Introduction:

A total of 52,640 bronze coins, weighing 207 kilograms, were unearthed from the Tomb of King Chu in Beidongshan. If the stolen, lost, broken and decayed coins are counted, the total amount of bronze coins buried should be more than 100,000. The large number of coins buried in the tomb of King Chu fully illustrates the wealth of Chu in the early Western Han Dynasty, and was of great value in studying the currency system and society and economy of the Warring States and Qin and Han Dynasties.
