Looks to be a Chinese charm. Never saw this one before. If there are better pictures, I would like to send them to a specialist in Chinese charms, Horst Grundmann, author of "Amulette Chinas und seiner Nachbarländer" (Charms of China and it's neighbouring countries)

Period title Chun Hua  990-994 Northern Song Dynasty. Definitely a charm, interesting peace though, can you scan the coin or make better pictures please. I like to see the rest of it.

Hi ,

Thanks for attributing the coin , eventhough it is charm but very mysterious.
since the day I bought it  I have been curious to reveal its mystery because of  its features that usually not available on other charm coins.(standing & sitting idols on coin- most probaly Budhha)

Weight : 7.27 gm

Anyway what is looks like - be careful, it seems to be under a witch's spell, as the "coin" always causes blurry pictures.

Dear aan09, try taking these pictures after enabling the camera's "macro" mode (represented on most cameras by a little flower icon) under natural light. I am sure you will get much better results.

Thanks for suggestion will use this  feature  again ,  previsouly I tried but results are never satisfactory for at least regarding images of these coins.

Need to develop the skill :-[ :-[

Cheers ;D
