Most of the copper coins circulating among the people in China's coastal provinces were foreign silver dollars, such as Mexico Eagle ocean, Japan Dragon Silver, etc. In the first month of the 13th year of Guangxu, Zhang Zhidong, who was then governor of Guangdong and Guangdong, was seen here. He played the imperial court and proposed to take the lead in setting up a money Bureau in Guangdong, and then promote the whole country to use machines to make money and copper coins, so as to resist the monopoly of foreign copper coins on China's domestic circulation. In the 15th year of Guangxu, with the approval of the Qing government, the Guangdong money Bureau was officially established, and all the machinery and equipment required for coinage had to be imported from abroad.
