Jiangnan Province in Qing Dynasty was formerly nanzhili Jiangnan Province in Ming Dynasty, and its scope is roughly equivalent to Jiangsu Province, Shanghai city and Anhui Province today. In the sixth year of Kangxi (1667), the Qing government withdrew Jiangnan province and divided it into two provinces, Jiangsu and Anhui. Nanjing Mint marked its silver coins as "made in Jiangnan province", because there was a mint in Suzhou at that time that specialized in the production of copper coins, and its copper coins were all marked as "made in Jiangsu Province". In order to avoid confusion, Nanjing Mint marked its silver coins as "made in Jiangnan province". It is a provincial silver coin with no real name in the history of Chinese currency. So at present, the amount of life is very rare.
