Dragon coin

I took out a packet of coins which was mixed. My worker helped me to sort out those coins into their separate denomination. 

After a short while, she showed me this special coin which she found among those coins. I was amazed as I haven't come across this special coin.

When I googled about it, I found out that it's actually the

Ten Cash Fukien 1901-1905 Chinese Dragon Coin



I love the print of the dragon which is considered very auspicious for Chinese.


The reverse side has Chinese characters but I don't understand it.
I am going to keep this special coin...
It must be very valuable..

  18. earlier this year i went to flea market. Saw RM5 notes old one with the "t" at the back . It was selling for RM45!. This note was out around 1993/94.

    hence your coin 1901 must be super valueable leh
