Chinese coins from the scholar's study

Abstract:
Coin collecting developed in China during the Song dynasty (ad 960–1279). This passion originated in the imperial court's enthusiasm for the past and antiquities. Coins are scholarly antiques par excellence: their appreciation requires a certain cultural background, because they are above all historical objects. Coins are also appreciated and collected as aesthetic objects.
