General note

The left coin is upside down in the photo.
There are two Manchurian letters on the left coin, which suggests that the coin was minted in the period of Qing Dynasty. One of the letters means “treasure”; the other one means “Guangdong,” indicating that the coin was from Guangdong mint.
It’s difficult to tell from the photo whether the coin was a real one minted in Qing Dynasty or a fake one for decorative use only.
