That's a neat find. Have you found out anything about it? Modern or old? Valuable or very common? Was it found in the U.S. ?

Thanks for sharing!

Looks like a garden variety Feng-Shui coin to me. It's hard to tell unless you hold it in your hand. Real Chinese coins have a heft to them and don't normally have that edge band.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

There was a railroad not far from this lake, it was at one time called the Gravity Railroad. This location where i found this coin i also found some artifacts while water detecting, this area was a popular coal mine area in the old days. I hope to get back to that spot and detect, the property was sold and a large home was built there on the lake.This pic. is some of those items in the exact location...
