Kwangtung or Yunnan province
« on: June 26, 2018, 12:12:49 PM »
Gentleman,

https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=206240

Strange coin. Obverse says in Chinese that it is 1/2 Hao of Kwangtung Province 1921. Reverse claims in English that it is Yunnan province. Numista says that it is Jiao and 1923 (https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces36554.html).

Basically, the obverse side of this coin belongs to Kwangtung Province 5 cents coin dated 10th year of ROC = 1921, Krause Y# 421, and the reverse side belongs to Yunnan Province 5 cents coin dated 12th year of ROC = 1923, Krause Y# 485.

Is it a real coin or modern fake?

Best regards,
Alexander

Thanks a lot! I was also thinking that it is a modern fake with a mistake.
