gxseries Posted September 20, 2006 Report Share Posted September 20, 2006 Now, I think I got hit by another bug: unusual coins. One of my Chinese friends that I start to know quite recently comes from Tsing Tao and I decided to do some coin research from that area. Tsing Tao was at one stage occupied by the Germans in in the early 1900s. Now how is this related to numismatics? Sure thing, there was only one year type coins minted in 1909, which are 5 and 10 cents. http://www.worldcoingallery.com/countries/...0Cents%20(1909) http://www.worldcoingallery.com/countries/...0Cents%20(1909) Now notice, they are quite unusual designs! German designs at the reverse and Chinese design on the obverse? That's pretty neat I say. It seems that they aren't too easy to find, yet some PROOF coins are listed on the Internet. Now, does anyone know where to find them? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
