Chinese cast coins
« on: March 25, 2013, 10:46:09 PM »
I have these Chinese cast coins that I'm struggling to identify if any can help out with I.D and possible value if any, this would be very much appreciated. Many thanks in advance. From left to right or top to bottom (not sure which way pictures will load) 25mm 4.22g, 24mm 4g, 23mm 3.36g & 24mm 4.03g
