Yung Zheng T'ung Pao

[ Yung Cheng T'ung Pao or Yong Zheng Tong Bao ]


( 1723 ~ 1736 A.D. )

Part D

During the reign of Yung Zheng, there was probably no need for a more issue of coins for the market demand in the country, because of the sufficien coins minted in the reign of K'anghsi, and also due to the shortage of copper supply at that time. The issue of Yung Zheng T'ung Pao was limited, not so many of them are extant today.
