Help identifying Taiwan Coin

Here are images of the what I believe is a Taiwan silver coin but the reverse has me stumped. Any help identifying is appreciated. It is just slightly larger than a US dime.

    Republic of China, 5 cents, dated between 1936-1941. Pretty common. Nickel composition per SCWC.

    There are similar but larger 10 and 20 cent coins too.

    You are probably just not going back far enough, it is before the Nationalists lost to the Communists.

    Clearly listed in Krause/SCWC. Reverse depicts Chinese spade money, of course.

    The obverse says, from right to left across the top: Republic of China Year 25, which is 1936. As such, it is not a “Taiwan” coin because the victory of the communists hadn’t yet happened.

    How does one get a hater to stop hating?
