China 1918 Hubei 50 cash - rather unusual coin


Recommended Posts

Picked this coin up:




This is a rather difficult coin to find in better condition. This coin was modelled after Sichuan 50 cash which you can see an exmaple here:




While I haven't been throughly reading the history of different Chinese Provinces, it might be one of the coins struck during the chaotic warlord era. Quite fascinating.


Wikipedia's page might give a good start: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warlord_era


Got a feeling that it might have been one of the military governors that wanted to take his idea of establishing such coins from Sichuan to Hubei.
