Map of Song Dynasty Iron and Tin Alloy Cash Mints

Here is a map showing the approximate locations of the iron cash mints during the Northern and Southern Song dynasties. This is a translation of page 436 in Liang Song Tie Qian, and the map has been cleaned up a little as well.

Some of the mints have the same names, and to differentiate them I have added another designation in italics. This is just another tool to understanding the complex but plentiful series of the cash coins of the Song dynasty.

Left mouse click on the image of the map, and it will open to full size. Then right click the mouse button and select "Save Picture As" to download it to your computer, then resize it, and print it.

For more detail on the mints, see the previous post on Song Dynasty mints.
