Two large Chinese characters Zhu Wu ("5 zhu"), with a characteristic rounded "Zhu" //  "Shi" (=10) left of the hole. 25mm, 2.75 grams. Gratzer/Fishman #B4.81v ("Shi" in a different position).

Very rare example with the positions of Wu and Zhu reversed (so the inscription reads "Zhu Wu"). Particularly interesting with the additional character on the reverse.

The Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 CE) was the second imperial dynasty of China, preceded by the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BCE) and succeeded by the Three Kingdoms (220-265 CE). It was founded by the peasant rebel leader Liu Bang, known posthumously as Emperor Gaozu of Han. It was briefly interrupted by the Xin Dynasty (23 CE) of the former regent Wang Mang. This interregnum separates the Han into two periods: the Western Han (206 BC-9 CE) and Eastern Han (25-220 CE). Spanning over four centuries, the period of the Han Dynasty is considered a golden age in Chinese history. To this day, China's majority ethnic group refers to itself as the "Han people".
