    Welcome to Tnet!! The war nickel is cool, but not worth much. Post the Chinese coin over on the What Is It Forum, There's a guy over that can tell you what it is.

    Welcome to Tnet.

    Your coin is a 'cash' from the last Emperor of China, born as “PuyŪ” in 1906 and reigning as Xuāntong (Hsuan-t’ung) 宣統. He came to the throne as an infant in 1908 and was forced into abdication in 1912 by the Xinhai Revolution, shortly after which cast cash coins like this pretty much stopped being issued.

    Xuāntong was allowed by the new provisional government of the Republic of China to retain the title of ‘Emperor’ until 1924 and temporarily restored as such for a brief period during July 1917, before being installed as head of the puppet state of Manchukuo until the end of WWII. He was taken prisoner by the Russians and ultimately repatriated to China in 1950, where he spent 10 years in a correctional prison for war criminals before his death in 1967.

    PS: not tremendously valuable I'm afraid. The 1 cash coin was just under 24mm diameter and might be sold for between $5-10 in that condition. The 2 cash coin was a little over 26mm in diameter and is scarcer. Perhaps up to triple the price for a 1 cash (if you were buying, not selling).
