The Tael is a unit of measurement that originated in East Asia and Southeast Asia. It has long been used in Chinese currency and dates to the era of Imperial China. In particular, the Qing Dynasty that arose in 1644 and reigned through 1912 used the tael in gold and silver currency. Though it has been replaced by the Yuan in currency, the Chinese tael has been standardized as of 1959 to 50 Grams.
