Ancient Chinese coins: A brief history of Song Dynasty coins

Eigtheen Emperors ruled during the Song Dynasty, which was divided into 2 periods; the Northern Song Dynasty (A.D. 960 - 1127) and the Southern Song Dynasty (A.D. 1127 - 1279). The Song coins casted during this period were subtle and complex with numerous varieties and vast number of calligraphic styles.
The founder of the Song dynasty was Zhao Kuang Yin, who rose from the rank of general to emperor. The first offical Song Coin during his reign was the Song Yuan Tong Bao. Later, the loss of the Northern territories resulted in the establishment of the Southern Song Dyasty. The inscriptions of the Southern Song coins inherited much of the style of the North with one key difference; Southern Song coins bore the year of the mintage.
