On Nov. 4, the commemoration coins made of silver and gold for the 2011 (the Year of Rabbit) issued by People's Bank of China became available on the market in Lhasa, capital city of Tibet Autonomous Region.

"Due to the limited circulation of such coins, our shop doesn't have all the varieties," said a staff member of the Yinqiao Gold Shop of Lhasa. "However, the coins in our shop are still quite popular among local collectors. Many regular customers would like to buy zodiac coins, which are expected to appreciate."
