    My Grandfather gave me this coin, a (so called) 17th Century Chinese Wedding Coin.
    On the top the tag reads, "China (17th Century) Wedding Coin PHUNG HOP TUYET NGUYET"
    The picture is of the front and back of the coin, with the back being next to your average-day nickle.
    I was wondering if anyone could explain to me what this may be worth and even give me some input on any information on it, if possible.

    Not my specialty at all, but I like the reverse :devil: The true meaning of "coin porn".

    You can find them on ebay for $4.25
    I also bought one or 2 of these in QuinNhon, Vietnam in 1966 for about that same amount.

    First, welcome to the neighborhood, Joseph!

    You do realize that this thread is more than 4 years old, don't you?
