In this issue we welcome a guest article about Chinese Sychee by Thomas Uhlmann, a researcher from Germany. Steve Feller, former longtime editor of the International Banknote Society Journal, has submitted another interesting article about his physics and numismatics trips to China.

Our Senior Editor, Bruce Smith, has an article on Taiping Silver Cash Coins which should be very interesting for our readers on this important series.
