Dan . I am thinking about the lonely Chinaman who was persuaded to go to the USA to work on the railroad  . It was his only way to keep his family fed in China . He was kind of lonely and had to think about his family in China   every day . He found out that the people in the USA did not like him too much .  And now , at the end of his life he offered a coin he had safed for a long time  , to remember him of his native China  , to the Gods , to take care of his family in China that he was never to see again .   And Dan I think that is the coin you found .   Cornelius

Hello Danwebster , Cornelius and Everyone . To find an old Chinese coin in a Pennsylvania melted Glacial Lake does not make sense , unless the Chinese immigrated to the area 100 or 200 years ago . And the other idea "which is rediculous".... because the earliest chinese coins were around 1100 B.C. ? And the end of the Last Ice age was around 10,000 years ago ?  You stirred up some excellent questions here Today !!! Are you going back to the Lake again ? Wonder what else is buried there ? The Chinamen working on the Rail-Road is very possible Cornelius !!!!
Regards......HH.....Eugene

Yes Eugene I think it is just a story of a China man throwing his last connection with his home-land into the water . Praying that the gods would take care of his relatives in China , now so far away from him and unreachonable .   Eugene the age of the glacial lake has nothing to do with this tragic story . I see it as a human story of suffering in a strange country . Far away from your loved ones . At the end of your rope .  This coin is not worth any thing moneywise  but as a great thing in showing us family ties and love  I would be proud to wear it around my neck .  Cornelius

I hope to get back to the same location with some hopeful permission from the property owner, this spot has been on my mind for a long time now. Could an Indian made an exchange for the coin and had it made into a necklace and lost it while fishing in the water or while collecting some clay from the bottom..but the arrowheads are made of slate?

Cornelius;

My uncle found a cache, many years ago, with a detector, in what was once a Chinese gold miner's camp, in southern BC. He was told the location had been gone over, many times, and no one had found anything of value.

Where he found the coins, was in a depression (probably once was a cellar,) in the depression, he found a ceramic ginger jar, full of the coins.

In BC, there is no historical record of routing of Chinese miners, so, what may have happened was, an accident or illness, perhaps the very owner of the cache. Being very superstitious, they would have abandoned the camp, with what they could carry.

I am referring to statements made, by BC Historian, Bill Barlee, who has expounded on the superstitious abandonment theory, often.

Those are allways fun to find.Ive omly found three in the last so many years.One in the garden area of a home built in 1910 .A friend of mine found one next to some railroad tracks,probably lost by a Chinese Railroad worker back in cowboy days. It had turned a pretty green color.
