Ningxia, located in northwest China, has historically been an important intersection of the ancient Silk Road. In recent years, Xiji County, Guyuan City has repeatedly unearthed precious Chinese and foreign coins from the Shang and Zhou dynasties. These cultural relics silently bear witness to the trade interaction and prosperity between the East and the West thousands of years ago.
