The Szechuan Rupee

this page is under construction!!!!!


The Szechuan Rupee

The Indian Rupee was very common and respected in Tibet and in the trade between Tibet and Szechuan province as well as in the Sino-Indian-Burmese-Tibetan border trade. To avert the influence of British India in these regions the Chinese governement minted from 1902-1942 the socalled Szechuan Rupee, which in design, size, and weight was similar to the Indian Rupee. The Chinese/ Szechuanese Rupee however soon varied in it's silver content. It was minted probably close to 14.000.000 times.
