    Comments

    The mace is a measurement unit approximately equal to 3.74 grams for precious metals. The candareen is subdivision of this unit valued at 1/10. The weight of the weight is then 7 mace and 2 candareens being 7.2 mace or about 26,9 grams.

    Yuwan Boo (ᠶᡠᠸᠠᠨ ᠪᠣᠣ) does not stand here for the mint name of Beijing as the coin was struck in the Jiangnan province, further to the south. It here stands for the Manchu spelling of Yuanbao (元寶), which means "precious currency".

    The first two years the portrait used a different dragon, slight difference on the obverse too.
