Help for identification of Chinese coin
« on: May 03, 2018, 10:21:05 AM »
Hi collectors :),
I found this coin, I think that it came from China.
It has a diameter of mm. 26,70 and a weight of gr. 6,87. The edge is only partially reeded.
Do you consider it a genuine coin? Could you help me to find a correct classification?
Thanks in advance to anyone who will bring his opinion in my topic ;)

The Chinse Soviet Republic of Kiangsi (Consolidate Soviet Republic), 5 fen ND (around 1932), Y 507.1, variant with Hainan island at 6 o'clock. Hard to say without having the coin in hand, but it looks genuine to me. These are emergency issues, so an incomplete edge doesn't mean much.

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

Hi Peter :),
thanks very much for your precious indications.
Are size and weight corresponding to a genuine issue?

Don't know about size, but weight is perfectly acceptable. While many Chinese Soviet coins are hard to find and extensively imitated, this type is common.
