The Museum has a lot of Tai Ping so why would I post such an ugly one? Frankly, I am not sure of the authenticity of many of them but this one 'looks' authentic and is the scarcer 10 Cash size. I'll post more as time or requests are at hand, I want to present as many as I can because all references cut this series way short. Only Ma & Ma in their landmark work (translated as) "Encyclopedia of Tai Ping Currency" indicate the varieties at hand. They also show other associated Triad Secret Societies such as the Heaven & Earth, Golden Coin, Small Sword and others. They document fakes, fantasies, presentation pieces, and later private issues. I've spent considerable sums to have the work translated - so look for it in the Library. Be sure to read the monogragh by Helen Wang - "Coins and Membership tokens of the Heaven and Earth Society", it's in the Library.


The history of the leader and the movement that killed at least 20 million people, is incredibly fascinating! The leader, Hong XiuQuan, came to believe that he was the son of the Judeo-Christian God and younger brother of Jesus Christ! Considering the opium forced upon the Chinese (mainly by British traders) and then this radical political and religious rebellion, is it any wonder that the Chinese are wary of Western intentions? I'll eventually have a monograph written on this subject.
