*Any lines are on capsule and not actual medal. The Gold Prancing Horse medal comes with unique wooden box along with original medal certificate.

The rarity of the medal cannot be understated as it was one of 780 medals commissioned from Peking for the exclusive distribution during the 1978 Hong Kong Exhibition of Archaeological Finds.

It was noted to us by a long time Hong Kong dealer and numismatic that due to the rise in gold price during the early 1980’s. Many of these medals were melted down, including 25 pieces he himself sent in to be melted. Today he holds the original boxes and certificates as antiques.

A similar but (Damaged) 1978 Horse 1.5oz Hong Kong Archaeological Finds Gold Medal sold at auction some years ago. This piece displayed several nicks and scratches to the surface on both sides. Despite these major defects this item still managed a sales price of several thousand Usd.(Pictured below)
