China, Qing Dynasty, Sheng Zu, The Kangxi Emperor, 1662 - 1722
|China|, |China,| |Qing| |Dynasty,| |Sheng| |Zu,| |The| |Kangxi| |Emperor,| |1662| |-| |1722|,
The Kangxi Emperor is considered one of China's greatest emperors. According to tradition, while the Emperor Shen Zu was intimately associated with the European missionaries, he grew contempt for Buddhism and had a set of 18 brass images of the Luo-han Arhat (the 18 "vernerable" attendants of Buddha) melted down and cast into cash. The brass was said to contain a considerable portion of gold. Although analysis has shown that these coins do not contain any gold, great demand for these "Lohan cash" persists in China.
