An Intro to Asian Numismatics – The Basics With Young Numismatist Tristan Tang @OrientalNumismatist

I wanted to learn more about the basics of Asian numismatics, so when Tristan Tang ( ) wrote an article in the PCGS Rare Coin Market YN Corner, I thought it would be cool to speak with a younger numismatist on a topic of their choice. I learned a bunch, as I have not done too much research into the landscape of Asian coinage and currency, and hope that you do as well! I look forward to trying to learn more with Tristan and other specialists in Asian numismatics over interviews in the future.

  1. This is my favorite interview of yours! I have just started collecting Taiwanese and mainland ROC coinage and I have so much to learn!

  2. If you have an interview with him again, could you inquire about spotting fakes? He seems to have techniques for this
