    1796-1820 Chinese coin

    I found this coin last Tuesday in downtown Liberty Mo. I was really surprised how old it is!

    Emperor JEN TSUNG
    AD 1796-1820
    Reign title: CHAI-CH'ING, AD 1796-1820

    S-1489 (but no star), "BOO CIOWAN" (Board of Revenue mint). The manchurian mint name translates to Pao-Ch'uan, or "The Fountain head of the Currency"

    Congrats on your wonderfully old coin! It would be fascinating to know the full story behind it & how long it was buried. HH Andi

    Nice Find !!
    That's an Emperor whose coinage I've not found.
    Chinese coins were popular as jewelery and keepsakes in the Victorian era
    with the opening of the China Trade.
    Strange that regardless of how old, they seem to inspire little interest in MD forums
    I like them Congrats !!!
    Desire is oft more pleasant than acquisition
