Pre-20th Century Chinese Coins
« on: September 29, 2010, 10:02:11 AM »
I have some old Chinese "cash" coins from the late 1800s, but they're not listed on Exact Change.  Any plans to include pre-1900 Chinese coins?

Wed very much like to include these coins but I think its important that while doing so, we provide Exact Change users with a tool (like the date converters) to decipher them.  Otherwise, were kind of adding a bunch of data to the database that most people would be hard pressed to utilize.  Ive been picturing a window that would show such a coin and allow the user to pick the characters that appear in each position.  To accomplish that feat, I think we need to work with someone who specializes in these coins in order to design a truly useful tool that an average layman could take advantage of.
