After the collapse of the Qing Dynasty, Yuan Shikai became President in April 1912. In view of the complexity of coinage and banknotes, the current Chinese and foreign currencies were more than 100 kinds, with different specifications, confused circulation, cumbersome conversion, and people's complaints. At the same time, the Beiyang government decided to use currency restructuring to solve the military expenditure problem, so it decided to coin the national currency. In order to improve his dominant position, Yuan Shikai cast his head on the surface of the coin. "Yuan Datou" is the colloquial term for Yuan Shikai's coin series. Strictly speaking, it is called "Yuan Shikai's image carries Jiahe silver coin".
[Name of Collection]: One Yuan in Yuan Datou in the Three Years of the Republic of China
The edition of Yuan Datou Yinyuan in the three years of the Republic of China is different from that in other years。 The front design of Yuan Datou Yinyuan in the three years of the Republic of China is the side image of Yuan Shikai。 The back design is two intersecting ears of rice, and the central design is "one circle"。 The above text is: in the three years of the Republic of China, there is no word "made" after the word "year"。 In other years, the word "made" was added after the word "year" of Yuan Datou Yinyuan。
In recent years, the money market has become hot, especially in the period of Min and Qing Dynasty, when the ancient coins were collected by Tibetans. Yuan Datou was called the treasure of silver yuan in the money collection circle. It is the most widely spread and influential silver dollar variety among the nearly 1,000 kinds of modern silver coins in China, and it is also an important role in the reform of modern Chinese currency system. Because it is a real currency, between people's recognition of precious metals, and a strong sense of historical and cultural identity, so the collection is not in the minority. "Yuan Datou" has a strong cash flow ability, which is also one of the factors favoring Tibetans, and "Qian" scenery is good.
