Hi Marc

This is the reply I got from my Chinese friend , he thinks it’s Japanese ...?

“ In regards the coin, most of Chinese coins are bronze coins . Your coin looks like iron coin , only Han and Qin Dynasty ( about 2000 year ago) have such coin will simple character as following photo shows:

And in the later dynasty , the iron and bronze coin always cast with complicate Chinese character ,but still could identify:

I could not identify the character on your coin, but think it is just part of Chinese character, whether it is a Japanese ancient coin ? “

Sorry if the wording sounds a bit odd

Thanks mate! Yeah i was thinking it may be Japanese. This coin is brass or bronze though. Rings up a 19 on the nox

The reverse that you've shown matches that of a lot of 1700-1800's Chinese coins but none of the ones I found had a similar obverse - you've got the closest I've seen & the reverse does match the general time period. thumbsup

Maybe you have to take it to a coin expert and get it appraised
This is a Malay coin, its similar but not the same as your coin.

Damn that is a good match, clap thumbsup

did they ever counterfeit coins in those days ?

Could it be a rough copy ?
Would that be rare if it was faked ?


Still looking for Captain Feather-swords treasure chest !
