The set will comprise three gold coins and two silver ones.

The obverse of the coins features China's national emblem, set in a frieze of peonies, symbols of prosperity in Chinese culture.

The reverse includes various designs including a rocket, a satellite, a high-speed train and the Beijing Olympic Stadium.

Other forms will show designs of an open gate, a bridge or urban construction, with Chinese characters saying: In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, 1949-2009.

All together 60,700 gold coins will be issued with face values of 10,000 yuan, 2,000 yuan, and 100 yuan.

A total of 106,000 silver coins will be issued with the face values of 300 and 10 yuan.
