Siamese Chinese Porcelain Gambling Tokens & Silver Cuff Links

Siamese/Chinese Porcelain Gambling Tokens (ca. 1820 - 1875) also called â ‚¬œPeeâ ‚¬ � were used in Siam at Chinese-run gambling establishmentâ ‚¬ „¢s also known as Chinese hongs. First they were used as gambling counters, but later, those tokens were widely accepted as small currency exchange within their districts. The use of the tokens was eventually forbidden by Siam's King Rama V in 1875. Still, the tokens remained in circulation for a long period of time and were still used well into the 20th century. Many different shapes (round, hexagon, octagon, oval, rhomb, triangle, square , rectangular, fruits shapes, star, other shapes etc.), materials (porcelain, clay, glass, tin, lead, silver, brass, bronze, copper etc.) and varieties were made; perhaps as many as 8,000 to 10,000 different designs were issued.
