Some of the beautiful scenery along the Yangtze River which will disappear underwater in China's mammoth Three Gorges Dam project is to be commemorated on an issue of four silver coins. The People's Bank of China is issuing limited sets of the commemorative coins, with sales starting tomorrow. The four rectangular coins together form a complete view of the gorges.
