The '''1 [[fen]] [[coin]]''' is a [[circulation]] coin that was issued in [[1940]], the 29th year of the {{wp|en|Minguo calendar}}, by the [[Reformed Government of the Republic of China]], a [[China|Chinese]] {{wp|en|provisional government}} {{wp|en|Puppet state|protected}} by the [[Empire of Japan]] during the {{wp|en|Second Sino-Japanese War}}. Such a piece had a value equivalent to 0.01 [[Chinese yuan|yuan]] prior to its eventual [[demonetization]] in [[1941]]. It was distributed by the [[Hua Hsing Commerce Bank]], a financial agency established by the imperial Japanese government. In addition to the circulation pieces, at least three types of [[pattern coin|patterns]] were also produced.

The '''1 [[fen]] [[coin]]''' is a [[circulation]] coin that was issued in [[1940]], the 29th year of the [[wikipedia:Minguo calendar|Minguo calendar]], by the [[Reformed Government of the Republic of China]], a [[China|Chinese]] [[wikipedia:Provisional government|provisional government]] [[wikipedia:Puppet state|protected]] by the [[Empire of Japan]] during the [[wikipedia:Second Sino-Japanese War|Second Sino-Japanese War]]. Such a piece had a value equivalent to 0.01 [[Chinese yuan|yuan]] prior to its eventual [[demonetization]] in [[1941]]. It was distributed by the [[Hua Hsing Commerce Bank]], a financial agency established by the imperial Japanese government. In addition to the circulation pieces, at least three types of [[pattern coin|patterns]] were also produced.
   
The circulation coin is composed of [[bronze]], and like most coins, is round in [[shape]]. Featured in the center of the [[obverse]] is the {{wp|en|Chinese language|Chinese}} character "[[wikt:蕐|蕐]]" ({{wp|en|Pinyin}}: ''Huá''), signifying issuance by the Hua Hsing Commerce Bank. Below it is a pair of {{wp|en|Wing|wings}}. Both of the aforementioned objects are enclosed within a circular border. Inscribed from right to left at the very top of the coin is the state title "國民華中" (Pinyin: ''Zhōnghuá Mínguó''; {{wp|en|English language|English}}: "Republic of China"), and written in the same direction at the bottom of the piece is the date "年九十二" (Pinyin: ''Èrshíjiǔ nián''), essentially indicating the coin was minted in the 29th year of the Minguo calendar, which began in 1912 with the creation of the [[Republic of China (1912-1949)|Republic of China]] under {{wp|en|President of the Republic of China|President}} {{wp|en|Sun Yat-sen}} (1866–1925). Both legends are separated from each other by two {{wp|en|Five-pointed star|five-pointed stars}}, one at the left side of the obverse and the other at the right. Depicted in the middle of the [[reverse]] is a bundle of {{wp|en|rice}} tied together by a ribbon at the stems. This illustration divides the two characters in the value "分壹" (Pinyin: ''Yī fēn''), which, like the text on the obverse, is written from right to left.
