Coins of Asia
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|, |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

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.

China, Warring States, Yan State, 300 - 220 B.C.

|China|, |China,| |Warring| |States,| |Yan| |State,| |300| |-| |220| |B.C.||1| |hua|
The history of Yan began in the Western Zhou in the early first millennium B.C. After the authority of the Zhou king declined in the 8th century B.C., Yan survived and became one of the strongest states in China. Its capital was Ji (now Beijing). During the Warring States period, the court was also moved to another capital at Xiadu at times. Despite the wars, Yan survived through the Warring States period. In 227 B.C., with Qin troops on the border after the collapse of Zhao, Crown Prince Dan sent an assassin to kill the king of Qin, hoping to end the threat. The mission failed. Surprised and enraged by such a bold act, the king of Qin determined to destroy Yan. The Yan army was crushed at the frozen Yi River, Ji fell the following year and King Xi fled to the Liaodong Peninsula. In 222 B.C., Liaodong fell and Yan was totally conquered by Qin. Yan was the third to last state to fall, and with its destruction the fates of the remaining two kingdoms were sealed. In 221 B.C., Qin conquered all of China, ending the Warring States period and founding the Qin dynasty. Yan experienced a brief period of independence after the collapse of the Qin dynasty in 207 B.C., but was eventually absorbed by the victorious Han.Yan State Map

|Japan|, |Japan,| |Yamashiro| |Province,| |Kenninji,| |1653| |-| |1668,| |Ko| |Kanei| |Tsuho||1| |mon|NEW
In 1636, the Tokugawa shogunate introduced official Kanei Tsuho coins to standardize copper coins and maintain a sufficient coin supply. Failure to accept the coins at the designated value of 4,000 to one ryo of gold was punishable by fines and ten days imprisonment and everyone in the village of the offender would also be punished. Needless to say the new coins were quickly accepted. The first issues, called Ko Kanei (Old Kanei), were minted from 1636 until 1668. Production was on a contract basis and a tax was payable in proportion to the quantity produced. The calligraphy on these earliest Kanei Tsuho was very consistent and no mintmarks were used, but some types can be attributed to specific mints by slight variations. Shin Kanei (New Kanei) were cast from 1668 until at least 1869. The later coins had much greater variation in calligraphy and frequently included mintmarks.
