Top coin is a Chinese cash in the name of emperor Kao Tsung, era Chien Lung (1736-1795), cast in Yunnan. Upper pictures should be turned 90° counterclockwise, lower picture 90° clockwise.

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

Bottom coin is a Japanese Kanei Tsuho. This coin is best presented in a separate thread.
