Dear Bro


I have a coin from my brother whom he claim to be very similar to the coin reported in the newspaper as per attached. Would appreciate if the experts here could help me in the verfication and the market value of such coin.

Two very different pieces.


The article discusses a 3 qian 6 fen (5 cents) silver coin of a specific issue (looks like Kirin province, Guang Xu year 27), while the piece you show is a very common and well worn copper coin of 20 wen from the Board of Revenue mint in Beijing.


The 20 wen coin depicted, in that condition, would be worth less than a dollar.
