2020 Solomon Chinese Grottoes 4-Gold Coin Set
The tradition of Buddhism in China dates back about 2000 years. Over the course of centuries innumerable caves and works of arts originated and became sacred Buddhist sites. Four of them are world-renowned UNESCO World Heritage sites and are honoured in this 9999 gold coin set! The Longmen Grottoes near the old capital Luoyang are among the four most famous Buddhist grottoes in China. The other three are the Moyao Caves in Duhuang, the Yungang Caves in Datong and the Dazu Caves in Chongqing. The construction of the caves took about 400 years. There are a total of 2,345 niches and over 100,000 Buddha statues. One thing is for sure: All of them are of inestimable artistic and historic value!
