    Predecessor to the Sichuan Rupee

    Tibet. Lu Kuan Rupee ND (1902-03) XF Details (Edge Repair) PCGS, Kangding mint, YZM-438, KM-YA1.1, L&M-655. Obv. Chinese legend. Rev. Tibetan legend. The legends are fully legible with some striking softness, mainly in the peripheral areas. This extremely rare issue is often considered the forerunner of the Sichuan Rupee, as it was struck in western Sichuan.

Examples of this type are extremely rare, and we know of only three others. The WS plate coin.
