I have found this coin that on the front has the words 'ARMIS EXPOSCERE PACEM' around the top of a picture of a Shield of the United Kingdom front of arms and under a Palm tree. Below this is the word 'CHINA'. On the reverse is simply the word 'CHINA' and the date '1842'. The diameter of the coin is about 19mm. I have tried to look this up but am not having much luck valuing it so any help would be gratefull please.

Thanks, laura

Hi laura :art: this is not my area of collecting but this pagehttp://anglochinesewar42.com/index.php?p=1_11_CHINA-MEDAL-1842 shows the weight 34 gm & size 36 mm. of the genuine silver medal. I suspect what you have is a modern minature 18.55mm cast copy like this one http://www.medal-medaille.com/product_info.php?cPath=247&products_id=5519


Sorry, I hope I am wrong but......
