Java Hoard Collection

The Java Hoard Collection included 90 different Chinese cash coin types all said to have been selected from a single hoard found on Java. We received them without identifying tags but arranged in a binder in Hartill order, making it easier for us to identify them and add our FORVM flips and tags.

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

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.
