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.

Actually, many relics are able to be owned by anyone.

Typically, museums only want to display items that are either very rare or incredibly well preserved. This leaves many items that don't make the cut, and these are able to be owned by individuals.

While the items we sell aren't "museum grade," they still carry with them the same amount of history and uniqueness. Each relic was still hand made by a person, hundreds or even thousands of years ago.

One of our core values is not to damage or alter any of the artifacts we sell.

History needs to be preserved—after all, there is a limited amount of it that survives—but it is also something to be shared with the masses. For this reason, we put our relics in sturdy display cases that are safe to handle, but are mindful that someday the relic may need to be taken out again.

No glue or resin holds the items in place. Instead, we're developed our own method for holding the relics securely in their displays using pressure alone. In fact, any of our relics can be removed in their original condition by simply opening the display case.
