[Specification] Diameter: 38.95mm Weight: 26.77g
In the vast world, the charm of coins has lasted for a long time, and has become more and more charming through thousands of years. The silver dollar originated in the 15th century and was first cast in Europe. It is the main currency in the world. In the 16th century, silver dollars began to flow into China. After the Republic of China, the silver dollar was designated as the main currency.
On February 12, 1912, Emperor Xuantong abdicated by decree. The monarchy of more than two thousand years ended by Yuan Shikai. No blood, no fire, no war, no horse, the end of calm. In March 1912, Yuan Shikai was elected the interim president of the Republic of China because of his success in promoting republicanism. Shortly afterwards, he was elected the first president of the Republic of China. After the founding of the Republic of China, the central finance had almost no revenue or expenditure, and the financial crisis was very serious. In view of the complexity of coinage and banknotes, the Chinese and foreign currencies in circulation at that time were more than 100 kinds, with different specifications, confused circulation, cumbersome conversion, and people’s complaints, the Beiyang Government decided to issue the national currency by means of currency restructuring to solve the military expenditure problem.
The government of the Republic of China issued “Yuan Datou” silver coins with the head of Yuan Shikai as the pattern, which served as the main currency in circulation during the period of the Republic of China. Although Yuan Shikai died of illness in 1916, Yuan Datou not only did not withdraw from the historical stage, but was still being cast. Because Yuan Datou’s silver dollar played a great role in resisting foreign silver dollar. After its circulation, various imperialist issuances in China began to decrease, which played an inestimable role in stopping the outflow of silver coins and maintaining currency stability. Yuan Datou has a good reputation in the hearts of the people because of his good color and weight. Yuan Datou’s nine-year silver coins were coins made in the nine-year period of the Republic of China.
