This is an unusual type as a cast coin of Fukien (Fujian) featuring a reverse bearing flags of the Chinese Republic, formed in 1912. These issues tend to be crude and when in AU condition they are quite rough, center hole is round. This 2 Cash piece, of which there are 5 and 6 stripe varieties, is the scarcer 6 stripe type. Hartill #24.6 (rarity 7); KM #375.1
OB: Fu Chien tong bao; RX: Er Wen (2 Cash).


This coin was first cast by The Official Bureau of Fukien Province during the period of Nov., 1911 to Feb., 1912. This brass circular cash is not the same as the traditional Chinese copper cash in shape. It has a round hole instead of the square hole in the centre. Four Chinese characters "Fu Kien T'ung Pao" [Foo Kien Province Current Coin] were inscribed on the obverse. On the reverse, there are two Chinese characters denotes the denomination "two cash" above and below the hole. Two flags, a five-colour flag and a military flag [The old flags used by The Republic of China] on each side of the hole.
