I know nothing of Chinese coins, but this looks like a nice one. Great patina and condition.

Why do they all it cash.

What is Zheng He Tong Bao?

Thanks for your response, Doucet!

"Zheng He" refers to the 'period title' or 'regnal period' of the Emperor under whom the coin was cast.
"Tong Bao" means 'circulating currency'. Simply put, 'cash' coins were money in the same manner in which we use dollars and cents.

Very nice - I have a 1 cash of these but not a two.

Interesting chap: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empero...zong_of_Song

Didn't know one of his sons formed the Southern Song Dynasty.
