Hey All

 

A co worker of mine brought this coin to me today saying its real old.He said after checking the net he dates it about 700 A.d. I find it hard to believe and asked him if i could check it out myself. I think its Chinese,but other than that no idea. It has a weight of 1.1g and a diameter of 1.9cm.

Can anyone help IDing this coin?

 

 

Best regards

 

Jeff..

Late 20th century Chinese inspired "charm". These are used in temples there as offerings, even now. You buy these on strings and can either wear them around your neck or place them at shrines in Taoist or Buddhist temples.
