Three Chinese cash
« on: April 12, 2012, 10:58:17 PM »
Three more coins from the numismatique.com site. I think the owner is quite right to believe that these are sapeques (cash) from Annam (French Indo China). Can we give them a KM number or at least an emperor?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

coin on the right is Chien Yen, Southern Sung quite early 12th cent - China.
Since that one is earlier than usually found how about these for the other two,
Left maybe Hsuan Ho 1101-1125 (Northern Sung)
Middle coin - and this really is a guess - Chia Ting - Southern Sung?

Where's Martin when you need him...?

The Chinese sung differently, Dale. :)

I believe the left coin is Remmelts 102 or 104 (depending on size), emperor Hui Tsung, era Hsuan Ho (1119-1125.)

I think the middle coin is not Chinese. I read the reverse text as 30 or 13 (depending on which side is up.)

On the right, I see Remmelts 105 or 106 (depending on size), emperor Kao Tsung, era Chien Yen (1127-1130.)
