Hi, this is out of my wheelhouse, but hoping someone on the forum could chime in. A friend asked if I knew anything, and I thought only enough to be wrong and cause a problem. Their grandson is getting into coins and I wanted to be right for them.

Measures a large ~1.75' and 31g, so not small.

Could be Chinese, but could be Japanese, Vietnames, etc too? Could be a total fantasy piece? Someone please help!




My hoard of '82s is up to 204! 218 BC x 1, 118 BC x 3, 18 BC x 1, 82 x 1, 182 x 1, 282 x 2, 382 x 1, 582 x 2, 682 x 1, 782 x 2, 882 x 1, 982 x 4, 1082 x 1 1182 x 8, 1282 x 2, 1382 x 1, 1482 x 5, 1582 x 13, 1682 x 15, 1782 x 57, 1882 x 49, 1982 x 33

It's not a coin. What you have here is a "coin-like charm" - it resembles a coin, or at least, the obverse resembles a coin. The reverse, the side with the eight characters on it, is the giveaway that it is not a true coin - no Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese or Korean cash coins have eight characters on the reverse.

Larger pieces like this are usually made for attaching to the walls or beams of a house.
