The large plaque is some tourist rubbish, possibly made as much as 100 years ago, but more likely in the last 50 years. The large round pieces are amulets -- good luck pieces -- which have been made continuously for the past 200 years. The small round pieces are mostly genuine coins from the Ch'ing (Qing) dynasty, but only worth a dollar or so each.
