The first one is Yuan Shikai, an army leader around the 1900s. He coronated himself the emperor. This one is widely seen. Never seen others.

The first one looks like Yuan Shikai, although they're all hard to see clearly. They all look like late-Qing, early Republic of China coins, although I've never seen one with the bagua design on it. Guess I should go to Panjiayuan one weekend, haven't been there in ages....
