After the reform and opening up, with the rapid development of China's economy and the improvement of people's living standards, the antiques market is prosperous. As a kind of antiques, ancient coins have always been the focus of collectors. As a specific product of a period, it plays a vital role in the survival and development of human beings. The price of an ancient coin is very high, and the fine coins with good quality, well-cast and low output are more valuable, and their value often exceeds people's imagination.
In the second year of the Republic of China, that is, in 1913, Hu Jingyi, then the governor of the Sichuan Military Government, continued to cast the "Han" coin while adding two hundred yuan of large denomination copper coins weighing seven yuan. This is also the only currency in Sichuan that was used in English during the Republic of China. Since the National Government issued a unified currency model, the local coins were stopped from being cast and issued, so the amount of casting was small and the circulation time was short, which was quite precious.
After the founding of the Republic of China, the copper dollar continued to be widely used. In 1914, the copper yuan was officially renamed "copper coin". The biggest difference between the copper coins issued by the Republic of China and the Qing Dynasty was that the dragon pattern was replaced by Jiahe pattern composed of rice ears. Most of the copper coins cast in various provinces are the national flag pattern of the two sides of the fork, and there is the words "opening commemorative coin" or "Republic of China".
Today, I have been invited by a customer to collect a banner coin from the Sichuan Mint in the second year of the Republic of China.
