XIAN FENG ZHONG BAO 50 CASH Bao Ning
« on: November 14, 2017, 11:53:22 AM »
Please help me with this coin. I found the coin a few years ago. I could not find any online information about it. I only figure out "Bao Ning Ju". Does someone have knowledge about it? Thank you in advance.

this is a fake coin and could be old fake. the design is for Bao Fu, i.e. Fujian mint.  Interestingly, the headquarter of Tiaping rebellion was in Nanjing, which is supposed to be where he mint Ning located. So Mint Ning can not make any big cash coin from  Qing government.

Thanks. I have seen similar coins made from Mint Ning (please check the pictures attached). But this one is a hand engraved, not a quantity production. I'd really like to hear more discussions on this topic, just for fun. Appreciate your comment.
