Comments

David Hartill also lists a few foreign cast coins made like Chinese coins (Amman, Japan and Korea). The Hartill minting year range is slightly different, however he says: "Hundreds of obverse and reverse variations of this coin are known. Specialist works will give their attributions to mints."
