Yuan Datou was one of the main currency in circulation during the period of the Republic of China. "Yuan Datou" is a colloquial term for Yuan Shikai's series of coins. To be precise, it is called "Yuan Shikai carrying Jiahe silver coin". In order to rectify the currency system, the Beiyang government unified silver coins. In February of the third year of the Republic of China (1914), it promulgated 13 articles of the national currency regulations and decided to implement the silver standard system.
According to the national currency regulations, "the unit price of Kuping pure silver is 6.4% and 8.0%, and it is named as Yuan", "one yuan silver coin, with a total weight of 7.2 cents, silver of 89, and copper of 11." there is no limit on the amount of one yuan silver coin, that is, one yuan silver coin is the standard loan currency with unlimited legal compensation. According to this regulation, in December 1914 and February 1915, the general mint and Jiangnan Mint successively issued a silver coin with the head of Yuan Shikai engraved on it, commonly known as "Yuan tou coin" or "Yuan Da tou".
The obverse design of "yuan Dadou" silver coin, with the left side of Yuan Shikai's uniform in the middle, Republic of China Version 3 On the top of the top is "the third year of the Republic of China", and the eighth, ninth and tenth editions of the Republic of China are "made in the year of the Republic of China"; on the back are two crossed rice ears, with the words of "one yuan", "middle circle" (Wujiao), "two corners" and "one jiao", and the words of "every two as a circle", "every five pieces as a circle" and "every ten pieces as a circle" at the top of the last few kinds of patterns Yuan Shikai's "signature version" has been loved by collectors for three years. One is the English signature of the Italian plate maker in Tianjin Mint in the third year of the Republic of China, and the other is the signature version of Yuan Shikai's left face on the back of the neck (capital English l. Giorgi). The above two types (5 kinds) are all sample coins, which have not been officially circulated and used, so they are rare.
The signature of this coin is yuan Dadou, with round paste, regular shape and excellent appearance. On the right side of Yuan Xiang, there is a vertical English letter "L. Giorgi", which is an abbreviation of "ruerge George", an Italian sculptor who is a foreign Mint expert in China.
This coin contains rich prehistoric elements. Although there are not many fine ancient coins inherited in the world, the value of each fine ancient coin is not poor. "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. After many years of casting and high reputation, the number of "yuan Dadou" increased and its circulation gradually widened. Although it is in a secluded area, it also has its traces.
In the three years of the Republic of China, Yuan Shikai's silver dollar price showed a sharp rise trend, including the o version of "yuan Dadou", the triangle circle version, the signature version, the rough hair version, and the Gansu version. Especially, the rise rate of Yuan Shikai's "signature version" is amazing. At present, the signature version of yuan Datou in the third year of the Republic of China is very rare. It is a trial coinage of Tianjin mint, but it is not in circulation and has a high market value. Yuan Shikai's "signature version" coins are sought after, the market value soars all the way, and the collection value of machines and tools!
