Denomination : Round coin with round hole, YUAN type.

Date : ca. 350 to 300 BC.

Reference : Schjoth 73.

Size : 40.5 x 42.7 mm.  Weight : 10.59 gram.

Grade : VF with mottled green-brown patina.  What appear to be broken spots around the edges are where the casting sprews were broken off when the coin was originally made, and are normal for these (the lack of at least one such spot would indicate a fake on this issue).

Obverse : "YUAN".

Reverse : blank.

This is the most inexpensive type of the early round coins with round holes.
