    Hi there, I have a really interesting Yuan Shih Kai coin. I was wondering if you could tell me more about it. Can you please help? Is there an email I can send the pics too?

    I have a Japanese Meiji Yen that (to me) looks exactly like the first one pictured in your article with all Chinese writing. On the dragon side of the coin the left stroke of this 圆 character is too short – so I am assuming it is a type one. Which character specifies the year? I I believe it is the 1870 but I would like to be sure. And could you tell me what a near mint coin like this could be worth? Thank you so much for your wonderful article!!!

    Hi Karen, indeed if the left stroke is shorter, this will be a Type 1 coin. The characters specifying the year are “明治三年”, literaly “3rd year of Meiji era”. Since the emperor Mutsuhito ascended the throne in 1867, this means 1870 in our calendar. If your coin is near mint, you can probably sell it within $500 – $800 USD, depending of its eye appeal.

    I found these three coins in the Internet:
    Do you think 40€, (44$) is to much?
    A Answer would be nice.
    Sorry for my bad english…

  5. BlackSky says:

    The Price is for all the three coins together 44$.

    How many spines are on the regular strike, so you know if you have an extra spike?

    When they say “Short Spine” where are they talking about and how can you tell if it’s short or normal?

    Thank you!!
