Lot of Chinese porcelain tokens, consisting of 11 objects.
They are also called pee coins, referred to as pig money. They were produced at De Hua in the late 19th century
Most of them where used as gambling chips in Chinese gambling dens in Bangkok but we're also used as currency in the local neighborhood.
On the front side most often the name of the gambling house is written, for example golden turtle or something similar. It is also common to write a lucky word like fortune and so on on the front. One common front is a copy of a Chinese cash coin but it would still be the value written on the back that counts.
Size is between 16 and 18 mm.
They are in good condition, some with moderate wear but no faults.
