    The Xiji County Coin Museum, located in western Ningxia, was established in 1996. It is China's first county-level museum.

    With more than 30,000 types of ancient coins from different stages of Chinese history, Xiji county in the Ningxia Hui autonomous region is widely accepted in the academic world as the richest trove in the country.

    The Xiji County Coin Museum has more than 200,000 coins used from the Xia Dynasty (c. 21st century-16th century BC) until today and presents the full story of coins in China. One of its most precious relics is the qianlongbao, a type of coin produced by the Xinjiang Coin Bureau during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). It is listed as a national first-class cultural relic.
