F.Shjoth wrote that:
  • "The 7th moon of the 4th year of Ch'ien-yen (a.d.1130) in the Emperor Kao Tsung's time (Sung), the people of Chin setup Liu Yu as an Emperor with the dynastic name Ch'i. In the 9th moon he ascended the throne and during 11th moon he adopted the year title Fou Ch'ang (1130). Chin used in the beginning the currencies of Liao and Sung, and at the end of Tien Chi (1137) the Fou Chang coins were still in use."
    Liu Yu was a Chin-shih graduate from Fu-ch'eng in Chihli, and later a prefect in Chinan in Shantung. He rebelled and took service with the Chins, and subsequently these made him Emperor. In a.d. 1137 he was deposed. This coin is extremely rare.
In the F.Schjoth book is placed only one item of Fou Ch'ang T'ung Pao with the seal style inscription (S1076).

There are references on such coins in the Chinese book Illustrative plates of Chinese ancient coins at the page 310, item N6, rarity marked as 'star'.
