China is tomorrow set to issue its first group of gold and silver commemorative coins for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing.
The set consists of nine coins, all legal tender, the People's Bank of China has revealed.
All the coins will feature the official emblem of Beijing 2022 on the obverse, decorated with designs of the Great Wall and snowflakes.
The reverse is inscribed with different pictures, denominations and Chinese characters reading "The 24th Winter Olympics".
One of the gold coins, which is 60 millimetres in diameter, contains 150 grams of pure gold and has a face value of CNY2,000 (£228/$304/€254), with a maximum issuing limit of 1,000.
