Emperor Puyi (1909-12)
The last Emperor


Xuan Tong Tong bao 1 cash
No Hartill number.
Diam: 23.7mm, 2.9g
Rev: Boo Chuwan (Chengdu, Sichuan)


No Hartill number.


I had originally identified the mint mark as Boo Yuwan (Board of Works), but was unsure as Hartill listed no coins from this mint. I posted the coin on Coin Talk.


Comment from a fellow CoinTalk member:
I believe that the mint mark on your coin is Boo Chuwan rather than Boo Yuwan. This would be the Chengdu mint in Sichuan. See Hartill 22.1393 - 22.1395 for the Guang Xu issues from that mint. Look also at the other issues for Yong Zheng, Qian Long, and others from the same mint. Yours is probably a privately cast coin of the period since Hartill states in his book "Qing Cash" that the mint ceased casting around 1901. Just my opinion. It's interesting that your coin appears to have the protruding head, one dot tong as on some of the coins of earlier Qing emperors.
