Schjöth 1431, Hartill 27.64-65 Type 1, KM 326
Kangxi (1662-1722)

1 cash (cast brass), 1667-1670, Zhili province (Jizhou mint), 27.5 mm.

Obv: Kangxi tongbao.

Rev: Gi (in Manchurian) to the left, ji (in Chinese) to the right.

Type 1 (the only type at this mint issued by Kangxi) is comprised of coins with a nominal weight of 1.4 qian (= 5.22 grams).

This is one of a series of twenty coins known as poem coins (shi qian), which, according to folklore, have talismanic qualities when placed together. The coins were put in a specific order in which the mint names formed a poem. The poem did not have a particular meaning, but rhymed according to the rules of classical Chinese poetry.
