Every year, the local coin clubs here in Brisbane put on a combined display booth at the ANDA coin show. I try to put something in every year, This year, I've chosen Chinese (and other East Asian) Cash Coins, starting from the pre-Qin ban liangs all the way through to the final series of machine-struck cash. It's not "comprehensive", but it's something I could display that was reasonably "complete", in the sense of all the major dynasties and time periods being present.

Excellent display! I have done these before for coin shows and I know how much work is involved.

Excellent display.
I would like to see a close up of the individual write up of one or two coins that you may select.

I have a collection of about 200 cash coins, covering all Dynasties and most Emperors. (hence my interest)

All of my coins are in 2x2's, fully identified using Schjoth. My writing is abysmally poor, unfortunately.

Well done I once set up a display of ancient Romans in my school, it took over two weeks, but it looked awesome. If I can dig up the pics I'll post. I have about 25 of these that a picked up for $1 a piece. I always wondered if I had any that were valuable (dollar wise).

@sap, well done. I really like that you include similar cast cash coins from neighboring countries.

To save on download quotas, it's probably easier and more useful if I copy-and-paste the text straight onto the forum.

Tang Dynasty - The Kai Yuan Tong Bao coinage was issued for most of the period of rule of the dynasty (AD 621-907) with only slight variations in calligraphic style - the longest ever time period of issue of a single unchanged coin design, anywhere in the world. (Kai Yuan tong bao, c.730)

Five Dynasties Ten Kingdoms - Another period of anarchy followed the collapse of Tang rule in 907, with five dynasties in rapid succession in the north, while the south of the country split into several petty states. (Southern Tang Kingdom, (Tang Guo tong bao, 937-975)

Song Dynasty - Chinese calligraphy reached it's zenith during the Song Dynasty, and their coins are generally considered the most artistic in the series. Each emperor had numerous reign-names, and each reign-name has numerous calligraphic styles. (Tian Shen yuan bao, 1023-1032)

Southern Song Dynasty - Invaders from the north breached the Great Wall and overthrew the Song Dynasty in 1127, the remnants of the Song court fled south and maintained control of the southern half of China until 1279. Iron coins are common during this period. (Chun Xi tong bao, 1174-1189)
