Description: Chinese bronze coin, 98 mm, N. Song Dynasty (960-1127). Da Guan - the reign title (1107-1110 AD) of the Northern Song dynasty Emperor Hui Zhong (1101-1125). Obv: Da Guang tong bao, slender gold script. Bao (left) - precious treasury currency. Tong (right) - universal. Da Guan coins were issued also by both Jin Dynasty and Yuan Dynasty. Some were issued as charms with various marks on the reverse but others were simply unusual calligraphy. Reason for issue of unusual calligraphy is not known. But a good guess would be that they simply liked the writing and decided to make some coins! Coin is a symbol for money to hang somewhere. Condition: Amazing green natural patina. Diameter: 98 mm = 4 inches; Weight: 119 g = 4 oz.
