    Can anyone tell me the type of coin, date, and approximate value of these coins? The only information I've been able to fine is that they are from the Qing Dynasty and are from there mid 1800s.

    I’m not an expert but I think these were more ritual in purpose. I don’t think they are dated. But I’ll cede to someone who knows more than me about these.

    I'm not sure if those are replicas or not.
    But authentic Qing Dynasty coppers retail for about $1 at my local shops.
    These two say "道光" (Daoguang 1820-1850) "宣統" (Xuantong = Puyi, 1908-1912)
    Most Puyi coins I see are minted rather than cast.
    Because of his short reign, his coins are probably a bit more desirable than most.

    Both are standard 1 cash circulating coins, both are Board of Revenue mint. Left (smaller) is Xuantong (1909-1912), right (larger) is Daoguang (1821-1850).
