This cowrie form is nicknamed Ant Nose Money and the specific type is nicknamed the Ghost Face Coin. The "face" is actually the characters "Gui Lian Qian." David Hartill notes, "They have been found in areas to the south of the Yellow River corresponding to the State of Chu in the Warring States period. One hoard was of some 16,000 pieces. Their weight is very variable, and their alloy often contains a high proportion of lead."

China, Southern Song Dynasty, Emperor Li Zong, 1225 - 1264 A.D.

|China|, |China,| |Southern| |Song| |Dynasty,| |Emperor| |Li| |Zong,| |1225| |-| |1264| |A.D.||1| |cash|NEW
The government of the Southern Song was forced to establish a new capital city because of the Mongal invasions, at Lin'an (present day Hangzhou) which wasn't near any sources of copper so the quality of the coins produced under the Southern Song significantly deteriorated compared to the cast copper coins of the Northern Song dynasty. As the Mongols started to advance Southwards the last 3 emperors of the Song dynasty did not cast any coins as they had neither the time to set up any mints nor the resources to produce any cast coins.

China, Jin Dynasty, Emperor Wan Yan Liang, 1149 - 1161 A.D.

|China|, |China,| |Jin| |Dynasty,| |Emperor| |Wan| |Yan| |Liang,| |1149| |-| |1161| |A.D.||1| |cash|NEW
The Jin dynasty, the Great Jin, ruled north eastern China 1115 to 1234. Its name is sometimes written as Kin, Jurchen Jin or Jinn to differentiate it from an earlier Chinese dynasty with the same name. Its rulers were Jurchen. After vanquishing the Liao, the Jin launched an over one hundred-year struggle against the Song dynasty, in southern China. Over the course of their rule, the Jurchens of Jin adapted to Chinese customs. They fortified the Great Wall but the Mongols invaded under Genghis Khan in 1211 and inflicted catastrophic defeats. The Jin seemed to suffer a never-ending wave of defeats, revolts, defections, and coups, but proved tenacious. The Jin finally succumbed to Mongol conquest 23 years later in 1234.Great_Jin

|China|, |China,| |Western| |Han| |Dynasty,| |206| |B.C.| |-| |25| |A.D.||5| |zhu|NEW
Shang Lin San Guan refers to the Three Offices of Shang Lin Park which were the Office for Coinage, the Office for Sorting Copper, and the Office of Price Equalization. Minting was now confined to the central authorities. These coins usually have a raised rim on the top of the hole on the obverse. Their quality was so high that forgery became unprofitable except to true artisans, great villains, or thieves. All earlier coins were to be melted down and the copper taken to Shang Lin. -- Chinese Cast Coins by David Hartill
