WELCOME!    
I have been a dealer specializing in Asian coins since 1966, but have not sold any modern China coins since 1999. Most of the coins below are from the collections of Daniel Ching (DC) and Joe DeMarco (DM). Both had thousands of low to medium-value coins purchased from US sources during the 1970s to early 1990s. This is only a part of my stock. High value coins I sell at auction. Coins in the $2-$50 range are HERE . The coin you see in the scan / photo is the one you will get (unless noted "SAMPLES"). If you got an email with link to this page, then you will get another when new items are added or discounts offered. I am glad to deal with collectors from all countries, but I do not read or speak Chinese.

ORDER
Everything should be in stock but occasionally I forget to remove a sold coin. You pay only the true USPS postal rates, no extra handling charges. I take most forms of payment including Visa / MC and [Paypal add 1% USA 2% Non-USA]. To order, tell me PROVINCE, Y#, and PRICE, OR copy and paste the entire line for each item into an email. Please erase the unwanted part if more than one coin is offered in a line. I will send an invoice same or next business day. No reply? Try THIS. Or see ORDERING INFO for more details. Order by phone: 425-369-1725 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM USA Pacific. All coins are guaranteed genuine and can be returned at any time if proven otherwise. (details . . .). Please return unwanted coins in one week, or let me know if you need more time for study. No discount now, even for large orders, but later I will discount unsold items.

ABOUT THE OFFERS . . .
Click on the PHOTO thumbnail to see the coin. (more . . .). Y# is similar to those shown in Standard Catalog of World Coins (KM) but I have made changes for varieties they do not show. (more references). I try to catalog accurately by KM but my DESCRIPTIONs may mention different or additional details than that work. (more on varieties . . .). GRADE shown is my own. Compare some photos to my assigned grades to see if you agree with my standards. 99% of my coins are "raw" - no slabs. (more . . .). The PROVENANCE () column shows the collection source for the coin.

BOOK   Concise Catalogue of Modern Chinese Copper Coins by Zhou Qinyuan & Li Pingwen (ZL). This Western-friendly Chinese coppers catalog features excellent, slightly-enlarged photos and Woodward references for many varieties. The level of varieties distinguished is well beyond KM but not quite as fine as Woodward, Duan, and various other Chinese works. Some (but not enough) enlarged detail panels. Unique numbering system, Renminbi valuations in five grades, Chinese text. Ponterio often references this work (CL) and in working up a huge stock recently, I found it, along with Woodward, to be the most practical reference for Western collectors.   304p, 7.5x7.5", 2012   SAMPLE PAGE     Costs about $22 to mail outside USA New    $35.00 S

Tibet section is pretty good, with many more listings than Lin & Ma.    351p, hc, 8.5x11.5", 2012   SAMPLE PAGE   Water-damaged copy: crinkling & cosmetic damage to page bottoms.

BOOK   Zhong guo xi zang qian bi tu lu (Illustrated Catalog of the Money of China's Tibet), by Yin Zheng Min (YZM) is a comprehensive variety/date catalog of Tibet & Malla coins and paper, all illustrated with color photos. Generally a finer breakdown than KM, with 91 examples of Gaden Tanka (Y13), for example. Chinese, but very little text and some photos use arrows or drawings to highlight differences. Best single Tibet catalog to date. Not well bound, so expect pages to come loose with serious use.   261p, 5.5x8.25", sc, 2004   SAMPLE PAGE     About $22 mailing cost ouside USA New, signed: $60; Slightly used: $50.00 S

Originally published as a series of articles 1926-36 in The China Journal, this is the only reprint.
