Uighurstan coinage


Recommended Posts

Uighurstan or better known as East Turkestan was a state that was formed during a rebellion for a mere period of 4 months. The Chinese will be annoyed to hear this word as they pretend that this history has never existed in the first place.


Here's a better history on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Turkestan


One coin example can be seen here: http://www.vcoins.com/world/civitas/store/viewItem.asp?idProduct=14319


Fair number of these coins were supposedly overstruck over Sichuan coins but Uighurstan coins in any condition are tough to find in any condition. They command easily hundreds of dollars in any grade so if your dealer has one in his junk box, you know what to grab. :)


I actually have a nice example that came in this week but still don't have a camera handy... :wallbash:
