China, Northern Song Dynasty, Emperor Hui Zong, 1101 - 1126 A.D
|"Round as the heavens, square as the earth," is a Chinese saying used to metaphorically describe the fabric of the coins. On the practical side, it was discovered very early that a square hole fit a square shaft, which enabled a stacked quantity of coins to be turned on a lathe to remove casting irregularities. |
The slender gold script was the personal calligraphy style of the Emperor Hui Zong.
