Spanish numerals


I have a question about numerals in Spanish. I'm supposed to rewrite various sentences with numerals in them, but I have a slight problem. How do you say 200th, 300th, 400th etc in Spanish? My morphology textbook tells me that 'ducentésimo, tricentésimo...' is not used anymore, so I was wondering if there is any other way? And if there is, how would it work with numbers like 450th, 818th etc?

Also, is there any way to express the multiples? Like 6x, 8x etc? Again, my morphology textbook says that only 'doble, triple, cuadruple' is used, so how would I say eg. 'seven times'?

Thank you!

Translation of Chinese needed....

I'm hoping someone can help me out with some Chinese.
My grandparents were recently clearing out and came across a ring brought back from China (in, I suppose, the early twentieth century?) by my great-grandfather. The inside of the lid of the ring-box features several Chinese characters, and we, being very curious sorts, would love to know what they say.

Sorry the pictures aren't very good quality; the box is quite small. Hope someone can figure it out!
