There were many types of copper coins in the Qing Dynasty, especially the ten. A number of Qing emperors issued copper coins as circulation currency. The use of copper coins has important practical and historical significance, making the transaction more and more convenient. Today, the Qing Dynasty copper coins also have a certain collection value, many collectors can’t let go of the Qing Dynasty copper coins, and collecting a variety of copper coins has become their goal.
In recent years, “Qing Dynasty copper coins” once became the favorite of the collection circle, and the media was so hot that it was easily worth millions of dollars. It is understood that the collection value of “Qing Dynasty copper coins” in Xiangmian is very high, but the amount of “Qing Dynasty copper coins” is extremely rare.
In 1904, in the thirtieth year of Guangxu’s reign, the five characters of “made by Sichuan official bureau” were changed into four characters of “made by Sichuan Province”. In July 1905, the Qing government ordered all the provinces to change the “Guangxu Yuanbao” copper coins into “Da Qing copper coins”, and to add Chinese abbreviations in yin or yang to the center of the coins. In Sichuan Province, there were Dang five, Dang ten and Dang twenty copper coins with the center of “Chuan”. In September of the same year, the household Department of the Qing government was renamed as “Du branch”, but Ji Ming of “Da Qing copper coins” coined by the copper yuan bureaus of all provinces still used the word “Hu Branch”, while Ji Ming of “Da branch” coined by Sichuan Province was changed to “Du branch”. As a result, Sichuan copper yuan has become one of the characteristics of the national copper yuan.
This coin was made in Xuantong, with a diameter of 28.5mm and a weight of 7.3g. In the middle of the coin, there are four Chinese characters of “big Qing copper coin”, embedded with a small character “Chuan”, which is the abbreviation of Sichuan Province. At the top is the Manchu inscription of “Qing Dynasty copper coins”, with the year “Jiyou” on both sides, i.e. 1909, the first year of Xuantong, which is divided into “Du branch”, i.e. Hubu. The lower end is “ten Wen when making money”. The central part of the coin is a pan dragon, the upper part of the bead circle is “made in Xuantong”, and the lower part is “Tai Ching Ti kuocoppercoin” (copper coins of the Qing Dynasty). This coin was made in Sichuan Province during the Xuantong period of the Qing Dynasty. It is well made and has excellent appearance and collection value.
The difference between this coin and the common one is that there is a “Du branch” on the obverse rather than a “Hubu” on the obverse. In fact, these two names represent the institutions in charge of financial affairs. Only in the 32nd year of Guangxu in the Qing Dynasty, the household department was renamed Du branch due to the reorganization. Compared with the name of “Hubu”, the existence time of “Du branch” is very short, and the reign time of Xuantong emperor is only three years. It can be imagined that the rarity of the Qing Dynasty copper coins made in Xuantong year, the collection value is more incalculable than other versions of Qing Dynasty copper coins.
This coin was minted in 1909 (the first year of Xuantong in Qing Dynasty) and ended in 1911 (the third year of Xuantong in Qing Dynasty). Because of its excellent engraving and stamping displacement of the obverse and the reverse, the number of surviving coins is extremely rare. The branch system of Guangxu year of Qing Dynasty copper coin was regarded as one of the ten famous coins in modern China. This coin, with its deep pattern, excellent production, bright color and natural coating, is the best choice for collectors to invest and collect.
This collection is the core recommendation of this Singapore auction. Welcome all Tibetan friends to come to Singapore for consultation and bidding. This is a rare opportunity!
