At present, there is a well-known silver coin among the modern coins in China. It is listed as the ten treasures of modern Chinese mechanism coins, and it has also been searched and excavated by people for thousands of years. This is the double dragon longevity coin made in Guangdong Province. It attracts many experts' recognition with its unique products. From the aspect of the shape of the coin to the detail description, this double dragon longevity coin made in Guangdong Province shows its unique characteristics and becomes the leader of the silver coins in the Qing Dynasty.
This coin is of the format of Kuping weighing seven coins and two cents. Since the purpose of this coin was to offer the Qing Dynasty a wish for the Empress Dowager Cixi's longevity, the coin was not made in large amount. Most of it was given to the Qing Dynasty or to the dignitaries and dignitaries at that time, which was rarely circulated among the people. The silver coin has four characters of "made in Guangdong Province" on the outside of the bead circle on the front, five characters of regular script "Kuping weighs seven coins and two cents" on the bottom, a bat pattern on the left and right sides, and four characters of "Guangxu Yuanbao" in the bead circle. On the back of the silver coin, there is a pattern of double dragons playing with beads outside the bead circle and a circle of "longevity" inside the bead circle. The silver coin design is very distinctive, and a pair of bat patterns on both sides of the front symbolize auspiciousness. Because bat is homophonic with Fu, the bat pattern on the coin is intended to take bat and Fu as homophonic characters, corresponding to longevity on the back, implying both happiness and longevity. Among the two types of Shouzi double dragon silver coins, Guangdong Province's yuanbaoshouzi double dragon silver coins with average weight of seven coins and two cents are not easy to circulate and use, so the coinage is extremely rare
In 1898 (the 24th year of Guangxu's reign), Wei Guangtao, governor of Shaanxi Province, asked him to set up a money making Bureau in Xi'an to make silver coins of Shaanxi Province by himself, and entrusted Birmingham Heaton mint to make steel mould on behalf of him, and ordered the machinery and equipment of the factory. Before the steel mould was handed over to China, the factory tried to cast four kinds of silver sample coins, i.e. Kuping 7-2, 3-6, 1-4-4, 7-6. This set of sample coins is exquisite and precious. It was in the same year that the Qing government ordered the abolition of mints in various provinces, so the coins were dead before they were minted. This silver coin is excellent in appearance and has a very high collection and research value.
Although the silver yuan of Qing Dynasty in China was not manufactured for a long time, there were many precious coins circulating. These rare collections appeared frequently in the auction market in recent years.
Guangxu Yuanbao is a public collection with a certain number of collectors. In the early stage, powerful buyers from all regions in China intervened in the Guangxu Yuanbao sector, controlling the market supply to a certain extent, leading to a rapid rise in its price.
At the same time, the value of Guangxu Yuanbao is also rising. From the acceptance of collectors and citizens, it is expected that the price of Guangxu Yuanbao will continue to rise in the later period. Guangxu Yuanbao records a period of history in China, which has important cultural significance and collection value.
