    The surface of this coin is incredibly pitted. From what research I have done, I think this was made in the Qing Dynasty. Any further information would be greatly appreciated! 6204D505-FF9D-43AB-9A92-58931C3222F3.jpeg A4CF306E-2968-48F5-9C2B-84E430CAEEAF.jpeg

    Looks like Dao Guang (1820-1850).

    Yep, that's the Dao Guang emperor, Board of Works mint. Common and not worth much (especially in that condition), but still a cool bit of history.

    Thanks everyone for helping! I am an amateur at deciphering these Chinese cash coins, and there is a wealth of knowledge to be learned.

    One thing that can help with reading Chinese characters is installing a Chinese handwriting input thing on your phone that allows you to write Chinese characters. It can be tricky and requires practice, but it’s a way to figure out which character is which.
