Emperor LI TSUNG, AD 1225-1264

Not that Schjoth (top of page 40) notes that Li tsung's government was over-burdened with the difficulties of war. This must be considered when interpreting this next series of coins. It might help explain the unusual series S-983-990. Is the stopping iron issues (from S-991 on) related to this war?

Reign title: PAO-CH'ING, AD 1225-1227

To use the Pao-ch'ing reign title on a coin would have required the character for "Pao" to occur twice on the same coin. It had long been established that characters were generally not repeated on the obverse of Chinese coins, so in a tradition stating much earlier, an inscription commemorating the Sung Dynasty was chosen. In this case it was "TA-SUNG YUAN-PAO" which means roughly "coinage of the great Sung dynasty".

Schjoth seems to think that coins with the "Pao-ch'ing" inscriptions were cast in the first few months of this title, but he did not have a specimen and we have never seen one. Since is would have gone against long standing tradition to have cast such coins, we would want to examine any such specimens for authenticity before including them in this listing.
