FOURTH SERIES (AD 1644-1661): Mint name on the reverse, in Manchurian on the left and in Chinese on the right. The coins of the board of Revenue and board of Works mints, with "BOO" on the left and the mint name in Manchurian on the right, should also be included in this series, rather than as an issue of AD 1644 as suggested by Schjoth. This allows for a smooth transition with the coinage of K'ang-hsi and, not to put them here would require both of the principal mints to have been shut down during the last years of this reign.
