Over 200 1,000-year-old coins discovered in Mongolia

More than 200 coins that were used 1,000 years ago in Mongolia were found while construction was underway in Araxan, said Zhang Zhenzhou of the Araxan Museum.

Most of them belonged to the Song Dynasty (960 – 1127) and some to the Tang Dynasty (618 – 907). Zhang added that the place where they were found belonged to the Western Xia Kingdom, which means that the territory was probably a business center between the Northern Song and Western Xia, an opinion that is shared by the curator of the Weiwu Museum, Li Daxiang.

It is likely that people tried to hide their money during the war. Archaeologists are classifying and studying the coins in order to determine in what year they were buried and hope to shed some light on bilateral trade in ancient times.Zhang said.

Historical records show that silk, porcelain, iron, and various textiles were traded to sites like the Indus River and present-day Iraq.
