GAOCHANG KINGDOM: Anonymous, 460-640, AE cash, H-14.136, gao chang ji li (Gaochang auspicious profit), Fine, RRR. Gaochang is the site of an ancient oasis city built on the northern rim of the inhospitable Taklamakan Desert in Xinjiang, China. During the Yuan and Ming dynasties, Gaochang was referred to as "Halahezhuo" (Qara-khoja) and Huozhou. The territory of the ancient state covered what is now Turpan County in Xinjiang Province. The Gaochang jili cash was coined in the reigns of the rulers of the Qu Family lineage (499-640). Made in excellent workmanship, jili cash were inscribed with Han characters in the official script style of the Han dynasty. The cash was circular, with a square hole in the middle, thick and weighty. François Thierry believes this type should be attributed to King Qu Wentai (620-640).
