I received this from a friend and I know nothing about these other than that very old coins can look very similar to more modern coins or it may be fake.

Please correct me on orientation if need be. I appreciate any help!

Qianlong emperor, ruled most of the 18th century and produced so many coins that these may be the most numerous Chinese coin after the Wu Zhu which were made for 700 years. I used to be able to identify the mints, but forgot. Board of Revenue or Board of Works, both in Beijing.

Looks perfectly genuine to me.

I agree with Finn235. This one is from the Board of Works.

Please take a look at

about halfway down the page. The emperor known as Qianlong was also known as Kao Tsung or Ch'ien Lung, 1736-1795
