Hello!  N25

I recently saw this gorgeous brocade box at an estate sale and within were these 2 Chinese coins. They seem to be brass with some kind of black matte coating over them. Any help in identification would be extremely appreciated!  N20

Thanks,
HOTArtifacts

These medals were made with powder metallurgy technology, in large numbers, by private mints. The value is very low.

These are privately made medals depicting sites in Hangchow (Hangzhou), China. Made as souvenirs since the 1980's.
