Zheng Chenggong (1651 - 1670), attributed to Koxinga. Yong Li Tong Bao, 2 Cash seal script - RARE!
Prince of Tang had given Zheng the imperial surname of Zhu in 1645. From then on Zheng was popularly known as Guao Xing Ye (Lord of the Imperial Surname) which the Dutch pronounced as Koxinga. When his father defected to the Qing in 1646, Koxinga began a campaign against the Manchus (Qing) in the southeast. In 1661 he turned his attention to Taiwan, which was ceded o him by the Dutch in 1662. Here he continued to uphold the Ming cause, and dated documents with the Yongli period title, He died suddenly in 1662, and was succeeded by his son, Zheng Jing. Documentary evidence of between 1651 and 1682 shows that these coins were made for Koxinga in Japan, probably at Nagasaki, and were extensively used in Taiwan.
This specimen is larger and heavier than most at 28 mm and 5.14 g, the plain reverse also has a countermark in the shape of a moon or fingernail impression. H21.81; FD 2129, S1315.
The Moneta Library has a very informative article on all the the Ming Rebels, Southern Ming and San Fan rebellions.
