China Hunan Province commemorative copper coin - 1922


Recommended Posts

I happen to purchase this interesting coin.




From my understanding of this, this coin was to commemorate promulgation of the provincial constitution on 1st Jan 1922. More information can be found here: http://ykleungn.tripod.com/hunanty.htm


While it's not rare, it's not very common. It originally had more grit on it which I successfully have removed and it's showing it's nice condition. Initially I thought I would be handling this coin full of verdigris but thankfully this wasn't the case.


I've also managed to get hold of the 10 cash version but that went straight to preservation due to severe corrosion. Still, quite neat for a coin that doesn't appear in the market very often.
