Here are the characters for the date. There is a table of cyclical dates in KM, in the introduction of the China chapter.

Overlord is right.
It is 143a.6
There is no HAH on it (it would be 143a.7 then)

Am I misinterpreting something or is the weight given as 1 mace 4 candareens in English and 4 mace 4 candareens in Chinese?

I had that coin in the 1950's when still at school, I always thought that 1 mace & 44 candareens was the denomination rather than the weight  ::)
Notice I put 44 instead of 4.4 as I only recently noticed it was 4.4  :o
