Thank you so much! So this one could be worth a little more than 5 cents then. Why do most people never comment on something good you have but they love it when you have something bad...lol. I appreciate your reply and sharing the link. But really, it's just fun and I don't expect to get rich off of it but, I mean, if I did....it would be ok.
It's a cool coin. I've found quite a few of them in bulk lots. I like the little map of Taiwan. It's another common coin, but there's nothing wrong with it, and it is rather exotic looking, isn't it?
Yes it is. I love the old maps anyway. I collect old anything and don't have many maps but plenty of old books with old maps. I collect original art and have run out of places to store it safely, antiques, 19th century clocks, lots of things. I do try to make money with the things I can bare to part with.
Looks like old Mr. Chiang there. I can read some of what it says. Obverse: Chong Hoa Min Guo 43 Year, 5 Month 20 Day. On the reverse is a map of the island of Taiwan or Formosa and the character on the right is a 5. Picture is upside down. I have been to Taiwan more times than I can count and it is a great place.
wow....ok, thank you! Would love to travel there one of these days.
Oh, I just remembered. The unit of money is the Tai Pi, or called in English NT or New Taiwan Dollar. That coin is probably of a lesser value, I would guess 1/2 NT. Yuan or Ren Min Bi is a mainland China unit of money.
