The coin in our picture comes from Stack's Bowers and Ponterio and sold in a 2012 auction for $400 US dollars. This gives you a general idea of value of these intriguing coins from the Chinese Province of Szechuan.

The unique pattern with 18 circles is common to several denominations and these are all called out on this page. A close-up of the Stack's coin appears at the bottom of this page so you can see the intricacies of the pattern.

Some denominations are made of silver, some are made of copper. All these values are very approximate. If you have a nice-looking specimen, take it to a knowledgeable collector or a professional coin dealer for an in-person appraisal.
