[collection name]: Yuan Datou in the third year of the Republic of China
Yuan Datou was one of the main circulating currencies in the Republic of China. Yuan Datou is a colloquial term for Yuan Shikai's series of coins, which is strictly called "Yuan Shikai carries Jiahe silver coins on his back". "Yuan Datou" is known as the treasure of silver dollar in the field of currency collection. It is the most popular and influential silver dollar variety among nearly one thousand modern silver coins in China, and it is also an important role in the currency system reform of modern China.
At the beginning of the Republic of China, the currency system was very chaotic. Silver, copper, paper and banknotes were used together in the circulation market. In the third year of the Republic of China (1914), the Northern Warlord government officially minted the silver coin with the head of Yuan Shikai. Because the head of Yuan Shikai was on the side of the coin, it was commonly known as "yuan Dazou".
This coin, with a triangular circle on the back, is rare in the world.There are four denominations of yuan Datou coins: one yuan, middle yuan (five jiao), two jiao and one jiao, of which one yuan is the most common. Yuan Datou was first minted in the three years of the Republic of China, and the coin was designated as the currency of the Republic of China. Therefore, it has a very important position in the history of China's currency. The front of the three-year edition of the Republic of China is the profile of Yuan Shikai, listed above as "three years of the Republic of China". There is no word "Zao" after the word "Nian". In other versions, there is a word "Zao" after the word "Nian". There is a "dot" in the three-year version of "Min", while there is no "dot" in other versions. In the nine-year edition, there are mainly two types: Yuan Xiang's unsealed collar edition and big ear edition. The former is a common edition, with more casting volume, while the latter is less. Big ear plate means that Yuan Xiang's ears are bigger than other plates, and his collar is fully sealed. The layout of coins is elegant and rare. It is a kind of excellent collection and has great popularity. It has immeasurable academic and historical value.
The obverse of the coin is the profile of Yuan Shikai, with six characters of "three years of the Republic of China" listed above. In the coin, Yuan Shikai's eyes are bright, and his eyes are bright on the front and the top. The pattern on the back is Jiahe pattern composed of two rice ears, with the word "one circle" in the center. This coin is finely forged, on which the ruler has the vision of national security and good luck. After years of deposition, the coins are still in good condition with clear lines and teeth. In the three years of the Republic of China, yuan Datou was influenced by history and had a profound historical significance.
"Yuan Datou" is known as the treasure of silver dollar in the field of currency collection. It is the most popular and influential silver dollar variety among nearly one thousand modern silver coins in China, and it is also an important role in the currency system reform of modern China.
