful, and it is also the only imperial Chinese coin bearing the ?b>HALF DOLLAR?face value to have been circulated. While not rare by any measure, the Y3 half dollar has seen its market value rise steeply in recent years due this popularity.

Empire. Half Dollar Year 3 (1911) A superb example with satiny gray and patina surfaces. Extremely rare in this superior quality and a coin with exceptional eye appeal. The nicest example of this type we have seen. This type was struck over a period of years at several mints and it is listed as common but choice examples are, as always, scarce. The Chinese Empire collapsed the following year, in 1912.
