These images have been taken directly from [S] Fredrik Schjoth. Chinese currency. Oslo, 1929. This is because they are far clearer than pictures of actual coins, which can be worn or corroded, thus making them hard to read. These grey scale pictures also take up much less memory than a JPEG so load far quicker. To save yourself time please print the following pages. Then use the links on the Coins Home page to find out more about your coin.

This section of the web site is divided into three parts

1. Liao Dynasty to Ch'ing Dynasty
2. Northern and Southern Sung
3. Chou Dynasty to The Five Dynasties

If you can't find your coin here then try the Japanese or Annamese pages.
If you still can't find your coin then it is probably either a Japanese or Annamese coin I don't have or a Charm.
