Coins of Asia
China, Northern Song Dynasty, Emperor Shen Zong, 1067 - 1085 A.D.

|China|, |China,| |Northern| |Song| |Dynasty,| |Emperor| |Shen| |Zong,| |1067| |-| |1085| |A.D.||2| |cash|NEW
Shenzong implemented Wang Anshi's famous reforms aimed at improving life for the peasantry and unemployed. He was initially successful against the Tangut Empire but Shenzong's forces were defeated at the City of Yongle battle of 1082. As a result, the Xixia forces grew more powerful and would be a thorn on the side of the Song dynasty in the ensuing decades.

|China|, |China,| |Northern| |Song| |Dynasty,| |Emperor| |Zhen| |Zong,| |997| |-| |1022| |A.D.
||1| |cash|NEW
Emperor Zhenzong's reign was noted for the consolidation of power and the strengthening of the Song Empire. The empire prospered, and its military might was further reinforced. However, it would also mark the beginning of a foreign policy towards the Khitan-led Liao dynasty in the north that would ultimately result in humiliation. At the end of his reign, he was ill but retained the power to rule. Thus, rule was often in the hands of his third wife, Empress Liu.
CH98307. Bronze 1 cash, Gorny NS 06, Hartill 16.49, Schjoth 471, Fisher 881, aF, deposits, weight 4.191 g, maximum diameter 24.4 mm, die axis 0o, 1004 - 1007 A.D.; obverse Jing De yuan bao, regular script, clockwise; reverse plain; $4.00 (€3.28)

|Japan|, |Japan,| |Musashi| |Province,| |Edo,| |Kameido,| |1668| |-| |1683,| |Shin| |Kanei| |Tsuho,| |Bun| |Sen||1| |mon|
The new Kanei was first cast in the village of Kameido in A.D. 1668, just outside of Tokyo. The Daibutsu image of Buddha was destroyed by an earthquake in 1662 and these coins were made from the remaining metal making it a highly desirable coin. It is thought to contain small amounts of gold or silver and is sought after for that reason too.

Japan, Edo Period, c. 1626 - 1738, Kanei Tsuho

|Japan|, |Japan,| |Edo| |Period,| |c.| |1626| |-| |1738,| |Kanei| |Tsuho||1| |mon|
In 1636, the Tokugawa shogunate introduced the Kanei Tsuho coin to standardize copper coins and maintain a sufficient coin supply. These coins, the first government minted copper coins in 700 years, became the daily currency of the common people used for small payments. Although the Kanei era ended in 1643, coins continued to bear the Kanei Tsuho legend for 230 years. Kanei Tsuho produced before 1668, "old Kanei" coins, are recognizable by their consistent calligraphic style. Kanei Tsuho coins after 1668, "new Kanei" coins, have more diverse calligraphic styles. From 1738 government authorized iron Kanei Tsuho 1 mon coins, and in 1866 iron 4 mon Kanei Tsuho were authorized.

|China|, |China,| |Northern| |Song| |Dynasty,| |Emperor| |Zhen| |Zong,| |998| |-| |1022| |A.D.||1| |cash|
Zhenzong's reign was noted for consolidation of power and strengthening the Song Empire. The empire prospered, and its military might reinforced. However, 1004, the Khitans waged war. Zhenzong struck back but despite initial successes, in 1005, concluded the humiliating Shanyuan Treaty. The treaty brought over a century of peace, but at the price of an inferior position to the Liao Empire, and an annual tribute of 100,000 ounces of silver and over 200,000 bolts of silk. The admission of inferiority would come to plague the foreign affairs of the Song Empire, while the payments slowly depleted the empire's coffers.
