Chinese treasure coins like these were minted during China’s dynasties from 250 BC through 1911 AD. These are small, light 1 Cash coins from China's last, great imperial dynasty, the Ch'ing (Qing), dating from 1644 AD to 1911 AD. They are made of bronze and were used for trade throughout the Orient.
These coins were cast (made in a mold) so the square holes helped hold them in place on a wooden dowel for filing. Chinese Cash coins have been considered “Lucky” for centuries, and were often brought back from Asia by visitors for luck!
The script on the coins tells us the dynasty name and the reign title of the ruler, as well as the inscription: Circulating Treasure!
