China Yunnan Province 50 Cash and 50 Cents T'ang Chi-yao  1916 and 1917
China Yunnan Province 50 Cash and 50 Cents T'ang Chi-yao 1916 and 1917

T'ang Chi-yao (or Tang Jiyao) was military governor of Yunnan from 1913 to 1927. Coins with his likeness on the front and crossed flags on the back were minted in Yunnan Province during the early part of his reign:

50 CASH: minted in copper and brass
50 CENTS: minted in silver
5 DOLLARS: minted in gold
10 DOLLARS: minted in gold

This page applies only to the 50 cash and 50 cents denominations. The 50 cash in our main picture (upper left) is especially nice, with only a little wear, unmarred surfaces, and great eye appeal. It was sold by Ira and Larry Goldberg for $500 US dollars in a 2005 auction. Catalog value for a 'well preserved' coin is only $100, but when collectors see an exceptional coin, they don't think twice about paying more than catalog. The Goldberg coin is exceptional, and we thank them for releasing copyright to CoinQuest. We truly appreciate it.
