Opinion on My Coin - Kublai Cash- Hartill 19.14
« on: March 26, 2015, 07:09:09 PM »
I wanted to hear some opinions on this coin. I really think its of great rarity and requires the opinions of people of greater knowledge than my own. Thank you for taking the time to look and comment.

28 mm x 8.19 grams

Reference :Hartill 19.14

From Primal Trek

"This coin is from the reign of Kublai Khan (Emperor Shi Zu) (1260-1294) of the Yuan Dynasty.

The inscription (je ├╝en tung baw) is written in the Mongol script (Phags-pa). The equivalent Chinese inscription iszhi yuan tong bao (至元通宝).

The size of the coin indicates that it has a value of "2 cash" which means it was equal to two regular cash coins.

These coins were cast during the years 1285-1294
."

You're good to go here.   Catalog value in Zhongguo Guqian Daji is 1500 Chinese yuan.   That values things on the low side.   Everything is exactly what it should be including patina.

Thanks Bgriff. I am extremely pleased to add this coin to my collection.

Now I just have to find an 8th century Japanese coin!
