Chinese Cash Coins
South China Sea Shipwreck & Yangtze River Coins

Chinese cash coins are found anywhere there was trade with Chinese or Asian merchants, from ancient shipwrecks in the South China Sea to the Yangtze River.  Storms, wars, pirates (yes, there were Asian pirates, too!) and simple mishaps on the boats were all reasons why the coins went to the bottom. Placed in a Sterling silver bezel, they are often worn for luck by both men and women.
