Hi!

I would say this is a genuine coin but I'm not so sure of that.

Wait for other member's opinion. There are better experts than me.

The amulet would politely be termed "later made". The base metal, crude casting and artificial patina show it is not from Kang Xi period (17th century). Probably made in last 20 years, but many of these "later made" charms were made in the Republic period (1920's-1930's).

Hi Bearcat,

I see. Thanks for you knowledge. If it's a modern made coin, it consider a fake coin.

Anyway thanks you.
