I Don't know anything about these. They are part of a small collection of coins left behind in a house my sister moved into. Figured I may as well take them out of the drawer and share.

    Thanks for the info. You always have an answer for everything. Here's a couple more to answer, how do I authenticate the coins? how should they be stored? Right now they are in a plastic baggie sitting in a drawer.
    Thank you in advance!

    As AR said they are all Chinese. The cash coins look like they could range from the 1600's - 1800's and the 2 larger 10 cash coins would be from cica 1870 - 1912

    Also since these are all common coins and very circulated they are most likely genuine. True counterfeits of these coins would be rarer than the originals. Small coin envelopes would be the best way to store them and for recording the attributions. the Standar Catalog of World Coins (SCWC) are the best way to look these up. Check the local library, antique malls coin and hobby shops. Have fun and enjoy your self and then report your findings here.
