Michael Zachary submitted this announcement of his new book on the Twenty Cash coins of China. Thanks, and congratulations.
I'd like to announce the publishing of my new guidebook,
The Twenty Cash Commentary: The General Issue Twenty Cash, Two Fen, Two Xian, and Two Cent Coins of the Republic of China (1912-41), which is now available on Amazon. The title is a mouthful, but it fully explains the scope of the book, which is 33 pages long. I attach a copy of the book's cover.
As reflected by its title, the guide covers all of the general issue twenty cash, two fen, two xian, and two cent coins of the Republic of China issued from 1912 to 1941, including the dragon
restrikes issued under Republic-era governments. It covers 49 varieties, as compared to the 16 varieties in the Standard Catalog of World Coins. For example, it covers the four varieties of Y-308, the three varieties of Y-308a, the three varieties of Y-312, and the several varieties of each of the Hu-Poo dragon restrikes, Y-5, Y-5.1, and Y-5.2 (and explains the easy way to distinguish Y-5.1 from Y-5.2).
In addition to describing the varieties of the coins that currently can be found in the Standard Catalog, it includes varieties that are not in the Standard Catalog – for example, the varieties with the obverse of Y-308 and the reverse of Y-308a (and vice versa), which previously only could be found in Chinese-language guides. It also covers pattern, fantasy, and private issue twenty cash and two fen coins issued during those years. The detailed text and photographs will allow confident identification of the coins covered by the guide and collectors will hopefully appreciate the background information found throughout the book (the
Commentary mentioned in the title).
This guide is a follow-up to my guide to the general issue ten cash coins, entitled
The Ten Cash Commentary: The General Issue Ten Cash Coins of the Republic of China, which is also available on Amazon.
