This example, with hammer & sickle reverse, are still controversial issues. KM has them as "authenticity in doubt", and Wenchao (Shanghai Museum) has them as 'fabrications.' However, Duncan Raeburn in his monograph "Chinese Soviet - Coins & Notes", a work printed and read before the Numismatic Society of China in Shanghai in January 1937, shows this profile portrait coin of Lenin. I am confident that this is the first article ever describing the issues of the Chinese Soviets. Yet, these are remarkable strikes compared to all other Soviet issues. Wenchao shows them as being minted in several varieties: 1) one with 'One Yuan' reverse; 2) this one w/Hammer & Sickle rev.; 3) a mule with portraits Ob. & Rx; 4) struck in gold w/hammer & sickle Rx.
The evidence from Raeburn shows that these were struck fairly early during chaotic times. Kann (#800, 1953) also documents these profile Lenin Dollars. These facts might lead one to conclude that these issues were presentation pieces most likely with the USSR in mind. To the extent that the USSR aided the cause of revolutionary movements worldwide these pieces could have been struck as a token of gratitude. Proof-like & reeded. Money Company auction, June 1979, lot#299.
