China. Northern Wei Dynasty. Emperor Hsiao-chuang. AD 528 to 529.

Date :  These were first cast in AD 529, but they exist in numbers far too large for them to have been only a one year type, so there probably continued to be cast for some time after Hsiao-chuang died, possibly to the end of the Northern Wei Dynasty in AD 550.

Denomination : Bronze Wu Shu (5 shu). 

Reference  : Schjoth-239. 

Size : 23.0 mm.   Weight : 2.13 grams.

Grade : VF

Obverse : "YUNG-AN WU SHU".  This mean "5 shu of eternal tranquillity".

Reverse : blank.

This is the most inexpensive type from this dynasty.
