3 Chinese Cash Coins

Recommended Posts

Here are three more cash coins that I am unable to identify. If anyone knows anything about these coins the information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time!!

These all appear to be Board of Revenue mint cash coins from the Qing dynasty - the first is emperor K'ang Hsi (c. 1700), the second Chia Ch'ing (c. 1800) and the third is a bit of a puzzle as the bottom character of the reign name is Chih, which suggests T'ung Chih (1862-1875) but the upper character is wrong - although it is in the style of a Qing cash and has the Boo Cio-wan (Board of Revenue mint) on the reverse.

Yep, all three are Board of Revenue:


1. Kangxi (1661-1722)

2. Jiaqing (1796-1820)

3. Shunzhi (1644-1661)


My spellings are different as I'm using pinyin romanization (most older books and references based on older books including Krause use Wade-Giles romanization)
