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..

A customer exchanged his coins for notes.Delete

but too bad, the one you had did not print which year it was produced.. anyway, it's from the years of the Guang Xu Emperor, who was the 2nd last emperor of china from 1871 till 1908..ReplyDelete

Oh, old coin! My dad loves to collect coins and notes.ReplyDelete
Now talking about antique coins, I must go home and look for my dad's collection.Delete
He actually passed me his coins when I was young, he was encouraging me to have a hobby back then. I used to collect stamps, haha!
I collected stamps, coins and notes too when I was young. Now..no more..Delete
wow a rare coin is that is?ReplyDelete
well someone must have though of it as the usual coin and used it for their payment
It's not collected from payment. Someone came to exchange his bag of coins for notes.Delete
I checked on that link you included well it sure is from china so it traveled that far up to your place huh does it looks synonymous on your coins?ReplyDelete

Is it an original dragon coin? There are those fengshui coins with a square hole in the middle but they are not the original coins but celup ones.ReplyDelete
it's definitely original and it's rather heavy too..Delete
wow!!! customer exchange this coin? over looked or what?ReplyDelete
maybe that person thought it's useless..Delete
It's an old coin wor...must be very valuable. Maybe should bring to antique shop and checkReplyDelete
ok..I might do that..Delete
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.ReplyDelete
hence your coin 1901 must be super valueable leh

Did you check how much it is valued now?ReplyDelete
SK said it's RM1K.. :)Delete
