BM Chinese coins (Poole) #345; Hartill 9.1.These early "value 50" issues are commonly called "cake coins" because they are much larger and scarcer than the later "biscuit coins".This coin is unconditionally guaranteed to be authentic.Emperor Ruzi of Han (AD 5 AD 25), commonly known as "Ying the Kid" (rúzi ying) and with the personal name of Liu Ying, was last emperor of the Chinese Western Han Dynasty from AD 6 to AD 9. After Emperor Ping died without heirs, Wang Mang chose the youngest of the available successors in order to maintain his power in the government. He was soon deposed by Wang Mang who declared the Xin Dynasty in place of the Han. During Xin Dynasty, he was under effective house arrest -- so much so that he did not even know common animals once he was grown. Before and after Xin Dynasty was overthrown in 23, there were many ambitious people claiming to be restoring Han. In 25, a rebellion against the temporary Emperor Gengshi rose involving the former Emperor Ruzi, and when the rebellion was defeated, he was killed. He is often viewed as a tragic innocent child who was the victim of circumstances.
