This premium bullion coin from the Royal Australian Mint depicts the pirate ship of Ching Shih.
Zheng Yi Sao (also known as Ching Shih), who was a woman who led of one of the largest, most successful and feared gang of pirates the world has ever seen. Sao’s reign as the queen of pirates was short-lived but reached heights never seen before or since. She was responsible for a great amount of terror — terror so great that China was willing to let her and her followers simply walk away as long as they would only let go of their stranglehold on the country.

Yea, I saw it right away to! So I bought it!
Actually, I have the first one in the series, @littlebee4
Cool, the same thought at seeing it.
That’s nice you have the first one in the series too @silversaver888 😊
Can’t wait to extent my collection, at the moment we are rather busy with exciting life changing things… I write about soon. After that, it’s time to stack 😉
Looking forward to the exciting things ... changes? !
Stacking can wait, for sure!
Thank you @silversaver888 😊
The first one is under 2 weeks away: 👰🏻♀️🤵🏻♂️
The other ones I can’t tell yet, don’t want to jinx it as a lot of paperwork is involved. But soon… when I know more. It does include another move or 2.😎
Yes it can wait.

I have not seen this coin before, but the reverse has a nice clean cool looking design.
It's made by the Royal Australian Mint with a mintage of 10,000 only!
It is not available in Apmex and JMB, but is available in Coin Shoppe, @maddogmike!
Powerful quotes and some beautiful coins , I have a question have you blackend coins before ?
I have old cins that have "blackened" over time. Is that what you mean?
Zheng Yi Sao sounds like a Pirate you didn't want to tangle with @silversaver888! 😳
This second issue of the Pirate Queens Series, is stunning, I like how they have a Phoenix circling the pirate ship below!
The confederation’s six fleets were designated by color — black, blue, purple, red, white and yellow; Zheng Yi the husband to CHing Shih, commanded the red fleet, which was the largest and most powerful. Phoenix was their mascot.
That is very interesting @silversaver888!😊 she sounded like a very powerful leader that you wouldn’t want to cross!😳
A very nice coin with a distinctive oriental theme. I like it! Thanks for sharing sis!🤗😘💖🌸
I glad that you do, sis!!!
Hugs and kisses 🤗😘💖
The Story of Ching Shih would have made a great Soap opera I would love to watch. There is a Hong Kong production of the venerable pirate Queen but like most Chinese productions her Kung Fu was way over the top. The pirated (Lol!) video version didn't have English subtitles so I had to guess the dialogue.
Always, with love 🤗🌺❤️
I believe that the Phoenix was the symbol on her Red flag.
Wow, can't believe you actually know of the Hong Kong production. Whenever i traveled to HK in the past, i've always tried to get myself a VHS copy of the production that used to be broadcasted on old time tv.
Would have to travel to a place called Temple Street (give it a search online), where you'd expect to find old antiques and garage type sales in an open market scenario on a MASSIVE scale. I've never had any luck in finding the Ching Shih soap. Not even my grandma has that frickin tape!
I miss Hong Kong very much.
I have a hard copy DVD of 'The Pirates', a Korean Production of a fictional Pirate Princess unrelated to Ching Shih. It's more a comedy. I haven't had time to comb Vancouver's China town video shops to find it, Ces't la vie.
I have a trusted HK connection where I get my Trade Dollars with or without Chop marks and he accepts LTC as payment. I'm in the process of re-discovering the Asian side of my family tree. I have a few Chinese coins coming up by Sunday.
Oh! So you have the dragons blood in you!
That's fantastic to know.
I've not heard of anyone in HK using crypto...this is a first for me.
Yes, it was the Phoenix! South Korean?
Hugs and kisses, sis 🤗🌺❤️
I don't remember. The characters are typical simplified Chinese that both Cantonese or Mandarin can follow regardless of the actual dialogue used. I think most current productions are in Mandarin now.
These coin is the best have seen this year
There will be more coming, for sure @adeyemijan!!
@kerrislravenhill @silversaver888 the famous short story writer Jorge Borges once wrote a tale of the most Famous female Pirate, the Widow Ching...of course based on the real pirate herself, yet romanticised to a degree in his books.
Found you the short story here which you can peruse...
Do you follow these types of stories?
Borges is one of my favourite fiction writers.
Thanks for the link.
