China Empire Hu Poo 5, 10, and 20 Cash 1903

These copper coins of the Board of Revenue (Hu Poo) were issued in 50, 10, and 20 cash denominations. Typical catalog values run like this:

5 CASH
worn: $7 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $20
well preserved: $50
fully uncirculated: $120

10 CASH
worn: $1 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $4
well preserved: $15
fully uncirculated: $40

20 CASH

These are approximate values. Chinese coins are *hot* in today's numismatics (coin collecting), so values can be substantially different than those above (higher or lower). If you have a nice-looking coin, seek out a knowledgeable collector or coin dealer for an in-person appraisal.
