VF Western Xia coin, Renzong 1149 CE. I cherry picked this piece out of about a 100 as it was thicker than the rest (I guess this a good thing). The Tangut Xi Xia have a fascinating history~ loads of intrigue until their demise and ultimate obliteration by the Mongols in 1227, you can Google it like I did.

I have compared this with an original Wang Mang coin and there is no difference in material or size other than the symbols i.e., this was meant to be a lucky charm and not money...
