Is this Chinese coin genuine?

Recommended Posts

Evening All

I stumbled across this Chinese coin today whilst metal detecting in Nottingham of all places.

I didn't really know anything about ancient Chinese coins, but having carried out a bit of research on the internet, I've come to the conclusion it is a Kangxi (1662-1722) (Boo Fu).

It is 24mm in diameter.

Please could anyone with any knowledge of Chinese coins please take a look and let me know your thoughts on whether it is genuine and how it might have ended up in a field in Nottingham?

Many Thanks
