Coins

Description

These coins were all made in China during the Warring States period (475-221 BC), before the country had unified under one ruler. At that time the states were fighting for land, influence, resources, and power, so territories changed hands many times. Some of these states shared common histories, while others had different cultural traditions, many even had their own coinage.
