|This site contains information about the coins and money of Xinjiang, a part of the "Silk Road" also known as Sinkiang,
Kashgaria, Altishahr, East Turkestan, Eastern Turkestan, and the Western Regions. Because of the multitude of
alternate names and spellings used for this material, I have appended this summary of the site's contents to make the
information easier to find using search engines. The catalogues contain coins of the Qarakhanids (Qarakhans,
Karakhanids, Black Khans), Chaghatay (Chaghatai) Khans, Great Mongols, Moghul or Eastern Chaghatayid Khans of
Yarkand (Sa'idiyya, Yarkand Khanate), the Dzungar (Zhungar, Zungar, Jungar) Mongols, and coins (cash) of the Qing
(Ch'ing) (Chinese, Manchu) emperors Qianlong (Qian Long, Ch'ien Lung), Jiaqing (Jia Qing), Daoguang (Dao Guang),
Xianfeng (Xian Feng), and Guangxu (Guang Xu), and the rebels Rashidin and Yakub Beg (Yakub Bey, Bedaulet). The
coins were minted at Kashgar (Kashghar, Shu Le), Yarkand ( Sha Che) Aqsu (Aksu), Kucha (Kuche), Urumqi
(Urumchi, Dihua, Di Hua), Yili (gulja, ghulja, Bao Yi, Ili), and Ush (Ush turpan, Ush turfan).
