There are four Chinese characters of "Qing Dynasty copper coin" in the center of the coin. A small character is embedded to represent the place name. The upper end is the Manchu character of "Qing Dynasty copper coin" and the two sides are the years. In the middle of the edge, there are two Chinese characters "Hubu", and in the lower end, there are ten characters "Dangqian". The central part of Qian Bei is a pan dragon, the upper part is made in Guangxu (or Xuantong) year, and the lower part is Tai Ching Ti Kuo copper coin.
The casting is relatively unified all over the country. The casting began in 1900 (the 26th year of Guangxu in Qing Dynasty) and ended in 1911 (the third year of Xuantong). Its circulation time was relatively short. Because of its elegant layout, excellent carving, and extremely rare amount of existence, the Qing Dynasty copper coins made in the year of Guangxu were regarded as one of the ten famous products in modern Chinese coin making.
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 the face of the growing flood of copper yuan, the Qing government was determined to thoroughly reform the currency system, fundamentally solve the problems exposed in the casting of copper yuan, abolish the old copper yuan, and rebuild the new copper yuan. On April 16, 1910 (the second year of Xuantong), the Qing government promulgated the "rules of currency system", which implemented the silver standard system, that is, taking silver dollar as the main currency and copper dollar as the auxiliary currency, a new type of auxiliary currency system was clearly established.
The new copper dollar is divided into four types: two, one, five and one. However, the value of the new set of copper coins deviated from the price comparison of making money, only casting patterns and not circulating. Therefore, in 1911 (the third year of Xuantong period), a new set of copper coins was launched, still called "Qing Dynasty copper coins", with 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1 coins. The exchange value of money making and silver yuan was cast above 5 articles to make up for the deficiency of the first set of new copper coins. At the same time, it is also stipulated that the new and old copper coins shall be used together temporarily, and the old copper coins shall be gradually recovered within three years, and the use shall be stopped at the expiration of the period. However, before the currency system reform plan was fully implemented (only ten Wen and one Wen copper yuan entered the circulation field), the revolution of 1911 broke out, and the Qing Dynasty was destroyed. The coins with strong collection value were loved by the vast number of collectors.
