Prince Gui (or Yong Li as were his reign title) issued two types of Yong Li coins, but this coin was not issued by Prince Gui. It was issued by a vassal of the Ming called Zheng Chenggong. The coins were minted in Nagasaki, and circulated in Taiwan between 1661-1683. The reason that he used Yong Li's reign title was that he shared the Southern Ming regime's resistance against foreign aggression.
