Origin: This collection spans almost all of China's Imperial Period, a 2,000 year stretch of time from China's unification under the Qin dynasty (221 BC) to the end of the Qing dynasty (1912 CE).
Included in this set are two coins each from ancient dynasties (Han and Xin), medieval dynasties (Tang and Song), and early modern dynasties (Ming and Qing). The specific emperor you receive will be random, but is guaranteed to date from within the given time period.
These six coins do an excellent job of showing the evolution of both Chinese money and writing. Remarkably, China kept the same square-holed coin design for over two millennia, showing the enduring usefulness of these copper "cash" coins.
Each collection comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, as well as info cards for each coin.
