A Chinese classical coin also known as ’’Cash’’ They were a type of coin. It was used in China and some area’s in East Asia from the 4th century till the 20th century. They were cast for the first time during the warring states period. They were also used in Imperial China, the Mongol rule and the Manchu rule. The final coins were cast during the early year of the foundation of the Chinese Republic. This is a custom version of the coin. If you love the Chinese coins then this is the right design for you.

This unique design features the flag China on a beautiful butterfly. The flag contours to the details in the wings and curves around the body of the butterfly giving it a realistic look. The edges of the wings are painted black which frames the Chinese flag inside of the pattern. This wonderful flying creature is a perfect combination of nature and patriotism.

Some crossed Chinese broadsword with the Chinese hanzi symbols for ‘’big sword’’ or ’’Dadao’’. It is based on a older design of mine. The dadao or dao is one of the four traditional weapons of China. If you’re fan of the dadao or can wield one as it’s used by various martial arts forms then this is the right design for you. I also wanted to give it a urban like look.
