Ancient Chinese coins: A brief history of Sui coins

The Sui Wu Zhu coin had the distinction of bringing to the close the longest circulating coin in ancient China's numismatic history, the Han coin, Wu Zhu. Some Sui coins were minted in a mixture of other alloys such as tin or lead. These coins had lighter and brassier colors and are also lighter in weight compared to other bronze coins of similar size.
