fine silver

Proof quality, with a precious metal content of 27 gm. of .900 fine silver, and a diameter of 38.6 mm. Mintages were only 10,000 for each year. No silver Pandas were issued in 1986. The 1987 silver Panda coins were minted in Proof quality from 1 troy oz. of sterling (.925 fine) silver, with a diameter of 40 mm. There are several mint (mint (coin))s that produced silver Panda coins over the years, including but not limited to: Shenzhen, Shanghai and Shenyang. Unlike coins made by US mints that carry mintmarks to distinguish their origin, Chinese mints generally do not carry mintmarks. In certain years there are minor variations in the coin design—such as the size of the date, temple, etc.--that allow the originating mint to be determined. An example is 1996 where different mints produced coins with minor variations in the font size of the date on the obverse side of the coins. In 1945, after Japan was defeated in World War II, the Republic of China (ROC) assumed control of Taiwan (see Political status of Taiwan). Within a year, the ROC government resumed the duty over the Bank of Taiwan and issued Taiwan dollars (also known as Taiwan Nationalist yuan or TWN) as a "provisional" replacement for the Japanese Taiwan yen at the rate of one to one. The new banknotes were initially printed in Shanghai, and were shipped to Taipei. In the later years, the banknotes were printed in Taipei. With the fall of Hankow to Japanese forces in October 1938 during the Second Sino-Japanese War, Wu and his family fled to Chungking. In 1939, Chiang Kai-Shek appointed him as mayor of Chungking, a position he held until 1942. He served as vice minister of Foreign Affairs from 1943-1945, interacting with Zhou Enlai as part of the united front against the Japanese. After the end of World War II, K.C. Wu became mayor of Shanghai in 1945, serving in that role until the Chinese Communists conquered the city in 1949. While mayor of Shanghai, Wu met the Chicago Tribune's Robert McCormick and his wife Maryland. As the situation in Shanghai became less stable, Wu sent his two daughters to live with the McCormicks in Illinois. http: www.cantignypark.com newsite mccormickmansion2ndfloorguestbedrooms.htm From November 1928, Ozaki was dispatched to Shanghai in China, where he soon made contact with members of the Chinese Communist Party, including Agnes Smedley, and other members of the Comintern leadership based in Shanghai. Smedley introduced him to Richard Sorge in 1930. After his return to Japan, he moved back to Tokyo in 1934 where he linked up with Sorge.

Shanghai

'''Shanghai''' is the largest Chinese (China) city by population Located in the Yangtze River Delta in East China, Shanghai sits on the south edge of the mouth of the Yangtze in the middle portion of the Chinese coast. The municipality borders the provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang to the north, south and west, and is bounded to the east by the East China Sea. url http: www.shanghai.gov.cn shanghai node23919 node24059 node24061 userobject22ai36489.html title Geographic Location work Basic Facts publisher Shanghai Municipal Government accessdate 14 September 2011

For centuries a major administrative, shipping, and trading town, Shanghai grew in importance in the 19th century due to European recognition of its favorable port (Port of Shanghai) location and economic potential. The city was one of five (Treaty ports) opened to foreign trade following the British victory over China in the First Opium War while the subsequent 1842 Treaty of Nanking and 1844 Treaty of Whampoa allowed the establishment of the Shanghai International Settlement and the French Concession (Shanghai French Concession). The city then flourished as a center of commerce between east and west, and became the undisputed financial hub of the Asia Pacific in the 1930s. title Shanghai: Global financial center? Aspirations and reality, and implications for Hong Kong url http: www.hkjournal.org PDF 2009_winter 3.pdf author Scott Tong publisher Hong Kong Journal date October 2009 accessdate 17 October 2011 However, with the Communist Party takeover of the mainland in 1949, trade was reoriented to focus on socialist countries, and the city's global influence declined. In the 1990s, the economic reforms (Economic reform in the People's Republic of China) introduced by Deng Xiaoping resulted in an intense re-development of the city, aiding the return of finance and foreign investment to the city.

Shanghai is a popular tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as The Bund, City God Temple (City God Temple of Shanghai) and Yu Garden as well as the extensive Lujiazui skyline and major museums including the Shanghai Museum and the China Art Museum.
