6.34 g, 28.6 mm, seal script, previously attributed to Tang dynasty (618-907 AD) but this could well be wrong - haven't been able to match to any coins in my books or online




Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you for the suggestion. They do have an excellent large section on identifying Chinese coins, and I looked through it, but still haven't been able to match this one.

Thank you both for your help.
You inspired me to do some more searching on Zeno and I had to keep broadening the weight limits. Finally found a match at https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=147047

Southern Song, Qian-dao (1165-1173) AE 2 wen, seal style

I'm going to call this one IDENTIFIED.

Thanks again for your support with this.

Not so common as the Ch'ing Dynasty cash coins that are seemingly ubiquitous. May I ask where a specimen such as this turned up?

Yes, I'm happy to be able to identify it, and that it's an unusual coin, in nice condition. To me it's quite interesting to imagine the times and places and people who used the coins. I'm sorry, I can't be very sure where it came from. A few years ago I was an active member of the Albuquerque Coin Club and purchased a couple of very small collections, as well as some odds & ends including unattributed Chinese cash coins at the semiannual coin shows, so it most likely comes from one of those sources.
