Jin Qian Cao or Jinqiancao (, "Gold Coin Grass/Herb/Weed") is a term used in traditional Chinese herbal medicine. It can refer to several different herbal species, generally identified by their native regions. The most common of these in the Chinese trade, listed in the Pharmacopoeia of the People's Republic of China, is Lysimachia christinae, but in the West Desmodium and Glechoma may be more commonly encountered.[1]
